Dimensions of pocket section: 8″x 4.5″ (20 cm x 11.5 cm). The pocket will fit most popular phones on the market, including the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G3, Nexus 6 and HTC One.
Waist belt: Tri-glide length adjustment, side-release buckle closure. Adjusts from approximately 22.5″ (57 cm) to 39″ (99 cm) with about 3″ (7.5 cm) extra stretch from elastic on the sides.
Lights: Efficient LED light panel. Each panel is a polymer piece that is highly light transmitting. There is an LED at each end, so not much power is required and almost no heat is generated. There are 3 light settings: Continuous, Slow Flash and Rapid Flash.
Construction: Nylon and polyester construction, nylon waistbelt with elastic sides for snug fit, water-resistant outer zippers.
Weight: Battery and pack together: approximately 10 ounces.
External battery (BSEEN BOOST ONLY – NOT AVAILABLE IN BSEEN BASIC PERKS): Power: 4000 mAh. Dimensions: 120mm x 65mm x 9mm. Weight: 5.6 oz. Runs lights 120-180 hours or provides a full charge to a smartphone, or a combination of the two. Charges with micro-USB.
We are also offering a lower cost BSEEN pack. All features and specifications are the same as the regular BSEEN, but without a backup battery pack. This means you cannot charge your phone using the pack, but you will have a little more storage and a little less weight (the total weight of the pack will be approximately 5oz). The lights are just as awesome, and will last 4-6 hours between charges. The battery is easily recharged via cable.
LED Slap Bands
Some of our special early bird perks come with LED slap bands. Wear them on your wrists, forearms or ankles while walking, running or cycling to help you BSEEN. The slap bands have two modes: continuous and flashing. Available colors include neon green, neon orange, neon pink and red. Choose your slap band colors at the end of the campaign.
Why we are crowdfunding
We are crowdfunding as a way to bring new and better products to market faster. We are a manufacturer so we already have the factories to make our product so we are able to develop products quickly and efficiently. We are also crowdfunding so that we can afford to create mass quantities of packs. This requires having a mold cut for the polymer piece that transmits light, and building up our inventory.
We are also looking to the potential users of our product to provide feedback so that we can improve and refine our current solution. We want to make the best, highest quality, and safest lighted pack possible, and the input of the public will make this goal attainable. We are also able to offer the best prices possible during the campaign, as a thank you to our buyers who are helping to support our development and refine our product.
Ming D&Y Inc. is a California-based company that is actively involved in designing, developing, manufacturing and marketing LED lighted safety sporting goods. We already produce LED slap armbands, LED sporting belts, and many other lighted products.
Risk and challenges
Because we are manufacturers, having this product made is very low risk for us. We have a factory that already can make our product, so we won’t need the time and effort that a crowdfunding campaign typically requires in this stage.
There are a few things we still have to consider. Currently, the polymer that transmits light is created by cutting from an extruded piece. To mass produce the BSEEN, we will need a mold. We still need to cut and test the mold, which will take some time. We also need to ensure the polymer is clear enough to transmit light from a distance. We don’t think this will be a big roadblock for us, but it could potentially effect our timeline.
