CulCharge is a tiny charging and data cable for your smartphone

How often have you been in a situation when your smartphone battery is low, but there's no charger around to give it a boost with? In case that happens a lot to you, then you probably need something like the CulCharge. Basically, it is a USB cable that you can use to charge a smartphone's battery as long as there is a USB port nearby. However, what makes this accessory special is that it is really small. In fact, the CulCharge is just 6 centimeters (2.3 inches) long so it will fit perfectly on your keychain. 

The CulCharge is available in several variants, depending on what smartphone you're using. There is an iPhone 5 model with a Lightning connector and a microUSB version compatible with pretty much all Android and Windows Phone handsets. Users of older handsets can grab the miniUSB model, or the 30-pin variant compatible with the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S. Note that the CulCharge cable can not only recharge a phone's battery, but also act as a data cable for file transfer.

But CulCharge will need potential buyers' support before it is ready to hit the retail stores. There is a page over at Indiegogo where units can be preordered, including in wholesale batches, with a funding goal set at $15 000. The first 200 CulCharge cables can be pre-ordered for just $8, or $15 for the iPhone 5 compatible model. If all goes well, the first batches of CulCharge will ship in October of 2013.

How much stuff can one be expected to shlep around on one's keychain?

I can't be the only one who noticed that the MicroUSB and MiniUSB labels are reversed in this picture, am I?

This product is a 'Fail' as your phone needs to be held up by your plug, I don't think so.

Check their video, there are several moments where they show that it holds with no problem, even from TV or computer - either on USB part or plug
