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.
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.
