These days, you can pretty much carry an entire toolkit on your keychain — pliers, scissors, bottle openers, etc. But there’s one essential tool missing: a phone charger. The Chargerito: The World’s Smallest iPhone Charger (iPhone and Android) is here to change that by adding a full charging device to your key fob.
The Chargerito cuts the cord, literally, from the whole charging experience. Instead, you plug it directly into the wall and set your iPhone atop it like a dock. Just unfold the prongs and you’re ready to juice up. It’s only 2″ x 1.8″, making it a perfect addition to your keychain. Not only will you always have a charger on the go, but you also won’t have to worry about shoving a bulky portable charger or a full charging cable into your pocket or bag.
It raised over $80,000 through crowdfunding, so it’s obvious that people are looking for a better charging solution. Pocket and purse space are precious. The ability to carry your charger with you everywhere, without wasting any of that space, is a revelation. And since you’re probably wondering, yes, the Chargerito is MFi-certified by Apple — that means it won’t harm your phone in any way. Oh, and it doubles as a bottle opener because why not?
