About this project
Meet the Vis Tiger, the baby brother of the ultra-successful Vis. Check out the Vis on www.jumperpowerlabs.com. In order to reduce costs we have replaced the Vis’s aluminum casing with a high quality durable rubber outer shell as well reducing the manufacturing cost via scale. Other cost saving processes have been incorporated without sacrificing performance or quality. Even with increasing the battery power from 6,000 mAh to 8,000 mAh which provides 25% more power, resulting in increased performance and capability We are still utilizing our high quality macromolecule polymer, soft pack engineered battery pac and added the capability to charge your notepad or laptop (16v & 19v)
ALL THIS WITH REDUCING COSTS, RESULTING IN THE BEST PRICE OF ANY DEVICE OF THIS NATURE ON THE MARKET TODAY.

Risks and challenges
Jumper Power Labs was born out of the rapid, revolutionary development in new battery pack technology, catalyzing in our dream to build product that satisfied their ideas for the perfect power bank.
Our inaugural product VIS was named in honor of the Latin word for 'useful power'. We thought it was fitting considering the tremendous utility that has been engineered into this product. VIS Tiger was designed to take as much as possible from the 8,000 mAh high output Cobalt B Lithium-Ion battery pack that is fitted inside. The VIS Tigher is a powerfully engineered instrument able to solve multiple problems as they may arise on life's long road of adventure.
Our strategic battery and tooling partner in Taiwan Kuan Yu Lu has worked tirelessly over two years in order to develop what we have today: a truly portable multi-function power solution we are proud to call the VIS Tiger
Current Market Challenges
Small portable power banks, offer great portability with no utility. Large jump starter's offer jump starters without any portability (or other utility). Where is the balance between portability and utility? Why isn't there a product that continuously finds new ways to reward those who have it? Why not a $60 power bank, a $140 jump starter, $40 flashlight, $50 laptop charger or the Vis Tiger all in one for much less than half the price!!!

Jumper Power Labs needs to raise $30,000 via the KickStarter community in order to pay for tooling and enter production at our manufacturer’s production minimum. We work directly with the manufacturer, a highly respected Taiwanese’s company that has been in business for over 30 years
Kickstarter has revolutionized the process entrepreneurs, idea people, and creative people alike go through in order to turn an idea into reality. This community has given us the opportunity to create a multi-function, utility power bank that I know will add tremendous value to everyone who pledges, it has been a companion of mine for a few months now :) I thank you for taking the time to read through our campaign and for being a part of such a great community!
Risks and challenges
We work directly with the manufacturer which gives us confidence in producing the VIS on schedule. However, issues within the manufacturing process do occasionally happen that are unexpected; this would delay our delivery. We believe we will be able to deliver in a timely and efficient manner, and do not foresee any risks and challenges that would cause major delays. Regular communication with our backers will make sure there are no surprises.
