Default Which stands/cases allow the device to charge while in use?

Hello, I noticed that the charging cable is connected to the bottom of the device (below the home button). If I want to charge the device while watching video with the device standing, what can I do? Obviously the official samsung bookcase cannot do this.

Something like this would work.

Hit Thanks if you're flattered or if I helped you

This is what I use.... I love it. Used it for years with my XOOM, and now the Samsung. I like that I can use it with a case on it. http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Al...s=tablet+stand

Default Official book cover works perfectly

When using the official book cover in standing position your galaxy note is actually upside down, so the micro usb is on top. Just tested it

Really? 'Cause I've been looking at reviews of it on YouTube and that's not the case (no pun intended).

I have two of these and you can actually charge while sitting on the stand. You have to configure it to lean the Note back some but it works.

Apparently this one works w/ the Note 10.1 2014 Edition, according to 1 review on Amazon - EE-D100TNWEGUJ.

While it was probably not designed for it, and it is not quite as stable as the standard upright position, you can configure the cover for the inclined typing position and stand the tablet on its head. I was using this position before I figured out the correct position. I still use it for charging.

Personally, I can't justify buying a stand--I have too much crap already! So are there any decent case/stand hybrids that do the trick? The whole layout of the Note seems pretty... haphazard. I've got the cheap Poetic case, but to charge it up while using the folding-stand it has to be positioned at the very edge of the table/desk/surface... which makes the flimsy stand even flimsier. (I seriously want to punch whoever it was that decided thin folding stands were okay to use with 10" tablets).

Just got the one I mentioned, today. Confirmed it charges while the Note 10.1 2014 is docked.
