      Received my Under Cap today, however, the metal button had separated from the Cap. Be careful when you open your envelope as it could fall out and be very difficult to find!
      I’ve reglued it but padawanlab, you should be aware ... maybe a different adhesive?

      Still waiting on the "puck"
      Any news about it?

      best regards

      I've finally given my Totm to my wife for a present but the genuine apple charger doesn't fit (it's really not close at all). I've read that you tested each one - so maybe yours was a different apple type to mine but it doesn't change the fact that it doesn't fit. Is there a suggested way to sand it - or can i return it for another that does fit?


    5. Thomas Katlun on February 18

      Ok, understood. Please send me an email regarding the additional costs and how to proceed. Thanks! Thomas

      @Jay : we sent you a mail about your Pledge and comment
      @Thomas : We can send you Totm right now but we can't do it at no additional cost...
      - First of all because it won't be fair for other backers who paid the 2 step delivery option...
      - Then, let me assure you the delay is not something we are please of (and it cost us a lot). but being backers ourselves, we know it happens almost all the time for hardware development (see our backer profil). We though we would be spared... but eventually it happened.

    7. Thomas Katlun on February 12

      After the new announcement (Jul for Travl) I`d like to know, how can I get at least my Totm earlier. And to be frank: With no additional costs, thank you!

      Hi, we checked your pledge and it seems you choose the standard delivery option (ie : you'll get Totm and Travl in one package later this year).
      We sent a message to every backer on Jan 5. explaining the difference between "2 steps delivery" option ans "Standard" delivery option.

      If you want Totm "now" (then Travl later), please contact us by message.

      @ Lars-Åke
      Hi. Thanks for the feedback. We’re glade you like Totm.
      1) we’re still waiting for the « puck » form our partner. It should be ok this week. Then we’ll send them to you ASAP.
      2) You’ll here (actually : read) about Travl in a couple of days. We plan a KS update with a lot of news.

    14. Lars-Ake Nygren on January 28

      The totm is a great piece, but I have a two questions
      1 the puck was missing, when are you sending those out?
      2 any status on the travel?

      Hi Adrian,

      Sorry to read that you have some trouble.
      We’ll contact you by mail to try and sort it out... but for everyone to get this information : we did test every Totm we shipped ourselves with an official Apple Watch cable. So we know it fits. Now you are probably right about the wood and weather (we did put a Totm in a freezer and we had to say about 24h before being able to put the cable back in place)

    16. Adrian Wright
      on January 11

      Got it!

      Tried with the charger from Watch and Watch 2, but neither quite fit.

      I’m a bit concerned that the delivery was left outside in damp weather, and the packaging isn’t very robust. Is it possible that the wood has expanded slightly?

      Et tout d'abord Bon Noël à toute l'équipe :-)
      J'ai souscris tardivement (début décembre) à l'option livraison en 2 fois (via les solutions proposées sur votre site) et je n'ai pas encore reçu mon Totm.
      Est-ce normal?
      Merci d'avance pour votre réponse!

      @Thomas: Hi, it may be a little bit tricky to fit the cable « puck » into the hole. But we tried every Totm with our cables (one plastic and one silver) and they all worked

      2 things to check:

      1 - you have to put it from « inside » Totm. I know it’s obvious but it’s better to tell it :)
      2 - put the cable first in front of its « place » then push the puck with your finger from the inside.
      3 - pinch the puck between your thumb and finger then try to move a little bit from left to right

      Let me know via direct message if it worked.
      In the mean time we’ll shot a short Tuto video (+ photo)!and post it on KS soon.

      I received my Totm yesterday. But the round charging part of Apple charging cable does not fit(its too big) into the hole of the Totm. What is your recommendation ?

      Kind Regards

      Hi @Harmen, We just updated the survey with a picture of 2 times of wood.
      For TotmTravl the main difference would be color (cause it's a very small and light product).
      But as said in the News 8 : you'll be able to change at the end of the campaign. We just need an idea of proportions for the first production batch

      Hope it answered your question.


    31. Harmen ter Horst on October 30

      Hi! Is there any way for you to show the difference in appearance for the 2 wood types? Because if I have to choose on short notice, I'd like to see the difference to be honest. What are the pros and cons for both types of wood, main difference in color, etc. I'm not a expert on wood types, so some visual aids would be greatly appreciated ;-)

      @Özhan : Hi, well actually we're playing this one the "Apple way"... Meaning we don't want to tell you about a mAh capacity because it's still in development and it's subject to change (even more now with Apple Watch Series 3 out).
      The thing you have to know is that we have the "dynamic Range" feature + the technology we put inside Travl to achieve this goal of 7 days of charge... and it will.

      Özhan Türkes on October 26

      Can you please give us some more details about the battery? E.g mAh? It’s a bit vague when you talk about 7 days of charges. Thank you.

      Where to find the AR App on the App Store? Link leads to different Apps...

      @Paul Hollingdrake: you know what Paul? You’re absolutely RIGHT !!
      TotmTravl will be a great product ONLY if it is HomeKit compatible. And we love great product (that’s actually why we’ll produce it in France and not in China)...

      ... so we’re changing it to 30 achievement as you proposed.

      And you know what? We’ll do even more!
      We’ll change the weight of EPIC.
      Actually EPIC are EPIC because they have a great value and because they’re not easy to achieve.

      But a great effort means a great reward.
      So EPIC will worth 4 points and not 2.

      We’re applying changes on the campaign page and prep a News to notify everyone.

    37. Paul Hollingdrake on October 22

      I've seen that you guys have a community vote for MFI and Lightning at 50 Achievements...
      Any chance you could poll the community on priorities for travl to have native HomeKit? I backed before looking into how complex and fiddly HomeBridge is, and it's now my number one hope for the stretch goals.
      If it isn't unlocked near the end of the campaign, I might consider rolling my pledge back to just the totm :(

    40. padawanlab Creator
      on October 18, 2017

      @Muneeb: Hi Muneeb

      1) If you want more than 1 Totm (or Totm+Travl) you have to add 19€ for a second Totm (or 49€ for a second Totm+Travl)... and if you want 3 or 4 items just multiply 19€/49€ by the number (No need to increase the shipping cost)

      2) Yes you can plug any device on Travl’s USB port. But keep in mind that Travl is sized for Apple Watch which does not support « fast charging ».

      2 bis) Actually, stay tune cause we may have something for you in our upcoming Stretch Goals :D

      Hello, just backed. Few questions:
      1. If i want more than one Totm how do i add to the order.
      2. The powerbank is it just for apple watch use or can be used to charge iphone as well?

      @Jason Smith: hi Jason. Off course we’re working on it but I can’t commit to it ridge now.
      What I can tell for sure is that, as soon as we saw the success of the campaign (we did not expect it to be so fast), we asked our electronic supplier to check the requirement and look for certification process.

      Stay tune we’ll come back at you via « Kickstarter news » really soon.

      Hi! Really good idea! Are you planning versions with a different wood type or in different colors? Maybe as a stretch goal? A dock, that fits to the interior would be nice.

      Now we’re almost 200% funded (197% at tone of writing) can we get confirmation that HomeKit will be native rather than via homebridge?

    47. CloudifAa on October 14, 2017

      Bonjour, peut être une question débile mais dans le widget " batterie " , est ce que l'icône du Totm & Travl sera réellement comme sa ? Je veux dire, que l'icône ressemblera au comme sur le votre ?

    48. padawanlab Creator
      on October 14, 2017


      - Pictures of the App in the Kickstarter page are mockups but we do have a "developpement app" (which is quite ugly) that is working. We use it to test the Bluetooth connection between Travl and the iPhone and to debug triggers.
      Regarding the development of the final app we dont have any fear about it as we have xp in developing apps (actually one of us is a full time mobile dev).

      - The light is a Philips Hue Bubble (if it's what you were asking :D )

    49. MaKa on October 14, 2017

      I have two questions if you could respond:

      - Do you have the software for watch and the phone already finished, aka do you have a working prototype of the software or your screenshots are mocks?
      - In "Magic switch" gif you show some home automation, there is a floor standing light, can you tell me what light is that?


    50. padawanlab Creator
      on October 13, 2017

      @Harmen : Yes you can but the idea is to put Totm+Travl on your night table (without a cable) and just charge it once a week (you'll be notified when you need to charge it)... But if you prefer to keep it connected, no problem.
