Review: MU Foldable USB Charger

Sometimes people solve problems with ideas that are so simple you wonder why no-one ever thought of it before. The MU Foldable USB charger is a classic example of that and when the nice people at MobileFun asked if I’d be interested in a taking a look at their phone chargers and I saw the MU was on the list I jumped at it.

So what’s the problem they are trying to solve?


Specifically plugs for chargers (phone, kindle, mp3 player, etc).

Have you ever tried to carry a charger in your pocket? The pins on the plug stick in everything and the whole thing is is so bulky you end up with lumps in places you probably would rather there weren’t. This means chargers are usually stuffed in bags but if you do a lot of travelling you’ll know bag space comes at a premium so having silly shaped chargers isn’t helpful.

First thing though the packaging!















It’s very stylish packaging and the sort of thing you’d expect from a high end gadget such as a mobile phone or a tablet.

It makes just unboxing the thing an “experience” but if you’re reinventing the plug and has much better pictures than the ones I’ve taken!
