If you’ve ever struggled to charge your devices all at once, fret no more. Yet again, a Black woman has come to the rescue.
According to a news release, Sparkee, a Black-woman-owned tech company, released the world’s first-ever two-part charging system, which is now available for pre-order.
“Our world is becoming more reliant on our tech devices and it’s time to start innovating the charging experience,” said founder and creator Kyla Wilkinson in the news release. “I searched unsuccessfully for an aesthetically pleasing product that would charge my mobile devices without taking up too much space, so I decided to create one myself – because consumers shouldn’t have to choose between a creative design and better battery life.”
The Sparkee is described as a mobile charging puck and base combo that allows users to charge 3 devices simultaneously using NFC and USB-C charging ports. It reportedly recharges itself when placed onto the base, allowing for two full charges while on the go.
The launch of the device is a major move, and a smart one.
According to data released in 2018, the global market for mobile chargers were projected to reach $25.0 billion by 2022.
“Growing urbanization, rising disposable income, and increasing mobile phone penetration will boost the mobile charger market around the globe,” said BCC Research analyst and report author Mohammed Javed in a news release explaining the data. “Increasing penetration of high-specification electronic gadgets/devices that drain batteries at faster rates will further boost the mobile charger market in the near future.”
According to the release, Sparkee includes a mag-safe battery pack that magnetically attaches to the back of a phone for wire-free charging, plus a plug-in recharging cradle to power the assembly. It works with both IOS and Android.
