    My bad, this is first I've heard of it and there were no other posts in this sub about it when I did a search.

    Isn't this the one from the people who don't even have a prototype unit yet?

    The estimated delivery is August. I don't know if it's always been August, but the article also mentions that the company claims to have finished R&D and prototyping.

    I smell scam, indiegogo is for people who can't even meet the low requirements of kickstarter.

    Seems legit to me, but it's just a portable charger in a non-traditional form factor. Not something incredibly new or innovative.

    There's a shallow mindset if I've ever seen one.

    A battery case for the Switch, which is made by a manufacturer with no prior experience, plans to deliver in August... Still no prototype btw.

    Sounds like at best you might get some sort of fire hazard mailed to you in a couple years, and at worst they'll just take your money and run.

    If you want one you should be getting the Nyko one, legit company, their device is cheaper, and no risk cause you'll definitely be getting the product you paid for.

    There's a naive mindset if I've ever seen one.

    I'm waiting for reviews before even going near it. I still don't believe in the product.

    EDIT: Also, Indiegogo is the new favorite place of people with no clue. Since they don't demand any prototypes.
    All the images of the "product" are just a 3D printed case, looks really flimsy at best.
