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.

NOTE: If your interested in selling the MySaver product in your store, please contact me regarding pricing and wholesale minimums etc.
