Sarvi Dock is the first dock with cases as the starting point for the design.
We found that today most people use protective cases of different sizes to safeguard their devices. Finding a dock to fit protective cases can be difficult if not impossible. This is why we created Sarvi Dock - a charge and sync dock that works with any smartphone or tablet, in portrait or landscape orientation virtually any case and cable (third party, factory or even flat cables).
With Help from Kickstarters we funded and created Sarvi Dock V1 and backers loved it! Now based on their experience and feedback we have improved upon the design and now bring you Sarvi Dock V2.
Works With More Cables? - Sarvi Dock has a universal kit that works with factory cables, all MFI cables, virtually all third party cables and even flat cables. We also added more cable channels to fit different sized cables. Designed for devices that work with Lightning, Micro USB and 3.0 USB cables. Sarvi Docks do not come with any cables.
One Handed Undocking? We hate reaching for our device and the dock wont let go and dangles in the air. Sarvi Docks have 4 nano suction pads that keep them anchored to smooth surfaces for stability and easy one handed undocking. They also have cable grooves to keep the cables in place. Sarvi docks won't slide or hold your device hostage.
No Tipping or Wobbling - A robust back support with a rubber non slip pad secures and protects your device. The back support design reduces the stress on the connector while the non slip pad eliminates lateral motion and scratches from your device.
Seriously Any case? Yes we designed it 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. The universal kit adjusts to fit any case - It adjusts horizontally and vertically. With Sarvi Dock there's no need to take off your case just to charge your phone anymore.
Headphones and Sound - An elevated design keeps your speaker and microphone ports unobstructed. This means headphones can be used, your sound is unobstructed or muffled and your calls, Pandora, iTunes radio, video conferencing, gaming and much more are still crisp and clear through the speakers.
Craftsmanship - Each Sarvi Dock is CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminum then bead blasted and anodized. The resulting piece is a sculptural marvel that looks great everywhere. When you get yours you will have an appreciation for the details and work that goes into each dock
Landscape Kit - The new landscape kit allows you to use your device in the landscape or portrait position.
Sarvi Dock Everywhere - 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.
Sarvi Dock Colors - Sarvi Docks will come in Black, Grey and Gold as shown below.
Whats In The Box? Each box comes with a Sarvi Dock, Universal Cable Kit, Landscape Kit, Base Cover and 6 screws.
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 and with Kickstarters support we can produce Sarvi Dock.
How We got Here - 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. 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 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.
Disclaimer: We have no ties or affiliations with the makers of OtterBox, LifeProof, TakTik, Apple, Samsung or other case manufacturers whose products are used for demonstration in the video. No endorsement implied. We are just people who needed a new way to dock :-)
Risks and challenges
First of all we have done this before here on Kickstarter so we know what it takes to run a project, overcome challenges and deliver a quality product.
We have spent the last year testing, designing, modifying and retesting and optimizing the Sarvi Dock 2 design for a smooth manufacturing stage. We took all the feedback from our backers on Sarvi Dock 1 and improved on the initial design. Now Sarvi Dock 2 is much better and refined design than Sarvi Dock 1.
After many early samples and test models we have made several 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 inquiries came in requesting more device compatibility. We listened and created the Universal Kit that works with virtually all factory and third party cables including flat cables. This way you can use the cables that you already own and even if you change devices you can be confident that Sarvi Dock will still work for you.
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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
