MagC is the world's first wireless laptop charger designed specifically for your MacBook or MacBook Pro. Our goal has been to make technology more natural to use and more human and with the MagC, we are one giant leap closer. Compatible with the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, MagC empowers you to charge your laptop and your phone completely cable free
Compact and robust, MagC clips onto the bottom of your MacBook and into your USB-C port. It is equipped with Qi standard components that enable you to charge your computer using the newest in wireless induction charging technology.
MagC is compatible with the newest iPhone models with wireless charging capabilities. Apple did not release a wireless charging station; new iPhones will require third party chargers to power wirelessly. So why not charge your computer wirelessly with the same station?
Smart Sensing Charger
Technology in the charging pad detects when your computer is present. That way your charger won't waste energy when your computer isn't there.
MagC enables a whole new level of productivity by considering even your most minute actions. It charges using the natural motions you use every time you sit down — placing your computer on your desk. Intuitive, natural, and elegant, MagC's lifestyle integration matches you,
whatever you do. Beyond that, MagC is fully useable with one hand.
Easy Lifestyle Integration
Sleek and subtle, MagC is extremely easy to use — simply place and power. This combination of ease and slimness allows MagC to revolutionize your life without obstructing you at all. Focused on maximizing human efficiency, MagC is a truly ergonomic charging experience.
As with cellular wireless charging devices, MagC enables you to be more mobile. When it's time to move, you simply need to grab and go. That's it! You'll also no longer pull your computer off the desk. No need for MagSafe or a MagSafe USB-C adapter.
Using the MagC grants you the ability to power your computer unobtrusively with one hand, further streamlining your routine and getting you to what you care about sooner.
The MagC comes in two forms: The Conserve and the Surge. The Conserve is capable of maintaining your computer's battery while your computer is in use and the Surge is capable of charging your computer while in use.
As you no doubt noticed in the image above, a clear desk looks better. The MagC Desk, will be made available as a reward tier if we meet our stretch goal. It includes a below desk charging mount so that your desktop stays completely empty as you charge your computer. What could be more natural than charging your computer by placing it on your clear desk?
Always the pioneers, we are constantly seeking new ways to innovate and empower our backers and so it is with great pride that we are introducing the first Kickstarter backed cryptocurrency. Catapulting both you and Kickstarter into the Digital Age.
Following the completion of the campaign, all backers that supported us will receive a quantity of our cryptocurrency, The Surge Token.*
Unlike other hardware Kickstarter projects, MagC Wireless though The Surge Token allows you to buy, sell or trade your product before it is manufactured. So now if demand increases, you can sell your Surge Token at a premium, or if delays occur that make it so that you are no longer interested in the project you can sell all the same and walk away.
The Tokens are build on the Ethereum platform and are fully ERC20 compliant. Meaning your tokens are secure within the crypto-wallet of your choice and are only transferrable if you want to transfer.
Easy to Use
For those new to the cryptocurrency world, The Surge Token is extremely easy to use and can serve only to redeem your MagC if that is all you want! But with ease of use comes a number of opportunities for those seeking them. We'll also be posting guides in our FAQ to make certain everyone can set up their wallet safely and securely.
Here's a chart to help you with the conversions:
The Surge Token is an extremely easy way to claim your MagC as well as enter the cryptocurrency marketplace and as MagC continues to build new products, Surge Tokens will be useable on those products as well!
The MagC Team is based in the Harvard Launch Lab Incubator and is filled with veterans of the consumer electronics world specializing in the improvement of MacBook computing. Our previous major success is TarDisk, through which we've helped hundreds of people worldwide save hundreds of terabytes of memories.
Pierce, CEO of MagC (MagCEO, if you would) - Pierce is the head honcho to end all head honchos and an alumnus of the Bio-engineering world. Pierce’s drive brought him to the Harvard Business School where he established himself while working towards making MacBook Computing the best it can be.
Josue - Man with the plan, Josue keeps the TarDisk machine running like a finely tuned swiss watch. He's often followed by his pride of lions due to his luxurious mane.
Nick - Engineer Extraordinaire. Someday Nick will be the overlord minding the virtual realities we all live in. But for now, as he hones his craft, he has been the lead engineer in developing MagC projects.
Tristan - He’s the guy that thinks about you. Making sure you see the product accurately and in all of it's splendor. He also produces a cappella in his free time.
Murilo - The Jack of Internet Trades. He can do it all, whatever 'it' is. (We are too afraid to ask)
Luiz - Product Success, He prefers to be called Lou, by his closest friends. He is the front line in anticipating and solving any and all problems both before they arise and after.
Risks and challenges
There are always significant challenges in manufacturing and delivering any hardware product at scale. Mass manufacturing isn't the same as prototype development; besides making the MagC work, we have to make sure they are secure and reliable, and that they can be manufactured efficiently at larger volumes. Our team is experienced with manufacturing and has previously launched a product called TarDisk.
Of course, there are still risks associated with producing the MagC. Unexpected changes in component lead times, availability, and cost are examples of factors outside our direct control that could affect our delivery timeline, but we are working hard to mitigate those risks and plan to be transparent throughout the delivery process.
The other risk with this and any other project that involves physical delivery comes with shipping. There are a number of unforeseen circumstances that can cause problems during the actual physical shipping of the MagC. We plan to work with proven companies to help ensure that our cases and other rewards arrive (in perfect condition) at their delivery destination. Since unforeseen circumstances can sometimes impact the shipping world, we will also make sure to have methods/resources in place to overcome any difficulties
