Can we make great things better for you? 

Nothing stays on for long, tomorrow can be different. The new iPhone7 has arrived, the new Apple Watch Series 2 as well. The iPad Pro has been recently introduced and requires a larger base. The variety of Apple Watch bands is growing, dimensions and weights as well. The magnetic charger has got certain limits to keep the weight of the watch in place. In particular for the popular nightstand mode, "tower" docking solutions for the Apple Watch are not  ideal anymore for all upcoming variations. So we put our heads together and came up with a future proof solution which gets rid of the cable chaos and organizes all your devices in one place. And we even included a unique and cool solution for our travelers 

Meet EVOLUS 3, the only dock you need, made exclusively for your Apple devices, including iPhone7 and Apple Watch Series 2

So here it is. EVOLUS 3. We redefined the classic W3 dock ( you guys might surely remember Michael`s Kickstarter success last year), taking all your wishes into the development approach, adding multiple and unique features to make it as much convenient for you to charge all your devices in one place...and in style. And it will work as well with the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and the Apple Watch Series 2. 

EVOLUS 3 is modular built and offers the flexibility to be upgraded with new modules if ever needed.  And there is an extra external 2.4A USB port for charging many things, like the new wireless Airpods. 

 

 

 

 

 A very cool feature is the dock in dock solution. Need to travel? Just take the Apple Watch module with you. You can even install your genuine lightning cable and use it as a duo dock.

Leave your cases on. Watch the possibilities with the 12.9 iPad Pro, as an example 

 

 

EVOLUS series standard features

  • Large base, more space in-between devices, making docking more convenient 
  • iPad Pro compatible - even takes the large 12,9" with the keyboard case on
  • Works with all iPhones 5, 6 and 7 series, all iPad`s with lightning adapter, Air, Mini und Pro, all Apple Watch models, including the new Apple Watch Series 2 
  • Integrated intelligent charger, provides sufficient power to your devices,  in total 3x 2.4A and 1x 1.5A  
  • External USB slot (2.4A output) to charge an extra device, power bank, headphone or your partner's phone 
  • Only one cable coming out of the unit, no other visible cables, clean and minimal design
  • MFI Lightning Adapters included 
  • Night Stand and Touch4Time mode
  • Convenient new adapter height adjustment - just turn the wheel and leave your cases on 
  • Easy one-hand operation, supported by micro suction tape at bottom
  • Easy adaption of your Apple Watch charging cable (not included) from top - no need to disassemble or move the whole base
  • The best for our traveller's, you can take the complete Apple Watch module with you - a very unique feature. Virtually, you got an additional dock within the dock and you don't have to remove your charging cable. The EVOLUS Travel for the Apple Watch will even fit your genuine lightning cable which turns EVOLUS Travel into a Dual Dock 

 

EVOLUS Premium  The EVOLUS Premium option comes with fine leather applications (not available for EVOLUS MB)

The optional travel kit (included in the separate EVOLUS Travel) provides a travel case to protect your Apple Watch module and includes a 2.5A charger with two USB slots, plus  the most common plugs for global traveling. 

 

Check out some of the possibilities EVOLUS offers. No other docking station on the market has that

EVOLUS Art - A World  Premiere

When we were working on the new EVOLUS an idea came up to combine Art and Technology. Can we turn a docking station into a piece of art? Ambitious, got it. Well, we took some art images, printed and laser cut them out and voila, EVOLUS Art was born. The whole team got so excited.We showed it around and got many wows and cools, convincing us to move further. Long story short, we teamed up with an ambitious artist who really liked the idea and we implemented two paintings of his great work and we created the world's very first Art Edition docking station

Any questions left? :)

During the creation of EVOLUS we considered many ideas and build a couple of prototypes 

 

The Pledges

Get on board now and support us here. We got some cool stuff for you and really great prices. Shipping within the US, Europe included! Since this project is running from Europe, Kickstarter is pre-set for the EURO.  We are showing US $ prices as well, based on today`s conversion rate which has been quite stable for the last months.

VAT: Only for backers living within the European Union, we are required to charge additional 19% sales tax - Sorry!  This is added at checkout as "shipping fee". Direct shipping from the US, Europe, and Australia

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where the money goes and Christmas problems solved

All ready to go for production, the funds here will be used for final tooling and material purchase. We work with excellent and experienced suppliers. Delivery starting in November is absolutely realistic and we guarantee you to get your EVOLUS  definitely before Christmas (btw. makes a cool present, especially for whose where it is hard to figure out what to give) 

 

 

The Team 

The Enblue team in Germany is experienced in handling large amounts of products and doing logistics all over the world. Enblue has a proven experience in manufacturing and we got logistics in place as well. Our US logistics is based in Jacksonville, FL and has handled shipments for years

What others say

Well, we are starting to promote EVOLUS and so far we got great feedback from those we showed it to

 Michael, Sales Executive at a Mercedes dealership: 

"Wow. Noblest...!!!!"

 Andrew Moreno, The Tech Spy.Net:

"I received the designs and have to say the W3 2017 is awesome. What a great update to your existing dock. Quite frequently we say people's follow up products as not being very good but you certainly have put that to bed.   I love the fact you still keep all three products together but incorporate the side USB and the removable Apple Watch dock which I especially would use"

Shipping globally

Our European backers will get their  shipped out of Europe, no customs or further VAT issues. Our US backers will have their units shipped direct from the US, Aussies shipped directly from Down Under :). 

This Kickstarter will be organized, handled and processed by Enblue Technology GmbH of Germany 

We just got our hands on these mock-ups. And we needed to try them on EVOLUS. Do you think this will be what we think it will be:)?

 

 

Risks and challenges

We know what it takes to deliver on schedule. The experience in design, engineering, and manufacturing for over 30 years provides a good base to handle this project, even dealing with unexpected problems.

Our working prototypes are the results from months of development and testing and we are ready to move into serial production. We got most of the tooling in place and selected reliable suppliers. This campaign has been funded early, we were able to start further production preparation directly after that

However, there is always a risk of potential delays in tooling and schedules for materials and shipping.
These risks can never be eliminated at 100%, even if we feel we got all issues covered. We planned this project same as others, But due to our very flexible production processes, we don't see here any serious obstacles we can't handle in time.

We understand that given the opportunity to be here on Kickstarter and to get support within the community is also an obligation and we will update you frequently as well as we always will appreciate any input on the project as well.
