Zut–Charger is the offspring of hacking, fueled by frustration.
It spawned in the mind of its creator during a long direct flight between Los Angeles and Paris: one Zik, two empty batteries and no way of recharging them outside of the headphones.
Zut!, he said in his native French, I need to make a charger!
Zut–Charger was born.
Many hours of CAD design in Solidworks™ lead to a few early prototypes which then required more hours of redesign, before obtaining the finished product. Eventually, 3D-printing was chosen to keep the production costs reasonable and avoid the “Made in China” label. Each charger is then individually made and assembled in the USA.
