Default Found a dock that works with the Z1 Compact

Hi all,

I just received the DK31 dock from here:http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-Magneti...1267223&sr=1-1

I wasn't sure if it would work with the Z1c as Sony have a new version DK32. However, I can confirm the magnetic dock works fine with one of the included inserts. And the best thing is, you can take the dock apart by the screws and just use the cable instead of the dock if you want to.

Price is on par with other official mobile phone docks but it's pricey if you just want it for the magnetic charging cable.

Cheers,
Pete.

Ive just ordered this one to try...fraction of the cost of the original...not sure if it will work but worth a shot as the dk32 was not available

Nope.. or rather... it works n a different way.
There is a microUSB socket at the back of the cradle instead of the built in cable

Why does that dock have a full-sized USB output on it?

DK31 has interchangable sized fittings.

Just got the phone today and came here to report but thankfully you have done it already. Now I don't have to spend more money on another one.

Cheers,
