Echo Connect keyring charger for iPhone and Android smartphones available for pre-order

Beau Life has launched a crowdfunding campaign for its pre-ordering phase of its new keyring charger for mobile phone. The Echo Connect allows for the charging or syncing of iPhones, iPads, iPods, and Android devices.

A durable key ring, measuring 5cm (2 inches) tall and featuring a silicone body, the Echo Connect includes a licensed Lightning connector as well as a mini-USB connector for Android devices, and is intended to withstand being stored in a pocket or bag until needed. Though the $5 support level is now sold out, interested buyers can pledge a minimum of $10 to receive a "free" Echo Connect as thanks for the early support.
