How often do you hear that distressing beep letting you know your phone is about to shut off due to low power? It happens to all of us. You see people crowding around outlets in airports and coffee shops to recharge their phones before they head out to their next destination. Are you ready for a change? Designer Tsung Chih-Hsien has created an idea that all of us will love, a cardboard battery that can recharge our phone for two, four, or six hours, then you just toss it in the trash. The idea is so innovative that it landed the Red Dot Design Award. Tsung named the device the Mini Power.
Imagine if you could have a handful of these tiny cardboard batteries stashed in your car, briefcase, handbag, or pocket, ready for the next time that annoying low battery beep sounds. The idea is still in development, but who would not line up to support Tsung on a crowd funded project?
