A very Happy Presidents Day to everyone!

Last week we shipped a total of 3K units. This week, we are on schedule to ship another 5~8K units. Next week, we will have another 15~18K to finish the remaining Kickstarter reward shipping. Workers coming back from Chinese New Year have allowed us to significantly ramp up production towards the end of February.

You will receive an email once your reward is shipped. You may need to log in to to obtain the tracking number.

Unfortunately we do not have a way of telling you where you are in the queue or giving anyone a more specific ship date. We are shipping out ALL Kickstarter rewards over the next 2 weeks. If you have completed your survey, you can be assured that your reward has shipped or is shipping very soon. If you still cannot find your survey, please visit to retrieve your survey. We thank you for your understanding and patience!

Protection for MacBook - 20% OFF iCarbons with "HYPERDRIVE20" coupon code

      Wow...numerous backers in the #1-500 range reporting no shipments at all and you were supposed to be shipping all the KS backers by this week, and here we are with no info yet. Are we getting an update any time soon?

    2. reizist on

      How is ...going? Just I want to know the progress.

    3. Heesung Yang

      Could you update? Still haven't gotten any tracking number.

    4. Zuccamburg on

      They are really messing up everything they did good until know, with this awful shipping exoerience.

    5. Richard Flapper on

      Hmm .. same here. Back number 720 but still no confirmation mail. I can even still alter my survey in backer kit. It's a bit strange.

    6. Matt Combes on

      I am an early bird backer and I did receive a DHL tracking number on 2/17. As of today, 2/21, it only shows that it's "En route to DHL eCommerce Distribution Center". There is no estimated delivery date provided. But it is on its way.

    7. Zuccamburg on

      @Devin Caldwell they are going random... I'm under 1000 in KS and also under 1000 in Backerkit, but no mail or tracking code on my backerkit page...

    8. Devin Caldwell on

      Either no one got an email or they are going off the backerkit number. I am in the same boat. I think I'm in the first 2000 backer batch but haven't gotten any email.

      Either no one got an email or they are going off the backerkit number. I am in the same boat. I think I'm in the first 2000 backer batch but haven't gotten any email.

      @CJ obviously. Why wouldn't I go for an early bird reward, if I were one? ;)

      Will I get my tracking number once my product is shipped? In addition, do coupons have expiration dates?

    13. CJ Johnson on

      Two the three other commenters: Are you all in the early-bird tier? Because I had a quick look and it looks like the number of early-bird backers totals out to just around 3000, so probably they're sending those out first.

      Anyway, I was thinking (if you guys do indeed read these comments) that for the next version, or even as an accessory add on, you could include two short USB-C extension cables, maybe only an inch or two long in total, that you can plug in and extend the hyperdrive past the Macbook's body, allowing for bulky cases to fit with the hyperdrive. It won't be as elegant, but certainly it would help people who - like me - would probably avoid getting one for fear of it not fitting a future or current macbook case. It would also help if Apple for some arbitrary reason change the width between the two Thunderbolt ports in a future macbook, as they so often do for no reason apart from "just because." At least then people with a first-gen hyperdrive can still use it if they upgrade their macbook.

      Just a thought.

      I'm backer #155 and wondering if we will get an email with the tracking number as well? Or is it a blind shipment? It's just to have an expectation as to when it will arrive.

      Do you have any idea as to how long the shipping will take to get here (U.S.)? I only assume I was in the first batch based on backer#.

      Thank you.

      I'm backer #182. I have filled out survey, still haven't received my tracking number. Are you really shipping the product?

      My backer number is less than 500. There is no tracking number for me. You should not be surprised to find me very dubious that you've shipped three thousand, when I should have been amongst the first 500.
