Popular ChargeCard Wallet-sized Charger Now Available for Purchase for iPhone 5
A popular Kickstarter project that we showed you last year, the ChargeCard, is now available for the iPhone 5. The ChargeCard is a slim, credit card-shaped and sized iPhone charging contraption that has one end that can stick into the iPhone and one end that can stick into the USB port of a computer. It folds for easy portability.
The new iPhone 5 version of the ChargeCard includes the new Lightning connector that is included with most of Apple’s latest devices, meaning that it could work with an iPod touch 5G or an iPad (or iPad Mini) that has the Lightning connector as well as the iPhone 5.
Notably, the ChargeCard is not only a slim way to charge your device on the go, but it’s also a fully capable sync cable that you can use with iTunes. Because of the unique shape and size of the ChargeCard, you can literally slide it into one of the credit card pockets of your wallet.
The ChargeCard is designed and manufactured in California. To get the Lightning connector version of the ChargeCard, you can head over to the creator’s Web site and snag one for $25.

I find it very skeptical that they don't publish the battery's capacity.

After like 5 ship date changes, i'm starting to think there is no charge card. To be honest I don't really care that much because when I bought it I actually thought it was like others here thought it was... a battery.

I got it yesterday in an envelope that looks like ad junk mail, so be careful out there to not throw in to the garbage can . Anyway it does work as advertised and it really comfortable to carry around either in your valet or just in your pocket. But what i don't like about it, is durability of connectors, both USB and lightning. Lightning when connecting to the phone don't have that clicking feel like other any lightning cables does, so that makes me to be scared that i will ruin my phone. Finally what i don't like about USB side is can be plugged with both sides but works only with one side, so its a chance that user will get it to work with 2nd attempt. Hope it was helpful for you guys.

Just ordered 5 of them for myself and friends. This thing is going be a real help I reckon. I hate it went I'm out and about across a day and my phone drops down to nothing when I need to be contactable or waiting on an important call and you're someplace and they only have a 4 charger or not even. At least better chance of finding a USB. Pity it's not a battery. I got a bit overexcited at first...
