About

Mu Book is a powerful wireless fast charger.

But there's so much more to it than meets the eye.

Discretely hidden within the cover of the book is an internal space for storing everything you need to charge your mobile devices - home and away -  providing you with an organised and versatile way to be on the go without the clutter of cables and chargers trailing around.

Mu Book performs best when paired with 'Mu One', the world's thinnest Type-C fast charger, which is included with our 'fully loaded' reward package, with single destinations US, UK and EU only versions available.

Mu One: 45W PD charger at a glance

Mu Book can also be powered by most alternative chargers although we cannot guarantee an optimal charging experience.

Every Mu Book also ships with an elasticated lattice organiser which provides a secure and flexible way of carrying whatever items are most useful to you.

Available in black or tan.

Together, Mu Book + Mu One are the ultimate wireless & wired charging package for your devices - providing a 10W wireless fast charging experience that will complement all of the latest wirelessly charged mobile devices - as well as providing a direct 45W Type C PD fast charge for compatible Type-C charged Laptops and Notebooks, as well as all tablets & smartphones.

Details

Mu Book's supple bound and stitched cover shrouds a tough enclosure, finished with realistic page details that give it an authentic notebook feel.

The cover is firmly held shut with a strengthened elastic closure, which opens to reveal a sleek matt black interior - with a choice of inserts to suit you.

Every FULLY LOADED Mu Book includes a precision cut cork tray to house your chosen Mu One charger and provide a curated arrangement of its contents.

But sometimes you want the choice to carry something different along side the power for your mobile devices. So we’ve designed an elasticated lattice organiser, which ships in the box, to give you the flexibility to carry whatever else you might prefer.

Design Story

Mu Book marks the beginning of a new journey for us as we build on our talent for shaping enlightening product experiences and create more of what you love.

We are exploring the behaviours of ordinary people and products in everyday life, looking at mobile lifestyles to start with and investigating themes that we feel are presently under-served - nurturing ideas we think are exciting.

The first every day action under our lens is the act of charging your phone on the go. Mu Book represents a new, lifestyle orientated approach to this scenario by combining the latest wireless charging technology with a design that is a century old classic, the journal. In doing so we are blending a sense of tradition, of ritual, of unassuming ordinariness (e.g. holding a book) with the necessary twenty-first century behaviour of keeping your phone charged when you are away from home. In comparison to carrying a tangled nest of plugs & cables it's a far more refined approach and the versatility of the design opens it up to different user experiences, which is where you come in.

We want to know how you use your Mu Book and what more you might like from it?

Join us as we start this journey and as we discover and develop a range of mindfully curated products that aim to inspire you with some practical delight...

Collaboration

This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 650+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $300MM raised between them.

Risks and challenges

This isn't our first Rodeo. Between us we've successfully launched dozens of products, raised over £1M for projects via Kickstarter, have won numerous industry awards and we don't settle for second best!

Having run campaigns like this before we know that things can occasionally slip and this is a totally new product after all. But having taken our time in product development we have full confidence in our timescales, manufacturing base and ability to roll out a first class product!

We have a manufacturer already engaged, our prototyping is complete and our enthusiasm is hitting the high notes.

We have however added some contingency into our timescales for the random item that we can't predict right now but we know is coming.
