Lightning Armor is a Simple Two Step Solution for Lightning Cables

Smart Crowdfunding is slated to carry out strategic marketing initiatives for the 'Lightning Armor' project on Indiegogo. The team behind this campaign are crowdfunding to bring a two-step protective solution for lightning cables to market.

​Telewide, a Korea based professional technology design company, has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo in order to introduce their newest creation to the public. This campaign has a funding goal of $3,900, which needs to be raised in order to bring Telewide’s “Lightning Armor” to market. This creation was inspired by the short life of lightning cables, and the extreme expense of always needing to replace them with a new cable. The team states, “Because of the extensive usage of the charging cable after 5 to 9 months since purchase you notice that it starts to tear open at the base of the connector and unless you take some protection measures, you will simply have to throw it away and get a new one.” That led them to come up with an extremely low-cost solution.

The usual methods for protecting or repairing a lightning cable involve tape, springs, or hard connectors. However, all of these are just temporary fixes and do nothing to actually save the cable. Lightning Armor is a more permanent fix to the problem. It is a small 2-step solution to protect lightning cables before they begin breaking or becoming frayed. It consists of an inner flexible silicon sleeve in order extend durability, and an outer hard plastic clip that snaps on to hold the sleeve in place. Prevention of damage by using this device can save a person a lot of money due to the fact that they will not have to replace a broken or dangerously frayed cable. Lightning Armor is available in five colors: gray, blue, green, yellow, and red.

"Protect your charging cable with our Lightning Armor. A truly Smart & colorful fashion statement!"
