Has your phone ever run out of battery? Yes? Well, ours too.

Over the past decade, electronic devices have become a part of our daily lives. Varying from a laptop, controller, or simply a smartphone, these devices verified themselves to be beneficial. However, without power, these gadgets are merely blocks that have no use or purpose.

This is where Kinecto comes in. Kinecto takes away the conscious act of charging by making the process completely sustainable and wireless. Kinecto’s aim is to alleviate the anxiety and frustration that comes along with low battery and eventual loss of power.

Kinecto is a wireless charger that revolutionizes charging through motion. You carry this device around with you, and energy from your daily movements will be stored to charge any other device you want. Never carry a wire, power bank, or another battery with you. Kinecto will replace all of these. Unlike conventional modes of charging, Kinecto stores up energy generated by its owner and uses it to charge electronic devices wirelessly. With Kinecto, become your own power source and never run out of battery again!

KINESUSTAIN KINECWIRE KINECPORT

Kinecto’s vision is to be a global leader in renewable, portable energy devices.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much movement do I need to charge the device?

To charge your phone fully from 0% to 100%, you will need 5,000 steps, or 30 mins of cycling, swimming, or running.

How big is the device? What is the size?

The device will be the same size as a regular power bank. It will be like carrying another power wallet in your pocket.

Does it have any harmful effects?

No, the technology we are using has been tested and certified by many companies.

Will it charge when I am sleeping?

Yes, if you are sleep walking.

What if I do not move a lot, how will it charge?

Research shows that an average person walks 5,000 steps in a day. Specifically, in Qatar, the average is around 4,500 steps. We suggest you to have a look at your step counter and you will realize that in fact you do move enough to charge your device once and if you move more, then even better.
