About

Are you literally attached to your old charger? 

Annoyed by cable fuss while trying to use your smartphone? Or do you just hate ugly cables and chargers that clash with your carefully designed interior? We got you.

This is QUBE. The First wireless charger & powerbank. Design & technology fused into one.

Dual Wireless charging  powered by ZENS® 

The QUBE base element as well as the top provides fast and secure charging for all Qi compatible devices such as:

  • iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone XR,  
  • Samsung Galaxy: S10 Plus, S10, S10e, Note 9, S9, S9+, Note 8, S8, S8+, S7, S7 Edge  (Plus more devices)
  • And all other Qi compatible devices. 

The QUBE top holds a 10w fast charger combined with a powerful battery pack that can charge an iPhone X up to 4 times. While using the QUBE’s top for a quick charge at your favorite spot you can simultaneously charge another device on the QUBE’s base. 

The QUBE’s top ‘powerbank’ will recharge when the base and top are fused together again. Making it possible to simultaneously charge your device on top as well as the powerbank itself.

Tired of bending over the couch to only get a glimpse of a charging cable? 

Finding out the adapter was plugged out again… but foremost tired of having ugly cables and chargers mess up the interior design plan. 

We reckon, we are not the only ones. 

Say no to cable clutter. 

No matter how you slice it, we still need cables to get devices powered up.  Our frustration brought on by unsightly consumer electronics led us to the design of the QUBE.  

We envisioned an interior design object, and went one step beyond.

We created a product that can charge your tech and be beautiful at the same time. The best of both worlds. Not only can you save your battery and stay clutter-free, you can also save space. We’ve designed it to be able to charge anywhere within your home, for your smartphone, air pods and even a smart watch. 

That is true design!  

Our QUBE fits all USB powersupplies

We ship our QUBE with a long braided USB power cable that can be plugged into any USB powersupply like a computer, USB power adapter or wall socket with integrated USB port. Excluding the powersupply makes the product truly international and earth-friendly. 

MANU X ZENS® 

Our partnership with A-brand and CE market leader ZENS®  makes the QUBE not only powerfull and reliable but also extremely fast. QUBE is officially Qi and Apple licenced and based on over 15 years of experience in wireless charging technology. Qi is the standard for charging smartphones and other peripherals that require wireless power. 

QUBE is a unique collaboration where interior design and technology invigorate.

Tech specs, charge fast, simultaneously and safe

Both QUBE elements uses smart technology that auto-detects your device’s input. So it’s always charging at maximum speed. Over-current, over-voltage, and foreign object detection ensures complete safety for you and your devices.

The QUBE base holds a 5W wireless charger which fully powers an iPhone X within 3.5 hours.

The QUBE’s top 10W fast wireless charger fully chargers the iPhone X within 2 hours and combined with a powerful battery pack can fully charge an iPhone X up to 5 times.  

The QUBE top ‘powerbank’ will recharge when the base and top are fused together again. Making it possible to simultaneously charge your device on top as well as the powerbank itself.

The idea to integrate technology into interior obejects originates from 2010. The company and brand MANU eventualy was founded in 2016.

Remember the magic of playing with wooden blocks as a child? A cube has an amazing form factor. It is symetrical in every way and therefore easy on the eyes, easy to handle and strong. You can build amazing structures with a cube and is therefore the base of any foundation.

Most ideas start with a problem. But once we managed to turn that insight into a proposition the sketching started. 

Once we figured out the formfactor of what later became QUBE we started making alot of basic mock ups. Shaping these from foam block was easier than 3d printing.

In the final phase of the design we upgraded the prototypes to 3d prints. The first came out of our own printer. Later we also outsourced the printing to a more refined model maker.

We now have finished the whole design and enigeering phase and kicked off tooling. We are expecting First out of Tool samples end of June 2019. 


Why order?

If you support us now, you will be a pioneer (and awesome) - You will be the proud owner of a MANU QUBE. You will be making a statement not only for design, but also for a better living environment for yourself and others around you.


Why we need funding?

We will use the money raised by funding on Kickstarter to pay for first production run. We implemented tooling investments in the costprice of each product.


Where we ship?

We ship to all backers in the USA and EU, and more regions will follow in the future.

Risks and challenges

Off course we need to keep in mind that either God or Nature can stur the process around but if everything goes as planned we will definately ship an amazing product with outstanding quality right on time. We are very experienced in creating, developing and manufacturing new products. And so are our partners. And that experience tells us that even when things go wrong some good old hard work and elbow grease will get it done.
