What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Ensure your laptop stays protected with the MAGTOP Magnetic Laptop Charging Cable. Taking a page from the Apple Magsafe , this incredible cord prevents damage to your charging cable and port and helps to avoid accidents and damage to your laptop.

Complete with a magnetic design, the MAGTOP Cable connects to your current cable and your laptop, with a magnetic connector in the middle. This innovative design allows the cable to break free when it encounters strain so it’s yank-safe and snag-free. 

With MAGTOP, there’s not worry about tripping over your cables or yanking it from the charging port. In addition, the MAGTOP Cable glows in the dark to make it even easier to see. 

Moreover, plugging in has never been so easy. With the strong magnetic system, the MAGTOP Cable automatically connects when in close proximity.

Similar to Apple's MagSafe feature, we have created our own unique version. Introducing the first magnetic snap feature for all brands and models of laptop.

Since our first prototype we have tried to develop the best magnetic power cable for laptops. Safe, useful and durable; only in Kickstarter.

 
 

For many years using laptops we have snagged the power cable or yanked the notebook to the floor, breaking the screen, the HDD: and ruining connectors and cables. We got tired of spending time and money and we began thinking about finding a solution. Magtop is a simple concept, a safety cable extension with a magnetic link in the middle.

Save your device from accidents and damages. Our Magtop accessory is an innovative magnetic power cable that will make your life just a bit more safe and convenient.

Magtop is available for all brands and models of laptop, new and old ones.

  • For all these brands and many more.
  • Not available for Apple laptops
  • Connect Magtop to the power supply
  • Connect Magtop to your Laptop
  • Bring the magnets closer together

Magtop works as an extension of your laptop power cable. 

Everyone who has a Laptop needs a Magtop. Gamers, teachers, students, teens, parents, grandparents, professionals, geeks, ...

You will use Magtop everywhere: library, bed, classroom, office, airport, studio, desk, couch, ...

No matter what you're doing with your laptop, Magtop is right there for you. After some prototypes, we have tweaked every last detail to arrive at the Magtop you see today. Be Safe with Magtop!

Easy plug / detach. Round 360º magnets bring you an easiest and improved connection.

Gold plated and spring loaded pogo pin connector provides a secure connection with ultra low contact resistance at the contact surfaces. 

Most magnetic couplings have a magnet on one side and iron on the other side. We put a magnet on both sides to give the best performance.

Glows in the dark. Magtop cable is made with a high reflective material and color which gives high visibility in low light situations.

Up to 150W 24V DC Power supplies.

Heavy duty and excellent corrosion rating, supporting harsh environments.

Suitable for all new and old Laptops and Netbooks. Available for all models and brands.

3 Years Warranty.

The product you are seeing in this project is the result of innumerable hours of iterating and reiterating to give our best.

Despite of having a final product ready to produce, we need your help on this crowdfunding campaign to promote and collect the minimal amount for our first mass production for our Kickstarter backers.

Magtop is based in Spain. We will ship Magtop anywhere in the world by June 2017.

We are a small team who are all experienced professionals in various fields, but above all we love inventions.

Carlos Fernández is an electrical engineer, keen on technology and gadgets. He is the one who designed and created our series of prototypes of Magtop.   

Pablo Fernández: With a background in marketing online, Pablo is the one making sure we are on track.

All this project could not be possible without the help of our collaborators in different parts of the process. Thank you very much to all of them.

Risks and challenges

Creating a new product is inherently risky, with unseen challenges that inevitably spring up over the course of development. However, we have already been testing and iterating for over a year. We have developed multiple generations of prototypes and have today a working final product.
