About

Remember when we used to be tied down to big desktop computers and land line phones? Now most of us are mobile. That means we can work and play anywhere & on the go. However all of our mobile devices still need to connect and keep charged. So you end up with a mess of different devices and cables, resulting in a jumbled, disorganized collection of stuff that doesn’t always nicely play together.  Keeping organized has become a difficult task.  There has to be a better way right?  We think so...!

No Cables No Mess  .  Totally Awesome

STAQ is the world's first modular & portable mobile phone docking & multi-media system. It is an ultra compact, organized, and highly adaptable system of mobile accessories to power, expand, connect, share, and enjoy your mobile phone.  It keeps your phone off dirty table tops, enables storage and sharing files, free up your phone's memory, keeps it charged up all day and allows you to enjoy quality sound.  All WITHOUT messy cables!

Instead of carrying a bunch of different products that don't always play well together, and require a bunch of cables, STAQ's modules all seamlessly connect and work together as a system.  Each module is super portable.  It is a perfect utility for those who you're always On-The-Go (OTG).  

Magnetic connection ensures each module connects seamlessly with other.

How does STAQ works?

Instead of carrying all the messy cables, memory sticks, charger, bulky powerbank, and speaker...

With STAQ, you can leave them all behind!

The STAQ Modules

1) Portable Mobile Phone Dock 

2) Wi-fi Storage Device

3) Bluetooth Speaker

4) Expandable Power Bank System. 

Phone Stand - Docking . Syncing . Charging

Dock: Ultra thin & portable smartphone dock, size of a credit card, with integral MFi Lightning or Reversible Micro USB* connectors and built-in reversible USB cable with Turbo Charging.  When the turbo charging switch is turned on it stops data syncing, so it gets your phone charged up in much quicker time. 

*For Android phone users, the Micro USB connector will only work if your phone port located in the bottom center.  

The Dock can support your phone with or without a phone case (most thin cases).  It supports your phone in both vertical (both docked or undocked) or landscape positions (undocked). Never miss an important notification nor have to lay your phone on dirty table tops anymore. With the Dock you can view, charge and sync your phone like you never have before.

To keep the Dock as thin as possible, there is no bulky mechanical hinges. But instead we use the ultra strong and extremely durable DuPont Tyvek paper as joint for the top lid.  

Switch on to fast charging mode. The Dock will channel all power to your device by disallowing data transmission to shorten the phone charging time significantly.

Mix & Match the modules - Choice is Yours

Each STAQ module works perfectly on its own, independent of the others. Of course, STAQ modules play best when playing with each other :-) 

Size Matters

We kept STAQ as minimal and small as possible. So you can bring it wherever you go.  Most importantly, it save spaces and keep things neat.  Super convenience and makes your workstation looks awesome!

The entire STAQ system has the same foot-print as a regular credit card.

We designed STAQ to build up, not out. Just like in a dense city, flat real estate on an airplane seat back tray, cafe table, school lecture hall table, restaurants or hotel desk is limited.  STAQ goes up like a skyscraper, giving you more while taking up less space. 

Use STAQ anywhere - Maximize your Space

You'll find the STAQ system perfectly fits into public places with limited space.  But of course it also great for using at home or office :)

Risks and challenges

We are team of product designers, inventors, entrepreneurs and business executives who has combined 40 years of experience. When it comes to developing new products, even an experienced product development team like us are not exempt from accidents, unexpected challenges and obstacles.

The good news is that we have successfully launched and fulfilled Kickstarter projects before. Our know-how and experience will help us tackle unforeseen challenges that come our way. We appreciate our supporters and know the importance of transparent communications not only to delivery good news but also when we have to troubleshoot as well. We have our own in-house engineers, designer, project managers that are the best in the industries. Our contract manufacturers also are world-class suppliers to many international brands.

Despite our industry experiences, the STAQ project is a complex and challenging one. STAQ is unique and innovative that require many new custom parts in order for the system to work smoothly. We have to closely monitor components lead time, production management, and logistics so that we can stay on track to our timeline. There is certainly risk that we could miss our timeline projection due to circumstance outside of our control. More certainly is no matter what issues we come across, you will be the first to know about it. This is a journey we all ride forward together.
