Packing all of the necessary tech for a trip can quickly turn to a tangled mess of cords and devices that takes up too much space. A new startup company is offering a sleek package of active noise cancelling earphones, Bluetooth receiver, portable battery, built in chargers, and a speaker that can all magnetically snap into one very portable item. It’s called Polatap and it’s currently being funded on Kickstarter. With more than a month of its campaign left, Polatap has already met its goal.
This new travel kit is a completely modular set of Bluetooth audio and charging products. It uses a 9-pin magnetic system that has active noise cancelling features. Since it snaps together so easily, it makes it virtually impossible to lose any of the components while traveling. Also, you don’t have to worry about carrying extra accessories to support the Polatap system. Everything needed to connect and charge are included and fit neatly in the carrying case.
The Bluetooth receiver has the power and controls to provide the active noise cancelling technology, and it is transmitted to the earphones with a 3.5mm audio connection.
When packing for a trip, we want to bring useful products that don’t take up too much space in our luggage. Only the necessary things that will help make our trip more enjoyable. But with increasing number of devices we own, our luggage only seems to be getting heavier and more cluttered. Introducing Polatap Traveler Kit, a Bluetooth Audio and Battery total solution for travelers.
Here’s a closer look at why Polatap is so convenient for travelers:
- You can use your favorite wired headphones wirelessly with the Bluetooth powered system
- Or, if you prefer, you can use the included ultra-light active noise cancelling earphones
- You also have many connectivity options such as Lightning, Micro-USB and USB-C are all supported
- Even if you want to listen to music without earphones, the set has one of the smallest Bluetooth speakers with a 3W driver has up to 24 hours of playtime.
- The Polatap products can all be safely stored in its carrying pouch allowing for added portability and convenience while on-the-go.
A pledge of $79 or more will get you your own Polatap kit from the Kickstarter campaign. With your donation, you’ll get the complete kit, including: earphones, Bluetooth receiver, battery hub cable kit, speaker block, and of course the carrying Case, which is $120 off the expected retail value.
November 6, 2017 – After 2 years of preparation, the New York founded tech startup POLATAP will launch at the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter on November 6th. Already gaining traction with interviews in Times Square New York and Hong Kong Electronics Fair, we take a look at the company’s first product.
Earphones, portable battery, a speaker, charging cables, and a pouch are essentials that you need when traveling. The size, weight, and the shear number of these things make it easy to misplace, but their concept combines all of this into one, which sounds very convenient. It’s not cheap considering its retail price of $199. However, for their Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, they plan to have a Super Early Bird price of only $79.
Common limitations of Kickstarter projects include a long wait period for the actual shipping to customers, as well as many caveats in wether the production will be successful or not. However, POLATAP’s backers have no such worries, and therefore gathering even more attention and love from the audience. Their first batch of the earphones and Bluetooth receiver is beginning on December and will be delivered before Christmas. And their plan to share the production process as well as resources on shipping preparation definitely helps to build a trust.
This is POLATAP, a product that makes traveling effortless which would also be just as useful in consumers’ everyday lives. Their crowdfunding campaign POLATAP can be found on Kickstarter.
