About

We all know operating phone while driving can be a hassle. The more you do it, the more dangerous and frustrating it becomes. Our vision has always been to create a phone cradle that is so convenient in use to minimize distraction from phone handling.One so effortless the device itself disappears into the experience. And so secured that you would never be distracted by picking up a fallen phone.

With Boltron, that vision is now a reality. Boltron combines driver, car, and phone into one entity, bonding each part to create the ultimate driving experience.

Effortless — Set & Charge, Take & Go

     Even on the BUMPIEST ROAD

Boltron was designed to hold your phone safely in all kinds of road condition. The semi-enclosed frame together with the spring back base allows the best stability to shore up your Phone as you push through both your daily commute and wild driving.

Boltron is very gentle in taking care of your phone. 

  • Anti-Scratch *
  • The form of the stainless steel frame/bracket fits snugly over the curves of your device without adding bulk. A silky, soft-touch finish of the silicone on the inside helps protect your phone from scratch.
  • Low Temperature *  
  • Traditional Qi wireless chargers are not very efficient and generate a lot of heat which causes the iPhone to reduce or stop charging completely to lower operating temperature. But Boltron will never get your phone overheated, not even close to being.
  • Interference-Free 
  • Traditional Qi wireless chargers have fluctuating electromagnetic frequencies that may interfere with iPhone functions like Touch & FaceID. Boltron uses a fixed frequency designated by Apple that does not interfere with Touch or Face ID.
  • Intelligent Reliable Protection System  
  • Overcurrent, Overvoltage, Short Circuit, and Overheated Protection.
  • Foreign Object Detection -- (FOD) is a safety mechanism which automatically interrupts power delivery if there is interference caused by a foreign object.
Obviously, Boltron (left) is much more effortless than the regular phone cradle (right).

  • CEO / Roberto Iten / Industrial Designer
  • Roberto is the man behind Boltron's creation. He believes that most of the products can be enhanced and totally reach a higher level, just like he did for the Boltron. He has a rich experience with the product designing work. Especially for tech products, he always has the angle on making the product stylish without sacrificing any usability.
  • Co-Founder / Anthony Maguire / Electronic Engineer
  • Anthony is Roberto's best friend. They attended the same high school and university. Anthony is the man behind Boltron's blazing fast charging experience.

In short, attach and bonding different things together is what makes us progressive and collaborative, to build a strongly bonded connection in things, and to integrate powers/resources in achieving a higher efficiency. We found the way to build up a perfect balance in bonding man, phone, and car all into one like a force of "trinity". Instead of letting all these factors interfere with each other, Boltron is more creating a complementarity among the factors and to make the driving experience improved.

So, we set out to design the world's first in-car phone cradle that redefines the category and better than anything else available: it's a driving companion—a cradle specifically designed to accompany on-the-go people, whether they are commuting around the block or around the state.

Risks and challenges

This project has already come a long way after several iterations of the product development. We've finalized our designs and there shouldn't be much to worry about toward the final fulfillment.

In any possible, certification might have a chance to slow us down a bit as the electronic hardware must be tested and approved by various independent agencies. We've gotten a head start on the process of FCC and CE certification. We’ll optimize our products in compliance with the certification and will complete it ASAP.
