Default Nexus 10 Dock

Hey everyone!

I really wanted a dock for my Nexus 10 but since none were available I decided to build my own. After posting pictures of it here, there were a lot of people that wanted to buy it. So I decided I would start selling them. I ended up selling a bunch and people seem to really like them. If you're interested, you can order one from my Tictail Store.

More pics and details below


  • Faster Charging - Built-in power connector to charge your tablet through a magnetic pogo connector. The tablet charges about 25% faster and is much easier to use than a microUSB cable. A USB cable coming out of the dock plugs into the wall adapter that comes with the tablet so this can be used anywhere in the world where the Nexus 10 is sold.
  • Easy Docking/Undocking - Since the connector is magnet based, there is nothing to plug in. The magnets auto align the tablet to the charging pins. This is as close to wireless charging as you're going to get with this tablet - just pick it up when you need it.
  • Angled Design - For hands free movie watching, surfing the web, or playing a game all while the device is charging.

Ordering
You can order the dock directly from me from my Tictail Store.

This is a homemade product, but I've tried very hard to make it look professional and clean. There was an extra hole on the back for audio which I have plugged - see the pictures. Also, the front of the device used to have a Toshiba logo that I have taken off to the best of my abilities, making the front have a finish that's slightly different from the rest of the dock. It looks great though.

Here are some pics






Thanks for all the support guys! This was initially a fun little weekend project that took on a life of its own and went bananas, but I like bananas so it's all good

Damn this is awesome. Well done. I'm gonna make this with the "standard dock" instead.

Awesome! Let me know how it works out. The reason I didn't use the standard dock was because there's no USB port on the back, but I guess you could just run the cable out from the ac plug hole.

That's what I was planning on. I feel its easier to do overall.

I see there are USB ports at the back of the dock. Do those ports work when the N10 is docked?

Only the one you solder to, which is used for charging
