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.

Meet the PocketPower

When you're outdoors , in the jungle, on the mountains, wherever , and the battery of your phone is dead. Same for your powerbank. And you desperately want to use the GPS function of your smart phone... But you can't. Because there`s no power. How to prevent that from happening? PocketPower can help you out. 

Thanks to the support of Kickstarter backers, our last campaign Powerleaf was successfully funded. This time the PocketPower is a ultra portable solar charger, which can be folded and easily fit into your pocket . 

Lillian and her friend David introducing PocketPower in Rocky Mountains.  No worries about charging under low temperature, the PocketPower`s operation temperature is -20℃~70℃.

Thank YOU

Thank you Powerleaf backers, your support encourages us to continuously make high quality solar gadgets.

Thank you John, Qxd, Charie  for deisigning such a cool solar charger and always improving product technology

Thank you Lillian, Ellie, Joyce, Song, Susan, Nana ,XP `s help in taking videos and pictures.

In this sunny winter day, we present PocketPower solar charger to you , hope you love it and will have a happy charging time! :)

 

Risks and challenges

We understand there might be unforeseen issues even for the best laid plan, however, samples of PocketPower have been made, tested, and put into some real life situations to use. They perform very well. Also in November PocketPower passed CE RoHS FCC tests.

Our biggest challenge will be international delivery because different countries have different policies. Some unexpected components shortage can happen. In that case, we will try our best to solve the problem. However, PocketPower is our second kickstarter campaign. We have successfully delivered Powerleaf solar chargers to backers , so this time shipping will be easier.

Please also feel free to let us know your concerns, we look forward to hearing from the Kickstarter community. Thank you!
