to just plainly introduce the Fuel as the a portable charger for your cell phone is probably not the fairest thing to do, really. for it is now possibly the world’s smallest cell phone charger, measuring a mere 1.3″ x 0.9″ x 0.6″ (33 x 23 x 15 mm) and despite its diminutive size, it still packs in a 220 mAh lithium-ion battery that is good for between 20 to 30 minutes of extra talk time or up to 3 hours of standby time, depending on the type of handset you have. so just really how small it is? well, to put things into perspective, it is barely half the length of a regular car key and that’s how small it is. while the half hour so extra minutes might now be something to shout about, it could be all the time you need to get out of lost situations, possibly save your skin, or save your job. remember, when you are desperate, every minute counts. we don’t foresee the micro size Fuel to be your main backup plan, but it could be for those times where you might not want to bring or have forgotten bring your main backup portable charger. all you have to do is, juice it up and slip it into your keyring and you will have the emergency power always – the whole twenty to thirty minutes of it. other features include LED status light, standalone on/off switch, micro-size electronics for regulating charging and discharging of the battery, multiple safety redundancy features such as PCM, as well as battery management IC, and a cute aesthetic in the form a miniature jerry can made from pure die-cast aluminum. the Fuel features a micro USB that plugs directly to most smartphones, except for Apple’s, of course. the Fuel Portable Charger is currently on Kickstarter seeking your support to make it a reality and you can secure one for just $22. scroll down for a pledge video to learn more.
