PopSockets were invented in 2012 in Boulder, Colorado, by our now-Chairman-of-the-Board David Barnett. To help fund and publicize his nascent company, David started a Kickstarter campaign which proved to be extremely successful, thanks in part to the ludicrous video David made to extol the virtues of PopSockets. We want to thank all our Kickstarter backers for their early support. After some delays, PopSockets.com went live in January 2014.
Since then, PopSockets sales have been growing exponentially. Some people initially think that PopSockets look strange, but after they try PopSockets, a common reaction is, \"I don\'t know how I ever held my phone without a PopSocket.\" We\'re so happy to have a growing loyal fan base - it\'s because of them that we know we have a worthwhile, valued product.
