Chargerito

The World's Smallest Phone Charger

Chargerito is a tiny mobile device charger that plugs into your wall. It fits easily in any pocket, so you always have a charger on hand. Chargerito is not another battery pack you have to charge separately or a USB charger that has to plug into another device to charge.

Bottle opener? Yup it's built-in

Pointy prongs stay flush in your pocket,
then unfold to plug into any outlet

whether it's a phone, wearable, or tablet

A truly well-designed product. Simple and elegant, it serves its purpose perfectly.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take Chargerito to charge a device?

It varies significantly according to the device being charged, room temperature, age of the battery, etc., but Chargerito charges as quickly as the leading in-wall chargers out there. It takes about two hours to charge an iPhone 5 from 0 to 100%. That's twice as fast as it takes your phone to charge off your computer's USB cable.

Can I get a discount for ordering more than one unit?

Yes, if you are a retailer interested in selling Chargerito and order a minimum of 12 units, you'll receive a volume discount on top of the regular crowd funding discount. Please email us at info@chargerito.com to get set up as a retailer.

What certifications does this product have?

We are still finalizing the process, but Chargerito will be UL certified before it is shipped. UL is the most universal and stringent consumer electronics standard in the world. It ensures electrical products meet a variety of safety checks for consumer use.

Why do a crowdfunding campaign, why not just build the product and start selling it the old fashioned way?

Developing a new product requires a lot of upfront costs, including UL certification, tooling, circuit board testing, and prototyping. We're a team of independent entrepreneurs without any professional financial backing, so we require the help of our customers to help mitigate these costs. Also, we think this product is awesome, but we have no idea if the rest of the world does too. Your contribution to this campaign is a vote of confidence that you want to see us bring this product to the world. Most importantly, it allows us to give a big discount to people like you who help us by pre-ordering the product.

What are the electrical specifications?

In: 100 - 240VAC 50 - 60Hz 200mA
Out: 5 VDC 1A 7.5W

When is a Chargerito most useful?

A lot of people have a charger at home, work, and maybe even in their car, but there are all those random scenarios where you find yourself with low battery and no easy way to charge your phone. Maybe you're visiting your grandmother who's never owned a mobile cell phone or traveling and forgot to pack all the essentials. Maybe it's a late night at the bar and you really need to send a text or you just landed on a late flight and need to tell your friend where to pick you up. Since Chargerito is always with you, you never have to worry about running out of battery at the wrong time.

How is my device held securely as it charges?

Chargerito fits firmly into the wall outlet and can support a lot of weight, as shown in our demo video, so even something as heavy as an iPad will charge safely on it. That said, if something were to knock into the side of your device forcefully, such as a toddler, cat, or oblivious person, that could knock it off its perch (chargerito would break before your device does, so it's a much less expensive fix). So when using Chargerito, you should look for an outlet that is safe from these hazards.

How does crowdfunding work?

Our crowd funding campaign is only successful if people pre-order at least $50,000 of Chargerito's within the timeframe. Only then will backers' credit cards be charged and we will start the first manufacturing run of Chargeritos to ship to everyone who pre-ordered. These payments are all processed by Tilt, a leader in crowd funding. If we do not reach our goal, your card will never be charged and Chargerito will never get made. :(

Will the Chargerito charge my device if I don't see it on your list?

As long as your device has a micro-USB or Apple lightning port, Chargerito can charge it. If you're still unsure, you can email us at info@chargerito.com with your device type and we'll help you figure it out.

What is your return policy?

We will offer a full refund for the price of your order within 30 days of delivery. Shipping cost for returns will not be included nor will any additional customs duties or levies paid for international orders. Please note that all refunds are made in the original US dollar amount that you paid. We unfortunately cannot account for any local currency fluctuations. Please contact us at info@chargerito.com to process a return.

What types of electrical outlets does Chargerito work with?

Right now it only works with U.S. standard electrical outlest (NEMA 120V AC outlets). Soon we plan to offer the chargerito for other types of electrical outlets found throughout the world.

When will I receive my order?

We expect to ship the first units in February 2017.

Will Chargerito work if my device is in a case?

Yes for the vast majority of cases. We built the connectors to stick up enough that Chargerito will not interfere with any cases.

Where do you ship?

We ship anywhere in the U.S. and try to ship anywhere in the world. During the checkout process, you'll choose your country to receive the shipment. If you don't see your country on there, sorry but we can't ship to you just yet! Don't fret, once this product is available to the public, we'll expand the list of countries where it will be available.
