BuQu Tech Turning To Kickstarter for ChargeSmart Campaign

Kickstarter has had a huge impact on the tech world in the last few years. While the website is known for its  impact on the gaming and entertainment world -  it’s bread and butter has always been in helping people coming up with gadgets that make lives just a little bit better. The latest project along those lines is BuQu Tech’s new ChargeSmart case for Apple’s iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S.

The ChargeSmart is said to double the runtime of the average iPhone 5 and 5s while also serving as a protective sleeve for the phone.

The company has said that it will launch a Kickstarter campaign for the ChargeSmart case on October 1. The funding goal for the battery case is said to be $55,000 and the campaign will run through Halloween.

The Kickstarter campaign is said to feature a number of tiered rewards for those who choose to donate. Among the rewards being offered up are the case at a price that is below market value, a BuQu Tech exclusive portable battery and other BuQuTech gear and battery charges.

“We’re experts in smart power products with more than 25 years’ experience in portable power,” said Ophir Marish, CEO of BuQu Tech in a recent release announcing the campaign.

Among the features of using the case and the app, users will be able to set aside a certain amount of battery charge for emergenices. This power level will not be used unless it is to be done for specific reasons. Users will also be able to turn the battery case on and off as well as dim the LEDs. In addition, it will be possible to check the battery levels for both the case and the internal phone at a moment’s notice.

“What makes ChargeSmart different is that it will extend the life and performance of the iPhone’s internal battery. ChargeSmart comes with an app, available for free from the Apple App Store, that will communicate with the ChargeSmart battery case, using proprietary charging algorithms to charge the iPhone’s internal battery. The result? The iPhone’s battery will run better, for longer,” Marish said.
