i just ordered this cover : http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00I...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

and this case : http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B005...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

and this usb magnetic plug : http://www.ebay.ca/itm/331180968083?...84.m1497.l2649

the cover will be on it all the time. i liked how slim it looked and that it was red. should receive it in a few weeks...
the case will only be used when i bring my tablet with me at work or anywhere. it looks slim and sturdy, i hope i wont be too heavy ! delivery in a few weeks too.

what do you think ?

Magnetic connector is worthless... the Sony official magnetic cable works way better.

I bought a magnetic plug and although it works fine the magnet is much too weak: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...82&postcount=7

the magnet on the adapter is weak and it is very hard to align to get to charge, and falls off if moved at all. The OEM sony cable fits well, alings instantly and you can pick up the tablet with it attached and it wont fall off. Well worth the money and obviously you get what you pay for......

Hi !

If you've got the chance to cancel that order: Give the DK39 a thought.
I know, I know... It's just a cheap piece of plastic, and the price is an affront...
BUT: You can hook up any USB power supply (like Samsung's real nice and inexpensive 2 A charger) and recharge with all the amperes the power supply has to offer.
This does NOT work via USB because power supplies need a special hardware coding to allow real quick charging of the Z2.
Just an idea.

thanks for the comments but i've already paid for the magnetic adapter. i guess i'll get it in a few weeks and see what it is really worth. its only 3$ anyway.

i dont think the DK39 will work with a case of the tablet, no ?

works with a case, not unless your case is like more than an inch thick

Thumbs up
the hardcase http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B005...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 is perfect, its not too thick and the Z2 fits perfectly inside. if you want more pictures, just ask.
