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.

If your smartphone and battery pack is only "almost always safe", it is not good enough!

What do we do?

EXPLOSHIELD makes phone case and battery case using the US$27,811bomb suit and US$12 million space suit material so that you are always protected. 

What is EXPLOSHIELD ABS?

EXPLOSHIELD ABS is a phone case, a battery case made with real-life space suit and bomb suit bullet proof material. In case of phone or battery explosion, the strong material - Kevlar® and Nomex® (5 times stronger than steel) will protect you from explosion and fire. We do not wear a bomb suit so put it on something that would explode. EXPLOSHIELD ABS comes with a life-time explosion warranty.

Three Layers of space suit fiber (All SGS Fireproof Certified)

1. Outer Layer – Water repellent, cut and scratch resistant

2. Middle Layer – Fireproof shock absorption material

3. Inner Layer – Soft touch for your delicate device and 2 card pockets for you everyday convenience. 

Why we have this idea?

We charge our phone and other electrical devices on the go especially when we are travelling and the phone and battery heats up quickly and we feel like the battery is going to explode soon and it is worrying...

We put the power bank and the phone inside a designer handbag or a designer duffle bag and it could cost us thousands of dollars.

EXPLOSHIELD ABS is our insurance when our smartphone and lithium power bank fails us. You might not understand the risk now but when tragedy happens, EXPLOSHIELD ABS is surely the one thing you wish you have had.

Better Be Safe Than Sorry!

Who manufactured your portable battery and power bank??

Let's face it, no manufacturer, not Apple, not Samsung, no one can guarantee their smartphones or lithium batteries would not explode, so there is always a risk of explosion.

How old is your battery pack or power bank?

Battery pack and power bank deteriorate at an increasing rate after one year, in other words, if you had battery pack for over a year, the risk of it exploding is increasing everyday.

WHAT IS THE LIFETIME OF A POWER BANK? About 200 charge cycles

Lithium-ion, including lithium-polymer batteries used in Power Banks and smartphones eventually lose their capacity over time (typically between 200 up to 1000 cycles depending on the battery cell quality and chemical composition). http://www.tespack.com/7-facts-dont-know-power-banks/

Putting a case on the battery pack will cause explosion? NO!!

Power banks should have heat-sensitive and temperature control mechanism to ensure Li-ion batteries operate within a safe range. Therefore if it is hot, it should shut down. If the Li-ion battery pack is overheated and the heat-sensitive and temperature control mechanism fails, battery explodes and this is exactly when you need our protection.

Battery and phone explosion is not history, it is happening everyday!

    b. Middle Layer – Don’t get surprised! Shock absorption 

    c. Inner Layer – Soft touch for your delicate device 

2) The Air Shield Zipper 

    a. This is a Special Design Zipper to reduce air flowing into the EXPLOSHIELD ABS in case of an explosion. No Oxygen, No Fire!

Step 5 Kickstarter => Begin Manufacturing => Delivery 

The production prototype is for iPhone 7 Plus and Galaxy S8+ (because a bigger case can fit a smaller phone but a smaller case just cannot fit a bigger phone)

Shipping

Estimated delivery time: 1-2 weeks after dispatch.

EXPLOSHIELD ABS comes with a life-time explosion warranty, which means if your battery exploded and damaged the case, send us the information and proof and we will send you a new one. 

Risks and challenges

It was a challenge to find (sourcing and lab testing) the right materials (Kevlar and Nomex is not something you can walk into a shop and buy). Fortunately with our industry knowledge and experiences, we finally found the right composition and obtained the SGS Flammability test of clothing textile16 CFR 1610 on 31st May, 2017.

After 9 months of brainstorming ideas (talking the talk) to sourcing materials, lab testing, designing and redesigning and manufacturing (walking the walk) we have completed the working prototype!

We have spent the last 9 months communicating with our supplies and manufacturers to ensure delivery and production goes smoothly once the Kickstarter fundraiser is completed.

With our 12 years of experience in the industry and 9 months of experience working on this project, we can and we will solve any issues quickly and efficiently as we have always done.
