An iPhone charging cable that doubles as a battery backup for a mere $40.00, sounds interesting right? Well that’s exactly what Native Union’s new Kickstarter page for JUMP promises. Available in Lightning and Micro USB, the JUMP pulls double duty, charging your phone (and itself once the phone is fully charged) when plugged in, and later when you’re out and about, the JUMP’s 800mAh battery capacity can restore your iPhone’s charge by roughly 1/3. Even better, the 40 gram JUMP is pocket-sized with incorporated channels for wrapping its “tangle-free” nylon cables so you won’t be lugging around a heavy tangled mess.
I don’t go in for many Kickstarters, but JUMP’s two in one solution, small size, and price are all working for me.
