Malaysian-Made Charby ORBIT Brings Apple’s MagSafe Features To Older iPhones And Androids

Charby ORBIT

Charby today announced Charby ORBIT — a magnetic set that brings faster MagSafe wireless charging and MagSafe compatibility to all Qi-enabled smartphones. In just 75 minutes, the Kickstarter campaign had already been fully funded and well on its way to development.

ORBIT is Charby’s take on Apple’s MagSafe: an easy-snap-on wireless charging and accessory ecosystem exclusive to the latest iPhone series. ORBIT lets users add MagSafe magnets to all Qi-enabled phones, including Android phones and older iPhones, in a simple way. Just stick ORBIT’s thin magnetic pad to the phone or casing’s back, and every MagSafe charger, wallet, power bank, and other accessories will snap on via magnets.

Apple’s MagSafe Charger charges slower on older iPhones and Android phones, whereas Charby introduced a universal 15W Qi charger so all smartphones can enjoy fast MagSafe wireless charging. It even charges 24% faster on the latest iPhone 12. By maintaining a stable power output, it minimizes power spikes that cause overheating, which in turn may trigger the iPhone’s safety mechanism that throttles charging speed.

“MagSafe is likely the future of wireless charging. However, its current charging speed can be improved and not everyone owns the latest iPhone. That’s why we created ORBIT,” Ming Jin Cheok, CEO of Charby.

ORBIT also comes with a phone mounting feature to cater to those who are working from home. By attaching an additional pad on the wall, the phone will be able to snap on securely with the help of the strongest magnet on earth, the N52 Neodymium magnet, embedded within the pad. It’s attachable on any surface including the bathroom mirror and car dashboard, which makes multitasking in all places quick and easy.

While there is always a risk with crowdfunding campaigns, Charby had delivered 3 of its crowdfunded products to customers successfully. Charby plans to start delivering ORBIT this September, and each product sold includes a one-year warranty. 

Those who wish to get ORBIT can make use of the Super Early Bird discounts and gifts reserved for early backers on the Kickstarter page here
