About this project
What a fantastic ride Kickstarter Fans!! We thank you all from the depth of our hearts for your encouragement, support and time in helping us take this dream and turn it into a reality. We have already launched the pre-production, machining the molds etc. We are working very closely with the manufacturer to be sure we use the best materials to produce your MySaver products.

The last day is here and although we have put forth a great effort to reach 3000/30, we may not reach that number, but considering how hard we know you have worked to spread the word - today we have over 1500 since we announced the special reward for the 3000/30
AN EXCELLENT REWARD TO OUR AWESOME BACKERS!
During this last 30 days everyone who backs this project with a pledge of $8 or more will receive along with their paid pre-ordered MySaver product(s), your choice of a MySaver:Diy kit or a $10 credit towards a complete MySaver:Pro!
Everyone who backs this project with a $1 to $7 pledge will receive a $5 gift card to use toward any future MySaver product purchase (redeemable only on the mysaver ecommerce site, not redeemable in any retail stores).
THE FINE PRINT...
It’s the 30 day countdown and we are running up the score to find more awesome Backers like you! This reward will only be given if by 1:55AM EDT, September 27, 2011, we are at 3000 Backers or more.
The MySaver reward will only come in our sophisticated GunMetal Gray and will be shipped to you with your order.*
* NOTE: this reward will only be delivered as a bonus to your final pledge and not intended to replace your existing products in the pledge. You will receive an email at the end of the fundraiser requesting your reward choice.
The MySaver:Pro, shown below, comes fully assembled and complete, with docking and USB connectors + OEM grade docking cable.
MySaver:Pro and the MySaver:DIY are simple and unique products that we have carefully designed to protect the life of these very fragile docking cables.
MySaver:Pro and MySaver:DIY are both available in 5 original colors + our new Gunmetal Grey, also shown above.
If you're like me you know these cables eventually break or short out when you need them most, leaving your prized iPhone completely out of charge. These cables are the lifeline of not only the iPhone, but all iPads and iPods. A break in a cable could cause a pricey repair, or a day spent looking for a replacement. That happened to me, and yes it sucked. Thus out of necessity the MySaver cable protector has been designed and engineered smartly using high-grade aluminum and secure, flexible silicone in five colors for personalization, and to provide a beautiful, protective solution to an ugly problem. Considering all the photos we received from a simple request to friends and associates to send us a photo of broken cables, we are convinced of the enormous need for the MySaver cable protector.

Because we believe in preventative maintenance to protect the life of our Apple products and understand that some of you are DIYers, we are offering the no tools required, easy to assemble MySaver:DIY cable protector kit.
Note the MySaver:Pro and Diy are completely compatible with the following Apple products, as noted on this chart.
Below: the mysaver connectors are small but secure, the protective tab is smaller then a US quarter.
Our plan is to use the money to get the initial mold and for production set up, working with a pre-selected factory and suppliers to produce this first edition family of products. We have sourced quality producers and have been prototyping and testing the products and designing the sustainable packaging.
We are seeking to raise $15,000 from our backers on Kickstarter and have set up special Kickstarter only pricing to thank you for your support plus provide you with these essential products to protect your own iPhone, IPads and iPods docking cables before you can find them in your local Apple Store (we hope-our ultimate goal). The MySaver is the only cable protector that we know of and we fully-assemble it on a OEM quality replacement dock connector to USB cable, fully compatible with all listed products, (see chart) and are giving it away here on Kickstarter for $19 the usual retail cost of a replacement cable alone.
iPad, iPhone and iPod, Apple logo and Apple are registered trademarks of Apple Inc.
NOTE: If your interested in selling the MySaver product in your store, please contact me regarding pricing and wholesale minimums etc.
the cable is the same length as used by Apple, 40" - 1 meter
What a first day, we are designers and not a corporation, so I am going to try and accommodate any and all special requests. The best solution is to send me and note and simply up your pledge to the correct amount. The mist common quest is for a MySaver:Pro and one DIY in addition, for us customers that would mean increase the pledge by $8. We will contact you for the colors and shipping info at the end of our pledge period regardless, just be sure to let me know your "special order" when you pledge.
Much smaller then a US quarter, look into updates to see the accompanying image with all the final dimensions show.
Yes, just go to our site and we have set up a small online store, here is the link

if you order soon we will be able to add your order to this original shipment, but please do it soon. Thanks Thomas
We are almost complete, we have sent most, however we are going carefully thru the database, to be sure we dont miss anyone (and of course we did ;-(, We counted about 50-75 or so far, if you did not get yours we will send each backer an email with the timing for the next round of shipments.
Right now we need a couple of days to develop this last database, potenitally assemble a few more of the products and get the emails to the folks who we may need information from, (for example we cannot send to po boxes).
thanks, we wish you all a great holiday!
Yes in each pledge we have included shipping. they are separated by US and Canada, and International If not specifically mentioned, shipping worldwide is the fee for products shipped to Hawaii, Alaska and U.S. Territories
The MySaver protectors come in metallic silver, and matching Apple green, pink, orange, and blue. Great for personalizing multiple users and products. We will produce all the the silicone parts in fine quality material with a semi-transparent "sandblasted" look. we need a minimum order of 250 in each color to produce - you will be notified for your first and second choices.
Yes, we have researched and will include in all MySaver:Pro orders an OEM grade great quality docking to USB cable. (the all new 2011 style 30 PIN connector). The docking connectors are the most recent version fully compatible with all listed devices. (we suspect also the new ipad3, more on that later)
The idea is to use crowdfunding and social media, we wanted to test to see how it would work
1. If every one who pledged to date shared the word, invited a friend, we would easily get to 3000 subscribers.
2. We hate sales so we decided if we reach this number everyone will get a free MySaver, even if you slack and do nothing, pretty cool!
3. Maybe you will get a free one, why don't you check back in the last days you can always see the number of subscribers. If were close or over your in! If not it is easy to change your pledge. We wanna give me away!
4. Final and best solution, invite 3000 of your closest friends to back a MySaver, for sure you will get your free one.
