It's All About Power!
We need more power!
In today’s technological world we are expected to always be in communication with our business associates, friends and family. We can no longer be without power at any time. Low cell phone power is no fun. It can mean cutting calls short, closing background programs in an effort to conserve power, wishing I had my charger (and of course a wall plug). For many of us it is the knowing you are about to run out of power that is more stressful then the actual loss of power. With Power Gear you are never without power.
Power Gear offers more than just the ability to recharge your phone. Our new interchangeable lighting concept delivers the same brightness that you find in LED hats on the market today but also offers you the ability to exchange it for a much brighter LED (3 Watt) that projects a true flashlight beam.
INFRARED lights make it possible to restrict most cameras (like cell phone cameras and many others) from taking your picture. Power Gear's Infrared lights are designed to block facial recognition algorithms in use by many of today’s cameras. The infrared light cannot be seen by the human eye, so there is no concern about blinding every person you look at. When seen on camera, the subject emits bright white light from their faces.
POWER GEAR HAS THE SOLUTION!
CHARGE MANY DEVICES
APPLE PRODUCTS * ANDROID PHONES * ALL SMART PHONES
GPS DEVICES * MUSIC PLAYERS * ANY USB POWER DRIVEN DEVICE!
Each hat comes with our uniquely designed charge controller that has only 1 USB port (not 2 like all the other portable chargers). We have designed the single port technology so you can use the same USB port that charges your phone to also recharge the hat. You can use any existing USB chargers that were provided to you with your cell phone or your other portable devices. We have simplified the technology so that you can always find replacement adapters in the open market if you lose one.
- The average consumer owns 6 different chargers.
- Most chargers are not very “portable”, you often times need something else to carry them in.
- Chargers are unstylish, bulky and easy to forget.
NEVER BE WITHOUT POWER AGAIN!
POWER GEAR IS RECHARGEABLE & IS SUSTAINABLE ENERGY
LIGHTWEIGHT & COMFORTABLE
Our hat fits and feels like a normal hat because we use lightweight flexible Polymer Li-ion rechargeable batteries that are built into the brim. Each hat has 1,000 mAh battery charging capacity. These flexible batteries are designed so that the user can still bend and form the brim of the cap to their desired look (we are all so funny when it comes to our hats).
Everything you need to charge your phone is always with you!

POWER GEAR VALUE
WHY PAY $80.00 FOR THIS

THE POWER GEAR COST: $45.00
WHY PAY $120.00 FOR THIS

REMEMBER IT'S RECHARGEABLE!
Our hats are rechargeable so you do not have to buy the expensive coin type batteries that are found in other lighted hats. This will save you around $15.00 every time you have to replace the batteries.
I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT!
HOW TO USE OUR HAT AT NIGHT
NEVER BE WITHOUT LIGHT
Hidden Attachable lights fit smoothly in sweatband of cap.
Just plug it in when you want light!
We have always believed that a hat should look like a hat and not a novelty piece. Power Gear's technology is hidden inside the hat so as not to ruin the appearance of the hat.
We found that the only way to have a great looking hat and also have the best light was to re-invent the clip-on technology. So, we created the worlds smallest adjustable LED mini-light units, including the mini 3 LED unit with three 5mm sized LED’s, the 1 Watt LED unit and the 3 Watt LED unit.
HOW BRIGHT ARE THEY?
The world’s smallest and most powerful LED light units
Our interchangeable plug-in light units deliver the power you need for any application.
Red- Good for preserving night vision, no night blindness
Green- Great for tracking animal’s blood, great for hunting
Ultra Violet- Good for night fishing, leak finding (automotive) and sanitary
compliance (check out your hotel room)
Infrared Light- Blocks most cameras from taking your picture, has no visible light to the human eye.
Shutter happy people taking your picture without your permission?
In this day and age, you’re likely to have a hard time walking down the street and not seeing a camera somewhere. Use our INFRARED technology and take back your privacy.
INFRARED lights makes it possible to restrict most cameras (like cell phone cameras and many others) from taking your picture. The lights are designed to block facial recognition algorithms in use by many of today’s cameras. The LED’s can’t be seen by human eyes, so you wouldn’t be blinding every person you look at. When seen on camera, the subject emits bright white light from their faces.
Note: that there are "Infrared Cameras" and more advanced "Security Cameras" that will not be effected by the Infrared light. Our "INFRARED" Technology was designed for personal privacy and is not intended for criminal use.

MORE THEN JUST HATS
We have already designed other wearable technology that will have charging
capabilities as well as other innovative technology that can do more than just
power your devices. Power Gear is a concept based on wearable technology; the"Power Gear" stores will be a leader when it comes to innovation in this high tech world of ours.
WHO WE ARE
We have had years of experience in making LED technology into hats, we have been the exclusive producer and supplier of LED Lighted hat technology for 10 years to a number of companies in the US (Totes/Isotoner, Outdoor Cap, NRG Products, Northern Cap & Glove and more). These companies have been selling our older technology to countless retailers, promotional companies and direct business to business for many years. Perhaps you have seen our older technology in retailers like Eddie Bauer, REI, Cabela's, Bass Pro, Lowes, Kohl’s, Sears, JC Penny, Walmart, Pet Smart and many more.
We have developed the Power Gear with the same factoriesthat we have always used. We have offices in Hong Kong and Mainland China, and a staff that remains dedicated in overseeing the same production efficiency and quality we have been delivering over the years.
HOW FAR ALONG ARE WE
All the tools and designs are complete for the basic hat style; all the
technology has been tested and is in 100% working order. We are now developing additional tools to make some of the other types of hat styles with flat brim as well as knit beannies and caps. In addition we are developing other products that can incorporate this same technology as well as wireless technology, Bluetooth, GPS locaters, and other attachable devices. We have also filed for Multiple US Patents that go beyond just our hats.
WHAT WE NEED
For many years we have been the suppliers of the LED lighted hat technology, now we would like to sell our "Power Gear" concept to a few selected retailers and direct to consumer by way of our kiosk retail program in multiple locations.
We have decide to go direct to consumer with the kiosk because the
Power Gear concept has all the right ingredients to be successful. Our Goal is to open 2 locations in March 2014 (walk before we run), and plan to have 10 locations in by November 2014. We plan to open an additional 20 to 30 stores a year and are considering the idea of franchising. With your help you can make the "Power Gear" shops a reality.
To open a kiosk it will take around $15,000 per store. We need a little additional funding to ensure we can open the 2 locations by MARCH 2014. The amount of money raised in this campaign will determine how many more locations we can open in November.
It may not sound like much but we are doing all we can to help get people employed. In being able to open our retail stores we will be putting people to work, not just part time but creating careers in the long run.
Other Ways You Can Help
