One struggle is ever-prevalent to all cell/smartphone users, no matter your manufacturer: running out of batter while on the go. Seeing your batter bar nearly empty immediately inspires fear when no chargers are around, because what if you miss a call or a sexy snapchat?
Two Montreal natives have provided the answer to everyone's battery woes with the bKey, a wireless emergency smartphone battery that fits right on your keychain and is able to boost your phone's battery bar wherever you are, allowing for an extra 30 minutes talking/texting/internet'ing.
As big as a USB stick, the bKey doesn't need any cables or adapters, and fits directly into your phone. Just charge the bKey on a computer and you can roam around stress free, knowing that a charge to your cellphone is always on your person.
Shaun Teblum and Rob Gold are the Montrealers behind the bKey, and started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project 21 days ago. In that short amount of time the bKey exceeded it's $25, 000 goal, accumulating $28, 273 in donations.
You can still fund the Kickstarter, the benefit being that major backers will get special swag and priority delivering when the bKey launches, which projected to be this December. Sleek, functional, and incredibly useful, this is a Montreal-made product worth getting behind.
The bKey will be available for iPhone 5/5C/5S, iPhone 4/4S and iPod, Samsung, HTC, LG and many more Windows and Blackberry devices, with different versions used depending on the phone. You can find out all the details at the bKey official website.
