UsBidi is the smart charger your smartphone or tablet needs

 

UsBidi smart charger

Each year we see our devices evolve in the terms of the featured technology, daily used devices such as smartphones and tablets often receive new versions with updates on design, screen resolution, connectivity features, processors, memory and more. But where the mobile phone makers fail to evolve is progress in charging technology.

The reason why you have to charge your devices more often in time is that your charger is in an ongoing mission to slowly kill the battery. When your device is fully charged but the charger keeps being plugged into it, the battery will start heating and get damaged by mini-charging-cycles. The result of all this is a device that requires more often to be charged for a power up that will last shorter in time.

To extend your battery life and provide a better charging experience is created the UsBidi smart charger. Launched as “The world’s most intelligent charger”, it ran a ridiculously successful campaign on Indiegogo where from the pledge of $20,000 has raised up to $235,770 and growing for the next 65 left hours (the campaign is funded and at the moment it has and 65 hours left).

UsBidi improved charging technology

As we all know, the technology of charging has not changed much in time. Even we do not have a wireless charging tech that doesn’t require an extra plugged gadget to work. But let’s talk about wireless charging at another moment.

The UsBidi charger comes with a feature which its makers named as “auto power shut-off” or “auto-unplug”. This particular feature housed by the UsBidi claims to not harm your phone or tablet battery via mini-cycles or heating caused by charger when is plugged even after the battery has been fully charged.

Phone makers and experts always tell us to remove the charger after the device is charged, but that’s not always possible because we’re not always near to the device. The auto-unplug feature will automatically shut off the charger once the device is charged, it will keep being plugged to the phone but will not waste energy or overheat your phone.  The charger will not recharge the battery unless is removed and re-plugged into the device, you’ll no longer have to set up an alarm to remove the charger if you ever did that.

UsBidi specs and features

Besides the auto-unplug feature which I mentioned above, the smart charger comes with an LED indicator that will flash in different colors regarding how much the battery is charged, when the indicator goes red your device is fully charged.

Another important feature is the Touch Switch button that works only when your device is plugged into the USB ports of your computer or your car. When you press the Touch Switch button it will turn off the data-syncing and all the energy will be used to refuel your battery. This feature increases the charging speed by two times.

Besides the LED indicator, the UsBidi comes with a durable and colorful braided exterior with a magnetic end. The magnetic ending lets it hold tidy when is placed on any metallic surface. Thus, you’ll not have to search whole room to find your charger

UsBidi compatibility

UsBidi is made to work with your Android, iOS or Windows phone or tablet. It comes available for devices supporting different connector types.  The Micro USB version for your Android or Windows phone or tablet, the Apple MFi certified Lightning version for your iPhone or iPad and the Type C version for devices supporting this new and trending connector type.

What the UsBidi charger claims to do for you

Makers of the UsBidi claim that this smart charger will improve your charging experience, extend your device’s battery lifetime (it will not heal your battery from previous charging damages, it just claims to stop the ongoing harm on it via its auto-unplug feature), twice faster charging when plugged into USB port of a computer device or car, magnetic end to place it on any metallic surface, LED indicator that tells charging progress.
