About me

As a graphic designer and technology enthusiast I had always had an interest in constantly making the tech we use in our day to day lives not only more efficient but also more intuitive.

What will I use the money for?

I plan to use this money to start a website to represent my product and funding for the necessary resources to make a prototype.
Where the money is going:
- Qi Wireless Power Bank 20,000mAh portable wireless charger
- Custom website ($18 per month)
- Any other programming costs 

How it will work

One of the most common issues we face today is the constantly dwindling battery life that comes with our standard smart phones and other electronics. There are alternatives to the problem, such as carrying a bulky, easily breakable charger around with you and being anchored to a single place. Or maybe portable chargers where you still have to charge it yourself and only have a finite amount of time before the battery is depleted and you are left stranded without power.
With ChargeMe, it is a phone/other electronic charging service for people who need a charge on the go or in a pinch. The idea is simple; ChargeMe Vending Machines carry a rack of portable chargers to use for any electronic devices. There are two ways of obtaining the device. You can either download the app, set up an account and reserve a charger at available locations close to you or go to any machine, enter the time you wish to rent it for and pay by credit card. You pay by the minute (0.10¢ per minute), and choose the time you need. The portable charger also comes with a variety of available dongles and a built in wireless charger depending on your circumstance. After the time is set and the payment goes through you can walk off with the charger and go about your day. It's that simple.
If you tend to use portable chargers frequently and/or need them frequently then there is also an available ChargeMe Plus Subscription that allows subscribers to pay a cheap monthly fee of $30 per account that grants them unlimited time and access to the machines whenever needed. If you have a large family that uses portable chargers frequently you can also set up a customizable plan that deducts $2 off the total of each person that is added to the joint account, and allows up to 5 family members per plan. That's $99 a month for 5 people of unlimited uses, which saves you over $350 a month!† This creates peace of mind knowing that wherever you go, being low on charge won't be a problem.
There are multiple machines across the select areas that ChargeMe would service to, so you would never have to worry about finding the nearest vending machine to return your charger to.
If you do not have a ChargeMe Plus Subscription, and you return the charger past the return period, you will be charged .50 every minute up until a $45 max. 

Setting up an account and returns

Every person who uses the service will have an account with their own personal passcode, which takes about 5 seconds to set up when ordering for the first time, and will be re-entered at the vending machine when it is time to pick up, return or order. You will get an email or text notification confriming that your account is activated during first time setup.
If you were to lose or keep the charger as stated above your credit card will be charged an additional $.50 per minute. Your credit card will not be charged more than $45 which would cover the cost of the device. At that point you will own the charger.
In order to maintain the stock in each vending machine there are parameters set up for renting the device. As an example, if you rent the device at the airport you will need to return it at that airport. Not necessarily at the same machine but at the same location.

In conclusion

With your help, you can make ChargeMe a reality, and can allow for the further growth of this project. The expected time for the website to go live is around late October to early November depending on the success of the funding.
Thank you all so much in advance.
