Default Magnetic wireless charging car dock - $65

Just found this on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Synergy-Vehicl...qi+car+charger for $65, I just put in a preorder.

It looks pretty good, and there is a video on Amazon. Does anyone know the company? What do you think?

Posted a few times now. Not going to be produced. The inventor tried Kickstarter but failed to meet the goal required. Not sure why it is still listed on Amazon.

Looks clunky...but most of the car chargers are.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...tphone-charger

How does the phone attach? With the nano-suction material (the "special foam" they list)

My only concern, is it's meant to mount to your windshield. You get in a car accident, do you really want a 1.5 lbs of metal flying around in the car ready to knock you out?

Looks pretty neat. I may order one, let us know how well it works.

Damn that sucks, I found the kickstarter page and there they are listed for retailing for $95, with early backers being able to get it for $75, while Amazon has it listed for $65. That makes me think that the Amazon page is more recent or has been updated at least. So there may still be hope, I just emailed the founder and asked if the project was still alive and for an ETA.

Nope, unfortunately this is dead in the water for the foreseeable future: See here for further proof.

My hopes and dreams have been dashed.
