Imagine the amount of gadgets that exists in our daily life: 

Smartphone that you are constantly checking on, power banks in your bag, cameras you bring along on your vacation and laptops to work on the go – Now go have look and tell yourself how much cables or dongles you have with you?

Every day, power users tote along the assortment of power adaptors, batteries as well as cables, and each of these accessories have its own charging interface different from each other. Likewise, once the smartphone runs out of battery, they are nothing but a pricey dead brick.

What if you could just bring 1 cable that is capable of charging all your gadgets? 

The design of Chimera 5-in-1 USB Cable is simple yet doesn't mean you get less.

 Attached to one end are 

  • Lightning
  • USB-C
  • Micro USB

On the other end 

  • USB-C
  • USB-A

Equipped with all the essentials charging interface and the latest USB-C interface to future-proof it for the next 3 years.

When you head out or go on a vacation, this cable is a life-saver by allowing your luggage to be more organised as you can leave all your other cables and adaptors at home.

 Why kill two birds with one stone when you can kill five with our cable? 😎

What else? Just Charging?

NO! It can do much more!

USB-C is dubbed as "USB standard of the Future" meaning that it will become a commonly used interface in the future. It is currently implemented in latest gadgets such as Apple's Mac book, Samsung's Galaxy Smartphone, Google's Chromebook, Sony's Headphone, GoPro and more

At Futurizta, our mission is to create futuristic gadgets to "Futurize your life" which we promise will make your life easier - Just like our Chimera Cable.  It is future-proof by having USB-C and USB C-A Adaptor on the other end, which unlocks unlimited possibilities and functions.

Wait? There's more? 

EXTREME DURABILITY!

A cable that doesn't last and withstand everyday wear and tear is useless no matter how many functions it has. 

We understand the frustration of constantly having to replace broken cables and we've engineered our cable to be 

  • Extremely Durable
  • Break-resistant 
  • Tangle-free

This is done by combining Military Grade Nylon and Aluminium Reinforced Connector with up to 5000+ bending lifespan

Unlike the thick and stiff "Durable" cable currently on the market, we've engineered and conducted countless experiments to find the perfect balance between softness and durability. Our cable is light and flexible for easy bending and storing yet still strong enough to endure the everyday wear and tear! 

In case of any defects, we got you covered with our hassle-free 12 months warranty!

Thanks to your amazing support and voices, we have decided to give our backers what you wanted, thats it..Stretch Goals!!! We are proud and delighted to introduce to you three different variants created based on your requests and suggestions.

Stretch Goal for $15,000 - 3M/10ft Chimera Cable (Nyx Variant)

Just as versatile and three times the length to suit your needs!!!


Stretch Goal for $20,000- 15cm/0.5ft Chimera Cable ( Atron Variant)

Versatile, Small form factor, Fast Charge Atron Variant designed for heavy Power-bank users!


Stretch Goal for $30,000 - 1m Quick Charge Chimera Project Zues Variant Cable!!!

This version is engineered with an upgraded and more powerful USB C-C as the main cable which offers the capability of 5V/3A, 9V/2A POWER DELIVERY

STAY TUNED FOR MORE UPDATES!!!

What's Next?

After months of testing and quality control tests, we've chosen a manufacturer that produces the best cable quality that meets all our requirements and standards. 

When our fundraising goal is met, we will immediately begin mass production so you will be able to get our Chimera Cable as soon as possible. The fund raised will go towards mold creation, materials, production, packaging and shipping.

With years of E-Commerce experience, we are confident to deliver the product on time with the help of top-tier fulfilment company.

We would love for you to be a part of this campaign and family. What we need now is your support to kick start this project. With your help, we will be able to introduce this all-in-one cable to the world and pursue our dream of making your life easier!

All pledges are welcomed and much appreciated!   


Chimera Cable's Design Idea

Our first draft is very simple and straightforward, it consists of all the essential connectors - Lightning, Micro-USB, USB-C and USB-C and USB C-A adaptor on the other end.  Everything looks good,right? Unfortunately first drafts usually never works as expected, it consists of a major design flaw - Inappropriate placement of the adaptor. The adaptor is unable to fit in the Micro-USB due to the wrong orientation of the mold. Moreover, the placement of the USB-A adaptor is also not convenient for easy plug/unplug.

Our second draft utilized an innovative Lightning + Micro USB  2-in-1 interface, which could effectively reduce the number of attached units. But this idea is quickly rejected when we conducted research on the durability and reliability of this "Lightning + Micro-USB " interface. It is proven to be very unreliable due to the structure of this 2-in-1 interface, it cannot stay in the phone as firmly as the original Lightning/ Micro-USB. Despite being innovative and elegant, the inability to perform reliably is the major reason we rejected this design. 

Our final draft is an improvised version of our first design. 

We designed the adaptor to have the perfect length and position to fit into the Micro-USB correctly. We also made some adjustment on the position of the USB-A adaptor, which now enables easy unplug/plug.

Why not make it magnetic?

We're well aware of the magnetic cable on the market right now. The reason we chose not to use this approach is because 

  • Magnetic cables require a tip to be placed in the charging port permanently. This is only convenient for charging but not for other purposes. Smartphone companies are slowly removing headphone jacks and instead use the charging port as audio output, the tips will cause inconvenience as users need to remove the charging tip every time they want to listen  to music through a wired earphone.
  • As the charging tip is placed permanently in the devices for convenience, users are required to purchase multiple tips for their devices, which can be costly and annoying.
  • It is hard to share your magnetic charging cable with your friend who doesn't have the charging tip, which is also inconvenient in a way.

Why not make it with 3 individual charging interfaces? 

  • We designed the Chimera Cable with one thing in mind - To be convenient and perfect On-The-Go. Cable with 3 individual charging interfaces contains too many loose ends, which can cause inconvenient while you only charge 1 device and leave the other 2 hanging around.
  • USB cable with 3 individual charging interface cannot support fast charging at the same time as the power is distributed evenly across multiple devices, which eliminates the purpose of fast charging on-the-go.

Prototype

We have very high standards on our designs, to ensure that our cable is able to withstand everyday wear and tear. We've conducted a series of experiment and quality control tests to our prototype cable and material to find the best material out there.

Testing the prototype's charging performance and stability
Testing the prototype's charging performance and stability

The picture above is the prototype of our adaptor. It has a PVC outer layer which is extremely strong and abrasion resistance.

Tested to be extremely durable.

Aluminium Reinforced Connector
Aluminium Reinforced Connector

The internal of the connector is reinforced with Aluminium to provides extra strength and improved durability. 

We've also tested multiple different wires types such as plastic wire, metal wire and nylon wire.  We performed some experiment and rate their performance on bending, twisting, strength, tangle-resistance, and weight. 

Our experiment results show that Nylon wire is the best material as it is light, tangle-resistance, strong and easy to bend - Which satisfy all standard of a portable and durable cable. 

Our selected Nylon wire has a perfect balance - Thick enough to withstand external force yet still flexible for bending and storing.

Manufacturer

To ensure the cable quality is top-notch,  we've selected a manufacturer in China with 15 years of production experience. Their factory is equipped with 40 high efficient production lines and advanced machines with more than 500 workers, which ensures a large production capability. 

Besides that, they also passed the ISO9001 international quality system approval in 2010.  Their production quality and reputation is so good that they even get invited to the popular technology exhibition like CES.IFA and global sources. 

With these qualifications and experience, we are confident that this manufacturer is able to produce and deliver our product on time!

Risks and challenges

Our current goal is only enough for us to kickstart production for our 1 meter/3 ft Chimera Cable and deliver them to you, we will need more funding to expand the product variation such as different length and colours.

In case of any manufacturing hiccups encountered along the journey, we promise to deal with it in full transparency, and you as our supporters will always be informed of our progress.

If we meet our fundraising goal, We're confident to deliver the product on time with the help of top-tier fulfilment centre. However, one of the challenges that we may face is custom delays and import duties - something out of our control. But we promise we will do our very best to minimise the chance of delay and make sure the product is delivered on time.
