Additionally, Vibrollie offers four levels of intensity, which you can control using the soft button in the center. The foam design makes it comfortable to use while its compact size makes it suitable for travel. Furthermore, Vibrollie runs for up to seven hours on a single charge if you use it on level one.

Vibrollie Vibrating Fitness Roller
I'm not sure, I haven't used the Vulken so can't speak to the quality of the battery and materials used. Our product is retailed at $150 but the point was to sell them under $100 and make it affordable for people. That is why we set up our campaign at $75 per Vibrollie until we hit our goal.
So the 4th level of vibration and a $150 retail instead of $199? Ok, I can see the advantage of that but then the Vulken comes along and provides both for less than $99 retail (and is available now it seems) and pushes you both (at least temporarily) out of the game...For us Backers, this kinda landscape is a bit of a nightmare; we never know who are actually "inventing" things, have exclusive (or more-likely, semi-exclusive) rights to introduce/produce and/or market them or which start-up to trust with our hard-earned$$..From Toilet-lights to electric-skateboards, E-bikes to smartwatches, in almost every product category Backers risk everything from countless re-marketers and false-claims, misappropriated designs/graphics and sub-par products not to mention the vaporware and stolen funds....it's a veritable WildFreakin'West...
The main difference is we had 4 levels of vibration, the added level being a more intense level designed for larger muscle groups. The second was the price point. Our goal was to provide something that was much more affordable but still provided a great experience for people.
Ok so i was actually pretty-much dead-on except that you say HyperIce wasn't patent-pending...Sematics at best given the actuality of what has transpired but OK, I'll bite. What's the actual difference between the Vibrollie and the long-been-released HyperIce Vyper (which, it turns out, in actual use isn't all that great of a device itself)?
Chance, that's a good guess but not quite our reality. Our manufacturers released our exact product to the market after going through the design process with them last July which we did to save money on having to go through the prototyping process. I did not have a design patent or agreement with them- big lesson learned. It appears that our product is now selling on Amazon which I had no control over. In addition, one of our competitors is threatening legal repercussions for trademark infringement which is not the same as patent pending and is really a bullying tactic used to push startup companies out of the market. At this time, Vibrollie is on hold until I can determine a workable strategy to compete in the marketplace. The goal was not to hock a product already in full production, but unfortunately that's the turn it took. We wanted to create something unique and raise funds to create our own line of vibrating foam rollers. We apologize for the inconvenience.
So lemme guess: You guys got suspended for hocking a product that is already in full production, one that you didn't invent or have exclusive rights to and one that also happens to be a very close copy of the patent-pending HyperIce Vyper? Nice job guys... -_-
No problem we understand! To change the speed setting you simply press the power button. Press it once to initiate the first speed, twice for second, three times for the third, and four times for the fourth. The fifth time switches it off. So you have to cycle through it to turn it off. The transition is very smooth. The USB port is on the other side of the roller. You are correct about the Adaptor, I meant the plug itself. For Australia we will provide the three prong power plug, for the US it will be the two prongs, etc. At this point I do not foresee any setbacks to shipping date and delivery. We have been working on the USB version for some time now and have been in constant communication with our manufacturer.
Thanks for your replies. The Kickstarter backers have to look out for each other, so it is best for any exchanges relating to the product to be aired publicly. So, in your update showing the USB charged Vibrollie, how do you change the speed setting, where is the USB port for charging something other than the Vibrollie, and what use is a 110/220 adaptor when a common USB will do the job. If this the USB version is a prototype then how long more do you need to add on to the shipping date to deliver this?
Hey guys thanks for the feedback. I just posted an exciting update revealing the newest version of Vibrollie that will be sent to each backer. We hope you love it!
Very excited to back this project. I've used vibrating foam rollers before and the benefits are unreal! This price is AMAZING and I can't wait!!
***I am using it to improve my posture!
Demoed it a few weeks ago and can't speak enough great things about it. After one day of using it after my first half marathon, my muscles were not sore in the slightest. I am not using it to help improve my posture for my upcoming wedding! LOVE.
If you go on Amazon you will see a lot of similar rollers, even Hyperice's version 1 was similar to this roller. Manufacturing over seas can be tricky. We are learning that first hand. These manufacturers are producing a similar product but there are big differences with density of the foam as well as quality of the battery. Our Vibrating fitness roller looks similar to those as far as design, but the end product that will be delivered to you will be much higher quality. The Vibrollie rollers for example will have an upgraded battery that charges through a usb port and will have indicators to show you when the battery is full unlike the one on Amazon.
Amazon shows the exact same looking vibrating foam roller as yours down to the pink speckled foam. Also 4 speed modes. Price is about $69. https://www.amazon.com/Vibrating-Exercise-Recovered-Vibration-Technology/dp/B06XY22J2T/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top… How do you show that you are not rebadging an existing product and marking it up for Kickstarter?
I talked to my manufacturers and we will be able to support 110 V - 240 V. Also, we are highly considering a USB option which will eliminate that problem completely. Either way, we won't let you down! We will make sure that all of our backers have compatible adapters.
Thanks for the replies. It would seem that the adaptor is not compatible with my location Australia where it is 220V.
Hi Gadgetstorm, Right now its through a wallwart adaptor that is 110 V. However, we are looking at newer models and batteries that are charged by USB which should be more efficient. We are confident we should have those ready for backers by the end of the campaign. We are constantly trying to make improvements to the roller. The battery capacity is around 7 hours of usage on the lowest vibration setting. I tested out the ones we had, left it on high speed for 5 hours and it still had a charge. If there are any issues with the battery we plan on having a 1 year warranty where we can replace the foam roller and return the battery to our manufacturer. Everyone who backs us will fall under that 1 year warranty. Right now we get the materials from China using the same process that German manufacturers use ( who we looked at as well). The material is Polypropylene foam. The hope is that once we get funding we can bring this process to the US. From the testing we have done, this foam has performed best. Its firm but has enough give to make it comfortable. Thank you for inquiring, please let me know if you have additional questions! Warm Regards, The Vibrollie Team
Is it charged via USB or a wallwart adaptor? If the latter, is it 110 or 220 V? What is the battery capacity and warranty period? Can the battery be changed if it wears out? Where is the foam made and what is it made of?
