What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Our vision is a device that has it all; no more having to buy accessories and complementary cables or products. 

Even after consistent request after request from us - the people - there was no evidence of an answer in sight. 

We firmly value the voice of the people because we are some of those people. We could wait no longer. We had to take action. After much deliberation and design, we humbly present to you

Mahri is the world's first iPhone case that has everything you want:

  • Dual Lightning Ports
  • Wireless Charging
  • Battery: Additional 100%
  • Protection of Phone
  • Slim Design

Slide your iPhone into this case and you're ready to listen to music and charge your phone at the same time. We have worked with a prestigious manufacturing firm to engineer the best product we can at the highest quality for the best price. We successfully completed our prototype, and we're ready to start full-scale production. Now, we need your support to finance our initial run of Mahri.

Mahri Working Prototype:  

Video demo coming November 22nd

 

 

What the case looks like is important to us! We have worked hard to make sure that our case doesn't turn your sexy new iPhone into a brick. In one word our case is  Aesthetic

It's not surprising that a recent study concluded that people accurately correlate a person's accessories with their personality. How amazing is that - our appearance can dictate what other's think of us. 

We took advantage of this bias and formulated a variety of images consisting of 10 different Phone Cases. 

We surveyed multiple participants asking them to rank each case based on 4 criteria: Ugly, Dull, Sleek, & Sexy.

We concluded the surveys after we received consistent results conveying an accurate depiction of what all the spectrum's contained:

This is exactly what we aimed for. By eliminating the added bulk at the bottom and back, we have designed a stylish, sleek, & sexy case that accurately correlates with you.

Colours

4 different color variations to choose from:

The foundational color base consists of a high-quality paint to ensure it is durable, long-lasting, and safe. A professional matte-looking overlay is then pressed upon it to allow a soft-feel to the hands, while it reinforces the longevity of the material.

 

Dual Lightning Ports

Since Apple did away with the audio jack on the new iPhone 7, a lot of folks are wondering: How do I listen to music and charge my phone at the same time?

The answer: Mahri, the FIRST EVER Dual Lightning port case, designed specifically for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Wireless Charging

You will have the option to recharge the phone and case using virtually any wireless charging technology. Compatible with Qi and other wireless charging technologies, you can top off your phone and case in cafes, cars or anywhere that has a wireless charge system available.

We have already completed production of our own branded wireless charging bases that you will have the option to get with Mahri.

Double Your Battery Life

Nowadays, it is not uncommon for the average phone to run out of power by the end of the day. It can be frustrating having to carry around the charging cable with the inevitable expectation of finding somewhere to plug it in. 

When we visit a gas station, how much fuel do we put in? We fill it up as much as we can to avoid wasting time revisiting the pump. Do we carry around a canteen of fuel everywhere we go? Of course not. We know that our car can make it to a gas station before it runs out.

Why should this be any different for our phones? For such an integral part of our lives, we should have the luxury of knowing that our phone will last the whole day without having to carry around a portable canteen.

Mahri eliminates this nuisance. By simply plugging in or using the wireless charging pad while you sleep, Mahri will recharge herself and through advanced battery flowing technology, will also share her charge with the iPhone 7's built-in battery; there is no need to ever remove Mahri.

 

 

July 2016, Sparen began designing a battery case - “Mahri” - for the iPhone 6, 6S & 7 with wireless charging capabilities. It was not until August, that speculation around the removal of the headphone jack became prevalent. 

Sparen saw this as an opportunity and redesigned Mahri to implement a dual-lightning port. With the help of two teams of engineers - one residing in Canada, and the other currently working with Sparen’s manufacturers in China - they have done what has been hailed as, “too good to be true” and developed a prototype of the revolutionary, Mahri.

With your help and support, Sparen will be able to mass produce Mahri and continue to develop innovative products.

With the recent events revolving around certain phones exploding, we value the safety of all of you extremely seriously.

Most phones use Lithium-Ion batteries for their power, and it just so happens that the liquid swimming around inside most lithium ion batteries is highly flammable.

Abiding by our guidelines of only using the best materials, Mahri will contain a Lithium-Polymer battery. Although this costs us an additional 10-30% more to make, it is unique in that a micro porous electrolyte is used instead of the traditional porous separator and it is contained within a flexible polymer casing for protection. It also allows Mehri to be thinner than conventional Li-ion.

This is why we provide a modest and safe 100% increase in battery. This will enable your phone's charge to last the entire day without having to worry.  

The iPhone 7 currently contains a 1960mAh with the iPhone 7 Plus having a 2900mAh. Mahri will respectively contain 2000mAh and 3000mAh.

Risks and challenges

We are an extremely hard-working and persistent team that possesses the required knowledge to provide a quality product in this industry; we have previously developed similar products for mobile accessories, that included everything from protection to performance. Although each of us has a different skillset ranging from business to engineering, this is our advantage because we are able to combine this wide range of technicality. This complementation has allowed us to succeed in every industry we've pursued throughout our careers.

The risks and challenges we could face consist of, integrating all of our features into a compact, sleek, and safe product. We have completed implementing all aspects - battery, wireless, dual port - into the case, however, we are looking forward to adjusting it based on your guys' requests. Once done, the finances we receive will go into producing and testing the final product before we ship it out. Our team is ready to face this challenge and pull through to create a product that will disrupt the smartphone industry and give the people the experience they have patiently been waiting for.

A huge underlying obstacle that many start-ups face, is not in the design phase of their product, but in the manufacturing. This is where Sparen thrives. We have established many prosperous relationships with manufacturing firms throughout the world, each with diversifying skills and resources. This allows us to utilize the best materials for each component in Mahri. Sometimes delays are inevitable. Our promis is to make sure we stay in close contact with our backer throughout the entire process if anything unexpected is to happen.

We will constantly be updating and answering any questions you may have during this process.

We look forward to bringing this product to life for you.
