About

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge in the past was the mechanism inside the timer that had to be 100% waterproof. Within a team of experienced mechanical engineers we found several solutions and I am proud that we don't have to use any electronics to set the timer.

As of now we have decided on a mechanism that is very similar to the one used by egg timers - inexpensive and simple to manufacture.

Second biggest challenge is to find out how many times this campaign is being backed and therefore how many tealightful timers have to be made. Depending on the quantity we then have to choose which manufacturer will be the right one to produce the parts.
