Worlds 1st Phone to Phone smart charger (Micro USB) technology that will perhaps outdate Power Banks
We somehow wanted to bring back his phone alive so that we could continue the trek. But we weren't that lucky because all our power banks were at home and there was no charging point's across miles , All we were left was a bunch of friends & their phones . Finally, We had to cancel the trek and return back in a hurry.
We realized that there is a critical need to make emergency charging simple . Our phone can run out dead any time as we usually don't keep a track on the battery stats . Once our phone is switched off , Our contacts / messages / notes , everything will be shut down. Imagine a person goes for an interview in some new city but once he reaches, his phone dies out of charge . The contact details of the interviewer were on his phone . Now where should he go ? How would he find the place? Whom he shall scream for help? the time is running really fast with pressure struck tightly in his mind !
We had seen lots of examples like this and we really wanted to bring out some solution. We held up our self with a commitment to make emergency charging even simpler. We worked ,worked and worked . Finally were successful in coming up with a fully working prototype of a gadget that allows phone to phone charge sharing. We thus invented HDkey - The worlds first phone to Phone Charger "

Economic Times , Jan 1st 2015 ( New Years Day )
After experiencing frustration with the battery life of our smartphones, we thought power banks can be a handy tool . Since power banks are quite bulky to fit in our pockets and its very often that users forget to charge them , We thought there should be a better alternative .
The inspiration comes from a day when me and my friends were on a trekking , and one of my friend's phone was switched off just before he had to attend an urgent business call . There was no power sources , No power banks around us , All we had was just a bunch of friends with mobile phones, Everyone helpless !
We decided to do something: create the world's most compact device which can allow hassle free phone to phone charging , high speed data transfer and automation using NFC , to be always carried along.
HDKey is a very simple product, yet so useful that we believe everybody should own one. That's why one of our main goals was to keep it affordable, lightweight and fashionable. Its a Awesome new thing which is a must for everyone.

Q1 : If in case , I am charging my phone using my friends phone, Will my friends battery drain out quickly ? Is HDkey 100% efficient.

The figures are negligible but also depends on lots of other factors like - the process running on your phone , your phones hardware specification , your battery health and so on .
Q2 : Do you think asking friends phone to charge yours is a good idea? .
