Always fumbling for the charger cable to plug your phone in before hitting the sack? Well, the Gecko Indiegogo campaign is trying to make charging more convenient with its special magnetic system.
Not to be mistaken for a wireless charger, the Gecko is a magnetic charging connector that plugs into the microUSB or Lightning port of your smartphone. It magnetically connects with the adapter or dongle, which is plugged into the charging cable’s tip or a power bank, charging the phone “wirelessly.”
It’s not really wireless, but the Gecko does eliminate the hassle of plugging the cable into the device. Is it a groundbreaking product? No, but it’s an option for those with phones that do not offer wireless charging or even reversible connectors like the Lightning charger or USB Type-C cables, which certainly makes charging a little more convenient. After all, that’s what the Gecko really is all about, convenience.
You need to keep the short Gecko connector, which flips to the back of your device, plugged in. The adapter plugs into the connector tips, whether it’s a microUSB or Lightning charger, and voila, all you need to do is put your device near the cable’s now magnetic tip and it should snap into place with your device and begin charging.
