Frequently Asked Questions
Want to add an extra item to your reward? Simple. Here's how:
1. If you’ve already pledged to this project, click the “Manage My Pledge” button at the top of the page. If not, click “Back this project” and pick one of the rewards. Every backer can pick one and only one reward level.
2. Look at the Add-On Menu in the project description. Find the item(s) you want to add. Increase your reward by the corresponding pound amount. You do not need to add any extra money for shipping beyond the shipping surcharge that is part of your reward.
3. That’s it, you’re done for now. No need to do anything else until after the project ends on September 21st.
In the weeks following Sept. 21st we will send every backer a survey. In that survey you will tell us which specific items you want to add on to your reward. You will also have the chance to add Blind Spot products to your reward that are not in the Add-On Menu (see the next FAQ). You will give us your shipping details at that time.

1. During this project, you don’t do anything. Just pick your reward, that’s it.
2. A week or two after our funding period ends (Sept. 21) we’ll send you a survey to collect shipping information. As part of that survey, you’ll be able to add on additional Blind Spot items you want and pay us the extra amount right then and there.
3. When we ship your reward, those extra items you’ve selected will also be sent to the same address.
4.Why did we not include all of our products in the Add-On Menu? We wanted to make it a less confusing experience for folks. But, you’ll still be able to get all the benefit of adding additional items to your Kickstarter reward once you are sent your Backerkit survey after campaign.
5. Will we give a special discount for items not on the Add-On Menu? Yes, we will reward our backers with discounts on the rest of our product range.Last updated:

Yes. Unfortunately working out this out would be too complicated to calculate individually on Kickstarter but due to the high and varying costs of sending batteries to different parts of the world an additional shipping charge will be added when you are sent your backerkit survey.
Please note this does not apply to rewards that come with batteries included, only when additional batteries are chosen as add-onsLast updated:
A N-PF 550 Sony L series has 2 internal cells, a N-PF 770 has 4 cells and is therefore 2x the capacity of a NP-F 550/ and the N-PF 970 6 cells, giving it 3x the capacity of a NP-F 550Last updated:
The DC barrel may be used while the battery is charging but the USB output will be disabledLast updated:
We will aim to meet the targets set out but we cannot guarantee there will not be issues along the journey. For the duration of our funding period we will be putting final tweaks on our manufacturing, assembly and QA processes. Once those things are set, we’ll begin making production runs. This is our 5th project and we are confident we can deliver on our promises.Last updated:
All Blind Spot products come with a one year warranty and The Power Junkie will be no different! This mean that should there be an issue with the manufacturing of your Power Junkie, such as an electric fault we will issue a replacement. Please note this does not cover structural or physical damage caused by misuse.Last updated:
Simply put an NP-F battery has more uses, for anyone in the film/photography industry it is likely you already have many of these batteries, why spend additional money on power packs when you can simply use the batteries you already have! They’re also able to charge faster and are easily swappable.Last updated:
Our NP-F 550 should charge to 80% in around 80 minutes and 100% in 2 hours on a high current USB plug.Last updated:
If your device can charge over USB, the Power Junkie will be able to charge it.Last updated:
