iPhone-USB Charger Fits In Your Wallet

Noah Dentzel, designer of ChargeCard sat down with BYTE's Boonsri Dickinson to discuss why he decided to do all manufacturing for his USB charger connection in the US and why Kickstarter was a great way to raise $161,000 to get his startup off the ground.

Noah Dentzel comes from a family of artists. His design of ChargeCard is a bit geekier than that of his relatives who are known for their carousels.

Dentzel was working in IT when he used to get in trouble whenever his phone's battery died. Feeling that it limited his ability to be mobile, Dentzel decided to make a product that would fit into his wallet and would enable him to connect his phone to the nearest USB port including laptops, desktops, cable boxes, game consoles, and cars.

Dentzel raised an impressive $161,000 on Kickstarter and is using the money to start full-scale production on the wallet-sized USB product.
