Previously… Uiee is a small and cute and colourful battery charger for iPhone and other devices that’s currently well worth your attention on IndieGoGo. I told you upfront that I want one myself, but these chargers don’t last forever and I wondered about how long this would stay useful. My own current battery charger has radically reduced its ability to top up my iPhone, for instance.
You can’t expect a brand new product to have years of usage data but I asked the makers and they told me:
Uiee is built with top range circuit board components, Uiee is expected to hold its charging capacity for at least 5 years as we will be using Samsung battery supplies giving a substantial life.
I also asked about the name:
With regards to the name Uiee, when starting the company, the owners wanted to start something that would take away the fear that most people seem to have when it comes to technology. Uiee came about while searching for a word that felt simple, friendly and warm to say. Uiee is more like a companion than a product.
