"Introducing Spixi a new kind cable for smartphones. It is slim and sleek- unlike any cable you've seen before.
Spixi features a unique, retracting 2-foot cable made from an eco-friendly thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) that is stronger and more durable than polyvinyl chloride, the commonly used material for cables. Because of TPE's superior characteristics, we can design a thinner cable without sacrificing quality and performance.
Yes, we've heard about iPhone 5
Spixi comes in 3 different connector flavors: iPhone 5 (8-pin), iPhone 4/4S (and previous versions), and Micro-USB (Android, Blackberry, Windows).
The world's FIRST jam-free retractable USB cable for smartphones
A high level of design and quality- is unheard of, in the retractable USB cable world. It's our pleasure to change that.
How big is it really?
Let's take a look.
A connector like you've never seen before
The connector is sideways. This helps minimize the compactness of the design. Because the connector is oriented on its side, the chance for damaging the connector is greatly reduced.
USB flips up, up, and away
The USB connector folds away. This allows Spixi to maintain it's streamline design so it won't get caught with other items while you're taking it out of your bag.
Stays in shape to impress you
Spixi is slim. So slim that it will not interfere with the other USB ports on your laptop, so you- the user will never have to compromise. It's just slightly wider than your typical USB flash drive.
Made for on-the-go
The case is made of polycarbonate, similar to the macbook chargers. This gives protection to the cable when it is stowed and on-the-go. It will give users peace of mind, knowing that their cable is housed around solid construction.
Let's talk AND charge
Don't sacrifice freedom for portability. The popular emergency and short cables are great for certain situations, however, they put your phone in a paralytic state. Spixi's 2-foot cable is long enough to take calls or open apps comfortably, all while charging and syncing through your laptop.
And here's how you can help
We need to raise $30,000- to make Spixi come to life. The funds raised will be used to cover the tooling costs of the production molds.
A rigorous effort has been made to choose the right supplier for this product. And we're proud to say, that we've found a good match. We've been in communication with Spixi's supplier for the past 6 months, and can confirm that the our high level of quality can be met. They make product for some of the biggest names in technology, so we are confident. The supplier is located in China and we have a planned visit in the coming weeks- very exciting!
If funding is successful by November 1, we plan to ship in February 2013.
Why does it take so long to make?
We are all about transparency, so here is the breakdown: it takes 2 months to make the tooling, about 1 month to produce the units and address production quality, and an additional month for the products to arrive to our shores. So if tooling starts in November, we're looking at February to delivery Spixi to our awesome supporters!
