What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Voyager Technical Specifications
Voyager Technical Specifications

The Voyager 120 Portable Power Station is designed to provide reliable mobile power for emergency situations when and where commercial power is unavailable. The Voyager is intended to be used for disaster relief, search and rescue, fire, law enforcement, and any other first responder teams to provide convenient, clean, and quiet power at an emergency site. The Voyager will power such items as computers, lighting, water filtration units and medical equipment. The Voyager will also recharge items such as cell phones, tablets, drones, two-way radios, and cameras. The list of things the Voyager can power directly or recharge is somewhat endless.

The Voyager 120 uses our Viper Lithium Iron Phosphate Power Cell as it's power source. The Viper was initially designed for the RV industry and because of its relatively small size, low weight, and large capacity it makes an excellent choice for our Voyager Line as well.

The Voyager is recharged in as little as 4 hours using the included Viper 20A rapid charger or using a portable solar panel plugged into the solar charge port.

You can connect up to a 1000 watt inverter to the output terminals lugs to convert DC power to AC power to run many different items that require a standard AC plug or use DC appliances by plugging directly into the popular cigarette style round outlets located on the main power panel.

The master power switch is used to completely shut down all power outputs and inputs on the Voyager. Its primary purpose is to provide safety while the Voyager is being transported however it is also an excellent feature to save power when being stored for long periods of time. The smaller on/off switch located on the main power panel is to control power just to the USB charge ports.

We are looking for funding to purchase the components and pay for labor to build the first production run of the Voyager 120 for a June 1st, 2018 release. We would appreciate any help achieving this goal.

Risks and challenges

We as a company as well as the individual owners have a lot of experience in the Manufacturing Industry. Venture Volt already successfully produces and markets products in the same category as the Voyager Portable Power Station. John Yozamp Venture Volt's CEO and chief product developer was the founder and product developer at Zamp Solar, a leading solar manufacturing company for the RV industry.

Even with a lot of experience in electronics manufacturing, you can always run into challenges. The Voyager's final assembly is performed at our facility in Redmond Oregon however many of our parts and components are sourced from different areas of the world. If we are not careful to manage our inventory carefully, it takes some time to have those items imported especially with regards to lithium battery cells and the restrictions placed on shipping.
