      hkg,

      thank you for your support, I think the timing of the campaign was not the best, there was another project running at the same time for a passive USB adapter, and also the holidays are very close and most people are shopping for gift and supporting project that would deliver before the end of the year.

      I will regroup with my team after the end of the year and figure out if we can shave some items of the budget, reduce and refocus the campaign and give it a second try next year.

      wow.... sad to see this not come through! Would have loved a smaller edition...

      How come the target was missed by so much? No marketing?

      Mike,

      Like on any crowdfunding campaign,you have to trust the developer, on our previous campaign we show (and marked as so) a prototype, due to manufacturing issues and design changes that were propose during the campaign itself the size changed. We never promised to deliver a specific size.

      This time around, LockedUSB Adapter is more mature, we went ahead and design a smaller PCB prototype and also went head and had the manufacture design the molding ahead of the campaign. This time we know exactly the size we will be delivering, what you see on the picture is an actual engineering drawing from where the mold will be manufacture.

      I think the timing of the project is the main cause of the low support, most people are shopping around for holidays Gift and supporting project that would be deliver in time for the holidays. There is also another project running at the same time that had been funding very well, which is for a passive adapter that does not support fast charging on all smart devices.

      Only 133 backers so far? Looks like a lot of people were quite disappointed with the huge adapter you shipped at the end of the last campaign after showing pictures of something that looked more like your MK2 adapter. How do we know that you won't change the design again and ship another huge clunky looking device?

      Philip, MK2 use a newer generation controller that support a few of the newer protocol that you may find in devices release after our original LockedUSB Adapter. There is also a resettable fuse present on MK2. Besides that they are identical (besides the size).

      Are there any feature differences between the Mk2 and the original LockedUSB, excluding the obvious size difference.

      Can more than one LockedUSB Mk2 be pledged for by increasing the amount of the pledge? e.g. earlybird pledge?
