Almost home..

We hope everyone is having a great summer. After testing the JuiceTank prototypes, we decided that it was necessary to make a few modifications to the design to ensure the highest standard of quality. As a result, we are running slightly behind schedule, but things are moving along smoothly. Here are the final steps before shipping and the expected time frames:

Pre-tooling safety review: Expected Completion July 15th
Tooling: Expected Completion August 20th
UL Review: Expected Completion August 31st
Ready to Ship: Expected September 15th

We will notify you if we are coming in ahead of or behind schedule. We appreciate your continued support and patience.

      I haven't received an email about what address you guys need for my case to be sent to?

    2. Creator Lauren Short on July 29, 2012

      What if we need to change the address its shipping to?

      Jesse and Lloyd, keep up the good work. I have a 4s and plan on keeping it longer because of your case. Not everyone is as whiny as Lawson. You're creating an awesome product that no other case can beat. 2 months will fly by...and then I get to have everyone going crazy over my new case.

      Enrique,

      Yes, FCC, UL, and Apple certification are all in the works and we anticipate all certifications to be completed by September 15.

    5. Creator Enrique Gutierrez on July 3, 2012

      Are FCC and Apple approvals contemplated in those time frames?

      Chris,
      We mentioned two of the modifications in the previous update. The modifications include extending the front lip of the case, widening the carve out for the mute switch to accommodate both the 4 and 4s designs, and altering the top cover so it slides on and off easier.

      Lawson,
      There are still over a hundred million people who currently have the iphone 4 and 4s. Also, after releasing the next generation iPhone, Apple will continue to sell the iphone 4/4s at a discounted price. I am sure that "everyone" will not be getting the new iphone as soon as it is released. For those who will be getting the next generation iphone, we have an option to pre-order the next generation JuiceTank, which we will be developing as soon as the new iphone is released. It is impossible to design a case for the new iphone without knowing its precise dimensions/specifications.

      So, you're expecting to ship right after everyone gets a new iPhone that doesn't fit the case. Excellent. SO glad I lowered my bid to $1 before things went live.

      Any details on the changes?
