The Keyport was a pretty nifty idea to reduce the overall clutter and confusion that’s associated with most keychains. It combined them all in a discreet package. The new version was just released and it adds some new features.
The Keyport Slide 2.0 incorporates a USB flash storage drive (up to 32 GB), a bottle opener, a micro LED flashlight, and other options. There are six slots available for customization in this version. There’s also a barcode holder. These inserts can be switched out easily, and more will be developed, including a Bluetooth locater, an after-market auto remote, a pen, stylus and a letter opener.

The Keyport Slide 2.0 was fully funded on Kickstarter last week. You can purchase the base unit at myKeyport for $39. US and Canadian residents need to fill out a form and send in photos of their keys so that they’ll be provided with blanks to make copies of their keys. International folks will need to send in their actual keys.
Just felt like sharing my personal experience with Keyport
Purchased one of them two years ago, seems like awesome idea, however it
started to fall apart on me just from normal use. where keyport casing meets
metal started to come apart, one of dividers in between of slides broke, key head plastic cracked,
lanyard tore and frankly the cap that holds base of keys is pretty
i treated it just like set of keys, no an iphone that needs a case and screen protector, and i expect it to be
replacement for my keyring, not another gadget to worry about, but – at
this rate it cost me already $80+
i contacted their support and they offered me 40% off next order which I
tried to apply to purchase replacement and order one more Keyport and
some blades – however I was told by Amy that they can’t do this for
frankly speaking – I think that this product is already an overpriced
gadget, they charge $5 per slide, think of it – its just a piece of
cheap metal with cut off head and 3 grams of plastic glued on. you can
get they whole house keys replaced for that kind of money at local
grocery or hardware store.
I was ready to spend 70$ on new keyports and accessories but i guess it
doesn’t fit into their budget and instead of keeping a customer they
prefer to instead upset one. Think of it when you are making a purchase
because standing up behind your product should mean – taking
responsibility, and i think that $80 key ring falling apart on you in
two years doesn’t exactly state quality anywhere here.
by the way, even at selling their original lesser of a quality but still cool product at $80 a pop they for some reason had kickstarted another project named keyport 2.0 and had another load of suckers buy into it – how is that when you are already a company you raise money trough kickstarter instead of taking your profits and use it for R&D ??
after leaving comment on their FB page with pictures they removed my comments, so this company doesn’t seem to like negative reviews? nice way of censoring – where is fairness?
