Help us get to the next level. We have come a long way from our first prototypes and we can see the finish line in sight; but, we need your help. Injection Molding (this is the BIG EXPENSE), Design and Production Expenses, Cost of Materials... With help from our fellow Kickstarters, we will soon be Ready to Launch and Launch BIG!
NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT. WRIST CHARGE.
Are you tired of your cell phone going dead when you need it the most? Do you want to eliminate lugging around tangled cords everywhere just to keep a charge on your cell phone? Let Wrist Charge provide a new convenient way of always keeping your phone charged. Never again will you have to worry about losing your phone charger or even carrying multiple chargers for the same phone.
Wrist Charge is a uniquely designed phone charger that is the first of its kind. Designed to snap around the wrist when not in use. Wrist Charge is equipped with a flat wiring cable of proprietary materials made exclusively for Wrist Charge. The cable connects the USB input on one end and an input to charge any cell phone on the other end.
Wrist Charge offers models for the iPhone 5, iPhone 4s and under, and all Android phones. Wrist Charge is also compatible with any micro USB or 30 pin connector device. One size fits all. Always on you when you need it and out of your way when you don't. Wrist Charge makes a great gift for yourself or anyone else who needs a convenient way to easily charge their smart phone while on the go and free themselves forever from those tangled messes of wires.
It all started with Jerry's serendipitous "A-HA!" moment when he saw his iPhone charging cord laying on top of one his daughter's slap bracelets. Hmmm... What if we could combine the cord with the bracelet? How convenient would that be? No more tangled wires to carry around and you always have a charger right there on your wrist!
Jerry immediately went to work and created a couple rough prototypes to demonstrate the concept...
The Wrist Charge Team was assembled and we all went to work, putting in long hours fleshing out our ideas and putting thoughts to paper...
Innovation and Adaption: As we progressed with the design process, we came to the conclusion that the use of a slap bracelet was a great idea; however, it could definitely be improved upon. We went to work on creating a Wrist Charge that could securely connect around the wrist for a more comfortable fit...
We continued working on the final design, determining the best wires, connectors, layout, and materials to use...
We went to work with our engineers, developing 3 Wrist Charge models: one for the iPhone 5, one for the iPhone 4S and under, and one for Android devices...
Confident and SUPER Excited about our finalized CAD designs, we enlisted the help of a trusted manufacturer and had them create a prototype mold for us...
After receiving our fully functional prototype samples, we knew we had a WINNER...!!!
THE FINISH LINE: After over a year, we have come a long, loooooong way and the Finish Line is in clear sight! Everyone on the Wrist Charge Team has put in lots of hard work, long hours, and financial resources. But, to bring Wrist Charge to market, we need some help from our fellow Kickstarters. Injection molds are expensive and we need THREE of them (one for each Wrist Charge model - iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, and Android). The CAD drawing are complete and the samples from our Prototype Mold work flawlessly. Our trusted manufacturer is prepared to begin production on the three 10-cavity injection molds needed. They are also quite adamant about wanting to get paid... We humbly ask for your assistance, Kickstarters, so we can begin production on the molds, purchase the necessary materials for our first full-production run of Wrist Charge units, and continue in our marketing efforts.
Once our Wrist Charge project is fully funded, we will immediately begin production on all 3 10-cavity injection molds. Production of these three molds will take an estimated 30 days to complete. During that time we will purchase all the needed quality materials that have already been sourced so we can begin our first full production run as soon as the molds are completed. In addition, we are working on finalizing our Wrist Charge logo to be printed on each Wrist Charge unit and on our marketing materials. We will provide updates to all our Kickstarter backers of our progress. Finally, we have our fulfillment center standing by ready to receive, package, and ship to YOU your First Production Run Wrist Charge unit of your choice. This is our CHARGE TO THE FINISH and everyone here on the Wrist Charge Team can think of no greater honor than crossing the Finish Line together with our Kickstarter Family...
Risks and challenges
We have been hard at work since June of 2012 and have assembled an excellent team of quality professionals for manufacturing, design, marketing, and fulfillment. We are confident in our ability to deliver. All we need is a little help from our fellow Kickstarters to ensure that we are properly funded. Thank you for your support!
We are in the process of obtaining our MFI certification for the iPhone 5 Lighting cable and anticipate being certified soon - well before the end of our campaign. We will keep everyone posted on our progress!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
