After the successful completion of its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, the Chargerito phone charger is now up for sale. Priced at US$25, this accessory only measures 2x0.6x1.8 inches and can deliver a 5 V, 1 A, 5 W output. Available in both micro USB and USB Type-C versions, this accessory can be easily stored thanks to its folding prongs.

Carrying a regular-size phone charger around in your bag or pocket is almost impossible, mainly because of the unfoldable prongs. Introduced over a year ago as an Indiegogo project, the tiny Chargerito is now available via Android Authority's Tech Deals website for a mere US$24.99.

Without further ado, these are the highlights of this accessory that is advertised as "the world's smallest phone charger" by the aforementioned website:

  • Easily attachable to a keyring thanks to the included clip.
  • Folding prongs and integrated micro USB or USB Type-C connectors that eliminate the need for cables.
  • UL, RoHS, FCC, and PSE certified.
  • Very easy to carry around, measuring no more than 2 x 0.6 x 1.8 inches.
  • 100 - 240 VAC; 50 - 60 Hz 200 mA input and 5 VDC 1 A 5 W output.
  • Support for US standard outlets (NEMA 110 VAC).

As mentioned earlier, those interested can grab one piece for US$24.99. However, there are also two deals for those who need more: two for US$39.99 and three for just US$54.99. Sadly, Chargerito can only be shipped to the contiguous US states. Deliveries are expected to start at the end of the month.

Would you sacrifice faster charging times to have this accessory always at your disposal? Have you encountered some charger that is even smaller than this one so far? Feel free to share your "phone accessories I can't live without" discoveries in the comments section.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
