• Universal smartphone charging dock with an interchangeable sliding base

Overview

Project Type: Offshore Manufacturing Setup and New Product Development

With a vision to remove annoying power cables from peoples’ daily lives, we were engaged to develop a simple yet practical solution – a charging dock that caters to any smartphone, with an interchangeable sliding charge base that removes the need to change between cables. Just plug in your smartphone, and the device does the rest!

Challenges

With the wide array of smartphones in the market, the challenge is to ensure cross-platform compatibility. The iOS for example requires associated components (chargers/cables) to be certified with an MFI licence which translates to increased production cost per unit. Without the MFI licence, devices might not charge properly and/or face various connectivity issues.

Solutions

We tapped into the expertise of engineers from different fields and also our knowledge of the tech devices market to streamline the entire development process. Based on our extensive experience in working on portable devices and wearable tech we were able to enable cross-platform compatibility efficiently, saving both time and cost in the process.
