Electronics are getting increasingly affordable, which means even non-enthusiasts these days are ending up with multiple devices they use regularly all needing to get charged at around the same time. Between smartphones, tablets, second tablets, portable media players, smartwatches, and activity trackers, far too many desks, countertops, and side tables are becoming entangled by cables of varying length and size. Therefore it's not difficult to understand why so many people were drawn to the All-Dock Kickstarter project. The campaign just closed with the team having pulled in $97,479 in funding.

The All-Dock will be capable of charging multiple Android devices at once and hold them upright at the same time. The cables are tucked away inside, but they can still slide out of the box for those times when you want to use a device while it's charging.

The dock comes in multiple colors and sizes, and backers were able to claim one with pledges ranging from $39 - $149. They should start receiving their shipments in May of this year.

    Looks kind of neat, it would be better to know about these projects before they are finished.

      True I have thought this for a while. Android Police should have a PSA type of article for projects that need funding BEFORE they are finished

      Don't worry, you're not missing much. It's most times best you hear about it after it's done because the majority of Kickstarter projects usually end up not shipping on time due to various reasons. If they do end up staying on course with their timeline to bring the product available to the public, then you'll be able to buy it in no time.

    Now if only they sold just the charger, I would be willing to make my own tray.

        Thanks! Had no idea anyone made these.

          I have one of these (the black one) and use it for GNex, S3, Moto X, Nexus 7 (2013), Touchpad, Nook, and some battery packs. Charges all of them fast. I also have the old version (white) of this that has specific ports for specific products (usually get this version for $16) and I would not recommend it just because of the hassle of making sure you are using the correct port for a specific device

            Thanks, I remembered the older white one, didn't know they replaced it with this.
