Dear Backers,

Today’s update is fairly long so we’ve split it into two updates:

  1. Initial Unravel Reviews… backers are LOVING Unravel! (see below)
  2. Charging Apple Watch Series 4 (see previous update)

It’s been three weeks since we finished shipping thousands of Unravels to our beloved Kickstarter backers all over the world. By now, the vast majority of you have received your Unravel. The initial reviews have come pouring in and most of you LOVE your Unravel! 


Here’s what people are saying,

Received my Unravel today, and wow I just love it. The packaging was well made and classy. Plugged it in and my iPhone and Apple Watch started charging right away. Love the look and feel. Well done. Great campaign. — Nomad, USA


Everything arrived and so far so good I’m in love with the product. —Federico, USA


Thank you, mine arrived yesterday. Looks great and it's working exactly as described. Delighted with it. The app for the 3rd party courier was very slow with updates. Overall it took a week from despatch to delivery but not a major problem. Would definitely recommend this product, it's versatile, looks good and does exactly what it's supposed to do. — Kirky, England


I originally thought my product was not working, but I was wrong! I purchased the correct size power brick separately, and now I can charge both my iPhone and Apple Watch together. Sweet product! Thanks for the quick response and assistance! — Jonathan, USA


I have been using the charger and like it very much! — Alex, Netherlands


I got mine yesterday and so far, seems to be working great! 😀 Worth the wait! I know delays are frustrating, but... I've backed other Kickstarters that have had much longer delays than this one has (like 6 months+). 😒 At the end of the day, Kickstarter isn't a store, sooo I always take delivery dates with a grain of salt whenever I choose to back a project — PandaFluff, USA


I'm really happy with it! — Martin, Austria


Received my 3x chargers , 2x AirPod cases. Couldn’t be happier 😉 — Johnathon, USA


I received my bundle of 60W power adaptor, unravel charging pad, EarPods wireless charging case and unravel case a week or so ago in Scotland. I’ve successfully used unravel with: iPhone XS Max with Apple Smart Battery Case, EarPods, iPhone 7S with wireless receiver (bought separately from another supplier), Apple Watches Series 3 and Series 4. Everything charges well without undue heat…..BTW - great packaging and overall I am very satisfied — Simon, Scotland


I got mine a week ago, just in time for a trip out of town. I’m thrilled with mine! I ordered a second one through the indegogo campaign. I’ve charged my iPhone XS, series 3 Apple Watch and air pods with the wireless charging case. —Dawn, USA


I just received my package today, everything is working perfectly! You definitely made a quality product. Now I’m just waiting for an update on the power bank. Keep up the great work Ampere ❤ — Einar, Iceland


Awesome day, Ampere Unravel arrived, still waiting for separate power bank to arrive. We travel 5 times a year and so far Very pleased with DESIGN, PORTABILITY, for an on the go traveler such as myself along with many others. Thanks for the product — Wellyn, USA


Hi Ampere, Today I received (Italy) the package with the Unravel, the 60W charger and the travel case. I immediately put under charge at the same 1 x iPhoneX, 1 x Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and 1 x Apple Watch 3. The charge was fast on all the devices over all my expectations. Only the S7 became slightly hot. I appreciate the quality of materials and the packaging. Good job guys! — Matteo, Italy


Received mine today. Packaging is great, and so far so good. My iPhone 8, Apple Watch Series 3, and AirPods inside the wireless accessory are all happily sucking up juice as I type. — Jason, USA


Received mine in the mail today, love it! — Amie, Australia


After using it and showing others how it performs, they want to buy some now. It works like a charm. :) — David, USA


Unravel received this morning and works perfectly with Apple Watch Series 3, iPhone X and Apple Airpods (I had an existing Qi charging case) using the Ampere Type C adapter. — Mark, Scotland


Update: I’ve had mine now for a few weeks. I charge an iPhone X and Apple Watch 4. I use a 60 W type C adaptor and everything charges as expected. The watch and phone get warm but not excessively. All my experiences so far have been completely within what the developers have said they are. — Nomad, USA


I received my Unravel this morning in Paris (France). Works perfectly with my iPhone and my Apple Watch v3. Good job Amperetech!!! — Jerome, France


I couldn't be happier with my new charger--it works great! Design is highly functional and attractive. I bought the Ampere charger because I'm not a Mac user and it seemed higher-powered and more compact than similar chargers. The packaging is well-coordinated for all the pieces. and instruction manual is thorough. You folks have done a remarkable job and exceeded all expectations! — RonL, USA


#UnravelAnywhere and Win a Trip ANYWHERE

We’ve been hearing from backers from USA & Canada to South America to the UK & Europe to the middle east to India to Singapore, Japan, Asia, Australia and everywhere in between that Unravel is improving your day-to-day by providing fast, portable wireless charging anywhere you go.

@melissamei says,

Love it when projects you back on Kickstarter come through. This Unravel wireless charger from @ampere_technology has three qi-charging panels to power up your phone and watch at the same time. Which means you only need to bring one friggen charger when you travel 🔋👌 . #traveltechheaven #UnravelAnywhere #Kickstarter

@dan_ni_li says,

“Finally got my Unravel Wireless Charging for 3 devices!! This was a #kickstarterproject and you can see I can charge my iPhone XS, AirPods via #hiqairplus wireless charging case and my 1st Gen Apple Watch! Thank you @ampere_technology.

@jilykins says:

@ampere_technology WOOT! "Unravel" wireless charger is here. Backed a winner. Contributed to my first ever Kickstarter campaign because I do love a tech gadget. So excited when it arrived for my birthday. Going away for a quick New Year Holiday and I don't have to take a million cables to keep our phones charged. Works perfectly! #amperetechnology #unravelanywhere #kickstarter #technology #wireless #winner #win

      Apple Watch doesn't charge, but it does get very hot to the touch - reported this and got a quick and thoughtful reply, but a lot of time has passed and I've received no update whatsoever.

      Emailed again to ask for a deadline on the replacement, hope they get their stuff together.

      Still waiting on my back order of Power Bank and world adaptors! Terrible service as no way to contact anyone!

      I received my 3 device and iPod chargers and the iPod charger doesn’t work. The 3 device charger gets so hot I’m afraid to leave it plugged in. I haven’t found a way to contact these people. I’m very dissatisfied. The products are unusable. It’s more convenient to carry a multi-port charger with cables, it’s by far smaller and safer!

      If I already mailed about the Apple Watch problem and received an answer, I don’t suppose I have to do it again?
