We're not sure what world travel this person is referring to. Our founder visited China on a business-only trip a few weeks ago, and the visit to Niagara Falls with his family was a rare break from work, a few hours’ drive from his house.

MAGFAST - Keep moving the goal posts

Hi Katy-- thank you for your feedback. We understand that crowdfunding isn't for everyone. Sometimes there are bumps in the road that no one can predict. Despite any setbacks we're working hard to create the products we know you'll love.

Deliver product or service ordered

I have been waiting for almost a YEAR for my items to be delivered. I have contacted them a number of times, and each time, they say something like "we will start shipping in spring 2019" then it's "summer '19", "winter 2019", and now it's "early 2020".

I get loads of emails saying they are working on something new, but they haven't even delivered on what they were doing. Satisfy the people who have ALREADY paid, and stop jerking us about.

This is feeling a lot like fraud to me.

We paid for actual PRODUCTS, and did NOT receive them. Ship them, or I am sure, there's probably people looking at a class action suit, because I know there are probably thousands of others who haven't received their products either.

And no, MagFast emails are not going into my spam folder.

Update by user Nov 13, 2019

Update: I have tried multiple times to get in touch with MagFast with zero results. They are just in the business of taking people’s money.

DO NOT GET INVOLVED WITH MAGFAST. THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF!!!

Original review posted by user Oct 14, 2019

I had ordered product knowing that it would take a few months to receive. I was helping a new company find its footing.

Now over 6 months later, and no replies to my inquiries to the company, i only see updates about the great strides this company is making. I am happy that they are advancing, but towards what?

I see no product. It seems like he is just funding his wallet.

MAGFAST - I was definitely impressed with Seymour's Presentation!,

So i placed my order for 297.00 for the Family Pro Kit and i couldn't click on the free Double Power Outlet ! I was trying to go back ,but i had a time limit for the Jumper Cable deal! So will i get the free Double Power Outlet?

ALL YOU DO IS COMPLAIN ABOUT HIS COMPANY ,YET EVERY WEEK THERE IS A UPDATE ON WHAT THE COMPANY IS DOING.I'M WAITING FOR MY PRODUCT,BUT YOU DON'T SEE ME CRYNG LIKE A BABY OVER A SMALL AMOUNT OF MONEY.GO TO ANOTHER COMPANY AND SEE WHAT THEY CHARGE FOR JUNK, AT LEAST MAGFAST IS GIVING YOU A PRODUCT THAT ACTUALLY WORKS. I GIVE THIS COMPANY 5 STARS AND AAA+ RATING

I pre-ordered the "I want it All" package for my family. We are all techies and can not wait until we get our hands on these. We are all so tired of constantly getting frayed cords that don't work. Wish they were going to be shipped before Christmas. I have referred all my friends and co-workers as well. Can't wait!!!!

MAGFAST's reply to:

MAGFAST - No valid customer service response, continued emails to "wait". Typically string along

Thanks for supporting us back at our original launch. You’re correct, this project is taking much longer than expected, but only because we’re insisting on creating something great. As our founder said back in 2017, the world doesn’t need any more chargers of the quality that are out there today. The only point in launching a new system is to be way, way better. It turns out that even the best charger manufacturers are only used to delivering the average-quality products that fill your drawers and the country’s landfills. Our choice all along has been to give up and settle for more-of-the-same (exactly the opposite of what we promised). Or to take the far, far longer and harder path and do what we promised and work to create something world-class and report on our progress. That’s what we’re doing and we understand that not everyone will want to stick with us as we do this.

Large order placed in March of 2017 after one of their online live videos with a promise to increase the order if you act now (in retrospect, it has all the markings of a scam, I was just not paying attention). Over a period of 2 1/2 YEARS there have been constant group emails about how this or that is going well, there is a setback on another thing, just wait and you'll get more, etc.

No responses to customer service emails.

At this point, duplicating this complaint to Consumer Reports, BBB, State of NY, and anywhere else to spread the word.

My "receipt" for purchase was #[1***-4461] (they will have the actual receipt, but it can be verified) along with emails detaining the invoice/receipt and Visa processing. Unfortunately VISA has told me its too long to extract a refund, however I can get their business added to the fraud department for further investigation.

MAGFAST - Great service

Due to an error on my self I contacted magfast to get it squared away . And when I called I had the best and the most smoothest transaction and was also very very helpful with all my questions. Not once did I get a I’ll check ? This is a company I truly enjoy doing business with Robert J Owens GySgt. USMC DAV. ret

MAGFAST - Excellent company

I purchased the original charger years ago and am still using it daily. I invested in the new products a couple of years ago and eagerly await receiving them. I am very impressed with the weekly updates and the quality control that has gone into the new products. Seymour and company adhere to the highest standards and that impresses me.

Nothing has happened in particular other than that Magfast continues to prove that it is a company of exceptional quality. They are building an extraordinary product and keep their client up to date on a weekly basis as they work their way through the onerous task of getting their dream to market. It is apparent that Magfast is comprised of a truly terrific group of individuals all pulling together in that effort. I have been so impressed.

I want a refund for the preorder receipt W190809-57329 for Magfast family chargers. I did not know it would take this long.

I want out of the crowdfunding. Sorry for the inconvenience.
