Re: Magnetic POGO Cable
I ordered this on Amazon (US) last night, shipped today, due in end of next week beginning of the one after! I'll be glad to not be plugging in my musb in the dark at my bedside ever again. Not too worried about the charge times, I get pretty good screen on time as it is (coming from Stingray).

Thumbs up Working great and fast delivery
Sorry to rub it in to all you guys that ordered a month ago. Ordered Monday got it it last night.
Works great and seems to be quicker than the USB. I'll know better tonight. I'm running it down below 10% and see how quick it comes up.

You won't regret, in less than 2h, with the screen off (but n10 on, not powered off) it charged 61% Awesome cable, and magnets are great in case you got kids.

A quick note about the smell and first full charge
After reading the many posts in this thread' I've seen a number if people complain about the smell. While a bit off-putting, it goes away pretty quickly.
It kinda smells like it was packed with dried fish and kimchee. Really. Not surprising as it comes from Korea.

I ran my 10 down to less than 10% last night and pogo'ed. Battery monitor widget showed a rate of 1915mA at around 11:30 pm last night. Checking the history now it was fully charged by 4am with no usage. I'm going to do the same time tonight with the USB and see if it's any faster.

Very unscientific, I know, but here goes.
Plugged in last night at approximately the same time and battery level (11% and 11:30pm). Max charge was at 1550mA and the device was fully charged by 5:40am, over an hour longer.
An hour faster is pretty good to be sure, but not a huge improvement. I'd say the main benefit is being able to use the device as you charge. When I plugged in last night I was still discharging on USB before I put it to sleep, whereas with the pogo it began to charge slowly.
