ZNAPS does not discriminate.  It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from, an iPhone user or an Android user, as long as you’re a mobile device user, ZNAPS is for you!

Everyone needs ZNAPS!

We wanted to make this familiar mundane everyday action just a little quicker and more convenient for everyone. So no matter what you're doing, ZNAPS is right there for you.

ZNAPS supports charging process as well as data synchronization and it’s designed for both Lightning cable (iPhone) and Micro-USB cable (Android).

 Connection is just a znap away! 3 Steps:

Znaps is compatible with any device charged with a micro-usb port or a lightning port.

Not only does it provide reversible plugging for Micro-USB, ZNAPS provides many other awesome features to protect your smartphone.

ZNAPS is a minimalist’s dream come true and perfect for those who love to accessorize. Thanks to our specialized micro-connector, ZNAPS is so small it will fit into any custom phone case so you don’t have to ditch your favorite phone cover.

*some cases with protective flap on the charging port might not be able to close with Znaps in place.

Specification

Thank you for the awesome support, guys! We really couldn’t have made it this far without the pledges of this amazing community.  We really hope you like our new stretch goals! 

Please note: if the USB-C reward tier does become available, the ship date would increase by 2 to 3 months for that reward only (other reward ship dates are not affected).

I am sure some backers missed our team intro down in the comments section. But since our team still hold full time jobs, it is not convenient to publicise everyone as of this moment. But as for myself, (Phiona) I have already reported to my Company I am doing this. As this campaign is ending soon, we are in process of switching to work on ZNAPS full-time. This is so we can continue to deliver ZNAPS and all future accessories.

Risks and challenges

With a product that is this minimal with very intricate tiny parts, the main challenge is quality control. Thus, we have gone through great lengths to choose our manufacturing and supply partners very carefully, to ensure they are well equipped to handle a project of our tiny size. Another challenge is the size of our order. With a larger order, the cost will be minimized. However, the manufacturing time will be lengthened and the tooling will have to be a higher quality as well. That is a balance we will monitor very closely or we will have delays to the shipping schedule. If that were to occur, we will always keep all backers up to date and in the loop, as we understand the importance of communication and we really want to share this entire experience with you all.
