Vote For Us & Apple Lightning
We Need Your Vote!
After launching our Kickstarter campaign, Lexus reached out and asked if we’d like to participate in a design competition for the chance to win $25,000. Please vote at, www.lexusignition.com. You can vote every day and the contest ends Sunday, September 30th, so please take a second to vote for POP and tell your friends and family. The money will go to making POP, and possibly a new solar top.
iPhone 5/Lightning Adapter
Many of you have been asking if POP will be compatible with the new iPhone 5 Lightning connector. Apple has yet to provide enough technical details for us to tell you with certainty how exactly we’ll be able to incorporate the new chargers. Apple is expected to come out with the full Lightning guidelines in mid-October, and when they do, we will be able to finalize our design and proceed to manufacturing. Because of the delay in waiting for the Lightning guidelines, there is nothing that we can currently do to accelerate manufacturing. This could push out our production schedule a little, but again – too soon to tell. One thing we guarantee is that we will not ship a POP that is not iPhone 5/Lightning compatible.
We’re happy to announce that POP now has its own site – www.POPPortablePower.com. Now you can stay up to date with the most current POP news and progress as we continue pushing forward to the manufacturing process. You can also order more POPs if you would like to.
