Because you were the first people who believed in us enough to fund our company we wanted to make sure you knew that this Friday (the 11th) we're going to be featured on the TV show Shark Tank on ABC. 

 We could use help getting the word out on social media, so anyone who mentions @PowerPractical and tags #SharkTank on Twitter this week will be entered for a chance to win one of 3 PowerPot t-shirts or a Lithium 4400 battery.

We are also doing a Product giveaway for this event click on this link to enter : http://tinyurl.com/p8w2aon

We will be having a viewing party while we air! Look out for an email to join us via Google Hangout!

Thanks for all your support! We love all our backers!

Hey kickstarters! We wanted to let you know that we have developed a new PowerPot X series and we've launched it on Kickstarter. This amazing 10 Watt generator weighs just a few ounces more than the Powerpot v, just with twice the power! The video gives a nice update on where we are as a company and it all started from your support! We can never thank you enough! Here's the link: The PowerPot X


Update #15

Check out our new project: The Practical Meter

Comment

Hey guys, so many of you may be wondering how much juice your PowerPot produces in specific conditions. We wondered the same thing so we came up with the Practical Meter, a handy little USB meter that fits in ANY USB port, including the PowerPot. 

It's only $19 and comes with awesome charging cables. Please take a look and consider backing our new Kickstarter!
