You will never run out of power. QuaD bag is comfortable to carry around, easy adjustable, designed for laptops up to 15" and convenient to use an iPad directly from a bag; and so much more.. Scroll down and find out more about QuaD.
QuaD is a new home for your iDevices. QuaD charges your iPad and iPhone simultaneously while working, walking, running, driving, sleeping. You will love watching a movie on iPad directly from a bag while traveling. Your iPad will stay fully charged even after six hours of watching.
Why Kickstarter and why do we need $ 40.000?
This platform is made for open-minded people, who want to buy innovative products before they reach in-store market at favorable prices; in the same time the backers support the creators on their journeys. All QuaD bags shown in the video are our functional prototypes, and therefore we hope that with your help we will bring QuaD to manufacturing process. For 40,000 $ we plan to purchase large quantities of waterproof material, build the moulds of iPad holder for manufacturing, and finally, manufacture QuaD at affordable cost.

Today, getting the information is key to success. We live in very fast environments, and you nowadays you are able to access the information through your devices. Once your are out of power, you're in trouble. Missed meetings, important calls, schedule, urgent situations, etc. QuaD solves these issues once forever. You can now power your iDevices directly from your bag, and you'll never run out of power.
Integrated iPad holder:
iPad holder is made exclusively for the iPads and it is integrated in QuaD bag. Transparent side allows a free use of iPad while keeping the iPad clean and protecting it from damaging. YES, it is made from a thin material in a fashion that allows using an iPad while it is in a bag. This holder has been integrated in QuaD bag and we have filed a patent; for security reasons, after patent-pending status is officially changed, we will disclose all the details and its configuration.
Engineered for comfort
Quad is very light (3.7 lbs= 1.8kg) and you can carry it all day, despite all its features and technology. Precisely designed shoulder strap and handle allows you to enjoy full comfort. Moreover, you devices will also enjoy full comfort and safety since our waterproof materials keep iDevices safe and dry. Please check more features of QuaD:

MacBook Charger Pocket
MacBook Charger Pocket is the bottom section of the bag. Ideal for chargers and items that are more sensitive and should be kept separately. The pocket is designed for a lunch box, which is locked at the moment. Other than that this pocket can be using for carrying a thin after-work shoes.
1) Box to go ( unlock at 70.000 $)
We came to an idea to have a lunch box designed especially for QuaD bag. The box is designed in a fashion that sandwiches, and hot-dogs we like can fit the box.
The main idea behind this is that some people are shy of carrying home-made food with them to their work place. Click mechanism of the box allows easy opening-closing without spilling.
2) Voter's Choice Color (unlock at 100,000 $)
Quad fits every occasion
Quad is very convenient for air-travels. You can enjoy your travel from New York to London watching movies on your iPad without running out of battery. Furthermore, in 6-8 months every continental flight will have wireless access and it is important to stay fully charged. QuaD is all you need, a complete hand luggage.
Enjoy your iPad while traveling to work
Initial idea in brief:
Manufacturing plan in brief:
Initial idea in detail:
In January 2012 Steven and I (Paul) have travelled across America and Europe. The reason why we have travelled was mostly because of Steven, in other words, Steven's talents for engineering. He was sent to London to complete assigned tasks.
As you might guess, we were a sleep and we screwed it up. While traveling further and analyzing what just have happened to us, we started thinking constructively. We decided to do what we love, and not let our ideas stay only ideas.
We have bought every single device of Apple, since we are true fans of iPad, and apple devices in general; during the travel we have realized that we need a home for our iDevices.That is when story begins.
We collaborated with other members in order to create something new on the market that will hopefully have impact on people's lives.
Manufacturing plan in detail:
We have reach the stage when we need your help to manufacture QuaD. This development stage implies that final moulds should be made for production. We have made a strong links with several manufacturers in order to minimize the risk from manufacturer side. In May, if we successfully complete Kickstarter.com side of a story, we plan to confirm a pre-signed contracts with manufacturer. Right after we plan to include hints and tips from kickstarter page and create first QuaD bags. Our waterproof material is from domestic market. All the zips will come from Arizona and iPad holder will be imported from Switzerland (since our holder manufacturer is based in Zurich, Switzerland). The final assembly will be done in USA. We cannot be more exited to share QuaD project with you. Please check our rewards

Risks and challenges
The possible risks with manufacturer we tried to minimize by having several of them on pre-signed contracts. Once the project receive the funds we will activate existing contracts and manufacture our QuaDs.
84% of the projects on Kickstarter are having delays and that is why we want to be realistic with the shipping and delivery dates. It is very possible that you might get the product earlier in our case.
Dimension team only makes contracts with truly reliable partners. Thus battery producer, iPad holder producer and others have to follow the rules, standards and regulations of product security and safety.
If process become overwhelming, we will hire new members on a short-term basis to help us. All that's needed at this point is the funding so that we can officially place our order!
