Thunder…Wait for it…BOLT!

For an average person on a busy day, the 10-hour talktime that your Smartphone says it will provide seems like an empty promise. Fact is, you run out of battery even before you make that most important call of the day. Emails need to be checked and answered, SMS and IM’s keep pouring in and all of these are a juice drain. Truth is, you need a BOLT! The world’s smallest portable battery backup and wall charger combined!

I asked the team at Fluxmob, what led them to create the BOLT, and their simple answer was “passion about mobile technology.” It makes perfect sense if you ask me. This is an era where Smartphones are not just gadgets but an extension of our personalities and a tool that makes life simpler for us. We no longer need to stay strapped to our desktops to answer emails. Overseas Skype calls are made in a jiffy, stand-alone cameras are redundant and more importantly my designer friends get to sketch on the go!

All these factors make BOLT a true grab and go solution. It has been intentionally designed to replace your standard wall charger. It automatically charges with your phone and is ready to go when you are. Add a simple adapter and carry the BOLT across the globe with you!

Team Fluxmob summarizes their story very eloquently, “As the speed of our gadgets increases, there is one component that has seemed to flat line. Battery life. There are portable batteries on the market, but none of them met our expectations. To remedy this, we set out to create something smart, simple, and accessible to consumers.” Thus began the BOLT inception.

As strong believers of packing light, especially if you’re always on the go, and need to be prepared for life’s daily challenges, the team created a charger that reflects their minimalistic lifestyle.

Existing portable batteries on the market are typically geared for emergency charging. What this means is that either the batteries are too big to be practical or they don’t hold enough charge to be useful everyday. And since a majority of the other battery backup on the market can ONLY be charged via USB, BOLT’s design eliminated this issue.

A yearning for a simplistic solution pushed for the creation of BOLT, the world’s smallest battery backup and wall charger combined.

    Looks really nice. I’ve been looking for a good portable charger for a while now and this one seems to fit the bill perfectly!

    …It’s a shame you don’t do one for a UK plug.

  • I am looking to use my smartphone as a GPS when cycling on long day rides, but the problem is, the constant battery drain. This little gadget might be just the thing for me… thanks!

    The salesman sold me a red Bolt saying I could count on two full charges for my iPhone 5S.
    So I bought the red Bold for a week long trip in wilderness territory where I would be using the iPhone to take pictures. When the iPhone went to red I only got one recharge from my Bolt. Is Bolt the only game in town ? What should I have purchased to do the job of getting 2 full charges on my iPhone 5S ?

  • Right now it sounds like Drupal is the top blogging platform
    available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
