Risks and challenges

The risks involved in the production of the Serene stylus are unforeseen internal manufacturing delays at the factory.This scenario happens from time to time depending on the complexity of the project. Based on my experience, I have simplified the design reducing potential delays, and feel very confident the factory will achieve satisfaction along with timely delivery. The engineering department at the factory has reviewed the design in advance and has confirmed there will be no significant challenges in the manufacturing or production of the tooling,molds, including production.

FAQ

  • The research that we found regarding screen protectors depends on the brand material type manufacures are using. Some protectors are made of slightly different material than others. Your stylus will perform best without one, although if you prefer to use one, we found that the two best performing brands to use is, Deal Extreme, or Zagg.
