Other Details: In an e-mail from the company they told me: “I specifically chose a non-coloured silicone for my MPowercup as my pharmaceutical grade manufacturer advised against a colour. Colour silicone is readily available but he would not 100% guarantee it for this particular application. I did not want to take a chance so went with clear as in catheter tubing and ICU tubing etc is also clear.”.  They also are running a program to give the Mpower cups to impoverished women in South Africa.

As of July 2010 – Due to a possible design conflict with Lunette, the MPower is apparently going to be redesigned.
