SEOUL, Korea, Sept. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- #KICKSTARTER – Bench Soft, a Korean startup that specializes in making mobile accessories, announced that it will launch its wireless iPhone charger and case set XI.i.CON on Kickstarter in October. It consists of a wireless charging battery and a beautifully designed case for the iPhone 6 series with a powerful charging performance.

Bench Soft developed the XI.i.CON series after noticing that there were no mobile accessories on the market that could charge and sync data simultaneously, except for the iPhone's original lightning cable. The product does its job flawlessly via a case and a wireless charging battery that use an X-shaped magnetic connector.

The wireless battery has two charging modes: eco and high-speed charging. In eco mode, users can fully charge the iPhone 2.3 times, as it uses 95% capacity of the battery with 4,300 mAh. In high-speed charging mode, users can fully charge it 1.7 times at 2,000 mAh per hour, same as the original iPhone charger.

The XI.i.CON case for iPhone 6 series has soft texture and provides a great grip. It has a MFI certified micro 5-pin adaptor to make it possible to charge the phone with Android phone chargers. The adaptor is magnetic, making it easy to attach and detach, and users get the choice of which charger or cable to use.

In addition, with a mobile app and Bluetooth connection, users can see the remaining battery power by 1% unit. Users have the options to choose either charging mode or data sync mode. The product also prevents users from misplacing their iPhones. This is achieved via an app, which shows the distance between the phone and the battery.

iPhones are designed with a built-in battery, and the battery cannot be replaced with a new one. Also, iPhone's charging terminal is not compatible with Android's chargers. This can cause more difficulty. Bench Soft has solved this problems with XI.i.CON.

Bench Soft CEO Lee Dong-hun expressed his ambition: "XI.i.CON is the best wireless charger for iPhone 6 series which we have developed. We expect people to love the product. We are preparing to launch the product on Kickstarter in the beginning of October. We aim to achieve our goals through cooperative work with KSEED, a crowdfunding campaign promotion company in Korea."

On Kickstarter last year, Bench Soft raised about $98,000 with its high-speed charging cable, almost five times more than the funding goal of $20,000. It was the first Korean company to successfully raise funds via Kickstarter with a domestic product.

XI.i.CON is scheduled to be launched on Kickstarter on Oct. 15. It is currently receiving sponsor information on the landing page (kseeder.com/campaigns/xlicon).
