iPhone 5 in Production, Ships Next Week

Backers,

ChargeCard for iPhone 5 Ships Next Week

We're on schedule to ship out ChargeCard for iPhone 5 next week.

We began manufacturing ChargeCard for iPhone 5 today and we're on schedule to package and ship them out early next week.

In fact, we've already prepped all of your shipments. Check out the enormous pile of label-backings we amassed during the process.

And check out ChargeCard in the technology section of the New York Times this week: http://pogue.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/06/27/dont-forget-the-small-ideas-that-make-a-difference/?smid=pl-share

Thanks to all of you for making this happen together with us.

As always, please write to us at chloe@chargecardproject.com with any questions.

      Where is the address survey before shipping? I recently move to new place.

      I NEVER received my charge card for Iphone5. I received one for Android (useless) to me and when I emailed was informed that the correct card would be delivered poste haste. No such luck... still waiting three months later. Please fulfill your commitments!

      Jason I think that's B.S. as well. They fulfilled this websites orders. They ship in 24hrs.

      I've just received an email from Chloe regarding the status of the ChargeCard for the iPhone 5:

      "The reason our ChargeCards for iPhone 5 are so delayed in shipment is because we're coming out with a new version. The earlier units were experiencing issues and we've made improvements and changed the design. They will ship out to you in October."

      While it is frustrating that we have to wait longer, at least they're still working on it and haven't forgotten about the backers.

      That's messed up, man.

      I was told they will be shipping in October. There was an issue that needed to be fixed.

      Creator Ryan Bertrand on August 17, 2013

      I think they meant to say, "the charge cards people bought from our website will ship this week". They don't care about the people who backed their product.

      Creator Lennart on August 17, 2013

      No sign of it here. Please inform us if all iPhone5 chargecards have been sent.

      Creator Tomás Middleton on August 15, 2013

      Backed over a year ago and still no notice of the charger... what a disgrace, so unprofessional

    14. Missing_small

      Creator Byron Rode on August 15, 2013

      Further more, that people can order from yours, and other sites, and receive theirs before those who had faith in your project as an idea, is terrible.

    15. Missing_small

      Creator Byron Rode on August 15, 2013

      As one of the first 500 backers on this project, I definitely think how the whole process has been handled is vastly unprofessional. Communication has to be drawn out of the company while I have sat back for over a year (I backed the project on 19 July 2012 and my payment which was $25 on the early bird special went off on 27 August 2012).

      I have had to move (twice) in the time that we were expected to receive the card, and now am not sure if we are going to receive it at all. Never received a tracking number, or any notification to say it was sent.

      I am 100% aware that this is a funded project and that things take time, heck, I have advocated you and other kickstarter projects where tooling and what-not has been necessary, and delays are expected, but this is out of hand.

      Haven't received my iphone 5 charge card yet! Horrible experience. They are not at all professionals.

    17. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Rusty on August 13, 2013

      Just a terrible experience. They used us to fund them but now they are selling them from the website before they have made sure funders have received awards. What a disgrace.

      Hi Noah& Adam
      I just want to find out why I haven't received my Iphone 5 charge card last time I write to you regarding a wrongly delivered charge card(Micro USB one) and redirected me to ms Chloe which I did, and she instructed me to resend it to a specified address( which I did immediately) and assured me that she was aware that I was slated to receive the right charge card (iPhone 5 charge card) my concern is I notice a lot of people confirming here that they've received their iPhone 5 charge card and I'm yet to receive mine; I wonder is it as a result of the mix up mentioned earlier? Or am I deliberately ignored? I have written to Chloe again using the email address you gave me and oddly enough there's been no response! Unusual considering that last time I got prompt and decent responses from her.
      Sorry for the rambling... Pls clear this up for me. Thanks
      Stanny

      Still waiting for iPhone 5 charge card. Very frustrating I have not received mine when most have - I hope I have not Been forgotten as they tell me they have no way of checking my status other than it will be here soon

      I received mine a few days ago, Havent checked it yet because I am waiting for the next iPhone. I will have to check to see if mine works on a friends iphone though since people are having troubles getting them to work.

    26. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Robert Mulhern on August 7, 2013

      Any updates on this? Why are people ordering from site getting them before the kickstarters. Why would there be back orders. Shouldn't there be enough or more than what there was ordered from kickstarter. Something doesn't sound right.

    28. Missing_small

      Creator Wavy dave on August 5, 2013

      Finally received it today, but it does not charge my iPhone. Seems the lightning connector on the charge card does not go in all the way or fit properly to activate the charging cycle. Was curious if anyone else experienced a similar issue?

      Creator Debbie Osborn Kreuer on August 5, 2013

      What? @Craig Hodgson... people that purchased them have received them...but backers have not?

      Creator Debbie Osborn Kreuer on August 5, 2013

      Did you send them out yet? We'll be getting new iphones by the time they are ready and they will be obsolete again...

      Creator Craig Hodgson on August 5, 2013

      Hi, any update would be good, especially since I past around the discount code and out of the four people that ordered all four now have theirs (delivered 6-10 days ago!) even feedback on an ETA would be useful :-)

      This is a huge disappointment that the update was incorrect and there has been no further communication. I'll think twice before backing another project from these guys. What a headache.

      Creator Drew Leonard on July 30, 2013

      Here is an email I got last week after emailing them, not that it tells you much:

      Hi Drew,

      Unfortunately I cannot say for sure whether or not yours has shipped. We were more backordered than I had thought. But we did a big production round recently and are now trying to fulfill all of our backorders. Thus, if yours hasn't shipped already it should do so very soon!

      I know it's been frustrating to wait this long and I really do apologize for the wait. I hope you enjoy ChargeCard once it finally makes its way to your doorstep. We're a small company and you, our customer, is really our top priority (along with a great product!), so please write back with any questions or concerns and we'll do whatever we can to resolve your issue and keep you happy.

      Again, I apologize for the delay. Thanks so much for your patience and please get back to me with any other questions or concerns.

      Sincerely,

      Chloë

    39. Missing_small

      Creator John O'Reilly on July 28, 2013

      Yes, this is frustrating. They've been less than transparent; haven't heard in a month. Is it quality issues or have they diverted units to the retail channel to keep distributors happy and leave backers waiting.

    40. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Ben Perkins on July 28, 2013

      Still no ChargeCards or updates? I'm a little annoyed that they're already for sale on other websites while we're still waiting...

    41. Missing_small

      Creator jmonty on July 27, 2013

      Also still waiting. Honestly I don't understand why there is no update when there was a promise to ship them out a while ago. You can at least correct your previous statement so that we aren't left wondering.

      They've been on sale on the website for weeks. A few weeks ago if you ordered it said they'd ship July 20th. Idk why we haven't gotten any response when these were supposed to ship two weeks ago... These kids may be engineers but don't know how to run a business.

      Creator Paul on July 21, 2013

      Still not got mine. When are they shipping. If you can order from the website and they ship on 12th what was the point of ordering early!
