Originally unveiled at the 2014 International CES, where it received numerous industry awards, the Dart is now available for pre-order on Kickstarter.com starting at $79 - a $40 discount off the expected retail price.

Vanessa Green, CEO of FINsix, said: “We are very excited to make the Dart available to consumers and businesses. Its small size and ultra-light weight make it incredibly portable, and its built-in USB port eliminates the need to carry multiple chargers. With the Dart, we look forward to lightening the load of everyone on the go.”

Specifications for the FINsix Dart:

  • Power: 65 watt
  • Size: 2.5 cubic inches
  • Weight: 60 grams (0.13 lbs.)
  • Output: 18V - 21V
  • Compatibility: All major PC laptop manufacturers
  • Warranty: 1 year
  • Price: Starts at $79 on Kickstarter

Developed by FINsix, the worldwide leader in VHF (Very High Frequency) power conversion technology, the Dart combines fundamental circuit concepts such as resonance and wave shaping with new power conversion architectures to cycle power up to 1,000 times faster than today’s systems. FINsix’s VHF technology is covered by 20 issued and pending patents.

FINsix is offering a special early bird price of $79 to the first 1000 users who back the Dart on Kickstarter. Click here to pre-order the FINsix Dart on Kickstarter today.
