Poseidon: The Rugged & Waterproof Portable Charger and Light

$97,741

Poseidon is the ultimate source for mobile power for your USB devices with unparalleled capacity and durability. It was designed with our patented technology, which protects the Poseidon from liquid and corrosion for the most rugged lifestyle. 

It has the maximum rating on the IP standard, IP68, making it both dustproof and waterproof and with a military-grade standard of MIL-STD 810G, Poseidon’s shockproof ability gives you the freedom to go further. Poseidon stores 8000 mAh of power which is equivalent to about 7 days of charge.

While we don't recommend trying this yourself, we decided to test out the Poseidon's capabilities ourselves. Want to see how it handled a shotgun blast from 35 feet away?

    

Poseidon can charge virtually all devices via USB. Here is a sample list of devices and how many charges you can get - CLICK HERE

                                                                     

The Poseidon features a dual-USB output system that enables you to rapidly charge two devices at once with the same charging speed as an outlet. This means quick charges on the go for all your USB-enabled devices, from the smallest smartphone to the largest tablet.

Packed with 8000 mAh of power, the Poseidon is able to charge an average smartphone 3-5 times to full capacity. At 5.74" high, 3.19" wide and just .51" thick, the Poseidon can easily slip into your back pocket. The Poseidon will also never weigh you down, weighing only 8.43 ounces.

                                                                  

Drops onto hard surfaces can annihilate fragile electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets. Poseidon comes equipped with heavy-duty drop-resistant corners designed to absorb the concentrated stresses that corners face during a sharp impact.

The power of Poseidon is packed between two ultra-durable hybrid polymer armor casings. These armored sections are custom designed for maximum durability and minimal size and weight.

Poseidon leaves no edge vulnerable with its original “360° Edge Protection Guard.” The perimeter is made of a high-grade thermoplastic elastomer which protects every edge from anything life may throw at it. This edge guard also doubles as a comfortable rubberlike gripping surface that clings to your hand.

The ability to comfortably grip your personal device is a necessity. Poseidon’s armored casings are patterned with our proprietary .02" thick Diamondtech Anti-Slip Grip. Between its perimeter 360° Edge Protection Guard and its Diamondtech Anti-Slip Grip, rest assured that this device will stay put comfortably in your hand. 

Poseidon attains the maximum rating in the Ingress Protection (IP) standard by utilizing patented technologies both on the inside and the outside of the device. It is rated for complete underwater submersion for up to 4 feet and up to 45 minutes. The solid plastic port cover allows Poseidon to reach the maximum in the IP standard.

Our experience in creating compact portable chargers was proven in our past Kickstarter campaign, Dark Energy’s Reservoir, which reached funding at almost 200%. In the past year and a half, our company has matured and grown. We have learned from our weaknesses and fixed our failures. 

We have solidified our distribution and shipping, and are confident in those doing this work.

Here is a list of the countries where we have secured shipping to:

*PLEASE be aware that we do not have secured shipping in all other countries. If you have any questions regarding shipping please message us. 

Risks and challenges

Risks: From the beginning of the supply chain to the delivery process, unexpected events and accidents occur.

Solution: We have been testing our process for over a year now, we have put in place many back up plans and safety precautions that will prevent delays of any sort.

Challenge: Our top-tier engineering and design team has a high standard for the quality and functionality of the products we release. To attain this standard proved to be much more complicated than expected.

Solution: In order for our products to be perfect, we brought together a team of experts and professionals in the following industries: high-tech, engineering, industrial design, extreme sports, travel, outdoor sports.
