Charging your phone every night to 100% and keeping the battery like this for 8 hours is one of the main culprits behind early battery failure. We're here to change that.
Full Charge Hysteresis
If you still need your phone fully charged the next day, Chargie will fill your battery to 100% and then perform a hysteresis charge by letting it discharge down to 95%, before charging to 100% again. This is a very good trade-off between reduced battery damage and autonomy.
We'll always be using the highest-quality plastics when manufacturing Chargie. Founder Edition is made from 3D-printed PLA, a corn-derived polymer.
Proximity activated lamp switch
In addition to charge protection, Chargie can also act as a smart switch for your USB lamps and devices like hard drives, flash drives and so on. Simply put, when you leave the room, the lamp turns itself off. When you come back - you've guessed it. You just have to carry your phone with you.
Large currents need large hardware. We equipped Chargie with a low-resistance electronic switch able to carry up to 4.8 amps instead of using noisy relays. If used properly, Chargie will last a lifetime.
Chargie uses a smartphone app to work. We'll be updating the app with more functions on the run, so pleasant surprises will arrive with each new version - for free, over the air.
