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

Introducing the first ever cable only YOU can use! 

Meet the first ever cable with a built in combination lock - MyPlug! A revolutionary charging cable designed specifically to prevent people from taking your cable.

Passcode Protected

Each time MyPlug is connected to a power source, your custom 4-6 digit passcode must be entered to enable charging! If MyPlug is disconnected, the internal security device is reset and the cable becomes useless to anybody who doesn't know your code!

Keep them Guessing

If you feel like somebody may have discovered your passcode, you can quickly and easily change it, instantly re-securing your MyPlug.

Lending out your Cable... and getting it back!

Sick of lending out your ordinary cable only to never see it again? Now you no longer have to worry. MyPlug is equipped with a powerful feature called Guest Mode which will prevent the need for a passcode, for 1 Hour. Once the hour has passed MyPlug ceases charging and the borrower has no choice but to return your cable.

Far from Ordinary..

Unlike the average charging cable, MyPlug is designed with quality at its very core. By working with respected longtime manufactures, a relentless design team, quality materials, and Apple MFi certified components, MyPlug is definitely not just an ordinary cable.

MyPlug is equipped with the ability to be fully unlocked! It has the capability to be used as a standard charging cable making the security of the plug optional and guarding your cable at your convenience!

Super Compatible

MyPlug cable is available with MicroUSB, Type-C and Lightning Adaptor plugs and is compatible with any phone, tablet or device that requires those plugs. 

For example the following devices are compatible: (Plus More)
- iPhone 5 / 5c / 5s / SE / 6 / 6+ / 6s / 6s+ / 7 / 7+
- iPad 4 / Mini / Mini 2 / Mini 3 / Mini 4 / Air / Air 2 / Pro
- Android/Windows Phones and Tablets (our cable also supports Quick Charge)
- Power bank's and any other devices that require a MicroUSB plug.
- Any devices that require a Type-C plug.

MyPlug is pending MFi ("Made For iPod/iPhone/iPad") certification and is manufactured by a licensed manufacturer. We expect to be fully certified by January 2017 making sure that it will be compatible with any iOS and future iOS updates.

Colours and Sizes 

MyPlug comes in THREE different colours 
AND in TWO different lengths -
1.2 Meters / 3.9 Feet OR 1.8 Meters / 5.9 Feet

It all began with Doug

The need for MyPlug was discovered when an argument had broken out between two co-workers over a missing smartphone charger. We have all been in the situation where our cable has moved from the place we left it last, or let a friend borrow the cable only to never see it again. This can be very frustrating and expensive. Most charging cables also look the same which only assists the problem as it makes them much easier to claim by others as their own.

Where we are at?

After 48 Hours we created the first ever cable with a Built-In Combination Lock which we tested on friends and family and discovered that the need for a Theft Proof cable was very real. Currently, we have various working prototypes which are almost designed to perfection. We have established supply chains and selected manufacturers and are ready to being production. This is where we need your help! In order to mass produce and make the MyPlug affordable and inclusive of all its features we need you to help bring MyPlug to life! Back us now and take back charge!

Shipping

Our campaign is global! We plan to ship our cables all around the world at a fixed flat rate of AU $14. If we are successful in raising funds, shipments will begin in May 2017. 

Contact Us

We believe open communication is the key to a successful campaign.
If you have any questions please contact us through Kickstarter or alternatively send us a message at www.myplugcable.com/contact and we will respond as soon as possible.

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing the Cable
When starting out many small companies face difficulties when it comes to manufacturing new products. Issues with designs can often slow production or incur unexpected costs. By involving the manufacturers from the very beginning and along the way, we have reduced the likeliness of any serious issues from arising and causing problems during production.

Fulfilment and Timely Delivery
In case we become super successful and are flooded with orders, we have multiple plans in place to handle various different volumes. We have also made sure our manufacturers are easily scalable and can handle higher volume orders.

Quality Control
As quality is one of the most important factors of MyPlug, orders will undergo batch testing, bend testing and various other quality assurance controls to supply you with the highest quality possible.
