UMO: World’s Most Beautiful Modular 10W Qi Wireless Charger

What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Created by Thingyfy, a world famous industry 4.0 company – UMO is designed to be a minimalist, smart and durable, yet affordable charging system for Apple and Android users who care about details and quality.

UMO has faster Qi charging capabilities (10W) than the soon to be released $199 Apple 7.5W AirPower.  

    

With more and more Qi compatible devices on the market, we see a gap in the wireless charging market that not only offers the latest 10W Qi fast-charging technology, but also looks amazing, and is built with the highest quality and precision, and costs less.

That's why we created UMO — the most minimalist modular 10W Qi wireless fast charger, completed with a matching Apple Watch charger holder and a buttonless Qi wireless lamp.

We see a gap in the wireless charging market that not only offers the latest 10W Qi fast-charging technology, but also looks amazing, and is built with the highest quality and precision, and costs less than US$35.

That's why we created UMO — the most minimalist modular 10W Qi wireless fast charger, completed with a matching Apple Watch charger holder and a buttonless Qi wireless lamp.   

Using the highest quality (AAA grade) independent coil, and the latest Qi certified chipsets, UMO offers the most reliable wireless charging experience.


With the full aluminum body, UMO has excellent heat dissipation properties, allowing continuous fast charge without overheating.

Even though a reguler wired charger turns off the juice when your phone reaches 100%, with just a few percent drop, the charger will continue to top off the charge during the night, says Bradshaw. Such a “trickle charge” attempts to keep it at 100% to compensate for the small bit of charge that your phone just naturally loses on its own. So your phone is constantly being bounced between a full charge and a bit below a full charge. These trickle charges can lead to higher ambient temperatures for your phone, which can reduce capacity over time. (Source: Time Magazine)

With UMO's itellegent power management chipset, this constant “trickle charge” is greatly reduced. Also, since Lithium-ion batteries have significantly longer lifespans when they are recharged mid-drain (50%) as opposed to full-drain (0%), UMO also helps significantly improve your overall battery health by allowing you to top up your phone more frequently before the battery goes below 50%.

From the two time creator of Pinhole Pro and Pinhole Pro S, our team at Thingyfy has a proven record of not only delivering the best designs with the highest quality and precision but also exceptional backer care. Creating honest things is our passion.   

Risks and challenges

Our team has years of proven experience in designing and delivering amazing products. Our most recent success was launching and delivering of the original Pinhole Pro and the Pinhole Pro S. We plan to do the same for UMO. With the same gratitude and even more passion, we want to give you our promise:

Guaranteed shipping or your money back.

We take pride in being open to our backers and have a history of being transparent. We understand that regular communication is a key, whether things are going great, or not so well. We also love this work, and we'll do our best to make this process educational and entertaining for you as well. So in addition to keeping you up to date on general progress, we will also strive to give you an in-depth look at the process of refining and delivering fantastic products.
