Use a 9 volt battery to charge your device thanks to Plan V

With smartphones today doing just about everything a computer does, they use up a great deal of battery power. If you always have to charge your phone as you have used up all the battery then you may be interested in a Plan V from Flintu.

Plan V is on Kickstarter at the moment and is a key ring based device that is very small which allows you to charge up your phone using any ordinary 9 volt battery. The device doesn’t contain any charge of its own and is basically a very small adapter than lets you use an ordinary battery.

If your handset is getting unexpectedly low on battery and you don’t have your charger to hand but you have a 9 volt battery, you can use Plan V to give you around four hours talk time. While you may not fancy carrying around a battery with you, 9 volt batteries are available just about anywhere. So, as long as you have the device you can nip into a store and pick one up cheaply in emergencies. The device is 7 grams in weight and its size is about the same as a key. You can attach it to your key ring with your keys, so you always have it with you.

The Plan V is able to charge handsets with a micro USB charging point such as the Samsung Galaxy S5. However, in the future Flintu will be going for Apple AFI certification and stretching their goals on Kickstarter.

If you are interested in the type of emergency charging that the Plan V offers you can pre-order a unit with a AU$15 pledge.
