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.

About

Quickly charge and sync all of your Apple devices simultaneously with iMate (plug in as many as you want -- you’ll have more ports than you’ll ever need!). Say goodbye to a lack of outlets or time to charge your electronics, and say hello to the new way to plug, charge, and sync all your favorite tech gadgets.

iMate is the only docking station with two USB-C PD fast charge ports that allow you to charge and sync up to six devices simultaneously.

Not enough charging ports has officially become a thing of the past.

iMate is designed to work with all Apple products, including your Apple Watch. Just plug in, charge, and relax. iMate will take over from there.

iMate is the perfect solution for all of your data storage needs. Never stress about downloading photos or videos again, as iMate streamlines the process by providing everything you need. With iMate, you can sync everything at once; there’s no need to transfer your songs or data over and over again. Just sync and go! 

iMate is the perfect accessory for flawlessly transferring data from one device to another. You can now transfer data to multiple devices, simultaneously, in a blink of an eye.

iMate has HDMI 4K Ultra display technology, which means you can connect your MacBook to your TV through the HDMI port and watch your favorite shows and movies with magnificent quality and color. Never has HD looked so clear as it will when you use iMate.

iMate is the quintessential traveling companion. Its compact size makes it able to fit in virtually any bag or purse, without having to compromise space for your other belongings. Whether you are going to and from work, or traveling overseas, iMate is the perfect way to charge and sync your devices while you’re on the go.

As one of the first consumer electronics companies to design Power Delivery (PD) devices and carry Type-C accessories, we created iMate with the purpose of making the lives of MacBook and MacBook Pro users easier and hassle-free.

Dongles, cables, and hubs aside, as Apple owners ourselves, the concept of "less is more" drove us to refine our ideas and techniques to finally craft our vision into reality.

iMate fits your MacBook and MacBook Pro just like a natural extension, thoughtfully matched in color and aesthetics.

Grenoplus is established with its R&D department in Senzhen, China, and supported by its Marketing and Design counterparts in Malaysia. With a team of 20 members, Grenoplus is focused on delivering quality power-source related products. This includes manufacturing and distributing high quality, premium accessories such as power banks, handset cables and more to the list. With this expertise in hand, the team has invented iMate, a revolutionizing power for Apple devices, designed to quickly charge and sync all your Apple devices simultaneously. iMate also allows fast data transfer, HDMI 4K Ultra display technology and convenient for your everyday use with its compact size.

We have a highly qualified team of engineers and have partnered with leading manufacturing and fulfillment companies. We just need your help to bring everything to fruition. Don’t worry, we’re completely prepared to bring iMate to you, and we have the power to make it happen, but if anything comes up along the way, you’ll be the first to know.
