About

The World's First Way To Wirelessly Charge & Wall Mount Your Tablet or iPad.

A wall mounted wireless charger for your Tablet or iPad. The best way to charge your tablet device around your home. Instantly accessible and always charged. 

With the Waalflower your Tablet or iPad is always charged when you need it, never run out of charge again.

Perfect as the centre of your smart home, the Waalflower creates a central hub in your home, easy enough for everyone in your family to use. 

With the Waalflower you can use your device hands free, mounted at the perfect slight angle to both view content and interact with your tablet or iPad, whilst it stays docked and charging. 

Perfect for catching up on content on your Tablet. Use it as a second screen to your existing set up.

The Waalflower Set is packaged separately which means you can mix and match to fully kit out your home, office, event space or store.  

Perfect if you have more than one tablet or if you want to mount your device in multiple locations.  

     
                                                                 
 

We are using QI wireless charging coils; the most popular universal standard adopted by us and the biggest brands in the world like Apple and Samsung. Our coils are supercharged compared to the ones you may find in your smartphone, to safely meet the charging requirements of tablets and iPads. 

We started to work on this new product with the ambition to transform the way we charge our devices at home. After multiple design directions and prototypes, we are now in the final stage of the development. With your support, we will start the certifications process and open tooling to kick off production.

We have been working closely with the Central Research Laboratory (CRL), an award winning hardware accelerator, specialised in bringing products in to reality. Our team has been working alongside the product design experts and the electronic engineers here at the CRL, to hone every aspect of the waalflower, inside and out.

We are a driven and passionate group of designers from London, UK. On a mission to rid the world of wires and cables and help enhance the way people use their technology, one product at a time.   

Arun Thangavel is an experienced entrepreneur with a background in digital design, user experience design and marketing. He has helped design, create and market products and services for some of the best startups in the London technology scene. 

Aaron Bent our community lead. Passionate about creating great content and a community around this innovative product and around our growing company. Previously he worked, managing and delivering projects for Warner Bros. and it's multiple brands.

Matthew Hyland an experienced product design engineer, with years of industry experience. He has already brought products from concept to manufacture in various industries, from consumer electronics to high end furniture.

We’ve had some amazing people work with us along the way and we’ve built a team of advisors that will help us as we bring the Waalflower to life.

After the campaign you will receive a survey where you will be able to fill in your shipping details and specify the Tablet or iPad device you have. If you have backed an 'ADD ON' pledge you will also be asked to confirm the combination of the product you want. 

Shipping will also be charged after the campaign, as we will be able to more accurately gather exact prices once we know the quantities we are shipping to each country. Based on current estimates we expect shipping to cost: 6-10% (for US, CAN and EU backers) and 8-14% (for the remaining International backers) of the pledged amount.

We've been working hard with our manufacturers to make sure everything is in place ready to go soon after our Kickstarter campaign and we are aiming to be shipping the first batch for May next year.

                      

Risks and challenges

As with any technology device, there are always likely to be production related challenges and risks, but we have minimised the risk with extensive research, rigorous product testing and creating a network of experienced firms and advisors and establishing a path all the way from concept to fulfilment.

The partners we are lucky enough to be working with are all established companies with decades of experiences between them. These relationships have allowed us to validate our concepts and helped us work towards finalising elements of the project such as sourcing, manufacturing, meeting product certifications, packaging, taxes, fees and shipping amongst other elements.

We’re confident in our ability to deliver the Waalflower on schedule with the highest level of quality and attention to detail. We will never compromise on the design and functionality of this product even in the event of unexpected trials and tribulations.

Sharing our story and our adventure is one of the many things we love about Kickstarter. By backing our campaign, you will not only be helping the Waalflower become a reality but also following us on every step of the journey, from pre-production to the first products arriving at your door.
