Thanks to your overwhelming support, this project: 

  • Was fully funded in under 1 hour from launch;
  • Went on to surpass its funding goal by 1100%, raising over $1.1 million;
  • Met the $1M stretch goal of a FREE USB-C extension cable.

As an added bonus to you (our wonderful Kickstarter backer) we will also be throwing in for FREE a Kickstarter exclusive carry case that holds the HyperDrive, the USB-C extension cable, plus a FREE additional grip that supports iPad Pro that has a tempered glass screen protector applied and a tool to remove the grip.

The above items are pre-production prototypes and hence look a little rough around the edges.

Our target is to ship out all of the Kickstarter rewards this month (we have sufficient components) before the factory breaks for Chinese New Year in early February.

You will be getting a survey to confirm your shipping address and HyperDrive color around January 28. Once we get your completed survey, your reward will be dispatched ASAP.

Stay tuned for more updates.

Cheers!

      Now 1/3/18 in Australia. No word. No delivery. No product. Got a comment on when I can expect it? Seems like ASAP is getting a little long in the tooth..

      I filled the survey on 2nd feb and still waiting for delivery. On tracking site just says “Please try again later, we are awaiting tracking info from the carrier.”

      Has anyone else received theirs yet?

      You are right: no survey received, so how can they still claim deliveries will start on January 2019 ?? !

      I agree, it’s not best practice. Lack of communication from Sanho is deplorable. I’m sure someone should have been able to post an update given that deadline has long passed.

      This is getting ridiculous. I guess earning over 1100% of their goal wasn’t enough to get our product on time.

      I sure would like to have that survey now. It was said that it would arrive next week, which was stated last week. tomorrow's Wednesday. Can you confirm again that this is happening this week?

      Dean on

      Not yet. It said around 28 in the mail, besides, they get 11 times than expected $, means they need to prepare 11 times of devices.

      Hi,

      I was supposed to receive the survey by the 28th to organise shipment as I am an early special but nothing as of yet. Anyone else with this situation and why isn’t there any communication about any delays.

    18. Morrison Stepp II on

      Great shipping what day?

    19. VINCENT WU Collaborator on

      @Rob The Survey is coming early next week.

      Thank you all for supporting iPad Pro Hyperdrive!

      @Mark - Appreciate the feedback, but the logo next the the USB-C port is a Power Delivery support sign! =) it is often confused with Thunderbolt logo which looks similar but have Arrow on the bottom, Check out the image on Wiki:

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thunderbolt_(interface)#/media/File:Thunderbolt_3_interface_USB-C_ports.jpg

      here is also iPad Pro Hyperdrive USB-C port spec for your reference:

      - USB-C data (USB 3.1 Gen 1, 5Gb/s) and Power Delivery (max 60W)

      Thanks again Everyone for supporting HYPER!

    25. Mark Hesser on

      I noticed a Thunderbolt logo on the images here, I hope you're aware that the new iPad Pro doesn't have thunderbolt 3, it's only USB-C

      Here’s to dongle free iPads everywhere :) Thanks for the innovation, can’t wait to see it mounted (with my SD card etc). Shame Apple still cripple the iPad regarding standard external drives, but hopefully that’s changing in next IOS. Cheers Sanho!
