CAMARILLO, Calif. -- BuQu Tech has sweetened the pot for contributors to its Kickstarter campaign (http://kck.st/H1QrLl) in support of the ChargeSmart™ smart battery case for the iPhone 5/5s.
Starting today, ChargeSmart backers who refer contributors can receive a reward for doing so. BuQu Tech also has added a premium for contributors. For a $30 pledge, supporters will receive a Duracell® Charger Pack that includes a Duracell USB car charger and a Duracell USB wall charger. Each charger has 2 USB ports for easy, simultaneous charging of up to two mobile devices. BuQu Tech’s parent company, Battery-Biz® Inc., is the manufacturer and exclusive licensed partner for these Duracell products.
“The referral program and additional premium are designed to attract additional interest from fans across the Kickstarter community and beyond,” said Jessie Revlin, senior director of marketing at BuQu Tech. “We believe it’s a great way to engage new contributors who have not yet experienced the excitement of contributing to the birth of a new product via Kickstarter.”
The ChargeSmart™ by BuQu Tech Kickstarter campaign runs through November 14. The campaign aims to raise $55,000 and bring to market the first smart battery case for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S in early 2014.
ChargeSmart will more than double the run time of the latest iPhone models while protecting them against everyday hazards like drops, bumps and moisture. Activated by an innovative free app, its charging algorithms will also extend the life of the phone’s internal battery by as much as 50 percent.
