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!

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!
