THE PROBLEM - Smart phones and tablets are essential parts of our daily routines. Many of us use cases to protect our devices as they get more advanced and expensive to fix or replace. If you alternate between cases or use protective cases such as LifeProof, OtterBox, Griffin, TakTik, etc., then you know its near impossible to find a charging dock. Your less than desirable options are to use dock extenders, charge your device flat on the table with your cable or resort to case mutilation....until now.
Introducing Sarvi Dock.
DESIGN DIRECTION The design for docks today start from naked devices and barely extend beyond slim cases. With Sarvi Dock our design process started with the most protective cases available and we worked backwards towards caseless devices. By going against the grain we have created a simple fluid design crafted from aluminum. Our design uses Apple and Samsung factory cables. Once we solved the difficult cases that no other docks worked with we tested all other case and device combinations. Sarvi Dock is compatible with extreme cases, medium cases, caseless devices and anything in between.
UNDOCKING - By combining weight with polyurethane pad rails, undocking is a smooth effortless experience every time - Yes every time! These extremely durable rails leave no residue and stick to more surfaces than micro suction pads, magnets or adhesive pads. Just apply pressure to the pressure sensitive pads and they stick. The more pressure you apply the better they will stick yet they come off with an easy twisting motion. They are easily cleaned with a damp cloth. No wobbling, tipping over or holding your device hostage.

WHAT CASES WORK? Designed to work with all Apple, Samsung, LifeProof, OtterBox, Griffin, TakTik, Seidio, Gumdrop, Ballistic, Rockform, Speck, Switcheasy, Trident, Kensington, Joy Factory cases and many many more. If your case is not listed or you have any questions visit our website www.sarvidesigns.com for more examples or just send us a picture of your connector plugged in to info@email@example.com and we will confirm the fit for you.
WHAT SUPPORTS THE WEIGHT OF MY DEVCE? A robust back support and an aluminum connector body supports your device. Combine this with the removable non slip rubber pad which eliminates lateral motion and your device is held and positioned securely. The rubber pad also protects caseless devices.

FACTORY CABLES - We focus on factory cables for 3 important reasons 1) They are the best charging cables for your device 2) Most cases have openings designed specifically around the factory cables 3) 3rd party cables have been shown to damage batteries and other expensive components of your devices. We designed custom aluminum connector receivers for each factory cable as shown below. All you need for Sarvi Dock is the cable that comes with your device.
************ Sarvi Dock does not come with any cables**********
As devices and their technology get more advanced its important to use the original equipment for charging and synching. Factory cables come in different sizes so we designed a Multi Cable Tension System (MCTS) with two channels that work with cables of different thicknesses such as Samsung and Apple cables.
KEEP YOUR CASE ON - With connector receivers that adjust up to 15 degrees Sarvi Dock will fit any case for Apple or Samsung devices regardless of thickness. Fixed position docks do not offer this flexibility. This means caseless devices, bumpers, slim cases, thick cases and ultra protective cases even those with connector covering flaps all work with Sarvi Dock. No more taking off your case just to charge your device.
ANY GENERATION DEVICE - Sarvi Dock is future proof! When new connectors are introduced just purchase the new connector receiver from our website www.sarvidesigns.com. Available colors include silver, black and a Limited Edition Kickstarter Green (Only available during this project campaign).
SPEAKER/MICROPHONE PORTS - An elevated design keeps your speaker and microphone ports unobstructed. This means your sound is unobstructed or muffled and your calls, Pandora, iTunes radio, video conferencing, gaming and much more are still crisp and clear.
CONSTRUCTION/FINISHING/ASSEMBLY - Comprised of 3 all aluminum parts (main body, connector receiver and base cover) Sarvi Dock is precision CNC machined, bead blasted and anodized. Assembly is quick, easy and takes less than 5 minutes.
USES - Devices are very stable and secure using Sarvi Dock. Making it great for FaceTime, second display, notifications, texting, bedside alarm clock and much more. Use yours everywhere.
PRODUCTION - Good design takes tweaking and re-tweaking. Over a year has been invested in designing, testing and building prototypes of the Sarvi Dock. We have invested funds into optimizing the manufacturing process to ensure a smooth production run. The right manufacturer with the level of expertise and materials to meet our standards has been secured With Kickstarters support we can produce our first run.
THE JOURNEY - If you have ever broken or scratched your device you know that cases protect your investment. You may even have different cases for occasions that need varying levels of protection. The more protective your case or the more times you change your case increases the frequency of removing your device from the case before you can use one of the docks currently in the market. Remove device from case, dock, undock, add device to case....use your device, ready to charge, remove device from case, dock, undock, add device to case.....do it again! This is frustrating and we want to change that!
Although simple, a lot of time, dedication, engineering and many many failed attempts went into Sarvi Dock. We have created the very first dock for Apple and Samsung devices that works with ANY Lifeproof, TakTik, OtterBox, other extreme cases, naked devices and everything in between using the cable that comes with your device.
SARVI DESIGNS We formed Sarvi Designs to launch our first product - Sarvi Dock - to market. Our forte is bringing products to life and building relationships with vendors across the world and we are the perfect team to bring Sarvi Dock to life and on time. With kickstarters on our side we will succeed!
WE NEED YOUR HELP We need help from the Kickstarter community to produce our first order. We have already invested a lot of our funds and resources into this project and If we can achieve our funding goal Sarvi Dock becomes a reality.
Thank you Kickstarters!!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We have spent the last year testing, designing, modifying and retesting and optimizing the Sarvi Dock design for a smooth manufacturing stage. After many early samples and test models we have made 6 fully functional final product prototypes with our manufacturer. These samples have helped us finalize colors, finishes and manufacturing details. Our manufacturer has tremendous experience in the area of die casting and we are confident in our timeline. We also have an excellent fulfillment partner to expedite the shipments.
Following the first launch of Sarvi Dock on Kickstarter, many inquires came in requesting single connector kits (instead of the bundled pledges we offered) and connector kits for Samsung Galaxy devices. We re-visited the design and came up with a solution that incorporated new design elements to meet this demand for Sarvi dock to work with both Apple and Samsung devices. This new design solution also prompted us to review our prior bundling package for 2 connector kits in one pledge and this revealed that offering single connector kits instead of a bundle would reduce our cost. This new design resulted lin ower minimum quantity orders from our manufacturer and lower prices that can be passed on to the consumer. We are happy to relaunch with these new pledges.
If we get enough people to believe in our vision of this Sarvi Dock we will communicate effectively, provide regular detailed updates, set the right expectations and strive to produce an exceptional Kickstarter experience for those who believed in our vision. These are the tools we have used to create successful relationships with our vendors and business associates. Even with all planning laid out manufacturing is always rife with unexpected variables. We are the team to ensure transparency and communication to overcome these variables and achieve the best results. We thank you again for the opportunity and for joining us on this journey.
Yes you can. Just multiply the number of docks you want by the pledge. if you have any questions just send us a message. Want to combine pledges send us a message and we will work with you to make sure you get what you want. We are here to help.
Shipping is included to the US and there is a flat fee of $15 for Canada and $22 for the rest of the world. This flat fee is regardless of the number of units. 1 dock, 3 docks 7 docks all the same flat fee. So its better for everyone especially international backers to pick up multiple docks. Especially at this amazing Kickstarter price.
Our connector kits are manufacturer specific and were custom engineered to fit only the cablesfrom Apple and Samsung. These are Factory cables that come with your devices. We are avoiding using 3rd party cables for this design. For more information you will find the images above.
Once funded (fingers and feet crossed) we will send out a survey where you will be able to indicate your color choices, connector choices and what your pledge amount should be used for.
We are primed for a January delivery if we begin after the campaign is over. However our plan and hope is that we get funded early then we can begin production early. This way we can shoot for an earlier delivery.
The Sarvi Dock does not include cables. The connector receiver kits are custom designed to work with your factory cables that come with your devices.
Approx 3in wide, 4in deep and 4.25in high
