January 28, 2019 – German start-up Vonmählen presents its tech accessory. High Five, the 5-in-1 charging cable, eliminates the need to carry several charging cables for different smartphones and end devices. Vonmählen has just launched a crowdfunding campaign in order to introduce the charging cable to an international audience. Vonmählen's campaign can be found on Indiegogo and Kickstarter.
High Five can charge all common mobile devices and is specifically designed to attach to any key ring. The in-house design team at Vonmählen was able to engineer High Five to provide five different connection options in one cable, including a 2in1 connector and a hybrid circuit board.
The 30-day campaign aims to make the tech accessory well-known to all mobile device users worldwide and to ensure the final stages of production, distribution and logistics around the world. Vonmählen wants to raise €15,000 on each platform.
Vonmählen's product consists of a USB-A connector and a cable with the connections for USB-C, Micro-USB and Lightning. When both ends of the cable are plugged into the USB-A connector, a loop is formed that allows the tech accessory to be attached quickly and easily to any key ring. A strong N-Class magnet securely holds all components together at all times.
High Five is only 15 grams and has the measurements of 70 mm in length, 12 mm wide and 10 mm deep. When the cable is extended it is 45 mm long. High Five has a maximum charging speed of 2.4A. The cable comes in black, orange, red, pink, blue and green. The body of the charging cable is made of metal, which is durable and resistant to daily wear and tear.
The design was developed in collaboration with Emami Design under the direction of Arman Emami.
