RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We adopted a simple ethnography and comparative design research method. The objective is to study how consumers utilize their smart devices and provide the most ideal solution to meet their needs. We studied competitors’ products and evaluated to come out with the most ideal design that meets not just their basic needs of extra power but also a product they will feel proud to carry with them aesthetically to match their lifestyle and fashion wants.

CHALLENGE:
We faced the challenge to compact everything into the smallest and slimmest size possible. And the challenge to source for the most suitable and cost effective battery cells to fit the Final aesthetic quality that we desire. The electroplating on the rim posed a challenge whereby we had to increase the overall size due to plating limitation while maintaining a balanced design composition with the other different materials used.
