The 'MagBolt' magnetic connector helps to eliminate the need for mechanical connections and help to potentially extend the lifecycle of a smartphone's port.
The charging port on iPhones and Androids are used day in and day out for charging and data transfer purposes, which in turn can render them broken after extended periods of use. Especially with the iPhone 7, which has no headphone jack and instead relies on the Lightning port for physical headphone connectivity, the port will be placed under additional usage. This makes the 'MagBolt' magnetic connector a great way to eliminate the wear and tear that can occur with traditional smartphone connections.
The 'MagBolt' is currently available for preorder on Kickstarter and is capable of being used with either the iPhone or Android devices.
