About this project
Did you ever have a problem with your laptop or smartphone running out of battery during an urgent work? Did you ever want a powerful and reliable power source with you? Did you ever think how would it be to have a wall outlet in your pocket? We did, too. So we designed powerful, affordable and portable AC power bank with USB outputs for all of us. Now you have ACp. You just need to take out the your AC outlet from your pocket or your bag to continue to your life.
Don't worry about international power plugs. We designed two models for 110V 60Hz AC (US ) and 220V 50Hz AC (EU) standarts. Also ACp includes a free international adapter for all other power outlet plugs.
- 24000 mAh Lithium Ion Battery
- 1X US (110V 60Hz ) or EU (220V 50Hz) standard AC outlet up to 100W ( 120W Max)
- 2X USB Output ( 5V/2.1A and 5V/1A USB )
- Charge Input DC 19V/2A
- 1X additional MicroUSB Input for flexible recharging
- Can recharge from AC outlet, MicroUSB input or from Solar Case
- Self-recharge Time: 3 Hours (from AC outlet with included AC adapter), 5-6 Hours with Solar Case
- Total Battery Capacity: 88 Wh
- Battery Life > 500 full cycles
- Self Discharge Rate: 3% per month
Electronic protection circuits help protect your attached Hardware Devices.
- Safety : Over Charge protection, Over Current protection, Over Discharge protection, Over Heat protection, Over Voltage protection, Short Circuit protection
ACps used in images and videos are 3D printed prototype devices. Your ACp will be thinner and more pretier than prototypes. Dimensions of prototypes used in images and videos 12cmx14,5cmx3cm (4.7” x 5.7” x 1.18”) and 680gr
We will use two hubs for shipments if our project funded. We will ship ACps to US, Canada and South America from Atlanta, our second home and we will ship to international backers from Istanbul .
One of our team member working as a teacher at rural areas of Gaziantep / Turkey, mostly near Syria border. So he was always in a demand for a powerful, portable and flexible power source during his duties. There are a lot of different portable battery packs on market, but they are all limited to charging only USB powered devices or very expensive in price. So we decided to design our own solution, our own power bank with a solution that can power up anything. After long and hard days of designing, planing, drawing and working, now we want to share ACp with everyone.
We’ve been developing ACp since the summer of 2014 and we are finally ready to move to production. Your support will help us to share ACp with the rest of the world.
We need help of the Kickstarter community to finalize the engineering work and the production of the ACp. We have gained a lot of experience and taken lessons from our previous successful kickstarter project. Now, the only thing we need is your support!
Manufacturing a product is difficult. You can definitely believe that we learned this from a very hard way. it takes a lot of hard work and a serious investment to bring a final product into your hands.
We already have a budget for ACp project and we spend two weeks between 26 Jan - 12 Feb. in Shenzen and Guangzhou for searching a trustable manufacturer. We still have shortage of budget on this project. If we don't reach our projected goal of 21K we will not able to get the ACp in to your hands.
AVI Labs are team of designers, developers and coders.
AVI Labs began life in Gaziantep / Turkey as a mobile software development studio (Fabrikapps - http://www.fabrikapps.com).
Last year Fabrikapps comes a new form collabration with Şahin Aslan and his company İstanbul Maket, a 3D Architectural Model Company and named AVI Labs as a partner of İstanbul Maket. Together we created 3D Architectural models, design prototypes and automotion system including remote home control systems.
You can check our projects from İstanbul Maket web site (http://www.istanbulmaket.com.tr) and our youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/istanbulmaket?feature=watch).
The team's key personels are Ahmet Vural, Şahin Aslan, Abdulkadir Ozbey and Naime Ozbey Vural.
Together we created and accomplish a succesful, non-profit Kickstarter campaign (www.mibokit.com ). And now we're really excited about this new project of ours.
Risks and challenges
Engineering and Manufacturing
We have some great experiences from our first successful campaign, now our team knows how hard to take a product all the way through the complete development cycle. But we now know what to do and what to not. We know about priorities. Our mistakes will guide us this time with our project.
Manufacturing a product is difficult. You can definitely believe that we learned this from a very hard way. Many Kickstarter projects run into problems securing suppliers and manufacturing services. Thankfully, we passed these ways before but there is always the possibility that our manufacturing process could hit a road bump or two and cause us to miss our anticipated shipping date.
We’ve created the industrial design for ACp and engineered and tested functional prototypes. Although minor changes has to do with body components and design for manufacturability, there is always the chance that this can slightly change the look of the product. We are confident that if we reach our Kickstarter goal, we’ll have sufficient funds to finance tooling and production costs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
