About

An Universal Device e-Butler - Once and for All Your needs

Monolith is the world’s first universal, smart electronics e-Butler,  built to help you – today’s connected consumer – power and manage the technology devices that support your on-the-go lifestyle. Unlike a standard charging dock, Monolith leverages the latest GaN technology and smart AI management to not only efficiently charge devices, but manage them based on your individual usage trends. 

Introducing Accessory-Free Life --The World's First True All-in-One Device Platform 

You can easily carry the Monolith anywhere and everywhere the day takes you: home, office, airport, hotel, meeting room, coffee shop, etc.  Monolith delivers all the charging power and charging steps that modern devices require, conveniently and efficiently in a compact, light and sleek package. Monolith integrates all power facilities for completing an entire charging cycle, including an extractable plug, a 3-foot-long hidden power cord and a GaN power core for completing power adaption from 110v~240v.

Monolith Firstly Integrates ALL Power Facilities in the Size of a Palm
Plug and Play Anywhere without Forgetting Anything

The Module system allows you switch your needs instantly, we create them to make your life accessories-free


Currently, we have developed 11 modules that can support over 300 different devices. We are seeking to release more modules next year to cover less-common electronics, including electronic shavers. The extra Type-C port on the left side of the Monolith allows you to interface with any USB-PD device, including your laptop.

Powered By GaN - The Newest and Most Advanced Power Technology Yet.

Advanced GaN technology offers incredible charging speed and improves charging efficiency by over 300%. GaN(Gallium nitride) is a third generation semi-conductor and has been massively used in radar systems. It allows the Monolith to generate immense power and perform outstanding heat efficiency from a device the size of your palm.

The Most Sophisticated Design Makes the Most Effective Platform Ever. 

A Standard Monolith Set is equivalent to the accessory group combined with a Wireless Set, a Laptop Charging Set, a Phone Charging Set, a 4-Slot Power Strip and a Tablet Charging Set. Monolith is THREE times lighter, FIVE times smaller than full sets. Its GaN and AI power management technology allows the total time efficiency to rocket to over NINE times faster than general power-management routines.  

The compact design allows Monolith fit in any general handbags, therefore there is no way to lose any of your accessories behind. 

Monolith Can Fit In Any General Handbags!

The secret behind all these advantages is that Monolith is created through RDE, a sophisticated design theory born in London that aims to deliver the most reasoning and compact design, and every single piece of technology is designed to deliver its tremendous efficiencies. 

There Are Over 600 Electronic Components, and 150 Solid Parts in ONE Monolith

Ever heard of a smart charging hub? Monolith has a central ARM system programmed with AI algorithms that offer users a customized experience, prioritizing charging based on usage patterns and your individual (and proudly unique) device suite. Over time, the AI algorithms recognize usage and determined the optimal way to charge.

By knowing which electronic devices you use most, Monolith focuses on delivering a quality, fast charge every time. Through intuitive controls, consumers can even set their own device priorities or optimize based on their daily plans, with or without the app.

Monolith is the first installment of the HEXCAL smart home set, which is integrated with voice control. Currently available in English, German, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese, Monolith greets consumers when they come home and updates them frequently with the charging state of devices, with a lighting system also reacting to the current charging state. The voice control can tell consumers the weather at your destination, play music, and have some basic conversations.

Monolith’s 11 modules are compatible with more than 300 types of electronic devices, including tablets, laptops, smart watches, speakers, headphones, digital readers, drones, and portable gaming consoles.

At HEXCAL, we have invested a lot of time and energy to design each of the modules for optimized charging. Take the Dock Lightning as an example; we designed a high-quality base adapter that’s completely different from the linear base on the market.

Unlike the stationary electric plugs currently on the market, we have created a design that can swing back and forth more than 20,000 times. For devices under 60W, the base can help them reach maximum charging power quickly.

You can easily carry the Monolith and bring it anywhere you go: home, office, airport, hotel, meeting room, coffee shop, etc. It’s especially a great space saver when you travel.

We care about the environment.

When you open the app, you can see how much electricity you saved yesterday.

The lifespan of the Monolith is 10-20 years. Monolith will also update its software, automatically, as needed. All you need to do is change the module base.

All modules are recyclable. You can mail the module back to our factory and receive a discount of 50% of the value of the original module. If you mail the DOCK LIGHTNING ($50) back to the factory, you can get a $25 discount on your next module purchase.



Perks

Rewards

If the pledge exceeds $1.5 million, every backer will receive a black 120W backboard for free.




We are HEXCAL. Creating innovative solutions to meet future demands has always been our objective. We spent three years developing Monolith and have managed to continually improve the product with enhanced functionality and optimized performance. Now, we’ve succeeded in combining the world’s best universal electronics e-butler and multi-device smart charging manager with a GaN core. We are expecting the Monolith to be mass produced next year.

Formed by a team of engineers, HEXCAL strives to narrow the gap between humans and the digital world. HEXCAL is here to help care for and manage your digital life. Our team will continue to innovate and bring upgraded products to our users, and welcome all our connected consumers as companions along the way.

“After three years developing Monolith, the HEXCAL team is incredibly proud to launch our first product through a Kickstarter campaign, Technology devices are becoming an increasingly vital part of each individuals work, personal and family lives, and we developed Monolith with their needs in mind. Forget the burden of charging and worrying about whether devices will be ready when you need them – let Monolith take care of this for you and get back to living a productive, enjoyable life.”

Risks and challenges

No one wants to see a good idea executed poorly. We have worked extremely hard to ready this product for Kickstarter and full-scale manufacturing and fulfillment, but here are what I see as the risks:

MANUFACTURING: Creating the tooling to manufacture a product of this size is expensive and requires expert knowledge to get it right. There is typically a 60-day lead time to create the molds for a product of this size, and this is where delays could occur. To minimize that possibility, we're working with tooling manufacturer partners with a track record for promptness and quality.

PRODUCT ADJUSTMENTS: As the MONOLITH gets geared up for production, there will likely be some minor adjustments to improve the final product. Pre-production prototypes are made to test and refine the product. These will always be for the benefit of you, our e-Butler’s Master.

FULFILLMENT: Sometimes things go awry that can’t be planned for: a supplier misses a deadline, a machine breaks down, or a shipment gets lost. Those things could cause a delay. To minimize the possibility of manufacturing setbacks, we will enter the manufacturing stage with at least one back-up supplier for each component pre-located, and my product commercialization experts will help ensure smooth sailing from our suppliers and factories.

We will be working with manufacturers who have years of experience delivering excellent products in tremendous quantities. There will no doubt be some surprises along the road, but any obstacle will be addressed by combining our internal knowledge with external expertise. Our overall goal is to make the best possible product for you, our e-Butler’s Master.

Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us make the coolest idea into a MONOLITH product by clicking the “Back This Project” button at the top of the page, or by helping us spread the word by sharing our page.

We are happy and honored to have you along the way. Thank you!
