I’m happy you’re reading this article as it is kind of proof that you’re interested in Omega. I’ve chosen it for you and have written this thorough review covering all the necessary information about the product and the team behind it to help you assess, understand, compare and make a final decision.

The Product

Innovation

Is this a truly new product that you can’t find on the market? Or this a product that defines an entirely new product category. In some cases, the combination of several features into one or the introduction of a new feature to an old product are also considered to be an innovation.

We like small objects, and it’s fine if you don’t…But what if those are objects capable of solving your everyday problems and making your life easier? Changed your mind? Hold on until you find out the big capacity in Omega’s small size and then take a second to appreciate your new-born love towards small objects… Chargers are everywhere, and they never get fewer…But they never get smaller either. So even if it won’t be hard for you to find a versatile charger, you might still come across some challenges to fit it in your pocket or carry it with you anywhere! Omega will come to help!

Experience

Have they developed something like this before? Do they have crowdfunding experience? Manufacturing experience? A lot of campaigns fail to deliver their product because they don’t know what they’re doing. Or they might spend all the raised funds on getting a fully functional product, but fail to mass-produce it.

Seems like we have experienced crowdfunding campaigners here. They’ve  had 8 campaigns including “Flash: World’s Most Powerful 210W USB-C Powerbank” and “Infinity Cable: ONE Cable for all your devices”, which were surely successful. Flash raised 1,508,842 USD and the shipping process has already started as promised. Infinity Cable raised 487,696 USD.  However, judging from the comments there were some problems with shipping and orders as a lot of people are complaining that they haven’t received their products or there is something wrong in orders.  omega-usb-c-fast-charger Despite of this, we notice that they’re openly communicating with their backers, which is contributing to their transparency score but leaving a little space here at the Experience score. The new Omega campaign is definitely more successful raising 657,151 USD in 15 days and they still have more than 40 days to go. Can you guess the final amount? 1mln, 2mln…. may be 3mln?

Transparency

How transparent are the campaigners? Do they give their backers valuable updates on their progress? Having credible and reliable campaigners is one of the deciding factors in building the trust that backers look for.

Well, they have 18 updates for each above-mentioned campaign, and 5-6 of them are regarding shipping. I guess backers are also interested in the shipping process and they did a great job on this. From the point of transparency, they seem pretty open to their backers’ community as discussed and seen earlier in the review.
