February Update (with pictures!)

Tuesday we started assembly, and we want to show you some pictures and videos of the final product as well as how things are going. We’re super excited to finally be at this stage of our journey and we are happy that you gave us the opportunity to pursue this dream. 

We cannot wait to ship these products out to you guys, which is probably going to be somewhere around early March.

Here are some pictures!

Delivery date

We expect to deliver by early March. We are getting up to speed and the assembly process is becoming faster and faster. If you have any changes to your address (after the survey) please send an email to emil@envavo.com and we will change it before shipping.

Final words

As this might be the final update before you receive your products we want to take a few seconds to just say thank you. We know we are late, and we know it’s been longer than anyone expected. This is our baby, it’s what we have been working hard on every single day for two and a half years to make a reality. This project truly became more to us than just delivering products of high quality that would make your lifes just a little better. It has become so much more – we have learned tons of things about development, production, and everything that comes with starting up a company. It became an achievement that many did not believe we would accomplish but yet here we are, soon at the end of the road, and we are filled with joy just thinking about that we can soon deliver to each and everyone of you.

None of this could have happened without you and your belief in our product when we launched on Kickstarter and pre-orders here on our website!

Thanks guys!!

Best wishes,

Mads & Emil, Envavo

January Update

It’s time for an update, one that has been requested a lot in the past days so we are excited to share this month’s update with you all!

The reason we have been waiting a bit with the update was because we had a meeting with our plastics supplier and we went to confirm the final plastic parts, which is the biggest part about finishing up production.

Production

We have received everything from our suppliers from all over the world, and everything is now in Denmark ready to be assembled. This includes all electrical and non electrical parts, metals and everything. We’re super satisfied with the high quality of all the components and we now see that the hard work leading up to choosing the right partners has been worth it. We would not have a product of such high standards if it wasn’t for all the work that went into choosing the right production partners and suppliers.

What we are working on right now

The only thing we are currently waiting for is the final accept on the injection molds. We visited our plastics supplier this Saturday and everything was looking really sharp and he informed us that once he receives the injection molds from the mold supplier he will get the plastics to look even better, which is hard to believe because it already looks great.

All we need now is one final detail that he informed us will take around 45 minutes to change for the mold supplier, and then we can have the injection molds shipped to Denmark where we will produce the plastics. We expect this process (including shipping) to take 14 days and then we will produce the plastics which will take 1 day. Once this has concluded we are ready to assemble the first batch.

Images of the plastics & time-line

Below are some images of the plastics as they look right now, ready to be assembled.

These pictures are obviously of non assembled plastic bodies, without what’s inside. This was just to showcase the actual plastics and the high quality that it is made of. This is by far the final step before assembly, and we believe we have found the right partner to do this job properly so the quality remains extraordinary.

Assembly

We have prepared for assembly while production has been concluding and we have optimized everything possible so we can assemble the first batch as quickly as possible, since we know you are all eager to receive the products. We too are eager to send them!

We expect assembly to take roughly 10 days and after this we’ll be able to ship the products out for all of you who pre-ordered the product.

Product Testing

We have spent a lot of time testing with the new components and plastics to ensure the product still lives up to the two most crucial features we presented on Kickstarter: You should not burn your hands from a slight touch and you should have warm hands at all times when playing or working at your desktop computer.

We can conclude that both features have been met. We did a 14 hour test and the product never got so hot that it was untouchable and the hands were warm all the time, even considering the very cold weather outside.

Expected Shipping

To ensure shipping goes smoothly we have partnered up with the leading Danish shipping company, so we’ll make sure the service you get will be great as well as the time from shipment to you actually receiving the products will be as short as possible.

We currently expect to deliver by the end of February, which gives us 14 days to finish and receive the injection molds and 10 days to finish the assembly and then 14 days to finalize the shipments and send them out to you. We see this as a very realistic timeline including some buffers in the different steps.

We are thankful for your patience and we seriously cannot wait to ship these really “cool” products out to you.

Best wishes,

Mads & Emil from Envavo
