We hate messy breadboards and oversized power supplies



We believe it shouldn’t be this way, so we came up with Flatpower



Flatpower is a very thin and portable power supply that integrates with breadboards seamlessly. It’s capable of supplying 5V and 3.3V at 1A directly to the power rails of the breadboard. It is powered via USB port with a micro-USB cable or with an external battery.





Features


Portable 

It is seriously small. We personally like to leave it attached to the breadboard when we put it away.

Versatile

It’s designed to be powered with a micro-USB cable or with a 6 - 9V battery for outdoors. People find it convenient since they always carry around a Micro USB cable for their smartphones.

Safe

The design protects your USB ports by cutting-off power in case of a short circuit or current draw excess. Most of the cheap alternatives don’t take this into account!

Risks and challenges


Since we're using fixed funding, your money will be returned in case of not reaching the goal. It's either a high quality product or nothing, so no worries about that! 

We're confident that the delivery process will be a success. However, this is our first crowdfunding experience and one of the things we don't have much experience in is delivery logistics. We'll be asking for advice from the best!
