One of the key differences between Apple’s current generation iOS devices and previous ones is the introduction of the Lightning connector. Unfortunately, this has forced many of us to buy adapters, chargers, and the like. A new Indiegogo project offers home users new charging solutions, regardless of device. The Crystal Core TiltDock is available in three variations, including one for 30-pin devices, such as the iPhone 4S and iPod mini, and another for devices with Lightning like the iPhone 5, and iPad with Retina display. A third dock includes a Micro USB connector for use with Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, and LG products. Best of all, the docks are said to work with almost any case. This is especially nice for those of us that use cases that aren't really made to be taken off each day. Features include:
Take a look: The folks behind the dock are seeking funding in the amount of $5,000 to get this project started. With six days to go at the time of this writing, they still need to raise just under $2,000. Available funding levels begin at $79, with shipments expected to begin in March or April. Funding ends by the end of the day on Tuesday, Feb. 5. The CrystalCore TiltDock shows great promise. For more information, be sure to check out its official Indiegogo site.
- Tilting backrest. You can ensure the angle of your phone is pefect for facetime, texting or playing. Tilt goes from upright to 45° angle.
- Fit's your phone with 99% of any cover, bumper or case. Our Patent Pending rotating connector fits them perfectly. You no longer need to remove your protective covers to mount the dock.
- Look Mom, One Hand! With our Patent Pending base, our dock stays put on the table or desk so everything you need to do with your phone can be done with one hand. Docking, undocking, typing/texting and adjusting the back rest. In my opinion, this is the number one best feature!
