Here's a Kickstarter project that I funded within minutes of viewing the pitch video -- a universal smartphone/tablet charging station for mobile devices that are enclosed in protective cases.

Undercover charger

Sarvi Designs to kick start its charger for undercover phones, tablets.

Sarvi Designs turns to crowdfunding donations using Kickstarter to help launch its battery charger that will work even if the device is covered by a protective case.

Frankly, I can't beleive not a single vendor has addressed this problem before. You buy an expensive smartphone or tablet, which you then enclose in a protective case like an OtterBox, a Lunatik, Lifeproof, Griffin, Trident or a Ballistic.

You then realize it won't work with the OEM dock accessory anymore. 

What I really like about this product is that it appears to be of quality construction -- machined metal, with a nice, simple industrial design -- and it will mate with practically any kind of smartphone or tablet in a protective case, with any standard type of smartphone charge connector, such as Micro-USB or Apple 30-Pin or Lightning.

The funding campaign for the Sarvi Designs smartphone dock runs through November 12. Early funders can get the dock for $25-$35.
