Petalite Flux is a very nippy mobile charger

The Petalite Flux is a portable mobile charger that juices up in just 15 minutes.

It’s not the quickest charger we’ve seen – the Pronto and Zap&Go take just five minutes to reach full charge – but it is still very speedy. It’s seeking $30,000 on Indiegogo.

Its 2,600mAh of power is enough to fully charge most mobiles, like the Samsung Galaxy S4, iPhone 5S and iPhone 6. Handsets with bigger batteries however, like the iPhone 6 Plus (2,915mAh) and Samsung Galaxy S5 (2,800mAh), won’t get a full charge from it.

It won’t fully charge a tablet either, as they have bigger batteries.

It’s small enough to fit in your pocket, and weighs less than 100g.

The dock is a lot chunkier, however. So while you can pop the charger itself in your pocket, you’ll need a bag if you want to take the dock with you, on a weekend break, say.

It works with both iPhone and Android handsets, as it has a microUSB and Lightning cable ports. And it promises a long lifespan, lasting over 1,500 charges before giving up the ghost.

Petalite is offering some discounts if you get in early, too. The standard battery is just $27 (RRP $40), while the dock is $37. You can buy both together – as each on their own are useless – for $64 (RRP $90). That translates to £41, which isn’t bad.

It’s already raised nearly $9,000, and still has 27 days to go.
