About

Smart speakers are getting more and more popular and are increasingly used in households around the world. A smart speaker like the Google Home Mini and the Amazon's Echo Dot (2nd gen.) can assist the user by voice control. Just ask what you want to know, ask to play music or play a game with it. The smart speaker will answer your question or play the music you asked for. 

Also a lot of 'internet of things' products can be connected to the smart speakers and can then be controlled with your voice. 

Both smart speakers do not have a battery and hence are not mobile. By adding the specially designed portable battery Grabbatt, the smart speaker becomes portable.

The Grabbatt is the first rechargeable battery suitable for both the smart speakers Google Home Mini and the Amazon's Echo Dot (2nd gen.). It make's your smart speaker portable so you can use it everywhere in and around your home when in reach of your WIFI network. 

Amazon Echo Dot 3th generation
We will investigate whether the new Amazon Echo Dot 3th gen. can also be included in the Grabbatt design.

When you connect the smart speaker with your hotspot of your phone, you can use the smart speaker everywhere in the world where mobile internet is available. 

The Grabbatt is available in WHITE and DARK GREY. The color can be chosen later. We will contact all backer after the funding is complete. 

The contents of the rewards are very extensive but a smart speaker is not included.

By connecting the Grabbatt to your smart speaker, you can easily place the smart speaker in your garden, bathroom, bedroom, garage or anywhere else without unplugging and reconnecting.

Connect your Google Home Mini or Amazon's Echo Dot (2nd gen.) with the micro USB-connector on top of the Grabbatt. Click the speaker in the Grabbatt and you are good to go!

One of Grabbatt unique features is the QI function to charge. This makes it easy to use and ensures that your Grabbatt with the smart speaker is always ready to go.

With a fully charged battery, the Grabbatt will run your smart speaker for around 10 hours. Play your favourite music or play games with your assistant together with your family and friends for hours. The standby time is up to 48 hours. 

When its battery power gets low, the Grabbatt will give a modest warning sound to remind you to charge the Grabbatt before it will shut down. Place the Grabbatt on the wireless charger and stay connected to your WiFi or mobile network. During charging, you can continue to use your smart speaker.

At any time you can check the battery status of the Grabbatt. By clicking the blue button, the LEDs will show you the status. One LED means 25%, two LEDs 50%, three LEDs 75% and four LEDs 100% power is available.  One LED blinking red and a modest warning sound is hearing means the Grabbatt needs to be charged.

With the extra accessory ring for Amazon's Echo Dot (2nd gen.), it will fit perfectly in the Grabbatt and with the extended audio cable you can connect any earphone or audio device with a 3,5 mm audio plug.

We believe that all these features are a big advantage in the market and a big step forward in enabling artificial intelligence portable. With your support, we can make this competitive product that is excellent in design and features that will make your smart speaker even beter. 

 On the Grabbatt website you can read more about the team.

Here on Kickstarter we offer rewards with a maximum of three Grabbatts. However when you wish to order more Grabbatts at once, please contact us at the website of Grabbatt. Also for more strategic partners and retail stores, we are more then happy to answer any question you may have. Please send all inquiries via our contact webpage.

In December 2017 the the portable battery was born when the use of Google Home Mini in a fixed place in the home was unworkable. Listing to music, playing games or using the assistant was now possible everywhere in and around the home. 

In January we formed our team of experts. We know each other for years and all have our own companies with different disciplines in industrial design, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering. 

We started making multiple prototypes by 3D printing the housing and installing all the electronics inside to make a workable product. After this we had a lot of meetings with different producers to get a good view on how to produce the Grabbatt and what the production cost will be. We wanted to know all these facts before interducing the Grabbatt on Kickstarter to have a project that will be achievable.

                       
 
 
  

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter (so that means YOU!) is an important part of our project. We believe one of the biggest challenges is to deliver a stable product with a good look and feel as quickly as possible. We also believe that quality is a must and always comes first. That is why we have done a lot of work before going live on Kickstarter to keep risks low.

We have done a lot of 3D printing of prototypes to find the ideal shape for a perfect fit of the smart speakers. So your smart speaker can assist you anywhere and looks beautiful at the same time.

We spoke with multiple businesses with more than 30 years of experience who have guided other successful Kickstarter projects. We took their experience, advice and knowledge and put all that in The Grabbatt.
