Jackery Air hits Kickstarter funding goal
Jackery already offers charging tools for mobile devices, but with their $30K Kickstarter campaign reaching its funding goal, production of the new Jackery Air has been secured, making possible what they call the most thin rechargeable battery for mobile devices ever.
The company says they needed the funds to begin the “expensive production processes” which includes a super-thin design, high-capacity custom battery cells, and an aluminum case, all of which combine to offer up to five days of extra operational time. FIVE… DAYS.
The Jackery Air can offer this much time because of Jackery’s existing power lock technology which the company says enables the charger to retain its charging capabilities for up to six months when not in use. SIX… MONTHS.
A multi-platform capable charger, the Jackery Air can charge iOS, Android and Windows phone devices as well as tablets, multiple gaming devices and MP3 players. Two versions of the product will be produced including a 2800mAh version and a 5000mAh version. Both measure 4.9 x 4.0 inches in size, are only .3 inches in thickness and weigh 5.5 ounces or less.

Reaching Kickstarter goals
“We reached our $30,000 goal quickly because Jackery Air is simply a great product that is ideal for today’s mobile users,” said Julie Wang, Chief Operating Officer of Jackery.
“Without these initial funds from Kickstarter backers, we wouldn’t be able to cover the customized manufacturing which is essential to the Jackery Air’s small footprint and leading performance,” Wang added. “This product is a real game changer for the industry because it offers users an extremely portable charging option that matches or exceeds the design aesthetics of their own devices.”
The device will likely be most popular with business travelers, but because of its small size, it could become the default back up power source for all types of people.
