VoltTorch: Rechargeable Battery Bank + Waterproof Flashlight

$11,574

Our company, VoltNow is focused on developing products to help you stay connected. Being based in Florida, we are used to prepping for hurricanes and power outages. Two of the most important things to have on hand are flashlights and a way to keep phones charged. As a result, we would like to introduce our latest development that solves this problem -- VoltTorch.

VoltTorch is our attempt to design the perfect flashlight and battery bank that incorporates four great features.

High Capacity Battery: We are incorporating a 10,000 mAh Lithium Battery. Able to recharge most phones 4-6 times or power the flashlight for 15-20 hours straight. If you only use this as a flashlight, the battery capacity is higher than almost every flashlight out there. Standard USB output can be used to re-charge your mobile device. Standard micro-USB input can be used to recharge your VoltTorch so there is no need for proprietary adapters that can get lost. Use your current AC charger and USB cable.

Waterproof: Completely sealed housing is waterproof to at least 20 feet. VoltTorch is also dust proof, shock proof and freeze proof (operating temperature 15°F-110°F (-10°C-45°C)

Super Bright CREE LED: We sourced the best possible LED lamp that we could find. This LED has a 50,000 hour life which is basically a lifetime. It measure 450 Lumens (true un-inflated lumens unlike most other flashlight specs) and a 1,150 feet range. Standard 

Machined Airline Grade Aluminum: Machined construction using premium aluminum body with a rubberized non-slip handle. We also incorporated a hardened steel glass striker to break through car windows in an emergency.

If VoltTorch were simply a flashlight, it would be superb. Incredibly bright, long lasting rechargeable battery, rugged and water resistant. However, adding the ability to recharge your mobile devices makes VoltTorch the perfect device for your home, auto or outdoor adventures.

Where we are today:

We have spent several months working on the concept and design of VoltTorch. We were able to meet with numerous factories in Asia that are excited to work with us on this project. The prototype is complete and undergoing testing at this stage. We are also working on final packaging, user manual and other small details.

We have already paid for initial tooling costs, molds and initial deposit for our initial order. There is a large investment required due to the high order quantity requirement. As a result, we are setting this campaign to help offset 20% of the initial cost to launch this project. We are already prepared to invest the additional 80% ourselves to launch this great product. We are more than 50% complete on this project and are on track for delivery end of March 2016.

Stretch Goals: 

If we reach our funding goal of $7,500, we will include with every VoltTorch a compact USB cable and an attachable keychain. (Double VoltTorch orders receive 2 cables and 2 keychain attachments).

New LOWER Stretch Goals with more choices!

If we reach $12,000 (lowered from $25,000), we will let you choose 1 of four reward options. Each backer gets a single reward so even if you ordered a 2xVoltTorch bundle, you would get 1 reward choice. (single VoltTorch rewards = 1 reward, double VoltTorch rewards = 1 reward)

Options include:

- Dual USB 2.4A/12W Compact AC Adapter
- Bike Mount
- 2-n-1 Micro USB/Lightning Cable (MFi Cerfitied)
- Retractable Micro USB cable with Lightning Adapter (MFi Certified)

If we reach $20,000 in funding, all backers will receive their choice of two (2) rewards!

Option #1: Dual USB 2.4A/12W Compact AC Adapter

Risks and challenges

As with any Kickstarter project, there are certain risks involved. This product is not production ready yet and there is a risk that we run into technical issues that add delays. That said, our team has extensive experience designing and developing products in our past corporate lives as well as with our own start-up business VoltNow. This project is already about 50% complete and we have already paid for all the initial tooling and mold costs. Early prototypes have also tested well. We are excited to be on the last stages of finalizing VoltTorch and could use your support in bringing this to market and supporting a small business.
