Power Practical blazes the portable power trail with its newest innovation, Pronto, raising over $50,000 in under five hours
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – Pronto is the fourth funded project for Power Practical. This newest backup battery has been designed to store the full power needed for a smartphone charge in under five minutes, making it the fastest in history. The company has successfully turned to crowd-funding three times prior, with the PowerPot, Practical Meter and PowerPot X. Renowned tech mogul, Mark Cuban, also turned an ear to Power Practical’s business plans, during a Shark Tank appearance, with Cuban now serving as an invested partner in the brand.
Currently exceeding $234,000, the Pronto is well on its way to production in November. The project has reached 400% of its original goal, with the $50,000 mark being passed in just under five hours. Just over a week after launching this fastest charging backup battery in existence, Power Practical has generated an exorbitant amount of interest from consumers worldwide looking to finally get a charge in lightning speed.
“We set out two years ago to change the world of portable power and technology, coming up with unique designs to cater to active individuals lifestyles,” commented Matt Ford, CEO of Power Practical. “Our company has grown exponentially since that time and we can confidently attribute that success to web platforms, like Kickstarter, that weren’t available to startups many years ago. It’s a resource that we don’t see slowing down, and only continuing to change the business world.”
Power Practical views Kickstarter and other similar crowd-sourcing platforms as undeniable opportunities to bring a product to market and engage consumers. Its rapid and continued successes are case studies for the viability of the growing crowd-funding trend in technology.
