Bigger Battery, New Features

Posted by James Siminoff (Creator)

Hello, 

It has now been exactly two weeks since we launched POP, and thanks to you, we have blown by our goal of $50,000 to an incredible $86,000 in pledges. 

We have been hard at work getting POP ready for manufacturing. At this stage we have begun creating the “tooling”, which are the molds that POP will be made in.  Also we were able to add another 1,000 mAh to the battery, now the biggest portable battery just got bigger, 26,000 mAh! 

Based on your feedback we have been able to add a few new features to POP:

1. POP TOP: Based on your feedback and comments we decided to make the top of POP into a storage area. This area will be able fit the AC adapter, as well as have space for USB cables. We think this is an awesome upgrade to the design and functionality of POP and we’re so thankful to have amazingly thoughtful Kickstarter backers like you to suggest such creative ideas. 

2. POP for Emergencies: Possibly one of the best reasons to have POP that we never thought of – you did. When the power goes out from natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, etc. our mobile devices become our only lifeline. Use POP as the primary charging station in your house; if the power goes out, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that you can charge your devices for days. 

3. POP Station: We had a lot of people tell us how much they loved POP but that they did not need the portable aspect of it. So once again, based on your feedback, we came up with the POP Station. Everything is the same as the traditional POP except we took out the battery. POP Station is ideal for places where an outlet is handy, yet you want a powerful and elegant charger for simultaneously juicing up multiple devices. We’re also offering you the option to change your order to POP Station if you’d prefer. POP Station is available now on Kickstarter for $99. 

We made a new video to include the great new features above. Check it out, and as always, your feedback is awesome – keep it coming. We cannot thank you enough. 

Sincerely, 

Jamie, John and the Edison Junior Team

      I hope that Apple has looked at this site ( http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/sectors/rtte/chargers/index_en.htm ) for the iPhone5... :)

      Hey James, if you do go the route of having 2 "mini" apple connectors, would those also have a split design to have micro USB as well? As an android guy, it would be nice to not lose 2 connectors :)

      @Adam We should have those specs by the end of next week. While we have a final production version things could still slightly change in the meantime and I don't want you to get the wrong thing.

      Thanks James, so awesome! If I was looking for an appropriate solar charging option for the POP, what technical specs should I make sure are available to ensure I can recharge during a prolonged outage?

      @Dennis We have addressed it at the bottom of the Kickstarter page. But just to recap if Apple changes to a 19 pin we will then do 2 of the 19 pin connectors and 2 of the 30 pin connectors on pop.

      Hopefully you guys will also be addressing the rumored new 19 pin connector.

      @Roger – Thanks!

      @David – That's a great suggestion, however we already have a lot of pledge levels so we were a little worried about adding to the noise. If we get enough requests though, that is definitely something that we'll consider. In the meanwhile, if you'd like to pledge $248 we'll gladly get you a POP Station and POP Portable :) Just send me an email directly at j@edisonjunior.com once you've made the pledge and I'll be sure to create the order for you.

      Thanks!

      Could it be possible to have a pledge that includes one pop station + one pop classic for 248$ (or less of course ;)) ?
