At this point, we would like to point out that when financing a crowdfunding project, there is no guarantee that you will receive the supported product with certainty. You invest in a project and therefore in a company, but you have no guarantee that the project will be implemented.
Jumpi 3 in 1: Universal solution for the car?
Jan would like to take his new flame, which he has just got to know, out on a second date. He is correspondingly nervous and doesn’t want to leave anything to chance. He has bought gladiolas (which seemed less obtrusive to him than roses), put on his freshly ironed shirt and reserved a table with the finest Italian in town.
When he opens the passenger door of his car to put the flowers down, he notices with shock that the passenger seat is still full of muffin crumbs. Jan has a little sweet tooth. To make matters worse, his old Prius won’t start anymore. He can’t tell his new flame that he might pick her up a little later. His cell phone battery is empty again, of course, after he had nervously played Polytopia all day.
Hey Jan, have you met Jumpi?
Jumpi is a multifunctional handheld vacuum cleaner that fits in the glove compartment at 36.0 x 8.0 x 7.5 cm. According to the Kickstarter campaign, it weighs only 0.78 kg and is therefore easy to handle.
The functionality of a wireless handheld vacuum cleaner doesn’t need any further explanation, but rather that of the “Jumpstarter”, the integrated starting aid for the car battery. Since I don’t drive a car too often myself, I have already had the situation twice that my car just wouldn’t start after too long standing time without movement. Normally, one cannot give oneself a jump start, for this one needs either another car (“donor car”), a breakdown service or a battery charger. The Jumpi combines the latter 3 in 1.
When the battery charger is fully charged, Jumpi allows up to ten “jumps” (hence the name), i.e. ten attempts at jump starting with 700 amps each. The operation of the device is said to be simple and safe, but any manufacturer would probably claim that and cannot be judged at a distance.
And there is also the use as a power bank. Via USB you can charge your smartphone and the like while driving. Of course you need the appropriate (smartphone) charging cable yourself. Like any powerbank, Jumpi’s battery needs to be recharged after use.
The project is already fully financed, but it is still possible to secure and co-finance a device. The advantage: Jumpi will cost 150$ after the end of the crowdfunding campaign. So with the early-bird support you can save over $50 at the market price and get the product as one of the first ever.
Crowdfunding always carries a certain risk. But here, the amount to be paid for the device is within a manageable range, so that one can definitely try one’s luck. Provided, of course, that one is interested in the product. Personally, I am flirting with the HaierTab Tabot vacuum robot, which will be affordable in April.
