MAGTOP Magnetic Laptop Charging Cable

Ensure your device stays protected with the MAGTOP Magnetic Laptop Charging Cable. Taking a page from the Apple book, this incredible cord prevents damage to your charging cable and port. Complete with a magnetic design, the MAGTOP Cable connects to your current cable and your laptop. In the middle is a magnetic connector. This innovative design allows the cable to break free when it encounters strain so it’s yank-safe and snag-free. With MAGTOP, there’s not worry about tripping over your cables or yanking it from the charging port. In addition, the MAGTOP Cable glows in the dark to make it even easier to see. Compatible with a whole suite of popular brands, the MAGTOP Cable integrates seamlessly into your workspace. Additionally, plugging in has never been so easy. With the strong magnetic system, the MAGTOP Cable automatically connects when in close proximity.

Hi Magtop, are you planning on resuming the campaign? I would realy love having such a cable!

Review from Kickstarter
Dear backers, The Magtop campaign is not reaching the expected audience levels. After studying the campaign we have decided that the best option is cancel it and launch it again on the next dates with a better promotion. On the new campaign the most important thing is to continue counting on your support. Without you, this project would not be possible. As you know, with the campaign cancellation, your current pledges will not be charged. We hope you to continue supporting us in the new campaign. Thank you very much, Regards, Magtop team. --------------------------------- Estimados patrocinadores, La campaña de Magtop no está alcanzando los niveles de audiencia esperados. Después de estudiar la campaña hemos decidido que la mejor opción es cancelarla y volverla a lanzar próximamente con una mejor promoción. En la nueva campaña lo más importante es seguir contando con vuestro apoyo. Sin vosotros este proyecto no sería posible. Cómo ya sabréis, al cancelarse la campaña, no se cobrarán vuestras contribuciones actuales. Esperamos que volváis a apoyarnos nuevamente. Muchas gracias. Un saludo, Equipo Magtop.

Hi Awax and Arik. We are very grateful for your suggestions and we take them into account. We also think that the project is not reaching its potential. We have not given up on trying to find solutions, and we are studying new measures to improve the project and try it is succesful. We will contact backers in the next days and think about the next steps to get a succesful project. Thank you to all of you!!!

@Awax:Thanx..Have a feeling the creators have given up on this ...what a pity , such a good product .
Awax
Review from Kickstarter
@Arik: I don't know for sure if that would be within KS policy allowances, but I would personally stay away from advertising in the comments. Too much of a slippery slope between a genuine comment and "comment spam." And in answer to your question, no, I have not seen advertising within comments, but I have backed numerous projects where the creators linked to other projects from other creators within the project pages, updates, and email. Some of them have explained the exposure reciprocity explicitly while others just include links as "intersecting projects we're backing," without any explanation. I think the quid pro quo goes without saying. I would look for projects within the same category as yours without being directly competitive (of course). For example, there are many raspberry pi based projects. It would be safe to assume many of their backers have laptops and would be primary targets for marketing your product.

@MAGTOP-Contact the guys at ZeTime: Project. They have over 14000 backers myself included.i Will be to post there if they agree.

Review from Kickstarter
@Awax - Would you know if we as backers can do that on another campaign comments page?
Awax
Review from Kickstarter
Hi again. One last suggestion from me. I have noticed that a number of successful KS campaigns use cross promotion of other KS projects to get more people to view their own. It's usually done at the bottom of update messages from the creators. I'm not sure what the KS policy is on advertising within a campaign, but it seems to always be promotion of projects that the creator is actually backing, i.e., "here's an update and also check out these cool projects we are backing ourselves." Of course, it appears prior arrangements were made so that the other creator reciprocates the exposure. Good luck.

Hi Gabriel. Thank you very much for your suggestion. We take them into account. We will try to improve our cover picture. Regards
Gabriel Valenzuela
Review from Kickstarter
I have a suggestion that might work: You have 3 images in your project header, separated by two red lines. How about only using the top right image, or one similar? Edit the color to emphasize more white, or use a different image with brighter, cleaner colors (Pure white desk, black laptop, neon green Magtop), while focusing on a more defined image of the magtop separated, but clearly meant to go together. Last thing, add clear, bold text to the empty white space of the image: "Magtop: Magnetic laptop cord for all" - Or whatever else you prefer. A strong, clear image attracts attention. Yours might be a little cluttered. To be honest, I only clicked on your project because I read the title and verbally said "Finally!"

Sad to see that only 4% is funded in 16 days, while a lot was funded in the beginning.. :(

Hola sboixg, sí también lo tenemos. Muchas gracias a tí. Sorry Awax

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Awaxd, thank you very much for your support! . We have already contacted most legitimate tech news outlets at the beginning of the campaign and some days ago, but we didn't get any answer.
We are doing some improvements and will let you know very very soon.

Hola, buenos dias, :) en mi caso mi portatil es un XMG U-705. ¿disponeis del modelo de conector de esta marca también? gracias.
Awax
Review from Kickstarter
Dear @creator : I would recommend, if you haven't already, to prepare a formal press release and submit it to as many legitimate tech news outlets as possible. Try to call people and speak to them in person. If you have demo units available, send them out! Your idea fills a need that everyone with a non-magsafe laptop legitimately has. In my experience, and that of many, many others, the power connection is the single most common point of failure. For a very small cost, your product would elegantly and genuinely solve this problem. As others have stated, it defies logic that your project is not already at 300%-400% of your modest funding goal. It has to be that people don't know about it or don't understand exactly what it is. Should be well within your power to rectify! Good luck!

Hi Arik, firstable thank you very much for your support. We have not any paralell campaign on Indiegogo or any other crowfunding site; you are right, we don´t understand why the campaign does not atract more backers but the real thing is we have very little coverage and audience. Because conversion rates are better than good, nearly 10 visits we get one more backer. Any advise to improve it is welcome!.

Review from Kickstarter
Wow! Arik and you are so helpful!!!! And think every other person over here is a moron! As you have created a wonderful project, I thought as you have the backer list you can always ask people to buy from a website you create! But alas! My bad! Thanks to Arik again!! Cheers!!!

@Magtop it would be a shame if it does not reach the goal :(, will it get a kickstart on indiegogo then?

Review from Kickstarter
Hello Poheart. Magtop is designed for power adapters up to 150w, and as we have looked up the Razer Blade 2016 seems to have a 165w power adapter, more powerful than our design limit, so we can't guarantee perfect operation for that model. However is very near the limit and it could performs ok anyway, but we can not assure that because is over our design limit. Thank you!
MAGTOP
Review from Kickstarter
Hi Rohil Chaddha. As Arik explain perfectly below, if the project doesn't reach the goal, the project would be cancelled, backers would not be charged, payments would be cancelled by Kickstarter and rewards could not be delivered. Thanks

Hi, Yura. Yes, Magtop is avaliable for Sony Vaio SVT151A11L | SVT15114CXS. Yes, you can add another 10€ for another Magtop Cable; but now throught "Special Deal", because Early Bird is finished, but "Special Deal" also continues with 10€ price. Thank you.
Arik
Review from Kickstarter
@Rohil Chaddha: as its All or nothing.We will not be charged, and thats the end of it. They may have another parallel Campaign on another crowdfunding site.They might come up with some other ideas. Can't understand why this Campaign does not attract 1000's of backers.! Maybe their exposure is limited..no press coverage,no CNET review..such a pity as there is nothing like this out there.Coo'on guys at MAGTOP put some chilly behind you and get this project rolling. Not to late yet.

@creator, is MagTop compatible with Sony VARIO model: SVT151A11L | SVT15114CXS
Can i add another 10€ for second magtop on early bird pledge?
MAGTOP
Review from Kickstarter
Hi Thomas. The magnetic connector works without problems for power supplies up to 150W. The cable and magnetic connector work in the same way as a non magnetic connection cable extension, with very low contact resistance in the magnetic connector, and in consequence with low heat generation and low voltage drop. Our studies and tests for many differents laptops have confirmed the absence of problems for the hardware in a long term operation and the fact that the Magtop cable is totally safe. Thanks
Thomas
Review from Kickstarter
Is there any chance of heat or fluctuation of current or voltage?
Is this safe?
Will this affect the motherboard of the laptop in long run?
MAGTOP

Review from Kickstarter
@eriksiemens I messaged creator about this same issue the other day and was told they would provide a USB-C adapter for Apple computers, but only for charging not data transfer. I was told I would be able to select it in the survey at the end if it is funded.

Hi creator, in the video you state 'not available for Apple'. Has that changed and/or is it available for the newer macbooks with USB-C ports only?
