The Helium speaker charges in five minutes.
It plays for six hours at full volume. And it sounds amazing.
Using supercapacitors instead of traditional batteries, we're building the fastest-charging devices ever here in Portland - and with a rated lifetime of 500,000 charges, they'll keep charging fast for a long time.
We build open source hardware.
Our technology supports our values - so we want everyone to use it.
We are proving that great products don't make ethical compromises. We're using natural materials, super-efficient electronics and drivers, supercapacitors, and designs that can be upgraded and repaired, not thrown away.
Portable speakers are just the beginning - we are working on open-source projects in bicycle/outdoor electronics, solar power management, and even software...
We're moving from prototypes to production now.
All of our speakers are available for pre-order at CrowdSupply.com, the Portland-based e-commerce website. Our crowdfunding campaign there ended December 19th - we raised over $36,000!
We are currently finalizing our design, getting FCC certification, and building production units.
The speakers sold through our crowdfunding campaign will start shipping in February 2014, with new orders immediately following!
