Exciting News!!!

We have some exciting news. We have hired another engineer who has assisted us to make an even better cable converter. As you know, the original cable converter design could only do charging. We are now able to manufacture our magnetic connectors in a way that not only supports the charging but also supports all the data functionality of the cable. We believe that this cable converter will be even more reliable than our original and because of its data function capabilities we have created extra accessories that work with it.

• Compatible with all USB-C MacBooks and other Type C devices.

 • Snapnator Pro supports up to 100 watts of power transfer, 5K video, and 10GBs of data throughput • If somebody trips on your cable, the magnetic quick release connector will save your laptop from falling off the table.

 • Symmetrical pin pattern allows you to connect it upside down or right side up for ultra-convenient snap-on connection.

 • The open pin design greatly reduces the possibility of debris or gunk getting lodged inside the connector unlike a typical Type C connector.

 • The exterior is made from a single piece of aluminum for extreme durability.

As you can see, with the new Snapnator Pro data capability it will also work with any Type-C connector hub. type-c hub. We would also like to mention that the Type-C connector hub in the picture will also be available on our website. 

For those of you who have still not received your rewards. We want to thank you for your patience. The manufacturing of our original cable converter has been painfully slow with a number of setbacks. Our new engineer has helped us make much better tooling for our new data cable converter, so we have been able to manufacture it must faster than our original design.

We wish we could send you our new cable converter with the data capability. However this cable converter cost a bit more than our original cable converter with only the charging capability. For this reason we would like to give you the option of sending you a coupon code for the amount of your pledge towards the purchase of our new cable converter.

Our current inventory consists of 2000 of the new data cable converters, 446 original silver cable converters, and 347 gold cable converters. We still need to deliver rewards to approximately 1000 people.

So we would like to offer you the following options.

A) request a coupon code (equal to the value of your pledge ) to purchase our new cable converter from our website.

B) we can send you the original cable converter with only the charging capability from our inventory. Let us know if you want gold or silver, but please understand we cannot guarantee which one you will get. We have had a great deal of trouble manufacturing the original cable converter. We plan to discontinue this design and have limited inventory.

Please email to service@snapnator.com explaining if you want option A or option B (with your request for gold or silver).

We want to say Thank You! Again we want to thank all of you for your support. We could not have done it without you. For everybody who has already received our original power only cable converter and is interested in our new data and power cable converter. We would like to give you the opportunity to purchase our new Snapnator data and power cable converter from our website at 50% off. We will be doing this by sending you a coupon code with a $19.50 value towards the purchase of our new Snapnator data and power cable converter. We will also send these coupon codes to people who choose option B.

For people who choose option A, we will also send you a coupon code of $19.50 to be used towards a second cable converter.

For people who choose option A, we will also send you a coupon code of $19.50 to be used towards a second cable converter.

For those of you who choose our new design. We cannot be more proud. We really hope you like it. Again thank you for all your support!

Regards,

      This is worse than the Nigerian scam: you inherited 8Mio dollars, but in order get the money you need to pay a lot of money.... what's worse: I paid money to receive a product, which still hasn't been delivered after 18 Months!!! now you want even more money from me?? The most honest way for you would be to install option C: refund the backers that haven't received any product yet. Backer 8,784.

      Seriously? Still nothing delivered, You have the original survey and still are incapable of delivering the product, the options you are now offering don't even include the color originally on offer. It is very hard to remain respectful and considerate! Backer number 9809.

      I am backer #9558. Please send the original one that I ordered. I will definitely not be giving you any more money.

    10. John Helmus on

      Backer #7,191 never received original product. I will not pay more money to you. You need to send the new product to the original backers since you have their money. the fact that they are more expensive is your problem and was your decision. Either that or refund me immediately. If i receive no satisfactory reply within 14 days, i will begin working with Kickstarter to throw you off the platform.

      Everyone - Learn your lessons from me and others posting in the comments here. I'm backer 6788 who paid $60 for the Double Luxury Kit which was supposed to include 2 Snapnator connectors, 2 Snapnator Adapters and 2 USB C hubs. It's 4/22/18 and I've never received anything from them. I've emailed them at the service@snapnator.com email address, posted comments on their kickstarter board and even messaged them through the message function associated with my backer order. I've never received a single response. Perhaps some people have received theirs but to me they're a scam. Don't waste your money. Instead go buy from a legitimate business.

      Guys, I have reported the project to Kickstarter prior, nothing was ever done, just sent a tweet to them yesterday after receiving this FANTASTIC update, cannot wait to give some more of my money away, I mean seriously, CANNOT WAIT! NOT! Like over my dead body.

      The only other option I can think of is tweeting since email and reporting doesn't prompt them to do anything, maybe we get all send tweets to Kickstarter under the same hashtag to get them trending, then maybe, maybe then they will do something about it

    24. Joerg Lothmann on

      You guys are unbelievable. I am still waiting for my pledge to be delivered. I have contacted you multiple times and now you want more money? I want to know when the original pledge is going to be delivered for real.

      Christopher Beach on

      Wait, after not shipping anything to me nor responding to any of my messages you're now telling me my $34.00 is now only worth $19.50. And, I should then use that money plus some more towards another piece of garbage you're going to build that everyone complains about that you might or might not actually deliver to anyone?

      It's very hard to be respectful and considerate when you are openly committing fraud and disrespecting backers on here.

      You have to be kidding me. You told me I didn’t supply a phone number, so this was why my order was never shipped. Then I supply it and receive no further correspondence or product. Now you are telling me that my $34 pledge is only worth $19.50. Seriously there is so much wrong with this situation, you give a terrible name to every other project that tries to genuinely get off the ground on KS.

      I never received anything from these guys. It was a total scam that ripped me off as well as others based upon the posts, and I was shocked to see they audacity to try to sell some other product. Kickstarter must police its site more and stand up to scams rather than let them go on because KS benefits from money scammed from others. I will never use Kickstarter again.

    34. IAN BURGOS on

      Do not buy from these manufacturers. I never got my original purchase. Extremely angry at the fact that they are launching a new campaign without delivering on their original promise. I have never said this of anybody, but this is a real scam.

      This is the ripoff, stay away and by on real product on Amazon or another real producer.
      I and it is 1.5 years still getting email is shipping coming.
      I didn't get my order, no response to email or comments.

      STAY AWAY from this be safe

      Are you serious? Didn’t you steal our money with no intentions to send the first product to all but a few people (who mostly said it was pure junk). You failed to respond to numerous emails and tweets from myself and others. Now you want to see how many people will fall for the scam of “just give us a little more money”? Kickstarter should have shut you down. At this stage, if they they let you rip off more people, any class action lawyer will have an easy task of showing Kickstarter participated in causing the damage you have done. Beyond the financial loss, it just stings to know that after funding what I thought was an entrepreneur’s desire to launch a product, instead was just a classic hustle.

      Wow, no shame. Like many others, I never received my original Snapnator and it sounds like it's complete junk anyways. Now you're trying another round of pocketing people's money with fancy renders and big promises. No thanks.

    41. Eric L on

      I got my Snapnator a year or so late. Fine. But it was trash. It got so hot after only a minute or two of use, that I yanked it out and never used it again. Like many others, no way I was about to risk my 2000+ laptop on a small piece of metal!

    42. Michael Moldofsky on

      I never got my reward. 6067 is my backer number. I did not move. I have a LARGE locking mailbox. Again - I did NOT get my reward. I've posted twice before with no reply.

      As I said the original one was horribly assembled and the materials were super cheap, unless you completely changed your manufacturing process there is no way a new one would be any better!
