UUGear Store will open on March 26

Yesterday we worked on the testing of the first batch of UUGear USB hub, and everything seems OK. Now we have idea how fast we can go and can accurately estimate the date for launch. So we finally confirm that, UUGear store will open on 26th March!

We have waited for the day so long, and we are so excited that our business can finally start. We are thinking of a way to appreciate our first batch of customers, and precise news is coming soon!

 

 

Finally Get the First Batch of USB Hub

1

We hadn’t released any news for quite a while, and today we have a very good one: the first batch of USB hubs finally arrived 🙂

It should have been there about one month ago. The reason for the delay is because we were not fully satisfied with the soldering quality and we insisted a full rework. Being picky is quite expensive, we definitely know that losing time means losing money. However we won’t take it as a lesson, instead we will keep working like that since we believe being picky on quality control will get great rewards in the future.

We still need some time to test the hubs (yes we test EVERY hub we have), so we could not immediately open our store yet. But with the hubs in store, we are quite confident that we could make the official launch in next week. The official announcement is coming soon!

USB Hub Design Finalized

After 3 iterations, we finally freeze the design of our first product: 7-port USB hub for Raspberry Pi.  The first batch of the PCB is under produced.

Due to the Christmas and New Year, the producing will be slow and even be postponed for some days.   We are expecting to deliver the first batch on February 2014.

Prototype of First UUGear Product

We will design and develop a lot of wonderful electronic products and accessories, and the first one in our blueprint is the USB hub for Raspberry Pi.

We are big fans of Raspberry Pi, and we do think Raspberry Pi needs such a USB hub to get better.  We designed a 7-port USB hub, which has exactly the same size with Raspberry Pi, and it could be mounted above/below Raspberry with two cooper cylinders.

The development of this USB hub has begun for a while, and today we received the first prototype of this USB hub.

We will test it extremely, and do our best to improve the design.  Hopefully we will see the final version at the beginning of year 2014.

UUGear Website is Born!

We are happy to announce that, today the UUGear website is born!

There are still a lot of work to do before the website to be really functional.  We got detailed planning and have everything in the pipeline, and we look forward to an exciting 2014!
