Sarvi smartphone dock, MAGNO INK pen, GoSun Go solar stove, and more – Notable crowdfunding campaigns

This week I’m bringing you five crowdfunding campaigns that include four products introduced on Kickstarter and one project that is running on Indiegogo. Click through to read more details about these five crowdfunded products.

Sarvi Dock. Designed for Apple and Android devices.

blurb by Andy Jacobs

What is it?
A simple, sleek, minimalist design dock for smartphones and tables with tons of versatility and adaptability.

Why do I like them?
The main reason (among several) that I like it: Sarvi Dock claims to be compatible with “every possible combination of smartphones/tablets with protective cases and docks available.” Every? Well, it claims to fit the likes of Lifeproof, Otterbox, Catalyst, Apple, Spigen, Mophie, and many more. Its elegant “S”-shaped back with soft-touch coating provides solid support for your phone and its design allows unobstructed use of your phone’s speakers as well as audio jack while docked. Its Cable Connect System includes three easily-to-swap connector adapters that cover the vast majority of phones and tablets: Apple Lightning, Micro USB a, d USB C. It’s compatible with wireless charging pads, has a landscape mode and can act as a USB thumb drive reader as well. Finally, it comes with Sarvi Valet, a small stand that holds the unused Cable Connect adapters and the Landscape Kit. Is there a downside to the Sarvi Dock? I haven’t found one yet. I’m excited about this one.

Where can I find more info?
The Kickstarter campaign is in full swing and will end December 1, so there is still time to become a backer. As of this writing, the campaign still has 32 days to go and already achieved over $19,000 of its $20,000 pledging goal. Pledge package pricing starts at $28 for a single early bird Sarvi Dock and increases from there. Estimated delivery is March 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

Bento Stack for Apple Accessories

What is it?
The Bento Stack is a stackable storage system for cables, chargers, USB flash drives, adapters, wireless headphones, Apple Pencil, Apple Watch bands and other gear that you want to keep organized.

Why do I like them?
I like the Bento Stack because it helps keep all your “stuff” neat and tidy instead of a mess at the bottom of your gear bag. I have used small zippered pouches to keep my gear organized, but the Bento Stack looks like a nice alternative to pouches because you can arrange the storage compartments on your desk when you’re using the gear allowing you to see all the items. Pouches aren’t quite that useful.

MAGNO INK: The World’s Most Intelligent Magnetically Energised Pen.

What is it?
MAGNO INK is an ink pen made of aluminum that uses Neodymium magnets to retract and extend the writing tip.

Why do I like them?
Because magnets! The MAGNO INK pen looks like a nice EDC pen that can accept popular D1 style refills. The magnetic mechanism means you don’t have to worry about losing the cap. It has been designed so it won’t roll off your desk and it also looks like a fun fidget toy.

Universal 3.0 Credit Card EDC Multi Tool 60+ Tools in One.

What is it?
The Universal 3.0 is a multi-tool that has over 60 tools but is compact enough to store in your wallet or pocket.

Why do I like them?
I like the Universal 3.0 because it offers a wide variety of tools from wrenches and screwdrivers which are common for multi-tools, to the not so common axe, protractor, sundial clock and compass, and much more.

Where can I find more info?
The Universal 3.0 campaign ends in 15 days and they have already met their funding goal of $5,000. You can pre-order a Universal 3.0 starting at $23. After the Universal 3.0 campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in February 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

GoSun Go: Boil Water and Cook Meals with Solar Power

What is it?
The GoSun Go is a portable stove that uses the power of the sun to cook your food and boil/sterilize water.

Why do I like them?
I’ve talked about GoSun products before, but this new product is smaller and much easier to take with you on your adventures. The GoSun Go gives you the ability to cool food using no fuel (wood) or batteries. All you need is the sun even if it’s cloudy and cold.

Where can I find more info?
The GoSun Go campaign ends in 23 days and has already reached their funding goal of $10,000. You can pre-order a GoSun Go starting at $99. After the GoSun Go campaign ends, rewards are estimated to start shipping in April 2018. Visit their Kickstarter page for all the details.

    Think you meant “cooks” food, not “cool” food in the GoSun Go: Boil Water and Cook Meals with Solar Power why you like it.
