ChargeCard iPhone 5 Charger Fits in a Wallet

The ChargeCard began as a Kickstarter project that was funded last summer. At the time, the product only offered support for Apple's 30-pin connector and Micro USB as Apple's new Lightning connector had yet to be introduced, but a new version for the iPhone 5 that supports Lightning is now available for purchase.

Designed to fit inside of a wallet, the ChargeCard is twice as thick as a standard credit card. It comes equipped with both a USB plug and a foldable Lightning cable, allowing the iPhone 5 to be charged via any available USB port.
Lightning ChargeCard is your iPhone's new best friend. Your iPhone 5 is your most important tool, but it's just glass and aluminum once your battery dies. With ChargeCard, you'll have a Lightning cable with you at all times, so you can juice up from any USB port and turn that glass back into an iPhone.
Currently, the ChargeCard is not MFi Certified, and it should be noted that the current beta version of iOS 7 warns users when an unauthorized accessory is used.

The ChargeCard retails for $24.99 and can be purchased from BiteMyApple.co or directly from the manufacturer's website.

I think adding to a keyring is a better option:

Not for me. I don't like carrying a **** ton of crap on my keyring. In fact, the home alarm and car alarm fob are too much already.

The keyring only connects your phone to a computer, which means you have to have your computer with you at all times to get a charge. The ChargeCard, which I first saw on Kickstarter, requires nothing but a card you carry in your wallet/pocket. Big difference.


Umm, news flash! The ChargeCard is NOT a battery, you still need to plug it in to a USB port on any computer to charge your iOS device, just like the other keyring device mentioned.

I would think its MFi certified.


I'm going to update the post, but this accessory is not yet MFi certified. The company is working on it, apparently.

Seriously.. it is just a cable..:eek:

Until I enter the site, i still thought its a battery! :rolleyes:

If it is a battery where the middle USB port is for recharging it, it worth that 30 bucks... but just a cable? That is insane. :confused:

Is ChargeCard Made for iPhone? As in, is it official Lightning gear?

ummm "news flash" (love it when ppl say that, like humor, i guess) but I did confuse this product with another which contains battery and is tiny, which works well on a film shoot since it's in my pocket any/every where, though small charge but enough for emergency.

If it's to use on the go, then I would have to ask someone in that place to lend me a computer or a power brick. I guess is cool if you need to carry a cable and brick w/ you everywhere then you just really have to carry the brick only.


True, but available USB ports, in some form or other, are becoming more popular -- many cars have them, airplane seats have them, power bars are starting to include them, etc. Airport lounges offer them. Even some restaurants do too now.

You're right, this sort of device is not strictly needed in the sense that if you know you're going somewhere where you may want to charge your phone, you will remember to bring your own cable and adapter. But having something like this is a good "better than nothing" option for when you're suddenly stuck or forgot your main charger.
