Our Kong Kong fulfillment center has received approval from the air cargo courier to ship the power banks! Here’s a statement about challenges of shipping power banks:
“Shipping the battery alone is quite tricky nowadays and we’ll be limited to a few carriers for shipping batteries alone. Let’s thank Samsung for their exploding batteries for that as courier companies are now very strict with shipping batteries and products with batteries.”
Keep in mind, there is no restrictions for taking the power bank onboard an aircraft. This is definitely acceptable!
We will do a “test” shipment of a few units next week to ensure they arrive at their destination without a problem. If all goes well with the test shipment, expect to receive your SMART Power Bank(s) soon. Additionally, the bags will be finished next week. We expect our HK fulfillment center to consolidate your bags/power banks into the same package in the coming weeks.
Finally, last night at CES Unveiled New York, CES unveiled the Innovation Honorees for CES 2017. We are among the honorees from 28 categories who won this prestigious recognition.
GoPlug exhibited the SMART Power Bank to media/press and wowed participants with this product. In fact, many participants mentioned we had the most impressive piece of technology at the show— and we did!!! You can read the press release here.
We’re nearly at the finish line, I know I keep saying this, but we’ve never been closer than we are now. I will send out another update when we begin shipping.
Thanks again for your continued support!
Josh and the GoPlug Team
