About

        

We will RELAUNCH this project soon! Click here to be the first to know when we do!

                      Stay charged ...and share when you get there!

                                                                          

                      The NEXT generation in wireless charging is here! 

WHAT IS EXO?:

EXO is the world's first wearable power bank. Its unique wearable design is ultra-lightweight, flexible and powerful. ...this is wearable wireless charging for true on the go power. A power strip Ironman would wear!

Whether you're hiking up a mountainside or walking the city streets, the last thing you need to worry about is power.  Now, you don't have to be stuck with the same old giant, heavy battery bricks of the past. Run, hike, bike, snowboard, or play all day with EXO wireless wearable power.

 

EXO CHARGE: designed to move with you

 WHY?: Because staying charged should be as easy as....click, charge, go!

We believe that staying charged should be a seamless extension of your everyday life. Bodies aren’t static, and they don’t have straight lines, so our wearable systems are built to be robust and flexible, keeping you in the action all day long!

EXO takes a wearable approach to charging, letting you wirelessly charge as you wear your power proudly. Its flexible center moves with you, and it magnetically attaches to the outerwear and sportswear you already own (...and to any of our other products currently under development).

EXO CHARGE: the core of your charged lifestyle (additional products coming soon)
EXO CHARGE: the core of your charged lifestyle (additional products coming soon)

Launching soon, OPS POWERWEAR will begin with lightweight jackets and performance wear ready to charge your life. With OPS' patent-pending Magnacharge® Technology, POWERWEAR gives you modular wireless charging that works universally with all of our products. Designed for comfort and performance, conductive fabrics and inks are woven directly into OPS POWERWEAR to keep you charged everyday.

...and this is just the beginning of wearable power. Rock on!

*POWERWEAR is currently not available for pledging during this Kickstarter campaign as it needs more development time while we finish patenting our proprietary conductive materials. They'll be available for pre-orders by December 2016. POWERWEAR is designed to seamlessly work with our ecosystem of products and will be a great upgrade.

       

            

            

     

 

 

 EXO CHARGE will change the way you stay charged because:

• Wireless phone charging is growing fast and gets rid of wires

• EXO's wearable access is convenient, and saves you real estate in your pockets

• Its ultra-lightweight, flexible batteries move with you comfortably

• Its interchangeable design is made for easy hot swaps

• EXO magnetically attaches to clothing for quick convenience

• And EXO is designed to be sporty, sleek, and sexy! Converts into a sporty accessory or something Iron Man would wear!

 

 

Our design for EXO was inspired by high-performance automobiles like Koenigsegg, Bugatti, and Alfa Romeo. Because of this, our EXO design team delivered sleek, clean lines built for speed. Hundreds of design team hours were spent from initial concept, to several iterations, to final design - a true labor of love!

EXO CHARGE: attention to every detail

Patent-pending FLEX-CORE® technology allows EXO to move with you during work and play. EXO's tough outer shell is both water resistant and shock resistant - rugged enough for almost any outdoor condition. Its sleek, modular design is exceptional, and its versatility clearly out-performs the everyday battery backup brick.

We set the bar very high for EXO, and the final design exceeds our expectations - functional, ultra-lightweight, sleek and sexy! EXO gives you modular flexibility at the core of your charged lifestyle.

EXO's design lives between form and function, where style meets utility.

  • Ultra-slim profile reduces bulk and fits anywhere for ultimate portability
  • Sleek pinstriped edges are beveled to easily hot-swap EXO units
  • Perfectly balanced for weight, yet flexible at its core for comfort
EXO: excels in almost any environment

EASY ON and ENERGY PREVIEW

Activate the EXO with the intuitive power button located in the OPS logo, or check your charge status with the preview button. One light for 50% and two lights for a 100% charge.

  

 

WHAT'S INSIDE...

EXO packs a serious punch in a small package. Inside you will find two high capacity batteries layered onto wireless charging coils, and our proprietary smart charging chip. OPS Magnacharge® Technology connects your EXO effortlessly for wireless charging. Designed for ultra-quick connections, EXO magnetically attaches to any of our products (currently under development) and it's adaptable to the clothing and gear you already own.

Early prototyping and design concepts: DESIGN, FUNCTION, COMFORT

We knew we were designing something that we would love too, so clever innovation played a huge part in the process. We've gone through several rounds of prototypes to get everything just right. Lots of hours, long nights, ...and coffee!!!

We have already invested a lot of our own time and money, hard work and sleepless nights. With 6 patent-pending technologies and unique insight into this market, OPS has a distinct competitive advantage. And we want to be transparent on how we spend the funds from our supporters. Here is a projection of how the funds will be spent: 

Funds raised will help us bring EXO to life and will be used as working capital. We will need to cover upfront costs such as tooling for injection molded shells, minimum order quantity thresholds of suppliers (raw material, assembly, packaging), and protecting our IP. EXO’s bill of materials is set and ready, but will need to be tweaked slightly for manufacturing. Testing and certifications are also part of the process to assure what we have built is safe and reliable to keep you charged during the best parts of life - fun and adventure! At the end of it all, we will be able to deliver a great product that you helped build.  After extensive R&D, designing, and product testing, we have completed working prototypes. Now we just need to carry out the last quality tests and wrap up the packaging design before we can begin production.

We have worked hard to develop and maintain strong relationships with our manufacturing partners and every link in our supply chain (often securing multiple redundant sources) to mitigate the risks inherent when launching a new product.   

Your pledge and support will also show everyone that you believe in our shared vision for wearable power. With your help and community feedback, we will continue to innovate as we define this entirely new category.

So, let's crush it ....and rock on!

Many thanks!

-The OPS Team

Risks and challenges

One of the toughest things about OPS is doing something that no else has done before - AND WE LOVE IT!!! Our team has decades of experience designing, engineering, and building great products for great brands. We have done our homework, so the risks are minimal.

Quality control is VERY important to us at OPS and thus, we are keeping our first run at 10k units. We have gone through great lengths to choose our manufacturing and supply partners very carefully to ensure they are well equipped to handle a project of our size. However, if any delays were to occur, we will always keep all backers up to date and in the loop, as we understand the importance of communication and we really want to share this entire experience with you all! ...and thank you for being a part of OPS!

What you are seeing in our videos and pictures are prototypes. The final products will be even better! You can sleep well at night knowing your EXO will be awesome!
