Two years ago, we first introduced the MOGICS Power Donut & Bagel here on Kickstarter:
Together with you, our inspiring backers, we were able to share power and save space across the world! This time, we have some upgrades and surprises in store for you with our fresh Donut & Bagel.
Some of the awards the original Donut & Bagel has won include the International Design Award 2016, Design TOKYO Best Product Award 2016, James Dyson Award 2016, and Golden Pin Design Award 2016... and more.
The MOGICS Donut (US version) & Bagel (International version) is the world's first and only Travel Power Strip, with 5 AC sockets (US sockets in Donut, universal sockets for Bagel), dual USB ports supporting Fast Charge, and an over 3 foot long integrated length-adjustable power cord, and an ergonomic AC plug. All this, designed to be smaller than a donut.
Once the campaign has ended, we have begun to improve the design of Donut & Bagel. The problem is, our original design of the Donut & Bagel is so compact, that any change in functionality will cause the dimension to increase and become less light and sleek -- and this is something undesirable for travelers.
Since the Donut & Bagel itself is already the ultimate design, we focused on improving the MOGICS Adapter and some special surprises for Donut & Bagel.
The New MOGICS Adapter has been improved in its design, structure stability, and compatibility coverage.
Previously, there was one batch where the soldering was not strong enough. So in the New MOGICS Adapter, we’ve strengthened the structure, making it even more stable when you’re overseas.
Through some of your suggestions, we found a way to advance the EU plug to another level. Now, the New MOGICS adapter has you covered in France, Belgium, Czech Republic…and all the countries with type E sockets, without any need for the additional converter plug.
Integrated Replaceable FuseEven in such a compact product, we managed to design a spare 6.3A replaceable fuse inside. For extra safety and convenience when you’re traveling.
Durable Carry Case
Some of you gave us the feedback that the original white carry case becomes dirty quite easily because of the color and material. So we went out and sourced for a material that is dark in color, with fiber texture that is even more durable with better protection and easy access to MOGICS Adapter.
We hope to send our thoughts and wishes to you through design, that’s why we are introducing the Special Editions to our Kickstarter backers, as a thank you for your part in our journey.
These 4 special editions incorporate different cultures, lifestyle and meanings, designed exclusively for our Kickstarter backers.
Official 5th Special Edition
The night version of "Around the World" Designed by @Harley Addison
The idea of personal customization was inspired by our passion for doodling -- on our textbooks, napkins... the sort. But oftentimes we lose our sketches as they are drawn on random objects. However, if we were to keep our artworks on something we use daily, it would be an appreciation of creativity while serving its functional purposes.
And since the holidays are coming, we want to invite you to design a unique, one and only, personal donut and bagel -- for yourself, or as a meaningful gift for your loved ones.
The customize laser engraving process is complicated and takes quite some time, that’s why we can only offer this exclusive reward to only 100 backers.

Risks and challenges
Due to the particularly small size of the Mogics Power Donut and Bagel, we had to use small components and figure out ways to integrate everything to optimise the design.
To minimize the defection rate during mass production upon successful Kickstarter campaign will require high skills and immense patience. We have done the EVT and moving on to the DVT and PVT now. Our team has a very strong background for design for manufacturing. We have the parts sourcing, manufacturing flow and testing procedures well defined. If the demand is high, we will be able to scale production and logistics accordingly.
Based on previous projects, backers would know that the MOGICS team is one that always delivers within a few months of time (we work like madmen to pull it off), and always on schedule.
Our production plan states that we will start shipping in Feb (for Early Bird first batch) and April (for the subsequent batches), however, since we only recently opened up for add-ons, this may require a longer lead time for our manufacturer to produce enough New MOGICS Adapters, and some extra time to coordinate with the logistics company.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
