I have received many emails from people on a tech startup journey and enjoy listening to this show because they can learn from the experiences of others. If you are listening to this show today and have your own idea and thinking, how do I get the prototype made, do I start a Kickstarter or Indiegogo campaign? and Where do I start? you should find today's conversation valuable.
I invited Tom Haflinger from Zendure onto my daily the podcast to found out more about the secret to a successful crowdfunding campaign and learn more about their startup story.
We also talk about how Zendure's new Passport Pro travel adapter has reached its fundraising goal of $30,000 USD in its first full day of crowdfunding on Kickstarter.
Passport Pro: Resettable Grounded Travel Adapter Passport Pro is 16% smaller than its predecessor, Passport, and includes a reusable fuse that can reset with the press of a button.
"Like other travel adaptors, Passport Pro is designed to protect itself and the user from drawing too much current," said Zendure CEO Bryan Liu. "But while most products on the market achieve this with a single-use fuse that has to be replaced, Passport Pro is back in action as soon as the user presses the reset button.
It's one less thing to worry about when traveling." One of Passport Pro's four USB power outputs has a USB-C connector that works with Power Delivery (PD) technology, which can charge many latest-generation electronics substantially more quickly than a typical USB output. With PD, Passport Pro can charge an iPhone X from zero to 50% in just 30 minutes.
