Have you experienced that sinking feeling when you look down and see the battery level hovering into the red zone indicating your mobile phone is about to die when you are nowhere near a plug point? Such situations will soon be a thing of the past for mobile phone users, with the introduction of MoBeeGo by NASDAQ-listed Life Clips Inc, an innovative one-time charger which does not require any pre-charging nor the use of cumbersome cords.
What is MoBeeGo?
MoBeeGo is brought in to Malaysia by Kelvin Hun and Edric Foong, the founders of Veloster Technology, a local company that specialises in cutting-edge devices and technological gadgets.
Described as an “energy drink” for mobile phones, MoBeeGo charger is designed with two elements. One is a re-usable ultra-compact adapter, which is suitable for Google Android and Apple iOs smartphones that connects to the phone’s charging outlet. The second element is the battery can (shaped to look like a can of an energy drink) or charging unit, which is mounted onto the adapter that attaches to the phone.
The charger removes the need to find the closest outlet to charge your mobile phones, and you no longer need to hibernate almost all apps to save battery. It is small and compact for convenient use, and can be easily stored in pockets, purses, backpacks and briefcases. Similar to an energy drink that keeps you going throughout the day, MoBeeGo can power a smart phone up to 4 hours* of usage. It has a 10-year shelf life, hence you can keep the batteries on hand even after prolonged storage. MoBeeGo is intended to offer convenience and safety, and to be an immediate solution to complement the busy lifestyle of today’s mobile consumers who often carry multiple devices at one go.
*This varies across phone models, and the intensity rate of phone usage and type of usage (i.e. navigation apps, phone calls, music, etc.)
“With today’s busy lifestyle, we rely heavily on our mobile devices to keep us connected to the world around us. Whether we are searching for places to eat on our mobile or playing games during our commute, today’s mobile apps consume lot of power from your devices. The problem lies in trying to squeeze a full day's worth of power into such mobile devices. Hence, MoBeeGo is designed with ease of use in mind and lets you charge instantly when you need it – anytime and anywhere,” said Hun.
The main highlight of how convenient MoBeeGo is to users is through its accessibility. You do not need to carry cans and cans of juice every time you headed out. Just have your adapter with you and proceed to any myNEWS.com stores for a can!
