In a near future, lugging around large smartphone battery chargers may be a thing of the past. The cool thing is that the solution isn’t that insanely hard to imagine either, yet it’s incredibly genius. The solution is elegant and it can be hauled around in your pocket. This incredibly genius idea comes from concept designer Tsung Chih-Hsien who presented the Mini Power portable smartphone battery chargers at the 2014 Red Dot Awards and won.

The Mini Power portable chargers could be described as a paper battery technology put into small USB flash drives. If you have ever bought a USB Bluetooth stick you know they are literally as small as a thumbnail. The Mini Power chargers are as small and would come in sizes of 2 hours, 4 hours and 6 hours worth of battery power. That’s what I call portable smartphone battery chargers!

The usefulness of these pocket-sized chargers is virtually unprecedented. Depending on the time you expect to be out, you simply pick the one that will serve you the best without it having to be lugged around in a backpack. Just put it in your pocket and be on your merry way. It’s literally as simple as that.

Whether these incredibly useful Mini Power portable smartphone chargers will ever be realized is hard to say, however, now when people know about them and perhaps get insanely excited about them, the chance of realization is increased immensely.

It’s hard to say what each of them would cost, but they would probably be way cheaper than most portable smartphone chargers on the market today. The technology is definitely there and it all boils down to technical know-how and the funding. Perhaps a Kickstarter would be a good idea at this stage. We here at Bit Rebels will be following the development of this gadget closely and report back to you as soon as we have more information. In the meantime, have a gander at the awesome portable Lightsaber Smartphone Battery Charger and marvel at the geekiness it presents.

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens up for release in December this year, there are a lot of people that are looking for retro Star Wars tech left over from an age gone past. You know, the quirky merchandise that spawned as soon as the first movie was a cultural phenomenon. Well, most of that stuff are collector’s items and should, of course, not be used. However, I might just have something that could make you the coolest geek on the block. It is the ultra new smartphone Star Wars Lightsaber Battery Charger, made available by Brando.

This particular Lightsaber Battery Charger is a replica of Darth Vader’s Lightsaber, and when put on a table it looks as impressive as the real thing, if there ever was one. It’s a USB charger that uses a Lithium-ion battery and can hold up to 2800 mAh of juice for when your smartphone turns to the dark side.

So how big is it? Well, as the saying suggests, size is not supposed to matter, but in this case it actually does, for the realism and geekiness of the gadget itself. The Lightsaber Battery Charger measures 16.0 x 4.2 x 3.1 cm and is compatible with iPhone, Android & Window Mobile Phones. Sure, it is not the real of a “real” Lightsaber, but it is not that far off. In order to replicate that great feeling of turning off and on the Lightsaber itself, there is a button that you press to start or stop the charging.

At the business end of the lightsaber battery charger, there are four red LEDs that will turn on when you are charging your mobile device. One of the LEDs will flicker while you are charging the actual Lightsaber itself. However, when you are charging your devices all LEDs are constantly turned on.

How much can we expect this Lightsaber Battery Charger to cost then? Well, it is already available, and you can get your very own for just $ 48.00 over at Brando. It is a pretty reasonable price for a gadget that will allow you to wield the power of a real Jedi fighter. Sure, you might have to convert to the dark side, but that is probably just a preference that we should be able to overlook, don’t you think?
