It’s easy to remember all those times your device went dead at a crucial moment. Your eyes scrambling to spot an outlet. If you’re lucky, there is one. Luckier still, it’s actually available. (Good luck with that at an airport). Then it’s same ol’ plug in and wait. And those huge rechargeable battery packs? Yeah I’m sure you remembered to charge that too. You’re STILL WAITING. It’s 2015. C’mon. Nobody has time for that. Especially when you’re somewhere with limited, or zero access to power. Your device is dead. Your device to CHARGE your device is dead. Useless, double indemnity.
Think about it. It won’t take you long to remember the last time you could’ve really used JUCE. A night out, the big football game, your kids recital, golfing camping, skiing, during your last flight? Your battery depleting at a rate that rivals a punctured balloon. 30%, 20%, 10%, 1%…exactly.
There’s your moment…
Now, reach into your pocket for JUCE. There’s power in your pants.
Other chargers promise you LESS time waiting around for power, or they charge somewhat quickly… JUCE instantly delivers you ZERO wait time. JUCE is feather light and tiny, when you plug it in. It floats weightlessly from your phone or GoPro. It’s the simplest of solutions for power loss.
This is one of those FML situations!
There are a lot of unexplored parts of this country, and abroad. If you want to head out on adventure and keep yourself protected, JUCE is a paramount part of your travel kit. And for those emergencies back home, we all know survivors of major disasters when JUCE would’ve been the only available lifeline for power during an emergency.
Our adventurous team has been the perfect range of test marketers: Parents, outdoor lovers, travelers and just plain everyday phone users. We are voracious consumers of nature and beauty. We understand it’s imperative to protect and conserve the world, or there will be nothing left to explore and learn from it.
The JUCE Recycle Program is simple and quick. If you ever feel your JUCE isn’t performing to it’s best ability. Please go to recyclemyjuce.com or Scan the QR code to be quickly taken to our online form. Complete the form and return your used JUCE, you will receive a promo code for 1 new JUCE towards your next online purchase. We will then take your used JUCE and recycle the parts that can’t be reused. Then we will REJUCE it and donate it to a dedicated charity.
What we’ve done so far!
We want to distribute JUCE in those places you need it most! You won’t see us in Big Box retail selling these individually. We see opportunities in areas where you probably won’t have a charging cord with you. With our vending machine plan these will be available in bars. Being available to you at sporting events, concerts, on an airplane, ski resorts and many more is what we want to do. The second half of the plan is corporate branding. With our fully customizable wrap, you can pass on some positive energy to a potential client, handout at trade shows (we’ve all received a small charger as a gift with a logo on it, and they never come with a cord to actually charge anything!), or simply use them as business cards.
TOOLING PROTOTYPES BATTERIES AND MORE
TOOLING – With a 30k funding we can finish our tooling and we can make JUCE available via our website and begin reaching out to our identified areas of opportunity.
PROTOTYPES – We are using a 1000 mAh battery in our prototypes and for most phones this will give you up to 50% more battery life. Note that the “up to” is determined on how you use your phone while using your JUCE and what type of phone you have as well.
BATTERY LIFE – This is an important piece of our product. Our battery is guaranteed for a minimum of 1 year! So while that JUCE is waiting to be used in your glove box, you can feel safe knowing that your JUCE will hold its JUCE for 1 year.
RECHARGING – The recharge port will be located directly underneath the connector. We have also added an indicator light to showing the recharging status. Red will indicate that the JUCE is being charged. Green will indicate your JUCE is ready to go!
VENDING MACHINES – What you need, WHERE & WHEN you need it! With 50k we can make our vending machines stocked full of JUCE and available to you any time any where.
– Concert and Festivals
– Amusement parks
– Golf Courses
– Ski resorts
Corporate Branding – Put some real energy behind your name or company brand by customizing your JUCE to meet your needs.

Risks and challenges
RISKS AND CHALLENGES
The easy simplicity of the product is in our favor. We’ve been working closely with the manufacturer to iron out any potential kinks and so far, so smooth.
Your backing massively speeds up production while ensuring our standards are on point.
We are moving fast and focused with our manufacturer. We will keep you posted on developments, fantastic to frustrating, we will let you know!
It should be clear; We are very into instant energy.
We want to move now!
Without the funding, it’s going to take a fair bit longer. We use JUCE. We LOVE em’. We want a ton of them ready as soon as possible. The warmth of spring and summer for everyone is deliciously closing in. Coachella and every other music festival are ramping up. Summer is beckoning with her beautiful long days and open road. Activities galore.
Funding will get those JUCE’y babes into your hands, glove box, back packs, emergency kits, clutch, surfboard bag, or just your plain ol’ front pocket as quickly as we can!
We cannot express to you how much we appreciate your support in spreading positive JUCE energy throughout the world. Our phones are documenting the story of our life… Let’s make it a good one!
