Hello Backers—

By now, all of you should have your GoPlug gear (with the exception of the Core Backpack). If you have not, email us at support@goplugbags.com and we’ll fix the problem.

There’s been a few questions about the Cable Kit, the Android App, and the Core Backpack— That’s explained below. However, First check out the cool things happening since introducing GoPlug to the world.

2017 CES INNOVATION AWARD WINNER —

 

GREENTOWN LABS— GoPlug has been accepted into the largest and most innovative CleanTech incubator in the United States, Greentown Labs. GoPlug already has the most innovative power bank in the world, however, this partnership provides us with continued advancements in the world of energy as well as access to major companies like GE, Engie, and Total Energy. 

 

With collaborations with Greentown Labs, we will remain on the forefront of providing the most advanced powering solutions.

Running a campaign proved to be challenging, and much more expensive than we expected— we did not give up, and I thank you for your continued belief our team. You helped to create the World’s First Smart Power bank— a CES Innovation Award winning Product! Nothing like it exists, so THANK YOU! Admittedly, we made a few mistake and learned many valuable lessons along the way (i.e. Hire great customer support professionals). With your feedback (and patience) we’ve implemented these changes.

Next week you will receive another update from our newly recruited and devoted support manager. He’s a pro with years of experience. At the expense of GoPlug, he’s implementing new protocols that ensure your voice is heard. Read more in next weeks post.

Core Backpack Update: we've been approached by a number of bag companies wanting our technology. We're currently exploring partnership ideas with two companies, both are well-known companies (one specifically for photographers/videographers) who would like to partner with us on the CORE backpack. These negotiations take time; however, we're close to finalizing a deal and will proceed with details soon. Before shipping any CORE bag, we want to lock in this partnership.

The android app is on hold pending the success of the Carry-On Case. Unexpected costs to produce the power banks, freight, customs, and other unexpected operational costs required us to put this on hold. We know this is inconvenient and apologies for the continued delay.

The cable kit was swapped for the barrel port adapters and was mentioned in an early update or comment. Because this was not widely understood (perhaps by our bad communication), we are working with a third-party vendor which will allow us to fulfill this portion of the campaign (pending a successful Carry-on campaign).

Finally, please direct all questions/comments/inquiries to support@goplugbags.com.

We thank you for your support and look forward to the next chapter together.

Sincerely,

Josh and the GoPlug Team

      Those of us that backed the carry-on will still receive it after the campaign?

      Ah, the video about the docking station was so helpful. I totally get why it's there now, and it's awesome! Thank you!
