San Francisco, California, March 13, 2015 – Officially launching on Kickstarter and Indiegogo today is the LithiumCard PRO™ by LinearFlux™, a radically different approach on how smartphones and other mobile devices are charged today. The LithiumCard PRO™ is a best-in-class 3 Amp HyperCharging™ portable charger with a 3000mAh ultra-advanced lithium battery, fully integrated and retractable charge/sync cables. An extra auxiliary USB called the HyperPort™, allows HyperCharging™ to be shared with other devices. In addition, the PRO includes the NanoStik™, with nanosuction technology, allows for the PRO to be neatly attached to a smartphone without the use of adhesives.
“The original LithiumCard™ has been revered as the gold standard of the premium portable battery chargers since its global release in August of 2014. With over a quarter million LithiumCards™ sold to date, our development team infused all the positive feedback from our reviewers and customers to create a product evolution of our HyperCharging™ technology,” says Einstein Galang, Vice President of Product Development at LinearFlux™. “Our philosophy and mindset is form always follows function but most importantly further refinement and increasing the speed of the HyperCharging™ circuitry. The LithiumCard PRO™ is a culmination of what made the original great but expands its functionality to address the needs of today’s faster smartphones with larger and brighter screens.”
LinearFlux™’s engineers were faced with a design concept that was coined the “1-2-3 Challenge” –
1 full charge on the iPhone 6
2X the thickness of the original LithiumCard™ but with 3X the capacity
3 Amps of class-leading power. It’s equivalent to the combined speed of 3 Apple iPhone wall chargers. Means less time charging, up to a third of the wait for a full charge!
LithiumCard PRO’s™ NEW class-leading hallmark features include:
NEW! HyperCharging Gen2 Circuitry: Provides up to 3.0 Amps (or 15Watts) of industry leading power. Provides even more power than Apple’s 5-Watt iPhone and 12-Watt iPad wall chargers. Expect a typical 1% increase in battery life per minute for iPhone 6 and 6 PLUS applications. It is far superior in charging performance than the standard Apple iPhone wall charger. For example, when charging an iPhone 6 for 30 minutes, expect up to 30%, or more, increase in battery life.

NEW! HyperPort™: Additional USB type-A port allows consumers to share the HyperCharging™ power with friends.
NEW! Advanced Lithium Technology: 3000mAh battery - enough capacity to fully charge an Apple iPhone 6. Premium lithium chemistry assures ultra-high performance charging and longevity.
NEW! Cable Syncing Compatible: Integrated cables feature computer syncing capabilities with most smartphone and tablet application.
NEW! Triple-Stage Protection Circuitry: Dual stage hardware & software protection ensures a smartphone, or tablet, is safely monitored and optimally HyperCharged™.
Integrated Cables (microUSB or Apple Lightning): Never need to buy, or carry, another cable ever again. Configurations are available in either Apple Lightning, or microUSB, connector (sold separately).
Simultaneous Bypass-Charging: When the LithiumCard’s™ internal battery reserves are drained, the simultaneous bypass charging circuitry allows charging of a device and LithiumCard™ at the same time.
Tri-Color LED Indicator: Nano-refractive lens technology displays, in real-time, the PROs internal battery capacity.
NanoStik™ Pad: Includes the highly acclaimed nanosuction pad that is carried from the original LithiumCard™, to firmly place the PRO onto the smartphone and it is reusable without the use of adhesives.
Globally Ready: The LithiumCard PRO™ meets, or exceeds, global regulatory requirements and is Apple MFi certified.
Anodized and Brushed Finish: Available in premium silver, titanium, and gold finishes.
LinearFlux’s™ goal is to raise $10,000 to finalize production. The Lithiumcard PRO™ is initially exclusive for Kickstarter and Indiegogo contributors to preorder in silver, titanium, and gold colors. Early contributors can expect to receive their Lithiumcard PRO™ by May 2015.
