Designed by Hollywood based Noah Dentzel and Adam Miller, Kickstarter project ChargeCard takes portable USB charging to the next level. If you're the kind of person that forgets to bring their charger along on trips, the ChargeCard may be just what the doctor ordered. Essentially a charging cable in a slim card-like shape, the device fits perfectly in your purse or wallet.
With a slim USB connector on one end and a 30-pin or micro-usb connector on the other, all you have to do is flip open the connector plug your phone in and you are good to go. With a $50,000 goal, the Kickstarter project first launched on July 18th was funded to$161,898 at August 27th.
Pre-orders are happening now for $25 at the ChargeCard website.

Seems legit. /Sarcasm
Anyway.. If I bring something like this to work, the USB ports on the workstation might be sideways (but not in my case) or like the ones I have to work with the USB *Ports are fairly high off the table.
Wouldn't the comms port on the phone be damaged from those kinds of stresses?
*EDIT: Replaced cable with ports.
Imo a better design would have been to have a USB cable snake around the inside plastic of the card and when needed, the cable could be whisked out and drawn out like a yoyo.
In fact.. I might patent that. lol.
Not really.. I'm too poor. Someone else here do it before Apple does.
I bet this won't even fit in most places! Is the phone just supposed to hang off of it? What a terrible, terrible design. I'd rather they redesign the cable altogether instead of making this.
