Miixr unveils protein shaker to charge your phone

08 Feb 2017

By: Sport Industry Group

Developed by the original creators of the vortex mixer, PROMiXX, two entrepreneurs from Cardiff have developed MiiXR - a new protein shaker, unveiled on for pre-release on Kickstarter last week, which will also charge your phone. 

The 2012 forerunner to MiiXR is already being used by more than 250,000 people in 50 countries.

Following consultations with their customer base during development of their latest project, developers have included technological features such as a new breather hole tio reduce spillage, magnetic coupling at the motor detachment for easy-cleaning, tritan copolyester construct to improve durability and resistance to impact and odour and X-blade technology for "vortex mixing". 

In addition, it features two Lithium-ion batteries to offer device-charging capability. The shaker can charge phones, tablets or headphones on the move whilst a micro-usb phone cable recharges the battery from a mains supply. 

MiiXR has launched on crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter, targeting a minimum total pledge of $30,000. The product went on to hit its goal within 14 hours and is currently the fifth most popular live project.

Early backers will receive pre-launch delivery of the product, along with discounts of up to 40% off retail prices.

General release of the new MiiXR is set in the UK and USA for July 2017. Retail prices are set at £22.99 for the Original MiiXR AAA battery version and £44.99 for the more powerful MiiXR+, a Lithium-ion version with device-charging capabilities.  

CEO, Joe Faulkner-Edwards said: “We are very excited to introduce MiiXR to the world. It marks a significant evolution in supplement mixing technology and the result really is something quite special.”  

Will Houghton-Jones, MiiXR CMO added: “Our loyal customers across the Globe share our excitement about the forthcoming MiiXR. They are the inspiration and drive behind our continued research and development to push the envelope with our products.

“We want to make sure that our early supporters and core community of fitness fans get the reward and value that they deserve through this Kickstarter.”
