From Stephen Voller, founder and inventor of Zap&Go:
Like you, I have travelled extensively on business, and my smart phone is an essential tool to do my job. Wherever I have gone in the world I have seen many people sat down by wall plugs trying to charge their phones. This happens frequently at airports, on trains, at conference venues and events whenever people cluster together. Almost every business person I have spoken to has experienced the nightmare of a low-battery when you need the phone the most.
Of course this is now more important than ever, because new security regulations at airports mean that you must power-up your device.
Wherever I have gone in the world I have seen many people sat down by wall plugs trying to charge their phones.
While people have evolved strategies to keep their phone charged, this is often stressful and time consuming. Powerbanks and external batteries are lithium-based like your phone and takes at least as long to charge which renders them useless if you don’t plan ahead.
So in 2013 I founded Zapgocharger Ltd, to build a new type of charger specifically for the business traveler. We have licensed intellectual property (IP) from Oxford University in the UK, and have also developed unique IP of our own.

Existing charger products charge slowly
The reason existing charger products don’t alleviate the problem, is because most use the same lithium battery based batteries as your phone and also recharge slowly.
I bought a whole bunch of these battery based chargers over the years, which work on the idea of providing a bigger battery.
These bigger batteries are sometimes built into a case design, which can make the phone heavy and bulky, or in an external charger.
I found the external chargers more convenient, but I had to remember to keep them charged, and if I didn’t, they actually lengthened the wait time by the plug.
My iPhone 5s takes 2.4 hours to recharge. If I used an external charger with a bigger battery (say 3,000mAh) this took a further 3 hours to recharge.
