A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Declutter your space and take the stress out of charging. Know where to find your wires, devices and easily stay powered up. All your charging needs in one sleek looking hub!
CHARGE ANY DEVICE
The Dock Me charging towers are a vertical charging hub that can easily accommodate up to 9 devices at once. They incorporates qi wireless charging, fast USB charging up to 3A and the M1 model even has a socket in it's base allowing you to charge old devices.
CHARGE 2 DEVICES WITHOUT WIRES!
CHARGE EVERYTHING AT ONCE!
The Dock Me charging tower M1 series has 3 charging shelves. One shelf is for qi wireless charging of up to 2 devices and the other two shelves are both USB charging shelves. This is the floor standing model which has a 110v power socket in the base. You can charge up to 9 devices at once in this convenient area.
The Dock Me charging tower Mini M2 series has 2 charging shelves. One shelf is for qi wireless charging of up to 2 devices and the other shelf is a fast USB charging shelf. This model is wall mountable as the base is detachable. You can quickly charge up to 5 devices on this model.
To get the Wall Adapter simply add $30 to your Dock Me purchase and we will add one to your order with FREE shipping.
We are seeking certification for RoHS, CE, UL and FCC. These are compliant with worldwide charging standards.
We have limited the shipping of Dock Me to only a select number of countries. If you are interested in receiving one please contact us to check the rates and availability of delivery in your country.
Thank you to those who have been following me over the years trying to get this product out. After lots of hard work, networking, pitching and growing our idea into a start up we are ready for this Kickstarter campaign and ready to start the manufacturing process.
To date there are still no adequate charging units that allow us to charge several devices, of different size and shape without taking up any counter space. We can fit cell phones, tablets, speakers, headphones, watches even toys on the Dock Me towers! It's a one stop hub for charging that makes it easy to keep all our gadgets powered up and ready when we need them without the stress associated with charging!

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, our experienced team and our contacts from York University that we are ready to bring the DOCK ME charging towers to market. We have built several functional prototypes and have tested them extensively. These are production prototypes which we believe will make it easier for us to get the Dock Me charging towers manufactured. The Dock Me towers have even undergone preliminary testing so 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 charging towers may vary slightly from the pictures that are displayed but we intend to deliver a final product that fully resembles our prototype.
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. We are committed to being transparent in all our activities and open and informative at all our stages of production until all units are delivered.
