iblazr Soars past Kickstarter Goal; Announces Stretch Goals

First Fully Synchronized Flash for iOS and Android a Hit on Kickstarter

Kiev, Ukraine – August 9, 2013 –Bigger doesn’t always mean better. iblazr, the tiny external flash clocking in at a 1.26”x1.2”, is making quite the splash on Kickstarter.  With 26 days remaining in the campaign, iblazr has exceeded their funding goal by 177% for a total of $102,370. Today iblazr announces stretch goals for the campaign: if the campaign reaches $110,000 every campaign backer gets a diffuser, and if the campaign reaches $150,000 backers will be given the option to choose from four colors for the iblazr.

The silicon diffuser will be given to all pledgers if the campaign reaches the $110,000 stretch goal. The diffuser enhances pictures by providing more soft light for pictures so that the shadows aren’t as harsh.

If the campaign reaches $150,000, iblazr will offer color options for the iblazr. Backers can choose from the original back and white or bright and fun colors, including red, yellow, green and blue.

“We are so thankful to the backers for getting us this far,” iblazr founder Vlad Tislenko said. “The stretch goals add an element of excitement for current backers and give possible backers the opportunity to get in and receive the additional items if the goals are made.”

iblazr, the first external flash for mobile devices that is fully synched to smartphones and tablets, creates an optimal smartphone-ography experience: it provides an uncompromising amount of light and improves photo quality. The device uses four powerful CREE LED lights that provide enough light for great photographs, any time of day or night. The flash is much more powerful than any smartphone’s built-in flash, and it adds flash to devices that currently don’t have it, including the iPad and other tablets. Additional features include a continuous light mode, changeable brightness, and a built-in, USB rechargeable battery.

Currently, pledges start at $39 for one black or white iblazr (flexible charger included). A premium anodized aluminum iblazr, which is more powerful than the regular model in constant light mode, is available starting at $59. The different pledge levels reach to $300 for a personalized aluminum iblazr.

Estimated delivery on the project is December 2013. Check out a video about the iblazr here.
