Have a question?
@Joe we've just returned from meeting with our suppliers in Shenzhen, China. We'll have a update to everyone this Tuesday.
So haven't heard anything in awhile. Any updates, or backer kits?
Thanks for your question Steve.
Morphcooker warrants it's product to be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of one year from shipping.
What length of warranty will this come with and what will it cover?
@Jeff. Thank you for your support!
@Philip. Thanks for your comment and question.
1) The silicone used on Morphcooker can handle +350 C, far above Morphcooker's maximum cooking temperature.
2) The Morphcooker Family draws 9 to 10amps.
congratulations for your successful backing!!Jeff
"Morphcooker power module" can connect directly to 12v car battery. How many watt maximum does Morphcooker Family draws ?
From Internet ...
" Silicone and Silicone Polyester coatings are organic resins applied almost exclusively to bakeware, which doesn’t need to withstand the high cooking temperatures that stove-top cookware does. Silicone nonstick pans are designed to allow baked products with a high sugar content to release easily from the pan, and they are also dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. Because silicone is an inexpensive product, and silicone-coated bakeware can’t withstand a high heat, these types of pans are generally more cost effective. "
@Rouslan. The coating is silicone.
@Jared. We can't advise using that spec of Solar Panel with Morphcooker, however we looking into a module that will enable the use of other Solar Panels.
Forgot to ask. What is the non-stick surface coating? Teflon or Ceramic?
How about an 18V40W solar panel?
@Rouslan. Yes the Morphcooker Solar Panel will be able to charge regular electronics.
Whether other Solar Panels can charge Morphcooker depends on the power output of these Solar Panels. Happy to calculate this for you if you message me the details of your Solar Panel.
@Gardener given our patent is pending you won't be able to find it on the USPTO website. For more details here's a link to our Application eReciept from the USPTO https://drive.google.com/open…
@Woody i'm unsure why your brother is seeing a different price. We have not altered our reward pricing.
@James we respond to comments as quickly as we can. It is Sunday here in New Zealand and we are spending time with our families. Thanks for your understanding.
@Gardener thanks for your questions.
Our patent number is (USA patent office)
EFS ID: 30963259
Application Number: 62586622
Morphcooker is a New Zealand registered company.
Company number: 6555753
Office address: level 1, 7 Dixon St, at Creative Hq, Wellington Central, New Zealand
We are using lithium ion batteries with 16 cells, where each is 2600 mAH at 3.7 volts, with 2 parallel groups of 8 in series, for a total of 29.6 volts at 5200 mAH. These are made by a reputable manufacture, from a source that gives us extremely good supply and price—not available to the general public. This is part of our intellectual property advantage.
The last few hours the creators isnt here and/or answering our questions . Everyone should back out. I'm a super backer and been in scam campaigns" have patent" creator wont take picture last few hrs creator would be here to answer questions cause he/she/them would be excited but they won't cause it's Saturday?
I'd be ticked pink that I had this idea and its original would be around all the time to answer questions
So, the questions that I still have are:
* Is there a company? What's the address?
* What's kind of battery is it? Can you link to a supplier website?
* Is it really patented? What's the patent number?
Sweet baby jesus Robo! It looks like you had three failed campaigns here and you are still determined to be a part of kick starter somehow. How many campaigns have you trolled since your failures in 2016? You have the Superbacker designation but perhaps it should be Supertroll. See his trolling comments @ https://www.kickstarter.com/profile/687112352/comments
I'm bailing out thanks Robo
last words from me, do no longer have the happiness to do claims carefully !
While posted in the comments 'it should not be assumed that we claim it to be a replacement for gas/petrol stoves. Nowhere is that stated, and should not be implied.', this campaign is still being marketed as 'The next generation of camp stoves'. For this deceptive marketing alone, Kickstarer must suspend this campaign.
The power of the morphcooker is between 150 Watt and 300 Watt. Because of not answering this question, Kickstarter must suspend this campaign - lack of transparency.
So power is only 1/10 to 1/7 of 'todays generation camp stoves' yielding cooking times 7 to 10 times longer.
The energy capacity of the 750 g battery is said to be 154 Wh. A 'todays generation gas stove' weights less then 300g, and 450g propane gas has an energy capacity of nearly 6000 Wh ! Not counting the 400g of the Morphcooker Family.
Comparing the 'Power Up Solo EARLY BIRD - US $130' to the 'Morphcooker Solo EARLY BIRD - US $96' gives the cost of $34 for a 154 Wh Li-Ion battery - incredible :-( Try find a 300 Wh li-ion battery for $130 on Ebay/Amazon/Aliexpress !
Comparing 'Off Grid: Solo EARLY BIRD - US $150' to 'Morphcooker Solo EARLY BIRD - US $96' yields the cost of $54 for a 35 Watt semi-flexible outdoor solar panel. Nothing like that on AliExpress. And here it is said to be a 44 Volts 'Our suppliers have developed a custom solar panel'. I am building ultra light solar panels myself for more than 10 years now. To get 44 Volts you would normally have to cut big cells into 88 fragments. Or use a $20+ step up solar charger not currently available on the market.
A custom made solar panel that is only an add-on and only 31 orders so far :-(
They claim to have patents but refuse to show proof - lack of transparency
Lawrence Brass is said to be the inventor but Internet search gives no results
No trademarks registered.
No company address, no Inc. no Ltd. - nothing.
Total unrealistic time line.
While even the big fails/frauds like Zano, Kraftwerk, Tiko3d demostraed a final prototype, here we only got a 'proof of conecpt'.
No videos showing the most important feature, the collapsible frying pan.
All videos with the stove on the ground/table so an electric heater could be underneath.
I can not say that this campaign is a fraud. What i can say is that according to their own rules, Kickstarter must suspend this campaign. But i will not tell them. If they would know and not suspend this campaign, backers could file a class action against Kickstarter. But with only 200 backers from all over the world, this would not happen anyway.
My advice to the creators: take care to fulfill the claims of the 10 New Zealand backers, just like Tiko3D shipped to their Canadian backers first before going bankrupt. The rest will not go against you.
While the poor get poorer, the rich get even more rich. Whoever invests in this campaign not like playing a lottery game deserves to be ripped off.
As you can read below, i indeed like the concept. But what is offered here is completely unrealistic. And as creators failed to comply to transparency, this campaign must be seen as fraudulent.
I have added for the solo plus solar panel but my brother has it cheaper on his phone through this app for $115. Is there any reason why it’s different?
@Alex. How much would I have to add if I want to get your solar panel as well? Also, saying that the output from solar panel is 44v, as it was custom made for the batteries, will this panel be any good for charging regular electronics, like all current portable solar panels do? And lastly, will regular solar panel chargers like Anker, ravpower or similar ones, be able to charge your battery? Thank you.
@Markus yes, we can add an additional power pack to your pledge. Just add NZ $104 to your pledge. This covers NZ $69 for the power pack and NZ $35 for additional shipping to Austria.
Is there a way to add an additional power pack to my pledge?
@jeffrey you can find info & a picture of the battery/controller in the Features section.
Our suppliers have developed a custom solar panel for the Morphcooker with a output of 35 watts / 44 volts.
@Rouslan we've added this information to the Tech Specs section on the campaign page
Still don't see info/pics on the controller and info on the solar panels like what voltage and amps they charge the battery at it's getting harder to believe this will ship in 3 months even if it's simple cooking device
Hi. What temperature is on lo, med, hi settings? Is LO practical at all for cooking? If only HI is good for cooking meat , then 25 minutes on a single battery doesn't make any sense. 2 batteries with a skillet weights about 2kg and max what you can do is use it for a day of 2-3 times cooking..
400g / 14oz
What's the weight of a Morphcooker Family (without battery) ?
Hi Jeff, great to hear you appreciate the video! Thanks for your support
Hi Philip, thanks for your question.
Yes, the Deluxe Family is the only current reward with which you can create the oven and grill press.
Is "Deluxe Family" rewards the only way to achieve Oven & Press Grill functions ?
thank you for your steak and eggs cooking video - I will be upgrading my pledge!
Lithium ion, or lithium polymer?
Hi Joe, Morphcooker uses Lithium battery cells.
What kind of battery cell is used?
Hi Richard, there is now a reward available with both an extra battery and solar panel.
Hi Richard, i'll get back to you Monday once we've reviewed our rewards.
Hi Jeffrey, thanks for your questions and best wishes.
I'll add an image of the controller/battery and information about the solar panel to our campaign page on Monday.
What if we want an extra battery along with the solar panel. How do we do that.
we still need to figure out the technical specs ourselves: If that in the video were 200 ml of water heated from 25°C to 100°C in 420 seconds, the (Family) Morphcooker would have the power of 4200 x 75 x 0.2 / 420 = 150 Watt.
What kind of solar panels will this come with(what is the charging volts and amps for the battery) will my 28watt usb 5v solar panel work to charge the batteries? btw where is the controller and what does it look like? Thanks and best wishes on a sucessful launch
Thank you so much!!! Please no more kicking these people they clearly have a working system..... yes it's needs a case and other things but it works. Please give them a brake.
To all those interested, here's a video of Morphcooker boiling water https://youtu.be/Br3YArWyoQ0
