John - I'm sorry to hear you are having issues. Please take a look at http://www.fusechicken.com/pages/support and see if those tips help you. if not, feel free to contact me with the form at the bottom of that page.
It's garbage. Pure garbage. It won't stay up and the connector feels wobbly. Wish you could get refunds on here. Waited forever to find out it doesn't work right. Last time I back something like this.
Thanks Greg! and Matt, You're welcome.
Received my 2 Bobines today! One petite and one 'standard'. Love em! Great job on execution- plug grips feel great and the "snake" part bends quite smoothly. Congratulations on completing a great product. Well done.
Ordered, thanks Jon, you rock!
Shahrouz - You can search with http://www.twinitor.com/ without having a twitter account.
Matt - kickstarter25 - available on all orders through fusechicken.com - valid through Friday.

Hi Jon, love my iPhone one, but I work with other products that require micro USB. So now that I have my two iPhone Bobines, looking to order a microUSB one, is there still a discount for us kickstarters?
Shahrouz - If you search Twitter for Une Bobine or FuseChicken, you'll find some great posts and pics from backers who have received them.
Ah mixed reviews! now im excited to get mine. I was feeling a bit wary about getting mine . but im sure it will do what i want it to :)
Thanks Matt and Lyan!
Got it and love it! Awesome!
Just received mine! and yes.. lovin' it ;)
I've made a video showing how well it should hold: http://www.youtube.com/watch…
Said Tahsin Dane - It isn't plugging in to the Nexus all the way, which explains the lack of holding and not connecting to the computer. I've sent you a direct email to resolve this.
And one more thing. I have 2 phones. Atrix is working but when I connect my galaxy nexus my computer dont even recognize it. Bullshit.
Are you kidding? Chine made 1$ cable of mine is better then this. It holds the phone better. The pins behind the microusb cable is missing. It does not hold the phone when it flipped.
You can see the video below:
Akshay - Send me a message through our website contact form at www.fusechicken.com with your full shipping information and I'll see if I can track down the package.
Just wondering, based on the shipment notifications, my bobine has been in OH for 7 days now. I'm just really anxious to begin making my iPhone more useful. Does anyone know how much longer it might take?
Hanske - i'll see if I can arrange that :) 40 Belgians.
Wooohooo I'm still in the running for a "Une Bobine" shipment :-p Can I be the last package sent :-D (I do want proof of course) Btw How many Belgians invested in this project?
Kai - I'm actually working on a bunch of the 6 Bobine shipments today.
As a backer of 6 Une Bobine units, I guess I will be in the last 5-10% of shipments. Sigh. :(
Thanks Brian! We're glad you like it!
I got mine!!! It is nice =)
Friday Shipping update: 1200 packages went out today with 2000 Bobines! Rewards are shipped for over 75% of backers.
- Arnold, I'll try to get a video of an iPod touch with it. My kids both have Une Bobines in their rooms for their touches and they work really well. One thing that helps overcome the rounded back is that the weight is so much less.
Thanks everyone for the comments.
Can't wait to receive mine. Just got the shipping notification today...
As a note for those people going out with the masses and buying an iPhone 5, Apple already has an adaptor for the 30 pin to Lightning so your older connection devices will still work. I'm sure this may be an alternative for all the people complaining. I don't plan on upgrading anytime soon.
Keep up the great work guys!!!!
Would it be better if the video is also shown when the Une Bobine is pluged in to an iPod (with its curvy back) and/or old iPhone (with its port little bit worn)..
Hey Fuse Chicken,
I have backed a couple products on Kickstarter and have to say you guys are killing it with your project and communication. I am really impressed and I am looking forward to seeing the product soon.
I will wait to see your next project. ^_^
Got my Bobine yesterday. Great product! I did notice a HUGE amount of "wobble" in the plug on my iPhone 4. I'd have to say there is at least a 1/32" of play. It worries me a little but it's not a huge deal. Don't want to see the dock connector snap off inside the phone. The cable is plenty stiff enough to hold the phone a good 18" above my Mac. Kinda funny lookin', but great angle for video chats and stuff. Again...excellent product and I'm proud to be a backer! :)
