 Project objective

Longer battery life is the most demanded feature by smartphone users. Surprisingly, surveys show that 46% of respondents would prefer longer battery life rather than better smartphone cameras or more resistant screens. Current lithium-based batteries fail to keep up with smartphone technological improvements. As a result, batteries do not last long during the day. Moreover, users recharge their smartphones improperly accelerating battery deterioration. Consequently, batteries get drained quickly and users must replace their mobile phone or replace old batteries with poor low-quality new ones. ChargeGuard has developed and patented an intelligent device for optimising charging, increasing battery lifespan and monitoring system and battery temperature and voltage for improved safety. Optium is a smart charge management system that protects and prolongs battery life. The objective of this project is to provide consumers with a 3rd party charger device able to optimise the way batteries get charged and delay the deterioration of batteries by three times. Optium project will satisfy the high unmet demand of consumers for a product that improves smartphone charging procedure, eliminate risk of fire/ battery explosion and increase battery longevity, by providing a 3rd party intelligent charger featured with unique characteristics and fully compatible with any smartphone on the market. We will target different users’ profiles, such as young smartphone owners, business people, large companies and parents worried about fire accidents due to battery overheating. We will market Optium through direct sales, distributors & retailers as well as through exclusive agreements with insurance companies. The potential market is huge. Our projection clearly demonstrates the potential of our solution. By 2024, we foresee to earn more than €14m profit yearly. Our forecast estimates cumulative profits of €20m by 2024 with a return on investment of 730%.
