KADO launches Kickstarter campaign to bring its ultra thin 5mm wall charger into your wallet, bringing two times the portable charging power to smart devices in the United States and Europe
TEL AVIV – July 2017 – KADO, the company specializing in mobile charging devices, is launching KADO Wallet via Kickstarter. At just 5mm thick, KADO Wallet offers easy and convenient charging for smartphones, tablets, smart watches, headphones, and speakers with its Lightning®, Micro-USB, and USB-C compatibility. KADO Wallet will be available for pre-orders on Kickstarter starting at $35 for early backers.
KADO Wallet uses its advanced thin charging technology to pack a 10W wall charger and retractable cord that’s 2’ 9” long into a 0.2 inches (5mm) thin device. The cord is available in a variety of connectors, offering users the option to connect via Lighting®, Micro-USB, or USB-C, for a wide range of charging and device options. KADO Wallet provides users with the ability to power up their most essential devices without the bulk or messy cables of traditional chargers.
Imagine your current morning ‘out the door’ routine: phone, keys, wallet, and charger. Instead of the usual bulk and hassle of a mental checklist, what if your phone charger could simply fit in your wallet or purse? With KADO, the on-the-go and low-on-battery crowd can plan, pack and go with its ultra-thin, lightweight KADO Wallet charger.
KADO Wallet powers devices twice as fast as the average iPhone or Android charger, and is 3x smaller overall. KADO Wallet comes equipped with either US or European compatible prongs. KADO offers chargers in three different colors: white, black, and rose gold.
“We’re relying heavily on smartphones in our daily routines, from professional and personal communication to navigation and shopping,” said Co-Founder and Co-CEO, Daniel Assis. “I’m proud to offer users all over the world the unique technology we created that is compact enough to fit into the smallest spaces and charges devices at a faster speed. We want to eliminate the struggle that everyone faces when it comes to powering up devices.”
KADO previously raised $1.2 million in its seed-round from Altair Capital and other private investors. The company has unveiled a working prototype at CES in January 2017.
KADO was established in 2015, by Daniel Assis, Itay Hasid, and a group of private entrepreneurs aiming to give users the freedom to get power anywhere. KADO is headquartered in Israel and is privately funded. The company recently won the “Top Tech” award for best accessory by Digital Trends at MWC Barcelona 2017 and was voted among 100 leading Startups in Europe by Red Herring. The founders are serial entrepreneurs who previously created Mobeego (www.mobeego.com), a device that offered consumers one-time, disposable charging. Following Mobeego’s success it was acquired by US based Life Clips.
