Ever have your smartphone run out of juice at the worst possible time? For the AMPY founders, it was this common occurrence, coupled with their active urban lifestyles, that led them to create AMPY MOVE, the world’s first wearable battery that transforms energy from your movements into power for your smartphone.
Hello, Smart Power
AMPY MOVE can charge any devices that charge from a USB 2.0 or 3.0 and works as quickly as charging from a wall outlet. Fully charged, its 1800mAh battery can add up to 24 hours of extra battery life to your smartphone. You can also charge AMPY MOVE from a wall outlet with the included micro-USB cable.
Small and lightweight, AMPY MOVE boasts a curvaceous design and sweat-proof exterior that’s ideal for exercise. An accessory kit enables you to strap it on wherever it will get the most up and down motion – which is ideal for charging AMPY MOVE – like on your leg while biking or jogging, or clipped to your waist while walking. AMPY’s founders are already working on scaling the technology down for the next breakthrough: wearable devices that will never have to be plugged in again.
Stay Charged and Fit with AMPY+
AMPY has also created a free smartphone app, AMPY+, which can be used with or without AMPY MOVE. It keeps track of how you use your phone to give you a “battery life forecast.” It also tracks your fitness to tell you how much battery life you can create with AMPY MOVE. Moreover, it infuses the competitive spirit into energy conservation by letting you compete with your friends on clean energy generation. Learn more about AMPY+.
