    I just received my pogo charger yesterday and it is excellent, both in fit and finish and increased charging speed! also, the manufacturer has set up a web site for sales. no eBay or Amazon.

    I'm still trying to run it down. I'm at 75% right now. I may throw it on the charger now and report back in a little while. I'd post up some pics but for some reason I can't add attachments.

    OK, in one hour, my tablet went from 75% to 99%. How does that compare to the standard USB cable? I never timed the USB cable charge rate.

    Wow thanks for the update! My only concern is the long term ”wear n tear ” from an unofficial accessory, could it hurt the battery? Wear it out over time?

    Just a rough estimate, from 0%, while the N10 Is completely turned off, my device, via USB, takes roughly 5-7 hrs to charge. By no means scientific, just an estimate.

    Because of a seemingly lack of accessories for this device, I will probably order this! Thanks for posting

    For only a 25% increase in charging speed why would you want one, or am I missing something less obvious?

    I want one because it will be so much easier than fighting with the tiny USB port. With my luck a dock will come out before the pogo gets here.

    Sometimes I don't have time to do a full charge. For me it'd be nice to have a charger I can plug in for an hour and actually get some juice out of it. Via USB I'd barely get anything for 1 hr or even half hour. Also if you've noticed if you are using the device while charging via USB, it charges extremely slowly. And for only 20$!

    Also for me personally, I feel that USB can hurt the device's port long term from constant use. Not to mention I've had my USB charger ripped out of my phone, thankfully my charger was destroyed, not my phone. With the magnets, it seems virtually impossible to hurt the device. Also the website says there is a chip in the device that will keep it from overcharging.

    And finally, this charger can free up the USB so you can plug into your computer or use for other uses. Just a few things that come to mind! My 2c.

    Ps- I wanna use those little damn magnets! Lol

    Thanks OP! I've just heard of people having trouble with 3rd party accessories such as batteries, but I didn't read close enough!

    Thanks again. Can't wait!

    ORDERED!

    Just ordered one too. I cannot resist new tech toys.

    Hey Google....if you are listening, this would be a dock purchase if you would get off your butts and put it out. We all saw your Christmas video.

    Any idea if the manufacturer will make these available in Amazon? I ask because I have a remaining balance from a gift card.

    Edit - never mind, just read this:
    5. Are you going to sell the MagNector on Amazon and ebay?
    Yes. We are currently working to sell our MagNector on Amazon and ebay.

    Cheers to that!!! Get some freaking accessories in the Play Store already! I've never seen a device released with absolutely no manufacturer accessories available. And after 3 months to boot! Wouldn't you think that Nexus being the flagship tablet for Google, they'd have all the bell and whistle accessories ready to roll with it? Very disappointing.

    Seems pretty decent considering what most phone chargers are these days. + I have a million extension cords! Ha

    Sooooooooo jealous. unfortunately I entered my information correct on the website, but when they sent the invoice to my email my shipping address was the same as a billing address, which they are not in real life. I sent another follow up email correcting information but haven't received a reply. I'm hoping they just charged me anyway and send me the charger!

    Thx again for posting!
