The Puku external charger is a compact while powerful solution to keeping connected to our digital world.
After Hurricane Sandy left thousands of New Yorkers powerless, entrepreneurs Meck Khalfan and Ani Onuorah developed the Puku. Comfortably carried in a computer bag, purse or backpack, the minimally designed Puku charger is compatible with hand-held devices including smartphones, tablets, digital cameras and gaming devices that charge via a USB cable.
brandnewdaydesigns discovered team Puku exhibiting at the Luxury Technology Show in New York City and spoke with President and Co-creator Ani Onuorah about their creatively designed ‘power on the go’ solution…
brandnewdaydesigns : There are a lot of external chargers in the marketplace. What makes the Puku special?
Ani Onuorah: When we started out my business partner Meck Khalfan and I asked ourselves that very question. What is it about our charger we want to be unique? We knew we had to find a good designer. It’s the superior design that makes Puku unique. It’s got curves and an interesting minimally designed indicator that changes color as the capacity drops. The Puku is very cool and trendy. We actually have a lot of fashion enthusiast who immediately gravitate to the Puku as soon as they see it.
…We were the first to introduce colors on this scale. Yes, there are other manufacturers who’ve since copied our colors, but you’re not getting the same brand or feeling of comfort you get when you’re holding a Puku. It’s very different.
bndd: Speaking of different, Puku is a very creative name…
Onuorah: Puku is a breed of antelopes found in the savannah grasslands of Africa. Puku’s are very strong and resilient and have a great talent for survival. Like these creatures, we think our chargers are strong yet beautiful and will help keep your devices up and running. Without a charger, you basically aren’t connected and in this day and age – you need to be connected.
With a capacity of 8000 mAh, a single full charge of the Puku S8 charger will provide three to five full charges for most smart phones and 50-100% charge for most tablets. The external charger comes with a USB cable that connects to micro USB devices. Any USB cable used for charging devices such as smartphones or tablets is compatible.
