Jumper Card – Jumper Cables For Your Phone (Review)

20140126105224-Hand_holding_card

If there’s one thing I really like, it’s gadgets that serve multiple purposes. No one likes carrying around multiple items if there is one device or gadget that can do them all, a “Swiss Army” type of thing. For instance, no one likes carrying around separate cables for charging all their devices but it’s definitely a necessity considering how much we rely on our smartphones and tablets. Jumper Cable has a just the product for you and your cable woes that not only features a tidy way to manage your cable needs, but also as a means to act as an emergency charging solution.

What you get is a card sized emergency charging solution that you carry in your pocket. This all-in-one solution means that you only have to carry around this one device that can charge your phone, sync data with a computer, and even has a handy LED light for those times when you need a bit of extra illumination. This is one of the smallest cable + power bank solutions I’ve ever seen and is definitely a lot more handy than most. It recharges itself over a standard USB connection while being able to charge devices with a Lightning port, old 30-pin Apple port, and micro-USB ports. This will charge all model iPhones and most Android devices.

To use the Jumper Card, just pop out the cable and plug it into your device. Then switch the little toggle side to “power” and a green light will turn on indicating that it is on and charging. Once the light turns off, it means all power has been depleted from it. The battery in this is only a 480mAh unit so it will only be able to power your device for about an extra hour of talk time. Just enough time for any emergency situation.

Jumper Card is currently undergoing Indiegogo funding and needs to raise a goal of $10000 to cover manufacturing costs with an estimated release date of April 2014. If you decide to contribute to the campaign, you can pick on of these up for a low, $19 pledge (sold out). There are other tiers you can also contribute too and each has special bonuses the more you contribute. You can check out the Indiegogo page here.
