Auxillite allows you to charge your Apple iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus while listening to music



It would be a shame if Auxillite doesn't meet its goal of raising $60,000 on Kickstarter. The product is an add-on accessory that allows owners of the Apple iPhone 7 or Apple iPhone 7 Plus to charge their handset and listen to music at the same time. Thanks to Apple's removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack on the latest iPhone models, that combination is impossible with the accessories that come out of the box.

The Auxillite accessory is a small round cylinder with ports at both ends. On the left side is a lightning port for charging your iPhone. And yes, rapid charging is a feature. An LED light tells you if your phone is in the process of charging. On the right side is a 3.5mm port for earphones. The IP67 dust and water resistant Auxillite is available in Black and Silver. There is also a premium version called the Auxillite S which comes with an adjustable stand so that you can prop up your iPhone.

With 25 days to go, the campaign has raised $36,317 which means that it is short $23,683. You can pledge $9 to have an Auxillite shipped to you in December. Send the guys $13 and you can have an Auxillite S sent to you this coming January. If you pledge $28, you can get an Auxillite with a 24-bit DAC (Digital Audio Converter). This particular model is available for iOS and Android phones.

Charging phone while listening to a pair of cans is such a premium feature now.

Not really. Most people need it. Making it an accessory is so wrong

If the wireless alternatives come at an equally good price and quality then (maybe) I'll consider removing 3.5 a right move

They made thinner phone because they didn't need higher specs (lots of RAM, big battery etc), then they need space to put more specs, so they removed headphone jack. PS: Samsung was able to fit similar or more specs in smaller chassis than iPhone 7 plus.

PPS: The haptic engine for the new home button is where the headphone jack was, just saying.

Okay, so the haptic engine was important than headphone jack? I saw the event where they introduced iPhone, in there they gave 3 reasons, they have shown they can use lightning port, space, vision to make audio experience great. Only valid one seems to be "Space".

They're pushing wireless. Even the rumors of the upcoming S8 have it with no headphone jack. Motorola already took it out. Other manufacturers will follow, so we best get use to it.

when a simple feature to add a headphone jack with a lightning cable became so hard, third party manufacturers make money off it. Who would of thought a headphone jack has to be a premium feature, Its like buying a dlc to a game when it should be in the game. . great move apple, great move.

With every third party manufacturer making money off of it Apple makes more money from the licensing fees for their lightning port. Great move indeed.

Wow, I guess there's a lot of stupid people out there and apple makes a lot of money for being smart. Good for apple and its employees, too bad for the consumer that buys a mediocre product just because it's popular, I've been that stupid consumer.

Or maybe they just prefer iOS to Android? I dunno why that is such a hard concept for some of you to grasp. There is a thing call personal preferences. You should google it, find out what it means. I'll give you some time to figure out what it means.

Notice my comment said "a lot" not 'all' iphone users. So maybe, just MAYBE there are also a lot of stupid people buying into 'iOS', been around it, been one. Sometimes people buy things to fit it, not because they prefer it. You should google it, find out how a big portion of society really works. I'll give you sometime.

"Notice my comment said "a lot" not 'all' iphone users. So maybe, just MAYBE there are also a lot of stupid people buying into 'iOS', been around it, been one." Two can play at that game. A LOT of people who buy Android phones are poor (in the most politically correct way of saying it possible). Maybe just maybe Android is for people below the poverty line, by your own logic. I bet you'll want to refute that.... "Sometimes people buy things to fit it, not because they prefer it. You should google it, find out how a big portion of society really works. I'll give you sometime." Sigh.......I don't think you have a grasp on what you're preaching fam'. Perhaps you should hit up that search function as well.

This coming from an oxymoron. LOL I don't think you read your comments before you post them, that pretentiousness takes over your logic and urges you to get your frustrations out. I agree a lot of people that buy android are poor and many android manufacturers offer really affordable phones. What is wrong with that? The tone of your comment insinuates that being poor is wrong, when a lot of people don't have a choice, yet you try to emphasize "in the most politically correct way", like I said, Oxymoron. But unlike poor people that don't have a choice, a lot of iPhone users do have a choice, and they still choose to be stupid. I'm not sure if we can partially blame people for being stupid.

"that pretentiousness takes over your logic and urges you to get your frustrations out." The irony in this statement is in one word, laughable. "I agree a lot of people that buy android are poor and many android manufacturers offer really affordable phones. What is wrong with that?" Define "affordable". Cheap doesn't equate affordability when accounting for key aspects. "The tone of your comment insinuates that being poor is wrong, when a lot of people don't have a choice, yet you try to emphasize "in the most politically correct way", like I said, Oxymoron." I don't recall ever saying being poor was anything but being poor. I've been poor before, there's no Shane to be had there. I even tried to PC it for added measure. "But unlike poor people that don't have a choice, a lot of iPhone users do have a choice, and they still choose to be stupid. I'm not sure if we can partially blame people for being stupid." A) What? B) Huh?? C) At this point, I'm genuinely confused as to if you know what "stupid" means. If you define stupid as people who think differently than you do....boy have I got news for you. You're not the special little snowflake who gets to decide everything, and (SPOILERS!!!!!) I'm pretty sure you aren't qualified to make those choices. Especially when you're sitting behind a keyboard calling people out of their name because choose to discredit your false reality. D) Google search "stupid" then come back here :D.

You're the least person that should talk about irony. Lol By affordable meaning something withing peoples budget. Ex: last years nexus 5x, samsung galaxy j. Some of the moto phones, just to name a few devices. Hell even cheaper 200$ to 100$ phones. Some people simply use them to call, i mean it is a phone after all. I'm not claiming that I am special nor do i need to be in order to comment that. Stupid, ignorant, compulsive, uninformed, etc. Im sure all of these words have a grey area where they are all synonyms, take your pick and interpret it however you want, doesnt change the facts. I google searched 'stupid' and my pictured popped up, weird...

His point is that everyones budget is different, so "affordable" is subjective. Take me for example, I bought a 256GB iPhone 7 Plus and have a 128GB Pixel XL on order. I had a Note7, but returned it for obvious reasons. I also own a Lumia 950 XL, which I will be replacing with a HP Elite x3, and a Blackberry Passport Silver Edition. All within my budget.
