CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 27, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- GOkey, the multi-purpose electronic keychain accessory, has reached the midpoint of its campaign on the popular crowdfunding platform Indiegogo and has currently raised over 1,000% of its $40,000 funding goal. Now, in order to reward backers for their support, they have instituted a series of campaign funding stretch goals.

Once GOkey's crowdfunding campaign reaches its new stretch goals, all backers will receive an app that tracks the last GPS location of their GOkey at no extra cost and every GOkey's USB will be upgraded to USB 3.0, making transfer speeds five times faster. Initially launching its campaign in order to secure manufacturing and shipping costs, GOkey surpassed its funding goal in less than one week and has continued to see tremendous support from its backers.

The primary function of GOkey is to act as a portable battery charger for mobile devices, providing up to two hours of backup charge for most mobile devices. Users can choose either a Lightning cable to charge the iPhone 5/5C/5S or a Micro-USB cable to charge Android or Windows devices. Small and discreet enough to fit on a keychain, GOkey was created to provide users with an emergency mobile battery charger that isn't an inconvenience to carry around while on the go.

"We're becoming more dependent on technology each and every day," says Doros Kyriakioulis, founder of GOkey. "Because of that dependence, we're completely stuck when the batteries go out. We created GOkey to help ensure that we never get lost in the dark again. GOkey's size and functionality make it completely unlike any of its competitors."

Doubling as a flash drive, GOkey is also capable of storing music, pictures, movies, and other documents. Supporters will be given the option to choose between a memory size of 8,16, or 32 GB. To ensure that files are completely protected, GOkey also comes enabled with 128-bit password encryption.

GOkey possesses other functions in addition to its battery and memory storage functions. Whether users have lost either their mobile phone or their keys, GOkey is equipped to help. Utilizing Bluetooth technology, GOkey enables users to search for either their missing keys or missing phone. Pressing the middle button on the GOkey will cause a user's phone to ring, assisting those who have misplaced their phone. In the opposite scenario, the GOkey mobile app will display the signal strength of the GOkey device itself, allowing users to hone in on its exact location when they can't find their keys.

"Our main goal was to create a simple, yet beautiful device that addresses the problems we face on a daily basis," says Doros Kyriakoulis, founder of the GOkey. "GOKey is simple, small and completely functional. It gives you juice when you need it, it syncs your phone, and it helps find missing keys or phones."

GOkey is still currently available for pre-order on Indiegogo. Depending on the memory size customers choose, GOkey ranges from $49 to $69 on the crowdfunding platform and users even have the chance to refer friends for discounts on GOkey.
