Anyone found a solution for this? This is the only thing keeping me from ordering and trying one of these out as I'm concerned about the low voltage output as compared to plugging it in using the A/C cable that comes with the phone.

Default 0.5A like any other dock

according to specs, output is 0.5A
http://kidigi.com/product_lv2.php?pid=1376

AFAIK most of the docks use only 0.5A to charge - thus are useless for quick charging, and even worse when there's some CPU/display activity on the power hungry Tegra3 to charge it quickly. I am in the same water as you (however for X+ with higher capacity battery) looking for a proper 1A dock - no luck and I stopped looking.

funnily enough, I found dozens of external juice packs that can charge with 1A (at least they claim so) - but these docks can't, even thought they have AC plug directly to them

edit:
just noted, that maxwen added 'force fast charge' option to HTC One X+ kernel (might be ported to yours as well) - so one might try it with this dock and see if it can be forced to higher output (as AC charging was forced in the test for iPad v2 charger, see this thread:
-added "fast charger" support (allows "overruling" of automatic charger detection)
