There are accessories that may not be flashy and as feature-filled but they are nonetheless almost necessary and will make your life easier. If you’re always on the go and have no time to charge your mobile devices on a wall socket, then this IndieGoGo project may be something you can look into. MuConnect gives your smartphones or tablets or any device faster charging when you connect it to your laptop or power bank. Plus, it uses magnets the same way Apple does for their MagSafe so it’s much safer.

Actually, this MuConnect sounds very similar to Znaps, a Kickstarter that got funded last year, but up to now hasn’t shipped yet. So if you’re tired of waiting or if you weren’t able to get that, then you’d want to jump on this one immediately and hope that it meets its goal and that it ships on time (that’s always a risk with crowdfunded campaigns of course).

The magnets used here are for both a faster and safer connection and should be able to support the microUSB that most Android devices have and eventually, the USB Type-C which everyone seems to be saying is the future. You can use MuConnect both for data transfers for when you need to copy something to or from your device. And of course it supports Qualcomm Charge 2.0 that is why it will supposedly charge faster.


It is only at 59% of its goal of $60,000, but the good news is that you still have a month to decide whether to support it or not. The lowest you can go to get yourself a pin and a connector is $12 and they ship worldwide. Their estimated delivery date is July 2016 so if you do support the project, hopefully you’ll actually get yours by then (We’re looking at you Znaps).


This is a crowdfunded project, and as such may not deliver what its creators initially promise. Most crowdfunding sites, like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, have policies about what happens to your money if the project fails to deliver on its goals, but choosing to back a project is inevitably a risk. Android Community’s reporting on crowdfunded projects should in no way be seen as an endorsement, unless specifically stated, and we recommend closely examining the terms and conditions to understand your individual rights as a backer before making a pledge.
