About

It’s always been about what defines us. Being never satisfied with what’s out there. Describes our vision what everyday flashlight should be. Our passion . Creating an experience. Make it personal.

 All for you. We want you to be a part of it and follow our journey of creation of something special.  

 Proprietary magnetic slider enables button-less powering of extremely efficient LED chips that delivers 250 lumens of intense light powered by high capacity 14500 rechargeable batteries.

 Strong magnets located on a top and bottom of the slider securely locks it into desired place. Smooth, soft to touch finish gives you a true feel of craftsmanship and expensive materials.  

 Crystal clear lenses complements precisely machined stainless steel rails and anodized aluminum body.

High quality rubber seals allows water and dust resistance. 

Designed here in Chicago with the mindset of an engineer and heart of a designer.

My name is Viktor. I'm a mechanical engineer and  I have a passion for designing solutions to problems we come across in daily life. 

I have previously launched several campaigns and delivered rewards to all of them on time. You can check out the comments sections for positive reviews. 

In order to make Fonarik a reality I have to have a minimum order for parts so the price stays reasonable.

So go ahead and pick your reward now.

And please share this project to your friends ,a couple seconds of your time could make a huge difference for this project. And you will help my dream to become a reality.

Risks and challenges

We're working with manufacturers to improve the design and optimize the manufacturability of the Fonarik. As with any physical product, the risks include manufacturing and delivery issues. We've made numerous production-quality prototypes, to ensure there are no surprises in manufacturability or quality. We've tiered the delivery of the Fonarik to reduce the chances of being overwhelmed, no matter how many units are sold.

We have fully functional prototypes however there are might be some slight changes in a design of some parts to improve it's usability.

We've also identified different manufacturers and processes that make sense at different manufactured quantities. We are also set up to deliver our units using a third party logistics company, with distribution warehouses across the world, who also help us handle tracking and customer issues.

We've been working on the Fonarik for a long time now. We wouldn't make this project public if we weren't confident we'd done our homework on all fronts. Although there can always be unanticipated issues, we believe we've done our best to prepare for every eventuality and commit to being transparent throughout the campaign and beyond.
