CARBON NEXT | Green Reward Terms & Conditions

About the Green Reward:

Starting 2022, Carbon Mobile will begin the Carbon Next program which will disassemble Carbon devices with the objective to further develop and optimize Carbon Mobile's processes around the re-use of its raw materials in the next generation of devices. To avoid unnecessary wastage using new Carbon devices, we instead request our customers to assist us, by allowing us to use their used Carbon 1 Mark II for this purpose. The Green Reward is a generous discount that these customers can use towards the purchase of the redesigned and updated 2022, next generation model of the Carbon 1 smartphone.

Customer Commitment:

The Green Reward is created as an appreciation to our customers who want to help us in creating a greener and better future with minimal creation of wastage in the process, which would be the case if we had to use brand new devices. However, even after the customer has received his/her Green Award redemption code, the decision to redeem the code and take part in the execution phase of the program is 100% voluntary.

Monetary value and sign-up period:

Initial Term (06.07.2021 to 20.08.2021): Purchases during this term are automatically eligible to receive the following Green Reward dependent on location: EU 400€ / United Kingdom £340 / International $400. The Green Reward value of customers who purchased the Carbon 1 Mark II at a discounted purchase price may be reduced by the respective discount value. 

Secondary Term (TBD): An extension of the Green Reward will be reviewed following the initial term. Customers that sign up during this term should anticipate a lower Green Reward value.

How to apply:

All customers who purchased their Carbon 1 Mark II without discount before 20.08.2021 are eligible for the full Green Reward value. Customers who purchased their Carbon 1 Mark II at a discount can apply, however Carbon Mobile reserves the right to lower the Green Reward value of such customers by the value of the respective discount given. A Carbon Mobile representative will review such applications and inform the customer of the Green Reward value granted. Only purchases of a Carbon 1 Mark II smartphone are eligible for the Green Reward. 

There are 3 routes for application: 
- All existing Customers (purchases from carbonmobile.com or from partner retailers): Are automatically eligible for the Green Reward and can claim it at www.carbonmobile.com/sustainability. Customers should do so before 20.08.2021 5pm CET to ensure their enrolment is successful. 
- New Customers (purchases from carbonmobile.com): Are automatically enrolled into the Green Reward scheme if they purchase before 28.08.2021 5pm CET. An automatic email following the purchase will confirm their enrolment. 
- New Customer (purchases from partner retailers): Are automatically eligible for the Green Reward if they purchase a Carbon 1 Mark II before 20.08.2021 and can claim it at www.carbonmobile.com/sustainability. Customers should do so before 20.08.2021 5pm CET to ensure their enrolment is successful. 

If your Carbon 1 is not purchased from carbonmobile.com, please make sure to keep a scan of your purchase receipt because it is required during the sign-up process. 

Green Reward Unique Code:

All applications will be reviewed and verified. If all customer details are correct and clear, a unique Green Reward code will be sent to the customer via email. Customers must ensure the email address entered during the purchase at carbonmobile.com or during the Green Reward sign-up process is correct. 

The unique Green Reward code can then be used against the purchase of the Carbon 1 MK III in 2022. Codes are transferrable by contacting Carbon Mobile customer support, but each individual code can only be used for the purchase of one Carbon 1 Mark III. 

Each code is only redeemable with the simultaneous trade-in of one used Carbon 1 Mark II to Carbon Mobile. The customer will ship his or her used Carbon 1 Mark II to Carbon Mobile. After the device has been received by Carbon Mobile, the code will become redeemable within 2 business days and can be used towards a purchase of the 2022 model of Carbon 1 (Mark III) at carbonmobile.com including free shipping to all countries Carbon Mobile sells to. Green Reward codes cannot be used together with other discounts, unless clearly stated otherwise. 

Multiple Green Rewards:

Each Carbon 1 Mark II sold under these terms qualifies for a separate Green Award code. This means if a customer purchases multiple Carbon 1 Mark II under these terms, he or she can claim the same number of Green Rewards. However, when purchasing the new Carbon 1 Mark III in 2022, customers can only redeem 1 code per each individual device they buy. This means customers cannot redeem 2 codes to purchase 1 device but for example they can of course redeem 2 codes to purchase 2 devices.

Redemption Period:

The Green Reward can only be redeemed on purchases made within the first 4 months of Carbon 1 Mark III initial sales start. The date will be announced through our newsletter and through email communication to the Green Award holders. After this term the Green Reward is invalidated. Customer assume responsibility to ensure that their email address provided is up to date. Customer details can be updated by contacting [email protected] 

Carbon Mobile will send reminders to all customers in 2022 during the market introduction period of the Carbon 1 Mark III. By accepting these terms, you agree to receive such email communication from Carbon Mobile.

The world’s first carbon fiber smartphone developed in Germany

Cologne - 16/3/2021

Ultra thin and extremely light developed with Tepex composite from LANXESS

  • The world’s first carbon fiber smartphone, developed in Germany 
  • Ultra-thin and extremely light thanks to Tepex composite from LANXESS 
  • HyRECM Technology unlocks the potential for carbon based composites in connected devices
  • Monocoque design akin to a Formula 1 race car 
  • Sustainable and recyclable materials
  • Repair-friendly design made for long service life 

Cologne, March 16, 2021 – A smartphone that sets new standards for lightness, slim design and sustainability is making its debut on the market this March: the Carbon 1 MK II from Berlin-based start-up Carbon Mobile. “Designed and engineered in Germany, the Carbon 1 MK II reignites miniaturization and drives sustainability in connected devices by replacing plastics and aluminum with advanced composite materials for the first time”, says Firas Khalifeh, CEO of Carbon Mobile. The base material for the production of the housing is a thermoplastic composite from the LANXESS Tepex dynalite product range. It is reinforced with fabrics of incredibly fine 1K continuous carbon fiber filaments. “Our composite material, which we developed for extremely lightweight components subjected to considerable mechanical stress, does more than just allow exceptionally thin wall thicknesses. In fact, with its high degree of strength and rigidity, it also helps to make the housing very robust for day-to-day use,” explains Philipp Genders, Tepex expert in application development at LANXESS. “In addition, the matte-black carbon-fibers give the smartphone a truly high-tech look.” 

HyRECM Technology – overcoming physical hurdles Despite their advanced properties for producing robust yet lightweight structures, carbon fibers behave in an electromagnetic shielding manner. This means that they block radio signals, forming a Faraday cage that rather than allowing signals to pass through, instead disperses them around the outer body of the device. Connected 

devices with carbon fiber, for this reason have been viewed as an impossibility by the tech industry. 

Following four years of research and development, Carbon Mobile’s engineers have developed a revolutionary process to unlock carbon fiber’s potential for connected devices. 

The patented HyRECM (Hybrid Radio Enabled Composite Material) technology fuses carbon fibers together with a complementary composite material capable of RF signal permeation. To further boost the devices connectivity, a unique 3D-printed conductive ink is integrated into the carbon fiber structure. The result is the first “radio enabled” carbon fiber based material. Applied for the first time in the Carbon 1 MK II, the new technology produces a robust carbon fiber-based housing structure that is not only incredibly thin and light, but also made from less than five percent plastic. 

Eric Chan from processing partner Modern Composites Ltd said, “LANXESS and their Tepex materials made the perfect partner in the development of HyRECM Technology. Being able to work with a superior material from Germany ensures the best application possible of this revolutionary technology from launch.” 

Lighter than a bag of potato chips 

Following the same construction principle as the load-bearing chassis of a Formula 1 car, the housing is designed as a monocoque, or “single shell”. As a result, it makes optimized use of the extreme rigidity of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). This contributes significantly to the thin wall thicknesses and low weight of the smartphone and also enables miniaturization. That is because there is no bulky reinforcement taking up space on the inside of the housing. According to Khalifeh, ”Our cutting-edge monocoque design enables a device that weighs only 125 grams, a third lighter than conventional smartphones. At just 6.3 millimeters, it is also 25 percent thinner as well.” 

Working toward a world with less electronic waste 

Carbon Mobile is committed to sustainable principles. The new smartphone uses only recyclable materials wherever possible. “We want to deliver our contribution to cutting electronic waste and improving sustainability around the world,” says Khalifeh. The composite material used for the housing can also easily be recycled and repurposed for new uses. “Like all products in the Tepex dynalite product line, it can be shredded and then processed on standard injection-molding machines to make high-quality components, either by itself or mixed with suitable new material,” explains Genders. To extend the service life of the smartphone, all its components are designed to be easily replaceable for repair purpose, which also prevents electronic waste from being created.
