About this project

MICRO - The World's Smallest Universal Travel Adapter with Surge Protection - Compatible in over 150 countries on all 7 continents. 

Patent Pending

With Micro, you get the functionality of a universal travel adapter built into a cool design that matches the awesomeness of the gadgets you travel with. An adapter that’s simple, yet versatile and that feels extremely familiar, as if you’ve already used it and loved it all your life.

Compacting and combining all the functionality of a big, heavy, bulky universal travel adapter into a cool gadget that's smaller than a single socket travel adapter, Micro's versatility is second to none.
Compacting and combining all the functionality of a big, heavy, bulky universal travel adapter into a cool gadget that's smaller than a single socket travel adapter, Micro's versatility is second to none.

MICRO is perfect for all your travel essentials.

Micro makes your travel experience easier. Much sleeker and a lot cooler-looking, Micro is hands-down the world’s smallest and the best designed travel adapter you'll ever own.

“Different” and “new” is relatively easy. Doing something that’s genuinely better is very hard! - Sir Jony Ive - Senior VP Design - Apple  

Whether you are a business person with a small travel bag or a backpacker looking to minimize your travel load, Micro helps you stay light and ticks all the essential boxes with its innovative design and complete functionality.

The integrated casing covers any 3rd pin safely so you don’t have to worry about exposed plug pins ever again!

 

 

The top and bottom release levers have 2 positions: locked and unlocked.To release a set of pins, slide the lever to the left (unlocked position).

To lock a set of pins in place (either in open or stored position), slide the release levers to the right.

The four faces of MICRO are everything you need in almost every country in the world! 

The Americas and over 54 other countries - When you visit the United States, use the top lever to release the US pins, then lock them into position.

Australia and over 29 other countries - If you find yourself Down Under, use the top lever to release the US pins and twist them into position to match the Aussie socket type.

Europe and over 125 other countries - If you're traveling across Europe, use the bottom lever to release the European pins, then lock them into position.

UK and over 47 other countries - The additional modular pin, seamlessly built into the Micro design, allows you to plug into UK sockets without having to use knives, pens or other dangerous options. Simply remove the modular pin from its location, slide it into the designated slot and press the side grip to lock it into position. Use the bottom lever to release the European pins, lock them into position, and you’re ready to plug your devices in the UK in seconds.

And when you're done, simply push to store and lock.

 

 

A power surge is a sudden spike in your home's or hotel's electrical current. The spike lasts less than a thousandth of a second, but it can be the end of your valuable devices. 

With Micro, you no longer have to worry about a surge frying your devices. The built-in 6.3A fuse keeps your devices safe, wherever you might be...

Risks and challenges

Given the size of Micro, we had a very small space to manoeuvre all components into, integrate all the functions of a universal travel adapter and refine the design. We’ve faced many challenges so far but have done our due diligence to research, test and optimise all functions before going on to identify the most qualified manufacturer capable to deliver such an innovative product. At this stage, we need our minimum listed goal to fire the machines and bring Micro to life.

And this is where you come in. Mass production efficiency is a numbers’ game, which means that the higher the demand/number of orders, the quicker we can start and scale production and optimise logistics accordingly.

Our goal is to meet and exceed your expectations without compromising on the given timelines and the quality of the product. We promise to work like madmen, around the clock, until we will have delivered on that commitment.

Needless to say, we will maintain complete transparency and will communicate with you through all the campaign and manufacturing stages so you are aware of the progress every step of the way.

So if you love Micro, or just get a kick out of seeing the entrepreneurial spirit thrive, please back our campaign because only together we can take this amazing project to the next level!
