Failed Prototypes in the early days.

It started with a college student who had too many devices in her flat. My laptops, camera, smartphones, power bank, table, stereo … they all need be plugged in, usually at the same time. There was really not much space to spare in my tiny apartment; the bulky power strips I used was just taking a lot of unnecessary space, not to mention the thick messy cables flying all around.

As a frequent traveller, I know that travel adapter is a necessity on the trip. But not many people realize that power strip, is also a necessity. We complain that there’s not enough electric socket or USB charging port at the airport and in the hotel. The reality is, we need power strips while traveling, but we don’t bring them. And the reason is simple: Power strips, or power cubes, are way too bulky; and they aren’t able to adapt to different socket types. The fact is, there is no power strip on the market, Kickstarter projects included, that is able to keep its cord under control: cord storage and length adjustability are essential, but lacking in all the power strips out there.

The idea of MOGICS Power Donut (and Bagel, which is an universal version of Donut - UK, EU, AU, US) is to design something elegant and powerful. Integrating with the MOGICS Adapter, we are able to combine both the functions of a power strip and a travel adapter - both of which are conventionally big and bulky - to create the perfect travel solution, with added perks such as Integrated Length-adjustable Cord, spare Safety Fuse, dual USB ports supporting Fast Charge, as well as an ergonomically designed AC plug -- all this, light and slim enough to slide effortlessly in your pocket.

On the other hand, when I’m not traveling, MOGICS Power Donut serves as the best power strip (or power ring) in my daily life; keeping my desk neat and impeccably organized. Sharing the power on-the-go, and saving the space when you're alone.

Integrated Safety Fuse 

Apart from the integrated Safety Fuse we already installed inside, for added security, an additional spare fuse (also 6.3A) is stored within MOGICS Power Donut as well as Bagel. 

Dual USB Fast Charge 

Supports 2.0A USB Fast Charge, and with 2 USB ports, MOGICS Power Donut and Bagel gives you a more efficient charging experience. 

LED Power Indicator

A brilliant blue LED indicator lights up when Donut or Bagel is plugged into an AC socket source; when you see blue light, you'll know power is connected.

Revolutionary Cord Design

With a rolling mechanism developed by MOGICS, AC cord storage has never been so compact. A 3 feet ( 92 cm ) Right-Angled Cord is integrated in Donut and Bagel, completed with unique Auto-lock Cord Stoppers to adjust the length of the cord to keep it all neat and organized. No more messy flying cords. 

Ergonomic Plug Structure

We conceive and create MOGICS products to the finest details. Even the integrated plug is designed and structured to be ergonomically easy to plug in, and plug out.

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.

Delivery Schedule

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 April, however, if there are issues with the components, we will need time to fix it and make sure everything works perfectly, and this may delay our original schedule for around 1-2 weeks.
