A super-thin smartphone charger is up on Kickstarter and has already exceeded its intended goal. The charger is pocketable and works with most types of devices, whether iPhone or Android (or others).

Running out of battery during a busy day is any smartphone owner's nightmare. Sure, you can carry a power bank or your phone's wall adapter, but those things are usually bulky and uncomfortable to carry. Wouldn't it be great if phone chargers were super slim, enough to fit into a pocket no matter how tight?

Enter KADO and their current Kickstarter project. The Israeli-based company has created the eponymous KADO, a super slim and easily portable smartphone wall charger. It is, as they themselves describe it, "insanely thin," slimmer than any phone and 50 percent thinner than a #2 pencil. The KADO works with any brand of device—iPhone, Android, Windows—as long as it uses a Lightning, USB Type-C, or micro USB port. Be warned, however: each wall charger only includes one of the cables mentioned, meaning that if you have devices with different ports you will need to purchase additional cables, or supply your own. The cable included with each KADO models measures 2'9" long.

The KADO is available not only in different port configurations but also in two wall plug versions, depending on where you live. There is a plug for US users, and one for European and rest-of-world customers. If you need both types for when you travel, you will have to buy to different chargers.

When purchasing a KADO wall charger, you get to choose from three colors: black, white, and metallic pink. A phone clip is also available; it keeps your phone mounted to the wall while it charges. The clip is also available in the three aforementioned colors.

KADO's Kickstarter campaign has currently met more than double its intended $25,000 goal. You can still back the project to get your own wall charger: a $39 pledge is all that is needed. An extra $5 nabs you the phone clip, and an additional buck allows you to choose one more charging cable. The campaign still has 28 days left.
