Risks and challenges

Regulations to pass.
As a consumer electronic device, there are rules and regulations we must meet to sell our product. Namely, we need to make sure we meet standards for phone chargers, FCC regulation for consumer electronics, and fire/health safety regulations.

Time to spin up the production line.
We are making these by hand! We have estimated the time to produce Candle, but if we’re off, it might mean a delay in delivery. We have made a conservative projection for how long it will take to produce Candle, but unforeseen delays do happen. We will keep our backers up to date on progress and expected delivery dates.

Suppliers meeting deadlines.
There are some components of the assembly that we can’t make in-house. Mainly, this is the electronics subassembly​ and its constituent parts. We’ve done our darndest to get firm estimates on delivery time for any suppliers this applies to.
