The ALLDOCK is a universal charging station that can charge all your portable electronic devices, such as smartphones, tablets, the Apple Watch, MP3 players, gaming controllers, cameras and so on. It's ideal for families or households with multiple smartphones.
1. Avoid Cable Chaos
No more cable mess in your living room. No more looking for cables to charge your portable devices. No more shortage of charging cables for your guests or family.
2. All-Round Compatibility
ALLDOCK is a universally compatible USB charger. Here are a few devices which you can use your ALLDOCK to charge: your iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple Watch, Samsung Galaxy smartphone, your Android tablet or smartwatch, fitness band, Kindle, camera or flashlight. Blackberry, LG, HTC, Motorola, Huawei, Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Nexus devices are also supported.
3. Maximum Charging Speed
ALLDOCK is the racing car of docking stations. It can charge up your phone to up to 80% of its capacity in under an hour. What’s even better is that attaching additional devices to the ALLDOCK does not reduce the charging speed for each individual device. The ALLDOCK Medium can be used to recharge up to 4 devices simultaneously.
4. Timeless Design
We designed the ALLDOCK to look as great on the conference table as it does in your living room. In our 25 years of experience as design professionals we’ve learnt how to keep our products clean, functional and gimmick free.
5. Premium Materials
Only the finest materials are used in the production of the ALLDOCK. Our 2015 models are hand-crafted from 100% natural bamboo and walnut, originating from sustainable forests in China and New Zealand.
6. World-Class Customer Service
Over the last 25 years, we’ve learnt all the ins and outs of the business. That’s why we can guarantee a short waiting time for your ALLDOCK. In fact, we will start shipping out the rewards directly after the end of the campaign.
2015 Improvements – how the new ALLDOCK became even better
In 2013 we became one of the first companies to release a docking station that could simultaneously charge multiple devices without any compromise in charging speed. This year we've made it even better:
1. One-hand Docking
The new ALLDOCK now allows you to dock up to 3 devices with just one hand. You can slip your smartphone or tablet into the ALLDOCK without adjusting the cables underneath. The fourth slot gives you the flexibility to charge any other device like a fitness band or a camera. Note: The docking adapter only works with the cables supplied with your ALLDOCK.
2. Apple Watch Integration
In 2015 we’ve created an add-on for the ALLDOCK, which will enable you to elegantly charge your Apple Watch alongside of your other digital devices. The Apple Wach mount will be sold separately but it will fit your new ALLDOCK perfectly.
Note: It is not compatible with the old models.
3. Improved Internal Components
Thanks to a component upgrade, ALLDOCK has become more energy efficient, without any compromises in its charging speed. You can charge up to four devices simultaneously without throttling the overall charging speed.

Production & Fulfilment Schedule
At Dittrich Design, we pride ourselves on our customer service and we extend it to our Kickstarter backers as well. Doing business with Dittrich Design (whether via crowdfunding or not) is an easy and seamless affair.
This is not your typical crowdfunding project, where you wait for months on end for your reward to arrive. In fact, we will be shipping the first 300 ALLDOCKs directly after the end of the campaign. These ALLDOCKs will go to those who pledge for the Immediate Shipping reward. From there on, we will handle our delivery schedule on a firstcome- first serve basis.
So the earlier you back this project, the sooner you will get your ALLDOCK!
Design & The ALLDOCK Story
Dittrich Design is a furniture design atelier, which was founded over 25 years ago in Wuppertal - Germany's capital city for product design. Over the years the company introduced many successful products to the market, one of them being the Z-Desk. The Z-Desk sold over 1 million units worldwide.
The ALLDOCK was first conceptualised in 2012 as a set-piece of interior decor and not as a gadget. It was created in response to the growing need of regular households to charge up their portable devices on a daily basis. The goal was to reduce cable clutter in an elegant, non-gimmicky manner.
The first model of the ALLDOCK was released in the end of 2013, with the help of the Kickstarter community. To date over 10,000 happy customers have chosen to furnish their home with an ALLDOCK.
In 2015 we are releasing an updated model of the ALLDOCK, which now features one-handed docking, Apple Watch charging and improved internal components. All while retaining the same classical look and the sturdy feel of high-quality furniture.

Risks and challenges
At Dittrich Design we pride ourselves on the quality of our customer service. That's why we've taken every step to ensure a smooth crowdfunding campaign. Here's how we addressed the major risks associated with Kickstarter campaigns.
1). Delivery Schedule
Many creators fall behind their delivery schedule, leaving their backers to wait months on end, or even years, for their reward. This usually happens because the prototype being shown in the video requires further work to become production-ready. At Dittrich Design we've worked hard to eliminate any product work from the post-campaign phase, so we can focus entirely on fulfillment. We've even scheduled our first production run so as to be able to ship the first 300 ALLDOCKs directly after the end of the Kickstarter campaign.
2). Product Quality
Having been in business for over 25 years, we know how to ensure consistent quality accross our products. Yet in the improbable event of a
customer receiving a faulty unit, we will make sure this customer receives a
3). Completeness of the Product
Another common risk faced by the average backer is that of receiving an
underdeveloped product. This is true not only for the inventions that stem from the Kickstarter community, but also for any first-gen product to hit the market. ALLDOCK 2015 is the second iteration of the ALLDOCK by Dittrich Design. It features numerous small improvements, which add up to a large increase in user experience. To validate this claim, we've asked several independent journalists to carry out a product review of the new
ALLDOCK prior to launching this campaign. Please see the links to the
reviews at the top of this page.
