We love cool designs, and we adore user-friendly products. But having observed the market, we quickly saw the need for a docking solution that charges all common devices at once - a powerful one. In addition, it should look sleek and stylish and be easy to take with you when traveling. We wanted to provide a convenient solution when staying away from home, like in a hotel. And yes, the Apple guys need the nightstand mode for the Apple Watch and "touch for time".
The demand for USB-C™ is growing as well, and we wanted to implement the best of it into the dock. When we showed the first image on our Facebook page, we were instantly overwhelmed with compliments. We knew that we are on the right track! Our past docks got outstanding reviews for their user-friendly approach - from leading magazines like 9to5Mac. At any time, a new product always means a new challenge. However, we love challenges!
Fits into the Travel Case. Combine the OS Power Box with the OS Power Cube, and you are ready to travel anywhere, anytime. The USB-C™ port of the OS Power Box will charge the OS Power Cube within just 2 hours! What’s more, the OS Power Cube can be charged and used at the same time. Note: Shipping - only for the Power Travel Set- is limited to certain countries, due to restrictions on Lithium-Ion batteries.
OS Power Cube dimensions: 177 x 81 x 24 mm, 6 31/32"x 3 3/16" x 0 15/16", weight 495 grams / 17.4oz.
What other say about the OS Power Box
"Wow! This is a great concept. I love it. Congratulations. Very sleek and stylish. Can`t wait to take it on my next travel trip"
Andrew Bolton, United Kingdom
"I am so excited for the Power Box as it solves a huge cord conundrum. I think it is really brilliant and I look forward to seeing it. (And in reference to a campaign we did before:) Of all the Kickstarters I’ve ever backed, yours is THE ONLY product I use every day and it is absolutely brilliant"
Brian Peterson, US
Which devices can I charge with OS Power Box?
Smart Phone Slot:
OS Power Box works with all iPhones (5, 6, 8 and X series). In addition, other devices with a lightning connector will work: a convenient way to charge Airpods, Apple Pencil or the Apple TV remote. The iPhone 8 and X will come with a lightning connector, despite additional wireless charging capabilities. However, inductive charging is not the most efficient and slower than a direct connection. When on the go, you might need fast charging capabilities. And the USB output on the OS Power Box could also be used to power up a wireless pad
Smartphones with cases on should NOT be wider than 90mm (3 35/64") and need to have the charging connector centered. Those who have a flap to protect the connector input and go backward (e.g. Lifeproof case users) need to use the external USB. Otter Box Defenders work too.
Smart Watch Slot:
The OS Power Box works with all Apple Watch models (1,2 and 3) and comes with an MFI Apple Watch charging cable installed.
iPad, iPad Pro, Airpods, and virtually all other USB driven devices like smartphones, tablets, power-banks, earphones, smart watches, Bluetooth speakers and more. Even Alexa can be powered up.
Macbook (from 2015), MacBook Pro (late 2016) and other Laptops with USB-C™ input. The Microsoft Surface might work with the new USB-C™ dongle they announced to sell later this year Other devices with USB-C™, like the Nintendo Switch, will be charged as well. We are working as well on a MacBook Air solution as well. The iPad Pro 12.9 can be charged fast by using the genuine Apple USB-C to Lightning cable, providing 29 watts to the iPad. Same with the iPhone8 and iPhone X now
The Rewards for our Backers
This is the important part for you. What will YOU get? First of all, we want to treat every backer equally and with the given respect for backing the project. This is our approach: To ask for your kind support. Every backer counts and is very valuable to us. Our prices are calculated to be able to manufacture the OS Power Box with the quality you would naturally expect. Keep in mind: that this is NOT simple plastic stuff. MFI, USB-C™ PD chip, PCB, Power Supply - all come at a cost. We guess you know what Apple charges for the genuine Apple Watch charging cable!
Reaching the goal enables us to pay for tooling costs and production set up.
The OS Power Box comes with an MFI lightning connector and further includes an installed MFI Apple Watch charging cable. This can be removed and exchanged with any USB cable. The colors, either Cool Silver or Magic Black, can be chosen after the campaign, with the survey.
Important Update OS Power Box with Wireless Charging:
Apple opened iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 to the Qi wireless charging standard last week. Due to the upcoming demand, we will do as well a OS Power Box version with wireless charging. It will not have the iPhone lighting adapter, it will come with a foldable Qi module, supporting iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X. The other features, like USB-C PD port , Apple Watch will stay the same. The good news: We will offer this option to any backer. After the campaign, we will send a survey. There you can choose/opt for either the initial OS Power Box here or the OS Power Box W. This offer includes all travel packages as well. Means, if you backed a travel package like the Travel Set, you can keep it the way you initially backed it or you can opt to exchange the OS Power Box with the OS Power Box W - Wireless Charging. No need of action at the moment.

Important Shipping Advice for the Power Travel Set:
Due to restrictions on shipping lithium ion batteries, we can ship sets containing the OS Powercube only to the US/Canada (except Hawaii), Australia, Japan and the European Union (including Switzerland). If you do wholesale in a country we do not ship the power bank to, but know how to deal with the situation, please contact us for retail/distribution opportunities. By the way, we are always open to that in general!
Important note for our European backers:
Due to legal regulations, we are obliged to charge 19% VAT on your pledge. We included the VAT in the shipping cost, and consequently, they will be 19% higher than usual. The good news: "Sale is absolutely final". No additional duties, taxes or dealing with customs. For the EU, we will ship from Germany. And please keep in mind - you will pledge in US Dollars :)
