Forget waiting hours for your phone to charge – a new miniature pocket-charger claims to be able to charge an iPhone 6 from totally flat to 100 per cent in just five minutes. According to its makers, the ASAP Dash charges 16 times faster than standard portable chargers and boasts a battery life that lasts up to four times longer. It was the result of more than 14 months of work alongside tech and manufacturing experts in China.
The superfast charger was invented by Vinson Leow and his colleagues in Sydney. Other rapid charge chargers have a capacity of less than 2,000 mAh. By comparison, ASAP Dash stores 5,000mAh, which means one charge of the device can keep a phone going for more than 48 hours.
ASAP Dash chargers are available for $89 from Indiegogo – a 25 per cent discount on the retail price.
The company said it will start shipping the charger internationally in June and it is expected to go on general sale shortly after.
