TravelCard is a credit card sized battery for your Apple iPhone or Android device
If there is one thing that smartphone owners can't get enough of, it is battery life. That is why Go Design has produced a credit card sized battery for the Apple iPhone and Android handsets. Dubbed the TravelCard, the 1300mAh battery in the device can offer 5 additional hours of talk time, 4.5 hours of web browsing or 98 hours of standby time to a dying handset. Hey, there are times when a smartphone owner might sell his soul for 5 additional minutes of battery life, so these extra hours are a godsend.

Made of lightweight aircraft grade aluminum, the TravelCard is just 4.77mm thin, and weighs just 56.7 grams. This means you can literally store it in your wallet and spring it when you need that extra battery time. The accessory will be offered in white, black, silver and sapphire blue. And guess what, Apple has already certified the battery under its MFI (made for iPhone) program. The TravelCard will be manufactured in a factory certified by Apple.

The Kickstarter listed TravelCard has already exceeded its funding goal, and in fact has nearly tripled it with 23 days still left until the project is funded. Right now, you can still reserve a unit with a $40 pledge which is $5 off the expected retail price of $45. TheTravelCard is due to ship this May.
