DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Maikii Power Banks

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Power Bank

INSPIRATION:
Power Banks and mobile accessories in general are products at the end of their life cycle and typically in their life extension phase. Within this time usually product design looks to other fields to inspire new shapes and functions. In this case we designed the entire series of products with an eye to cosmetics and fashion, abandoning the usual "white" look of electronic appliances. The products have met inserts, recessed Led lights, touchy and warm materials.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This serie of Power Banks are based on the newest technology of Li-Ion batteries, with power between 3000 and 4000 mAh, led light and battery indicator. They come in different colours and finishes: plastic, rubber and eco-leather. With their lighted hole for carrying they are easy to find in a bag.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
As a charger the Power Bank is connected to the mobile accessory with a Usb cable with micro Usb or Lightning Connector. Depending on the chosen electronic and power it can have a Led battery indicator with a button and one or two Usb ports for charging.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project has started in August 2015 in Italy and China and will be on the market in March 2016

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Power Banks and mobile accessories in general are products at the end of their life cycle and typically in their life extension phase. Within this time usually product design looks to other fields to inspire new shapes and functions. In this case we designed the entire series of products with an eye to cosmetics and fashion, abandoning the usual "white" look of electronic appliances. The products have met inserts, recessed Led lights, touchy and warm materials.

CHALLENGE:
Both the promotional and retail market are looking for products with more powerful batteries and small shapes. These Power Banks are the perfect compromise between charging time and number of charges, giving to the user a product that is still easy to carry and that has similar design quality of a smartphone.
