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.

Pay attention!

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.

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:

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.

Now that iOS7 not working with 3rd party lightning, will this thing work?

iOS7 works with 3rd party. it just may display a warning when you first plug it in.
