Hello Backers,

It was almost exactly one year ago that you brave explorers began this epic journey with us...

We were born on Kickstarter and we owe everything to YOU, our OG backers. We want to stop for a moment, a good long moment, and thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our wanderlusting souls. Thank you for making our wireless charging dreams a reality.

Now it’s time for our next great adventure together...

This is Side Pocket. The first fanny pack in the world, that wirelessly charges your devices. Based on all of the feedback we received from you, we added 30+ additional features to both the bag and its integrated power bank. Thank you for helping us make the ultimate travel fanny pack.

Side Pocket is NOW LIVE… We would be greatly honored if you all would join us as we revolutionize the wireless charging game again.

Dear Travelers, 

With one of the biggest TRAVEL weekends of the year ahead, we are back again this week with a huge update to send you off properly -

  • Beta Tester Unravel AW+ Feedback
  • Introducing Side Pocket: 100% Wireless Charging, Smart Travel Fanny Pack

 

Beta Tester Unravel AW+ Feedback

Last week we sent our first 10 Ampere Beta Testers units pulled directly from our pilot manufacturing run of Unravel AW+

We’ve compiled some of the initial feedback and we are excited to share it with you:

“Time to charge devices seems to be immensely improved. In addition I have not been waking up to hot phone or device from sitting on the charger…

...long story short the device is better, charges faster and more consistent.”

Matt H. | USA

“I have received the Beta Tester unit! I can already see/feel some of the updates and improvements that you guys have put in. 

My phones no longer get warm when charging (which is a great plus), and the same goes for my AW3 as well! 

So far, this is one of the biggest improvements that I have noted, and a huge plus that definitely addresses a lot of people's concern about overheating.

I am actually going to be travelling this upcoming weekend for Labor day, and I'll get a chance to use it more for travel” 

Holland M. | USA

 

“My Apple Watch and AirPods are both charging more consistently. [Unravel] is already changing the way I travel. ”

Clafairy M. | Canada

 

We’ll be posting more Beta Tester feedback over the next few weeks so stay tuned!

With the nod from our Beta Testers, we are plowing forward full steam ahead with the next versions of Unravel and will start shipping them end of this week!

Introducing... 

Side Pocket: 100% Wireless Charging, Smart Travel Fanny Pack

 

It was almost exactly one year ago that you brave explorers began this epic journey with us...

We were born on Crowdfunding and we owe everything to YOU, our OG backers. Our first product, Unravel, became the #1 most funded Wireless Charger in crowdfunding history. We thought that a wireless charger could be more powerful. More portable. More versatile. More fun. And so Ampere was born.

Like any great adventure, there have been a few challenges along the way. But we got through them together. And we are stronger now as a result.

We want to stop for a moment, a good long moment, and thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our wanderlusting souls. Thank you for making Unravel a reality.

Now it’s time for our next great adventure together...

Wednesday, at 1pm EST, we’re launching our 2nd Kickstarter:

Side Pocket: 100% Wireless Charging, Smart Travel Fanny Pack

 

Side Pocket is a game-changing smart fanny pack with a built in wireless power bank. For travelers like all of you — charge hands-free and cord-free while you’re on the go.

We made this product for YOU. This is the product you all consistently indicated that you wanted - a wireless input/output power bank for 100% true wireless charging ANYWHERE. 

We would be greatly honored if you all would join us as we revolutionize the wireless charging game again. Sign up below to get access before anyone else:

Who Gets these Next Versions of Unravel?

By now we bet you're thinking...wow, these new Unravels are AWESOME! But who gets them?

If you fall into one of these categories, please read the instructions and schedule in the next section.

We've been testing, tweaking and improving these next versions of Unravel for months. We want to thank those who have been patiently waiting for this. We know this has taken longer than expected, and we are very sorry about that, but we have implemented all of your feedback and used it to improve the next versions of Unravel on all fronts. We hope you find your new Unravel worth the wait!

For those of you who already have your Unravel but want one of these new versions or our new accessories — you're in luck! You can pre-order these now on our IGG InDemand page or on our website.

Hello IGGers, 

We have a MEGA update, it's so big that we've had to split it into 2! Here’s what we're covering,

 

  • Introducing the Next Unravel (Part 1)
  • Introducing New Accessories (Part 1)
  • When Will These Be Ready?! (Part 2)
  • Who Gets Them? (Part 2)
  • Become and Ampere BETA TESTER! SIGN UP NOW!  (Part 2) 

 

 

Now that it’s August, we hope you’ve been staying cool this summer! 

 

Speaking of avoiding the heat, that's one of the key things that we’ve been focused on with our next wave of Unravels. After fulfilling our 1st round of orders, we received feedback from you and based on the conversations we’ve had with you, we’ve dialed in on the features that you told us were your top priorities. 

 

So why has heat been a focus of ours? With wireless charging, any power that is not efficiently transferred between the charger and the device manifests itself as heat. When devices get warmer, they are designed to slow charging speed in order to cool down. In order to meet our standards for temperature, charging consistency, efficiency, and speed, we spent a lot of time with our manufacturing partners reviewing every detail and improving wherever we could. 

 

As part of this improvement, we saw the need and opportunity to evolve Unravel into 2 new versions that will cater to 2 audiences. And we are proud to announce that this next wave of wireless chargers are the coolest, fastest wireless chargers we’ve ever tested! 

 

Introducing the Next Versions of Unravel 

Unravel AW+ — Optimized for Apple Users 

  

We found that a lot of our backers are Apple Super Users. If that describes you, then Unravel AW+ is for you. In order to make a product that charges Apple Watches coolly, consistently & quickly, on Unravel AW+, we dedicated the C-panel entirely to the Apple Watch charging coil. 

 

We also improved the 10W Qi-charging coils in the A & B panels for faster, more consistent charging for all your other wireless charging devices. We think Unravel AW+ is perfect for charging iPhone, AirPods 2 and an Apple Watch — all at the same time. Also, Unravel AW+ can be used with the same PD charger as your MacBook — so you can charge four Apple products with one wire, total.

 

Unravel 3+1 — Charge 4 Devices at Once 

Unravel 3+1 was designed for ultimate versatility. In addition to 3 x 10W Qi-enabled wireless charging panels, it also has a USB-C output port. You can use the output port to power any wired-charging device that uses a USB-C output. So you can wirelessly charge 3 devices & plug in your older phone…that’s 4 devices charging at once! 

 

But what about our Apple users who want 3 x 10W Qi-enabled wireless charging coils & also want to be able to charge their Apple Watch? We’ve got you covered. The USB-C output works with our new mini Magnetic USB-C Apple Watch Travel Charger (see below).
