Battery-Powered Maypoles Programmed & Tested

by Akshar Vastarpara

While we continue to be affected by the COVID-19 situation in India, including additional lockdowns, we have managed to carry out a series of three tests on each of the 192 maypoles produced in this batch. They are all working properly and we expect to pack them up and ship them to Crowd Supply before the end of the month.

Below is a picture of six battery-powered Maypoles after being programmed with the latest firmware and tested:

We know we are late, and we’re sorry, but it was unavoidable. We’ve set the estimated ship date to the end of June, but we fully expect to ship before that. Thank you for your patience!

Product Choices


Maypole With Battery

Includes a 3.7 V, 370 mAh LiPo battery and charging circuitry that allow you to upload and download files while Maypole is unplugged


Maypole Without Battery

If you only need to transfer files while Maypole is connected to a host device, you can skip the battery to save on size, weight, and cost.


Maypole With Programmer (No Battery)

Help us add new features! One Maypole (without battery) connected by six pre-soldered wires to an FTDI programmer with a MiniUSB port. Comes with a male MiniUSB to male USB Type-A cable.



Electronics was just all about engineering at the beginning, but the hacker community turned this industry into an artistic creative fun thing. We, Vicharak, are particularly interested in developing various kinds of hardware which will eventually serve people and hackers. We have already launched our first campaign with Maypole and some more cool projects are in the pipeline too! We want to try every possible electronics segment which can be hackable and make it more easily hackable. Our main goal is to develop simple solutions with major features.
