Bump is the next truly democratic universal product for the digital age. Bump is the take-everywhere, can't-live-without accessory that provides a stylish solution to one of life's most common headaches. Consisting of a wall plug, power bank, premium cable, and holder, bump provides an energy boost (up to 1.5x extra battery) to your mobile device while the user is on the go, saving them time from searching for an outlet to charge their device.

The components of bump contribute to its overall amazing functionality. The cable holder is made of a high-quality silicone rubber that is soft and flexible, folds and stores easily, fits in a pocket, and keeps the premium cable in place. The premium cable boasts pebble-shaped grips, durable construction to prevent splitting, and a flat design to prevent tangling. The wall plug/ power bank possesses folding prongs, compatibility with all USB devices, and a stylish charge status indicator.

Intended to avoid the mess and stress of the everyday, bump declutters the user’s life and keeps them on the move. Studies say that on average a mobile device user spends 3.5 days of their life spent untangling cords. Bump bypasses that with its tangle-preventive, smooth functionality. Its pebble-like shape is pleasing to the eye and a delight to hold, bringing an unexpected optimism to a common part of contemporary life.
