New York: You may not need to carry a charger for your smartphone any more; just make sure you carry your keychain with you.

A smartphone charger that is connected to your key chain as a USB connector is about to hit the racks.

Called inCharge, the little USB charger is just an inch long flat cable connecting the USB connector to a micro USB or a lightning pin, media reports said.

When not in use, it can be snapped shut with the help of the embedded magnets at both ends.

The little device can then be attached to a keychain and carried anywhere to juice up one's phone when its battery is about to die.

Expected to reach the markets next month, you can get inCharge for $9 (nearly Rs.550).

The inCharge is available in eight colours to match the shade that suits you best.
