There are those who have to carry around a compact mirror. The problem with these is that they have no other use. Sanho’s HYPER brand has fixed that with a Kickstarter project called the Pearl. The Pearl has normal and 3x close-up mirrors like a regular compact, but it can also charge the battery in your device. It has a 3000mAh battery which is good for a full charge with most smartphones. It also has a MicroUSB slot for charging itself. It also has an LED lighting ring to better see what you’re doing.
The HYPER Pearl will retail for $39.99 and comes in gold, silver, and red. Those who want it early can pre-order it on Kickstarter for as low as $25 on Kickstarter starting on November 12th. You can find the Kickstarter campaign here:
HYPER Launches Pearl™ Kickstarter Project
World’s First Compact Mirror with Built-in USB Battery Pack. For iPhone, iPad, Android, USB Devices and All Your Beauty Needs.
Monday, November 10, 2014 FREMONT, CALIFORNIA: Sanho Corporation – manufacturer of the HYPER line of mobile accessories – announces the launch of its Kickstarter campaign for Pearl. Pearl is a stylish compact mirror with an integrated battery pack that can charge iPhone, iPad, Android and any USB powered devices. The Pearl’s slim and lightweight design makes it extremely portable, fun to use, and the perfect accessory for any occasion. With its 3000mAh capacity, the Pearl can provide ample amount of power to a smartphone as well as many other USB powered devices such as a tablet, speaker, or even a motorized fan.
HYPER is seeking $30,000 via Kickstarter to fund the production of Pearl. Funding begins November 10th, 2014 at 8am PST/11am EST and ends on December 2, 2014. Upon successful funding, HYPER will ship the Pearl in December 2014 to all Early Bird backers with guaranteed Christmas Eve or earlier delivery (USA only). This is HYPER’s 3rd Kickstarter project. Both previous projects were successfully funded. These include the very popular iStick project that ended with over $1.1 million in funding as well as the CloudFTP that was the 3rd highest funded Kickstarter Technology project when it ended.
Daniel Chin, Founder and CEO of HYPER by Sanho Corporation says “With the proliferation of power hungry smartphones and tablets, USB battery packs are becoming commonplace. However the last thing we want is to carry yet another gadget to power our gadgets. Hence we decided to reimagine the battery pack by combining it with a common fashion accessory, the compact mirror. The result is a single product that is twice as useful and hopefully makes previously utilitarian battery packs more accessible and appealing to the female consumer. Kickstarter is the perfect platform to gauge public response to this new product concept. If response to Pearl is good, we will definitely look at integrating USB battery packs with other existing useful accessories.”
