Chargers for UK, EU, and Asia! -- also Backlit Keys survey (deadline Aug 2.)

One more gift before the weekend!

We're crazy excited to have all of you as supporters - every single one of you. And while we can't promise everybody everything, we're trying our best to provide the best experience for as many backers as we can. 

We've been taken aback by the number of international backers that we have -- so much so that our team took the time to source some reliable charger plugs for our international users. 

Each backer can now choose either a Type A plug (mainly used for US / Canada / Mexico / Japan), a Type C/F plug (EU, South America, Asia) or Type G plug (UK, Singapore, etc.)!

Two things to note:

1. Sorry, we can't cover every country! We're providing the major plug heads to manage the complexity.

2. The Superbook uses a standard Micro-B port for charging. Micro-B on one end, Type A on the other. So chances are the standard USB plug that most of you have lying around will work!

Backlit Keys Survey

Our team is excited about making our vision a reality, and we're beyond thrilled that we have such supportive & passionate backers to help us get there. You are all valuable members of our Superbook community, and we recognize when our community provides feedback we should take into consideration.

In the most recent update, we announced two stretch goals: 1) at 1.5M: a free Laptop Sleeve, and 2) at 2M: an upgrade for backlit keys. 

The 2M stretch goal would require everyone to get both the 1080p upgrade AND the backlit keyboard upgrade, or none at all. This caused some dissenting opinions, and we've heard some outstanding (and lively!) discussion around our decision -- and many backers requested us to conduct a poll to gauge community interest in a fair and transparent manner. 

Now, we generally avoid crowdsourcing product decisions, but this one felt appropriate. Thus, we're running a poll to collect feedback on our 2M goal before making any further decisions. This survey will be open from now until next Tuesday, August 2nd at 11:59 PST

As promised, we're keeping ourselves accountable, transparent, and trustworthy, and will share the survey results with you all when we finally reach a decision on how we're going to handle the 2M stretch goal. 

Please ONLY fill out this survey if you're a backer. We'll be verifying backer names to ensure survey validity!

Thanks for standing by Andromium through all this commotion! :)

Share the loooove!

Okay, now we're at the cheesy signing off part where we tell us how much you mean to us (because it's true). 

We really couldn't have done any of this without you - thank you once again for helping us make our dream your reality. We hope our decisions in this update demonstrate how much you mean to us - we work tirelessly to make sure every one of your voices are heard. 

Let's keep the momentum going and continue to build our Superbook community! Help us get to our next stretch goal by sharing the Superbook with your friends! 

Below are a few links that'll help make this process quick and relatively painless:

      Can you please advise the output amps needed for the adapter for optimal charging. In Aus here (Type"I" plug) http://www.worldstandards.eu/electricity/plugs-and-sockets/i/

      I really think that this should be changed to USB-C! This whole device is about future-proofness, so why ship with an already dated connector standard?

      it would be great to be able to use the screen with other devices using HDMI and the keyboard/battery too.

      I only backed at $1 to comment, although there's a chance I'll end up pledging for the 1080p version, so I didn't fill the survey. I posted my opinion on the previous update.

      USB Type-C would make a lot more sense than a micro B...... it's sturdier too

      Where is the options button - in anticipation?

      @Jacen. For Australia we don't get our plug Either the C/F or G will work with an adaptor.I'm guessing the A would also work at 240v ac. Ideally, to be on the side of safety consider using a locally approved charger instead. Most of us already have something. Some adaptors can be quite 'dodgey'

      I changed my pledge level after I took the survey, will that cause an issue when you go to verify my response?

      @creator, you should also check the poll for double user names. There are a few hundreds listed in the comment section.

      Will you email us before shipping as to which plug we prefer, or will you automatically send the correct plug?
      (In which case, Ireland uses the UK plug also)

      What is the output Amp for the charger? Hope it's a 2mAh :)

    38. Andromium Inc. 2-time creator on

      There's a general range that's safe to charge. AUS should be fine.

      any volt/amperage adapter is safe to charge? (in Australia here)
