Coming down to the end soon.
Still gonna make the stretch goal, with your help!
I've watched a lot of Kickstarter projects and the week before the end is always the doldrums. Then right at the end there's a mad rush. I'm sure we're still going to beat our $150k stretch goal in those last couple of days. And I really want to, because the travel case will be a very cool addition to the product mix.
To help us along the road here are a few extra perks everyone can add to their current pledge. These are just a few simple accouterments to enhance your Elroy experience. All you have to do is total up what you'd like to include, and add that amount to your current pledge. At the end of the pledge period we will be sending out a survey, and in that survey you can mark the items you chose. Here's what we have:
- USB wall charger for Elroy - $10
- X-long USB charger cord (3ft) - $5
- Second set of shorty cord earbuds - $20 (that's $20 off reg price)
- Second EVA travel case - $10
- Second Elroy t-shirt - $20 ($5 off reg price)
Couple of notes here: 1) The charger is a standard 5W wall charger and we will offer it with the standard socket configurations for your country. It will be useful for charging any device which uses a USB port. It'll be small, compact and perfect for travel. 2) Elroy will include a short charging cord, so if you need a long cord, this is the time to pick that up.
Definitely check these guys out!
Regardless of how much battery I pack into the Elroy, some of you power users are going to figure out a way to run the thing dry. I've taken notice of another project on Kickstarter that will fit the bill in that situation. Check out Devotec's Fuel Micro Charger. They started on Kickstarter the same time as Elroy and their emergency charger would be a great way to keep your phone or Elroy charged up when you are on the go. They have a funky little design, and I am chatting with them about working together on some cool new product ideas. The link to their KS project is here.
New Elroy earbuds update
Joe made some adjustments to the design based on feedback we got from everyone. Here's the latest image that he just sent over to me. I think I'm liking these a lot! Would love to hear everyone's thoughts.
