It has now been exactly two weeks since we launched POP, and thanks to you, we have blown by our goal of $50,000 to an incredible $86,000 in pledges.
We have been hard at work getting POP ready for manufacturing. At this stage we have begun creating the “tooling”, which are the molds that POP will be made in. Also we were able to add another 1,000 mAh to the battery, now the biggest portable battery just got bigger, 26,000 mAh!
Based on your feedback we have been able to add a few new features to POP:
1. POP TOP: Based on your feedback and comments we decided to make the top of POP into a storage area. This area will be able fit the AC adapter, as well as have space for USB cables. We think this is an awesome upgrade to the design and functionality of POP and we’re so thankful to have amazingly thoughtful Kickstarter backers like you to suggest such creative ideas.
2. POP for Emergencies: Possibly one of the best reasons to have POP that we never thought of – you did. When the power goes out from natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, etc. our mobile devices become our only lifeline. Use POP as the primary charging station in your house; if the power goes out, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that you can charge your devices for days.
3. POP Station: We had a lot of people tell us how much they loved POP but that they did not need the portable aspect of it. So once again, based on your feedback, we came up with the POP Station. Everything is the same as the traditional POP except we took out the battery. POP Station is ideal for places where an outlet is handy, yet you want a powerful and elegant charger for simultaneously juicing up multiple devices. We’re also offering you the option to change your order to POP Station if you’d prefer. POP Station is available now on Kickstarter for $99.
We made a new video to include the great new features above. Check it out, and as always, your feedback is awesome – keep it coming. We cannot thank you enough.
