About this deal

Firstly, we have decided to retire the ‘Mu’ brand. Many of you have been with us since we were just a sketch, when we won ‘Design of The Year’, when we crowd sourced the name ‘Mu’ (thank you Robin Freeman), when we met the Queen with the Mu, and then when we shipped our very first Mu Charger (The 5 Watt UK Mu Classic) in 2012. So thank you, it’s been a quite a journey, and you’ve been there with us.

Mu Two update: the Mu brand is done, backers get a Mu One

Of course, charging cases and power banks may not always operate exactly as their specs or marketing would suggest. While a typical power bank or charging case might come with an advertised capacity of 20,000mAh, this doesn't mean that it can recharge your Motorola Edge Plus or Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra exactly four times. In practice, its real (i.e., transferrable) capacity is likely to be around two-thirds of this, meaning that it can recharge a smartphone with a 5,000mAh battery only twice (or two and a half times) before needing a charge itself. After 4 months of no update, the people from Mu are scraping their idea of providing the Mu One as an alternative. Instead we get this: I’ve already written about this problem, so now it’s time to advise on how to choose the best charger for your phone today. Sounds like it should be simple, but it’s definitely not. Mu have done something that should have been done a long time ago – redesigned the humble plug, from the ground up, so that it’s fit for the 21st century. It’s small, portable, multi-function, and built with travel in mind. In short – go buy this thing. You won’t regret it.

It’s difficult to get an exact weight figure for the Mu – since there are 4 parts to it, it depends on what you include. The easiest headline figure to give is the full boxed product weight, which comes in at a mere 141 grams. Obviously if you leave an adapter head at home, or swap their included cable for a lighter one then it will come in at even less. MU has been internationally recognised by several prestigious awarding bodies in industrial design including being the winner of the Brit Insurance Design of the Year,International Design Excellence Award,Alex Moulton Award, Institute of Engineering Designers as well as being a finalist of theWallpaper Design Awards and theJames Dyson Award. PVTis specific technology developed to allow a three-pin electrical plug to a pivot, enabling the live and neutral pins to rotate. By using PVTtechnology, the MU reduces the standard UK plug by over 70% in size, whilst still being operational in the open and folded positions. PVT, a technology that is central to the MU Duo Folding USB Mains Adapterand the MUrange of products, has taken years to develop and is protected by manyglobal patents.

The Mu Two has already far surpassed its funding goal, in fact it was fully funded in just 37 minutes, and the makers are aiming to deliver in June 2020. If you always run out of your room in your suitcase, then the Mu Two international travel charger could be ideal for you. It boasts two USB-C ports and can put out a total of 63W, which means you can use it to fast charge your laptop and your smartphone at the same time.
