If you have always found the MacBook’s MagSafe power connector to be very useful and easy to use, you’ve probably thought of having such a feature on your smartphone, as well. Luckily, you are not the only one with this idea, as some ingenious folks have come up with a connector that mimics the functionality of the MagSafe connector.
Znaps is a magnetic adapter for your mobile devices that has already gone super popular on Kickstarter – it has received more than $800,000 CAD, much more than the initial $120,000 goal, and there are still 24 days left to go. The gadget pops on and off with magnetic ease and it seems that this particular feature is what more than 23,000 consumers have been looking for.
Znaps comes with a micro-USB connector, which means it can will work with iPhones, Android handsets and other Micro-USB-powered devices. Znaps is actually made from two parts: a magnetic adapter for your existing sync/charge cable and a tiny plug for your Micro-USB or Lightning port. For just $9 USD, you will get one Znaps Connector and one Znaps Adapter, with your choice of lightning or micro-USB. The estimated delivery is set for November 2015 and the gadget sips anywhere in the world for an additional $3.
This small device is particularly useful in a situation when you only have one hand free. Znaps is yank-safe, snag-free and blocks water as it’s reinforced with a silicone ring. Having a compact size, it fits any case; it also has a charging indicator and is reversible, as well.
