Production Update #4 – June 8th

(originially posted on kickstarter on June 8-th)

 

As announced in our last update, we needed to find a new supplier for the magnetic connector, that wirelessly charges the AirPods Max while on the Max Stand. We have looked into three viable options, and have now determined the best option to move forward. The connector we are going with has a different size than the previously planned one, therefore we need to adjust the top part of the stand, and also the base plate. You as a backer will hardly notice the changes, the stand will still work exactly the same, and look nearly the same as in the project pictures and videos. The stand will have 1 mm added to the total height, and we had to change the construction inside the stand.

 

We are still finalizing some details with our production partner, to ensure that there is not a showstopper yet again. This includes getting new samples, incorporating those into updated 3D prints and testing the new prototypes. Only after we have completed these steps can we get the new injection mold made. As we have mentioned in the comments, the mold is very expensive, and we have to ensure to get it right this time.

 

We are not able to provide a shipping date with reasonable confidence yet, but we’ll provide updates on the production steps as they progress, so you’ll be in the loop on progress. To give an indication, the critical path in production is the top part, which is injection molded. It can take up to 6 weeks to get the new mold made, but we hope we can get it faster than that. When the mold is done, the top part will be immediately produced. Since we have a small number of units by modern production standards, making the actual parts should be relatively quick. On a good note, all other parts are fine so far and are produced in parallel, so that they are ready for assembly when the new top parts are done. The same applies for the packaging.

 

Sorry again for this delay, we keep moving steadily forward in the production process, unfortunately not as swiftly and smoothly as we would have hoped.
