Is there any other way to buy this, kickstarted is down or any other products like this that are as small

Gadget Flow Editors

I would suggest contacting the seller directly on their website to find out if they will resume the campaign: exklim.com

Bonjour, Je suis totalement déçu d'apprendre la suspension de votre projet je comprends tout à fait les raisons du site kick-starters et ne comprends pas pourquoi vous n'avez pas fait le nécéssaire de votre coté pour que cela ne se produise pas. J'ai malheureusement perdu la confiance en ce projet j'avais investi +700$, merci a kick-starters de m'avoir protéger.
Bonne chance à vous, j'y croyais vraiment énormément en ce projet :'( .
Il me reste encore un minuscule espoir que ce genre de projet puisse voir le jour. NoobActu French Youtubers.

Review from Kickstarter
@Sebastian Liedtke Regarding the Thunderbolt3 certification.
There will not be one. They do not have a single working prototype.
And Intel do not certify eGFX and Thunderbolt3 systems with the kind of specs they claim their product will have. And in their latest update they tried to fool all investors with a video of a faked external GPU. Take a look for yourself. It's not me making it up. It's their video.
Look at it and read my comments about the badly routed cable through the table. The empty case which when moved does not alter the position of the cable that is supposed to be connected. The poorly faked connection attempt when they attached the external power. They only need to avoid getting caught for faking for another 13 hours.

Review from Kickstarter
Another non-denial denial. You are trying to get funding for a product which does not exist and which you by trick and device are trying to convince funders that it does exist. The case can be opened.
Lift off the top.
Show us the complete case and its MXM-card, heatsink and fan.
There must be one as you have a fully working unit in your hand. Connect the only and fully visible TB3 cable to the computer showing the the 1050 fan spinning up when connected.
Run a demo and pull the only and clearly visible cable from the ex core to make the computer abruptly halt. But I’m quite we will never see that because there are not a single working unit. Because it’s simpler and far more easier to show us a working unit then it is for you to arrange a setup for a fake one. Yet you choose to take the tricky route. Which by itself only display the fact that there are not a working unit.

@Petter What we meant is that the cable is extremely thick and short that there’s no way to do what you claimed. We said it before. Please get your facts together, come with realistic numbers and please don’t forget to stop spamming our campaign. Thank you
Petter
Review from Kickstarter
I have not talked about the cable length.
Your reply is a classic non-denial denial. Answering a question I have never asked you. Read my point about the fake parts in your video.
Because by trying to fool your investors to believe you actually have working product to go to market with. You just managed the opposite. You revealed you have nothing but an empty shell and fake videos.

@Petter You practically make no sense... A passive TB3 cable must be at least 0.5m, and the look at the head conector it’s small enough to note is a 0.5m. Get your mind together and please go to bother someone else...

Review from Kickstarter
Why have you drilled a whole in the table to pull the thunderbolt cable through it and under the empty shell of the eX Core? Your poor video give you away! 1. The power supply is no where near a 90W power supply. 2. When you touch the case with your right hand it moves because it is empty and do not contain two PCBs, a copper heatsink and fan. 3. The Thunderbolt 3 cable which is supposed to connect the eX Core and computer does not move as as much as the case itself does. It should if it had a solid and physical connection to the PCB inside the case. 4. The "insertion" of the "power cable" into the non working and empty case is fake and does not connect properly. You barely places it in the connect position. Thunderbolt3 and USB-C cables make a solid click as it connects. Your don't. You have demonstrated a lot of creativity but no working product yet. If you want to show us your real authentic and working eX Core - feel free to run it without the top case of the eX Core to show the PCBs and working fan and connectors.
And shoot a film out of it in a honest way. Not this scam setup!

Review from Kickstarter
Hello Exklim! What is this you have on your page?
https://i.imgur.com/ReqGHAb.png
None of the organisations have any knowledge about participating, being a finalist and you have most certian never been rewarded.
http://www.chinagooddesignaward.com/online-exhibition/
http://www.idsa.org/ You have not invented any MXM card, the photos you show are COTS cards.
The Thunderbolt card is a stock Aikitio card and you have not shown non of those working together. The Canadian patent you state you have for an Inter connector is a fake as everything else:
41382768918761-1. There are no record of it at all. Mac drivers are fake.
Videos are fake.
Features like dual TB3 are not allowed by Intel and TB3 PD daisy chained likewise.
The photos and drawings are not valid because eGFX are end point systems.
There's no evidence of a Intel certification at all. So you do not have any rights to use the Intel and Thunderbolt graphics either. All you do seems to be promising something that appears to be nothing more then a scam. Please show us the opposite!
Please clear these things up!
Please do it now!

Review from Kickstarter
I’m pretty sure exklim will continue to delay every true evidence as long as possible. We will definitely not see anything before the pledge deadline have passed. Then they will talk a lot but never show us anything. Until they suddenly disappears with the money. This because they have stalled on everything regarding the most important things like Intel license and certification.
The fact that Intel do not allow 2x TB3 ports on a eGFX unit.
The fact that they will never be able to offer native macOS support with Nvidia graphics.
The fact that Intel do not allow Thunderbolt3 daisy chained power delivery. There’s nothing credible in this project. A few videos that never really show the important things as they are out of screen. They have several development units but refuses to show us or any respected publication or reviewer/blogger a test. Please show us. We want to see it. I want to buy it.

Review from Kickstarter
@exklim I really don't want to be a party pooper, but this video does not show me that the device on the table is actually being disconnected or connected as the camera inconveniently positions itself away from focusing what's important: Seeing the eX Core and the laptop connecting and disconnecting from each other with everything on screen. Same with the GTA V demonstrations, for all I know it could be pre-recorded video. Since you do have prototypes, have someone reputable review it and post it on their channel. Shouldn't be too hard to get a quick endorse. May I recommend two of my trusted reviewers: Dave 2D (also located in Canada)

Really Funny reply...
Is that hard to plug in your little tiny magic device together with NV 1050 hooked in device manager?
Do you have guts to show the device logged in Thunderbolt controller? How will WE KNOW WHAT ACTUAL DEVICE IS NEXT TO THE LAPTOP, perhaps, you are using the Razer Core, OR ANY OTHER DEVICE, OR YOU JUST PICK SOMEONE'S TB3 MAINBOARD AND PLUG IN THE DESKTOP 1050 THERE. IS THAT HARD FOR YOU TO PROOVE?

Review from Kickstarter
@kth, your English ability is much better than me. , that's exactly what I want to know.
1. project states the Core is better than Desktop 1050, , ( Video, PLEASE ! ) nO MORE SAYING THE " CLEAN " B.S.
2. they stated the exCore is able to have some performance in Bus Power, , ( Video Please ).
3. MacOS support, Never saw, since it stated it is " Natively Support " such a big lie....
Lee John
Review from Kickstarter
This is the most funny comment I ever saw until now.
so your clean video is that clean so we cannot see " Your working sample " plugged in?
Your unedited videos means not showing the benchmark, not compare with desktop, even not seeing a bus power mode plugged and test? * where's your MacOS support?
* where's your Buspower benchmark?
* where's your self power benchmark ? Bakers, this is scam.

Review from Kickstarter
I would also like to see a proper review of a prototype unit. The few videos on Youtube do not answer any questions on legitimacy. 1) would love to see the device manager/dxdiag on Windows or nvidia-smi/lspci on Linux
2) see the specs of the laptops used in the show case
3) unboxing and assembly of everything incl. the incl power supply & driver installation
3) generally a proper independent review on a reputable channel My pledge is here, so I would like you to understand that I'd like to see this product in my hands sometime soon. Please don't make me cancel it. ;)

is that called a review Video? let me tell you what that is, it is called, " FINAL CUT PRO" video.
Shall I tell /teach you what a review video is? Did you ever heard 9to5, Notebookcheck ? Do you ever heard them before? Please,
a video with benchmark in bus power/ self power.
A video of your Macbook MacOS with Nvidia 1050, If I were you, facing such challenges here, I will have 2 options.
a. Admit, I am a scammer.
b. provide the clear evidence, providing a no doubt video, providing a sample to a 9to5, Notebook check, egpu.io to review. Since you keep jumping away from ( b ), are you admitting you are ( a ) ?
So funny Exklim team..

Your response showing you are really not in the industry and apparently you " HAVE NOT " contacted with Inte.
It doesn't matter where your country is, it does matter with your submitted spec. Your spec is in the dream.
What the hell is the blockdiagram 3.1? We have intel License and we have Intel/Apple certification, and we have Intel developer account. we don't lie to customer, we don't do the over spec advertisement, and we don't do founding here, but what do you have? WHERE'S YOUR mac DRIVER?

Apologize but your deep lack of knowledge just proves the opposite.
We said it before and we’ll say it again.
We wouldn’t even be live if wasn’t for intel’s approval, specially for a canadian company. We have a strong CNDA in place with intel so we can’t discuss Plans, FW, Block Diagrams, Schematic, etc. A small tip for you, get a formal intel ID and this time don’t forget to present your project and get the right Block Diagram v3.1. Yours, exklim®

Review from Kickstarter
@Peter, you are right, TI65983 PWM is not able to have dynamic FW.
2nd, Exklim team had made a huge mistake, " Pre-Sell" a thunderbolt device BEFORE they got approval.
3rd, bus power eGPU is a dream, not enough power.
4th, Intel only allowed one device with one FIRMWARE, bus power for some TB3 travel Dock or self power for eGPU & multiports dock. @Philip,
Laptop dGPU FULL PERFORMANCE REQUIRED 55W WHEN IT REACHED TO PEAK. STANDBY MODE is 23W but no performance. A very simple math please.

@Petter Thanks for your assassment. I think is important that exklim will go through the certification process! As to Lee John. I think it funny that he does not answer for himself, as this is his main criticism about exclim. Yet if your belive is true... That would (imho) shed "a certain light" on Lee Johns engagement during this campaing. Best regards Phil

Will this work with HP Pavilion x360 ba016no?
Petter
Review from Kickstarter
Yes I believe mr Lee is a producer of Intel certified eGFX systems. That is why he have the knowledge of the technical demands and prerequisites of Intels thunderbolt3 certification process. For example Intel do not allow eGFX systems to be outfitted with dual thunderbolt3 ports for daisy chain.
EGFX systems are end point systems.
The way the power delivery works the power to the computer over usb c is set and static. It is not dynamic as I understand it.
So there is no dynamic routing of power to the eGFX card based on the charge state of laptop. Also Intel do not certify thunderbolt3 systems with daisy chained power delivery even though chip manufacturers like TI et al produce such. So that is a no-no. I really want this product but I only want it if it is certified by Intel.
But so far the current excore displayed on photos and in videos as a working sample do not meet Intels very strict rules in a single way. But I’m sure exklim team can clarify the confusion about 2 thunderbolt3 ports, us can power delivery and daisy chaining. As well as the certification process.
Because without a Go from Intel there is no product.

Review from Kickstarter
Oh, Lee John! I fogtot to tell you how I feel about the interview on noteboockeck.com. Quoting mself here as I allready said so in my message from April 26th: My guess: The exklim 1050 will deliver full power when connected to the external PSU, that comes with the card, but still will be able to play games quite well, when on battery (like the 1050 in my SFB2). exklim could have presented those informations in a clearer way, but anyone who knows how a notebook GPU throttles on battery should be able to comprehend that the exklim eGPU will work in the same way more or less. Best regards phila

https://www.notebookcheck.net/Exklim-s-CEO-answers-community-questions-about-the-eX-Core-external-GPU-during-interview-with-NotebookCheck.301564.0.html Guys, check this. Tell me how you feel.... To Exklim team:
Stop misleading PPL, Bus Power according to
1. Apple/Intel is only 13.5W, how do you say?
2. Internal Power consumption of Thunderbolt is more than 3.4W, you dont need to have TI 65983 for power management?
3. Intel will never approved your device in many ways, your device thermal, acoustic and power consumption is incorrect.--Already cross check with Intel.
4. Intel will never approved your device because you don't have Thunderbolt license,
5. there are still so many and you never answer any suspicious question. ...
