JUICE - WORLDS MOST PRACTICAL WALL DOCK EVER
Wall Docks should not be more expensive than the device to be charged. We want it AFFORDABLE, DAMAGE-FREE AND EASY TO USE AND INSTALL. With this in mind we started creating the JUICE ON WALL DOCK - IPAD'S NEW HOME
Safely stored and always charged at the right place.
Trying to find the perfect wall dock for you iPad should not be such a big deal. But most of the currently available Wall Docks are far more expensive than the device to be charged, installation is quite a challange, retrofit is a mess or even an empty black hole remains on the wall when your iPad is on the road.
WHY JUICE - Coming from the A/V Custom Installation we know that the need for iPad installation accessories has increased enormously. Nearly every system is controlled by a mobile device, especially by Apples iPad. But we felt frustrated about the pricing of the currently available wall docks. So we studied the market, listened well to the key users and developed a dock that is the perfect alternative in a world that is dominated by pricey wall docks.
JUICE IS DIFFERENT
A incredible simple product that is different to all currently available iPad-Wall docks. With the JUICE we are opening the door to a new level - so that design and technology enthusiasts getting the opportunity to cost-effectively place there iPad within a few minutes of installation time .
DOCK AND CHARGE YOUR IPAD IN STYLE
DESIGNED FOR FUNCTION - NO ADDITIONAL FEATURES AND MACHANICS We think that product design is far more than just styling, it’s about understanding the core essence of what the product is supposed to be doing - In our case CHARGING.
So we created a WALL DOCK that matches perfectly and solves real-life problems – like how to safely store and charge your iPad. JUST IMAGINE how awesome it would look on your own wall with or without your iPad docked.
HIDDEN WIRING - NO MESSY CABLES AND CONNECTIONS
JUICE keeps your iPad off the floor, frees up your desk space, saves you from tangled cords, means you have a permanent home for your iPad.
LET’S GET RID OF ANY MESSY CABLES AND POWER SUPPLIES LAYING AROUND
CRAFTED FROM TOP-QUALITY MATERIALS FOR A SLEEK LOOK AND SOLID FEEL
QUALITY - Machined from a solid block of high-grade aluminium, JUICE looks awesome. It's CNC machined, sandblasted, micro polished and finished with a awesome anodize, just to make sure that it gets the same nice Apple finish! You will truly love to see it on you own wall.
EASY HANDLING - JUST GRAB AND GO
JUICE is designed to hold your iPad off the wall just enough to allows you to grip the top of it with just one hand and with our Accessible Home Button you’ve got full access to all functions of the iPad even when it’s docked.
Use the JUICE in a residential or even commercial space to turn it into an control or mediacenter, picture gallery or anything else you can imagine.
CHECK OUT THE SKILLS OF THE JUICE
Charge your iPad conveniently at your favorite position, while checking your email, prepairing a meal, controlling your home or just listening to music - all while your iPad charges. Your iPad is fully functional while charging in the JUICE WALL Dock.
We wanted to share our project through Kickstarter first. Kickstarter allows those who believe in what we‘re doing to help bring our dream to life. By backing the Project on Kickstarter you enable us to put the JUICE in your hands (on your Wall) first!

You can even personalize your JUICE with high-resolution laser engravings.
If you have pledged for custom laser engravings you will be able to send us your logo after the survey as well.
JUICE - IN THE DETAIL
The world's best products are clean and free from unnecessary parts and functions that can only break. JUICE is Super Sturdy - CNC machined out of a solid block of aluminum.
JUICE SIMPLIFIES CHARGING
Depending on the type of installation you can set up the JUICE without any visible cables or connectors. Just connect your existing Apple power supply to the next socket – READY.
Trought our design the JUICE easily adapts to the various dimensions of the iPad and holds it firmly in place.
You've got an iPad 2 or 3 - By using our swappable adapter the JUICE easily accommodates between 30 Pin and Lightning Connector.
Decide by yourself, when you want to make the change to the lightning connector. JUICE will be available for both 30 Pin and lightning, making it compatible with the majority of iPad’s.
ASSEMBLY - IN A FEW SIMPLE STEPS
INSTALLATION - EASY AS PIE
Within a few minutes installation time the iPad gets his perfectly new home. No need to break up your wall – JUICE is perfect for retrofit
Choose Location & Installation height and use our drilling template to make your marks, after that it's time to drill some holes. Connect the USB Cable and place the JUICE in front of the screws. Attach the JUICE on the screws and push it down. IPAD'S NEW HOME.
As you have seen in the video, we are just a small team with a big vision. We have created the Juice together aiming to bring On Wall Dock’s to the next level and to found a sustainable business. JUICE should not be just a one-off Kickstarter project. We known each other for more than 10 years and have already been working together in several former projects and now we are pretty excited working together on our own.
We are thrilled to share our project with you and when you see the JUICE on your own wall - you will know that YOU helped make it happen!

Where we are
JUICE is not a ready-made product, it's a project as it should be, but our samples look and work exactly the way we have explained. All components have been sourced, we have finalized our specs sheets, fixed our design and our manufactures are lined up and ready to start production. We have worked hard to address logistical and fulfillment challenges in advance and we have even sourced secondary manufacturers. Just in case one of them goes offline.
We are pretty amazed what we have done during the last months and we hope you are too.
Why we need you
We have self-fund all of the development, and feel deeply passionate about the JUICE. After developing, prototyping, and testing the JUICE, we have now lined up our manufacturer and NEED YOUR HELP to do the full production run.
All of the funding will go towards important aspects of making JUICE a reality.
- Manufacturing – Minimum Order Requirements
- Retail Packaging
- Shipping and logistics
Things we didn’t include in the goals:
- Our time

Risks and challenges
It's extremely important to us that you know that the JUICE is not a ready made product, it's a project. And you are going to support a new start-up company, starting the production of a new product right now. But with our skills as former managing director and art director/ project manager for public traded companies, we know what it takes to deliver great products on time. The majority of the risks and challenges have been worked out by our experience in product development and fulfillment. All of the prototypes shown in the photos and video are fully functional and tested during the last month. They look awesome and work fantastic. All components have been sourced and our manufactures are lined up and ready to start the first production run. However, when manufacturing new products like the JUICE you may reckon that unexpected challenges may arise. Such as: potential delays in manufacturing, tooling, obtaining raw materials, packaging, and shipping. But we know our experience and are familiar in optimizing manufacturing processes. This gives us the needed skills in handling these challenges. We have found a trustworthy agent, based in Bremen/Germany who is managing most of our communication with our manufacturer. He is travelling twice a month to Taiwan and we plan to travel with him to insure the quality and design off all our components. We are confident that our project will be a success and will do our best to fullfill or shorten our timeline. Most importantly, we know that good and honest communication is the key to make an awesome project and we promise that you'll always be informed about the actual status and the progress of our project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
