@OP again

Don't be browbeaten by the hecklers. $20 is a great price, especially when you have a captive audience. Hell, I'd hock it for $30!

Selling is just a matter of setting expectations. $20 isn't much diff from $10. Couple of hamburgers and a shake. Start talking fast...

"It's true that cost is higher than the generic charger cables you can buy at Walmart. But these specialized cables are only made in limited numbers and thus have high per unit cost for us. As you can see below, wholesale cost for the Asus TF700 charger cable is $15.33/qty1. Our pogo-pin charging cable has more components and thus costs more to make."

$15 including shipping is absolutely tops for me. Otherwise will wait for a more reasonably priced 3rd party cable.

Here it is!!! it makes nexus 10 charged 40% faster than a usb cable. It will be available for sale on Amazon and ebay soon! I will provide you a link to buy it later.

Well, OP said that N10 was supposed to come with the cable, ie cable was supposed to be "free." He set the cable's reference price to $0. In effect, he lowballed himself. So not a surprise when peeps don't want to pay much more than a generic cable.

OP has posted his sales pitch on other Android forums. When he skipped the "supposed to get it with N10" spiel, the responses to his "$20-25" were all positive. As said, it's about setting expectations.

IMO, $20 is a fair price for a proprietary cable.

I can probably get a case, controller, and USB OTG cable for $20... (not 100% sure on the case though; did a similar pricing when I bought the stuff for my Nexus 7 ) But $20 for a charging cable (unless this very same cord can do something else in it's current state) is just a bit... on the high side.

I guess if anything I can ask for it as a Christmas present

Oh, the pogo cable will be up online probably on ebay early next week. I will provide you a link and international shipping available as well.
No schedule, it is not interest for me!!!

--------> Galaxy S GT-I9000 <-------- Rom: CM 11 | Kernel: stock
----------> Sony Xperia Z2 <----------- Rom: T-Mobile stock (Wait for exploit)

You know, Apple is pretty well known for overpricing accessories... which is exactly what this cable is (imo), overpriced. And Apple fanboys don't apparently complain about overpricing...

I don't mind paying people for work and construction at all, given that it's reasonable of course. Would be like somebody offering to pay me to build a Snowman, and I build a generic-looking Snowman, and charge $300 for it just because nobody else offers the service (lol).

That's cool Wish I had that kind of money to just throw around :/

I may or may not buy the cable; personally I don't even need it since I charge my Nexus 10 overnight anyway.

I am going to wait for a POGO dock, either with a keyboard (preferable) or just a dock.

Much more elegant solution.
