One of the inconveniences of modern life is having to carry around the mess of chargers and cables that power all our different devices. MAGFAST is a crowdfunded startup that was launched in 2017 to provide a solution to this problem. The company’s very passionate CEO is Seymour Segnit, who co-founded MAGFAST with his wife, Amy. Segnit was already familiar with this space because he had previous experience as CEO of a company making chargers. He decided it was time to design a better charger because of his own bad experiences, and MAGFAST was born. The company’s goal is to innovate the charging process with a reliable wireless charger that connects to devices magnetically.
When the company launched its crowdfunding campaign, it was able to achieve its $300,000 goal within 15 minutes. This remarkable performance was a reflection of just how much interest there was for a better charging solution. MAGFAST went on to create a product that directly addressed the shortcomings of other chargers on the market. The system, called MAGFAST Family, includes several power banks that function either individually or together to quick-charge a wide variety of devices. The key to MAGFAST’S ability to deliver a genuinely wireless charge is its use of powerful magnets. Each power bank also comes with a built-in cable that is replaceable and self-stored, ensuring a sleek design with no mess of wires. While the system does include a special charger for the Apple Watch, MAGFAST intends to be universal, and its main chargers have built-in compatibility with most brands. Another product in the system, the Life Charger Extreme, is a portable charger so powerful that it can even jumpstart a car.
MAGFAST’s slogan “changing charging for good” refers to more than just the company’s innovation of the charging experience. The company has committed to planting a tree every time they sell one of their products.
