About

Boost Band is a Wearable Portable Power Bank that can charge any device on the go and is the first of its kind. We've designed and developed the band to be comfortable and sleek for every day use.

How Boost Band was conceived 

The idea first came to light after Paul received a power bank as a gift. When he started using it a close friend made the comment that it would be better if it were on your wrist, but the spark didn't happen there. A few weeks later David had his first experience with a power bank at a music festival. After losing two power banks and struggling to keep his phone and GoPro charged, he knew there had to be a better solution where you could keep it on you without any extra effort. Once back David brought up the idea to Paul and they ran with it from there. Right away they knew they were on to something.

Boost Band Specs

The boost band houses a circuit with Mini USB input and USB output making it universal to any device. It also has a 1,500 mAh capacity battery. 

This would give an iPhone 6(1800mAh) about 80% extra battery life and a samsung galaxy S5 (2800mAh) about 50% extra battery life. 

The band is made of a thermo plastic elastomer with a cover fitting that securely holds the components in place within the band.

Why we need Kickstarter help

We've fully designed and developed the product we just need help bringing it to market and mass producing it. 

REWARDS

The reward we're most proud of is the Patriot Boost. For this reward you will receive a Patriot Red boost band and we will also donate one to Operation Gratitude to support our troops.

We not only need your financial support we also need help spreading the word. Please share this campaign and help us reach our goal to make the Boost Band come to life.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is meeting our funding goal to bring this product to life. Without reaching that goal we will not be able to mass produce the product at the needed volume to reach the retail value.

Also if we have a large demand for the band there will be a delay in receiving it for the quantities over the original goal. This delay will be about an additional 14-30 days for the second and third batch. This is due to the manufacturing speed of the volume.
