About this project

Our goal is to make charging easy and hassle free.  In a world where we have numerous portable devices that require charging DOCK ME allows you to charge all of them in one convenient area. Whether your device needs a socket, a regular USB port, a USB type C port or even qi compatible wireless charging DOCK ME can handle it. No more cluttered counter space. No more waiting for overloaded sockets. Centralized charging hub. DOCK ME takes charging to a whole new level!

 

BENEFITS

  • Lots of room for your devices
  • No more cluttered counter space
  • No more overloaded sockets 
  • Reduce the stress on your back & in your life! 
  • Find your devices quickly 
  • Promotes downtime from your gadgets

FEATURES

DOCK ME makes charging easy with its 3 main charging shelves. Each shelf has 2 standard USB ports, one USB type C port and a qi compatible wireless charging pad built into the shelf. Each shelf is metal reinforced  connecting it to the tower enabling it to hold 3lbs. Surge protection will keep your devices safe when there is a blip in the power grid. You can load it up or hook up just a few items  to be ready to greet your day fully charged!

 

Each shelf has smart charging technology built into it. This means that if you are  using all the charging ports at the same time the tower switches power to the device that needs the most current. 

The qi compatible wireless charging pad beeps when your phone is lined up with it. It also beeps when it is done charging (depends on the device).

The last shelf is a dedicated lap-top shelf for your bigger and heavier devices. It is made  of alluminum alloy and can handle a load of 6lbs. There is an on/off switch at the base and a 110V socket at the bottom that adds an extra method of charging. 

 

 

 

 

 

It's perfect in your home or office. It's convenient to have all your devices charged in one area. It even creates a home for them so you can locate them quickly. 

DOCK ME can be used in virtually any country. It is equipped with a 100V - 240V power supply so all you need to do is change the power cord or use an adapter. DOCK ME is ready to charge wherever you are!

Our Story 

The idea for DOCK ME was born in Canada, when our family was having trouble charging all of our devices. We have cell phones, tablets, cameras, power banks, a lap top and there would be no room near a socket to charge them, lots of messy wires and we would forget where we had left them! A prototype was made and the indispensable charging tower was born. All of our charging problems were solved. We knew where to find the charging wires, we had enough room for all of our gadgets, they were surge protected and we could charge many gadgets at the same time without losing any counter space or power. We decided to patent the idea and get it to market. We know the DOCK ME charging tower makes lives easier as everyone we loaned it to wanted to keep it!

Our Team

 

Our team consists of several experienced designers. We have teamed up with Rodney Cohen of Furniture by Asti to help us design DOCK ME. He has many years of experience designing and manufacturing products (including electrical products) that are in use by Disney Cruise lines, the Sheraton Hotel in Atlanta, La Guardia airport just to name a few examples. His experienced staff have worked hard to bring DOCK ME to this stage.

We are now at the production stage and are ready to manufacture DOCK ME and this is where we need your help. In order to get DOCK ME to market we need your support to pay for the molds, production, packaging and certification. Your pre-orders will ensure DOCK ME can be made available to the public.

The DOCK ME charging tower has made charging so much easier in our home and in our lives. With your support we can revolutionize charging for everyone. If you feel this would make your life easier we'd love to send you one.

Please feel free to share this link with people you know. Maybe it will make their everyday charging hassle free. Thanks! 

TESTIMONIALS from our test run

 

 SHIPPING

Our pricing does not include any applicable country taxes. Backers are responsible for any import fees, duties, taxes, post office fees or any other fees their country imposes. We do not ship to P.O. boxes. Shipments that cannot be delivered due to incomplete addresses or incorrect delivery info will have additional costs to be reshipped. Please fill out all forms as accurately as possible to avoid delays or any extra fees.

* If your country is not available in the shipping drop down menu please contact us to see if arrangements can be made to ship it to your country.

Risks and challenges

There are many risks with getting a product out to market but we are confident with the help of our established manufacturer that we are ready to bring DOCK ME to market. Rodney Cohen has experience manufacturing not only furniture but lighting and importing many types of media to North America. We have built several functional prototypes and have tested them extensively. We are confident that we are on track to make our expected deadlines for delivery to backers.

Due to continued enhancements the final DOCK ME tower may vary slightly from the pictures that are displayed but we intend to deliver a final product that fully resembles our prototype. 

As you may have noticed we have set a high goal of $450,000. This is due to the fact that there is a minimum order requirement of 3,000 units. We want to guarantee that our backers receive a good quality certified product risk free.

We are confident about keeping to our schedule but if there are unintended delays during the manufacturing or shipping process we will always inform everyone of all delays then implement appropriate solutions to stay on target.
