A new modular accessory maker called Zolo is launching a 30-day crowdfunding campaign today through Indiegogo to help launch their new product ecosystem. Zolo’s accessories include cases, portable battery packs, and smartphone cases for the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S5.
What makes Zolo’s products different is the use of magnets in each accessory (the company says these magnets do no harm your devices). All of Zolo’s accessories snap together to eliminate having to deal with loose cables and dangling battery packs. The company even offers cable clips to bring your existing cables into the Zolo ecosystem.
Early bird funding prices for Zolo’s products range from $13 to $35 with the power and protection pack shown above going for just $18 (not a bad price for a battery pack, case, charging cable, and cable clips). Zolo says their strategy for building a successful accessory ecosystem includes shipping products directly to consumers and skipping the markup required by retailers. Check out details for the power and protection pack as well as a video demo below and visit Zolo’s site and Indiegogo to help fund the campaign…
For the initial launch, Zolo will price the first core pack of products at $18 for the first 24 hours. The suite will include:
● Zolo 1x Battery: adds one full battery charge to most smartphones ● Zolo Short Cable: magnetically wraps around Zolo 1x Battery for secure transport ● Zolo Cable Clip: clips to existing cables for magnetic system integration ● Zolo Tough Case System: slim, military-grade protection for smartphones; Zolo Impact Screen Protector protects smartphones from drops of up to 2 meters
