Hello all

I am a final year University student in product design. We specialise in bringing new and exciting products to market. I have work experiance in this sector as well so this is a valid excersise.

I would really appreciate it if anyone on these forums could take the 1 minute it takes to complete this survey I have made to help me collect data. N.B hyperlink opens survey directly no data imput needed and no signing up all anonymous.

Mobile Charging Device Survey

THIS IS NOT A MARKETING OR PR TRICK this is my genuine project and collecting this data helps me getting a better mark as well as creating a better project

Any thoughts on the product idea after you have completed the survey are very much appreciated on this thread thanks for you time.

Interesting idea, but I'm not sure that its a better solution than just carrying a spare battery. (as chargers are not 100% efficient, you'd get more life by connecting the battery to the phone, rather than using the battery to power the charger)

On a totally irrelevant side note, is there something special about 21 to 30 year olds? The age groups seem pretty random.

Hi prking

Your input very much appreciated. In responce yes your point is a valid one about carrying an extra battery. The only thing I can counter that with Is I believe in some phones you do not actually have access to the battery e.g the iphone correct me if I am wrong on that.

A wind up system also means it is usable if so needed for longer than a spare battery could give. (Useful for jungle or third world travels potentially.

As for the age group it is to do with proving to my university lecturers that I have bothered to interact with and care about people who are outside of my age group who I would not be in contact with. Hope that makes sence
