Mine is moving through shipping faster than predicted -- tracking shows that it's on a truck as of 5am this morning, about 10 miles from here -- should be arriving tonight...

EDIT: checked the mail and it was already there. Fast delivery, even without Prime. We'll packed, no smell, and it works very well. Glad to have this, and very nice that I can use it with my Moko slim fit case on the N10, open or closed.

Default Mine arrived!

Ordered last Saturday, came today. Definitely charges faster. Magnets are kinda loose, but don't seem like they'd fall out. As for a smell, it's sort of musty like how the tablet smelled when I bought it.
Past devices:
 
Moto VE440, HTC Hero, Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Nexus 7 (2012), SGS1, Nexus 10, Galaxy S2

I'm not too impressed with pogo cable. It took me longer to plug it in than the USB plug, and it's shorter than the cable I was using. I also have to hang the tablet off the edge of the table so the connector has room when in the tablet stand, but I expected that.

If wireless charging on the N4 is the Ferrari of charging then this pogo cable is the roller skate of charging.

Sorry, but that's a user error.

Yes, maybe so, I just got the thing. However, it was in the dark and I have getting the usb cable into the jack in the dark down to a tee. I was fumbling around with the pogo connector, sliding it back and forth on the bottom trying to get the magnet to grab onto the device and also dealing with flipping it around trying to get it into the correct orientation. A better design would be to lose the plastic forming around the device and follow the magsafe design where the magnet is the only part of the connector close to the device. It wouldn't look as pretty but would be easier to find the connection. I might take a dremel to mine and shave off all plastic until I get below the plane of the top of the magnets.
