Megalo Mini -- Small and Powerful Pocket Charger for Smartphones

July 3, 2014

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 03, 2014

Megalo Mini is a powerful pocket charger for smartphones that is currently raising funds on Kickstarter. It was developed by New York-based entrepreneurs Mike Krikheli and Jeff Macks as an alternative to gimmicky chargers, which are too bulky to be truly portable.

The Megalo Mini pocket charger packs in enough power to charge a smartphone the whole day. It has a capacity of 1400 mAh, which is enough to charge an iPhone 5 up to 75% and many Android-based phones up to 100% depending on the model.

Megalo Mini fits comfortably into any jeans pocket and can be easily attached to a keychain, which makes the device ultra portable and at hand when you need it. That is why it is fondly called the 'portablest' of all chargers.

The Megalo Mini pocket charger is an elegant device in terms of design and user-friendliness. Its sleek design and soft matte rubbery surface permits carrying the charger together with your phone in your pocket without causing the screen of your phone to get scratched. Plus, Megalo Mini comes with sturdy built-in cables, making it super compact and mobile.

"There's no need for extraneous wires, unlike with most other portable chargers," says Michael Krikheli. "Our charger does what an ultra-portable charger is supposed to do: it provides extra power for a phone in the most convenient and effortless way possible."

According to the inventors, Megalo Mini will find its niche on the market of gadgets with a sleek design. "91% of the U.S. population own a mobile phone. A lot of them would leave home in the morning to work or study to come back in the evening. We wanted to give them the security that during those hours when they may not have access to a power plug, they are still covered in terms of battery life, they are accessible and connected," says Michael Krikheli.

Backers of Megalo Mini on Kickstarter can get numerous rewards for their pledges. For instance, a Megalo Mini pocket charger at a $34 early-bird price; 25% off its future retail price of $45.

Megalo Mini currently comes in black and white, but as soon as the funding goal is reached, new colors will be available.

The Kickstarter campaign ends on July 15, 2014. For more information, please visit the Megalo Mini Kickstarter page and have a look at the Press Kit.
