What is a prototype?

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.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

 $10 dongle will fix the iPhone 7’s biggest problem" - BGR

By now, everyone has seen many jokes and videos made about the lack of phone jack on iPhone 7. You could put a 3.5 mm to a lightning adapter, but that would mean you cannot charge the phone at the same time. We have a solution for you:

ILDOCK contains a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a lightning charging port, enabling you to listen to music and charge your iPhone at the same time.

For those who prefer 2 Lightning ports, we have created ILDOCK DUO which is the same style as ILDOCK.

Besides a headphone jack and lightning port, ILDOCK Plus provides ports for a SD/ TF card and USB. You can read pictures from up to 128GB flash card with ILDOCK Plus or connect to your USB drives.

Hands on review

Benefit 

No software to install. Simply plug and play. Now, you can listen to music via your favorite phone, charge your phone, and read pictures from storage to your iPhone, all at the same time.

Design 

Not only is ILDOCK the first to offer you 3.5 mm + lightning port, but it is also the best looking iPhone dock. We use aircraft grade aluminum and precision CNC to create ILDOCK’s beautiful look that will match your iPhone. There are five colors to pick from:

Superior Quality

We know iPhone takes a lot of daily abuse; that’s why we made ILDOCK extra durable, and its ports can withstand twice the physical wear and tear of a standard one.


Portable 

Not only is ILDOCK packed with features, but it is light and fits into your pocket. And you can take it off when you don't need it.

Convenience

ILDOCK lets your phone read flash card of your camera and copy files from them with out a computer.

Compatible

ILDOCK allows you to use it with or without a phone case, and it fits a wide range of case sizes.

ILDOCK not only works with iPhone 7 but with any iPhone or iPad with lightning port.

Why we need your help 

We started this project in January, when the rumors started flying about the future iPhone 7 having no phone jack. We figured that, even if iPhone 7 kept the jack, ILDOCK can still be a useful product for iPhone users. Now that the new iPhone really has no phone jack, we want to bring this product to market as fast as possible for all the iPhone users out there. We would need the money to mass produce and get certification to bring this product to you. That’s why we are offering our backers such an attractive reward. Please support us and let’s make this happen.

Guarantee 

If we cannot manufacture as promised, we will return your funds. We will take care our backers, because you believe in us, and we will replace any defective units.

Trademark 

We claim no ownership of trademark on products that are not made by ILDOCK. iPhone, iPad, and lightening port are Apple trademark.

About Taxes 

All international duties, taxes, or clearing fees are not included in the prices. We highly recommend you consult your local tax authorities first. Different countries have different tax policies. If you must pay the duties/taxes, but you refuse to, your package will be abandoned. If that happens, we can neither ship another package nor issue a refund.

Risks and challenges

As is also typical for other projects, there can be unforeseen delays depending on the production pipeline, component availability of the factory and also the order quantities to fulfill. To avoid these problems, we have already signed agreements with key suppliers and contract manufacturers who have extensive experience in manufacturing and product quality controlling. Currently, design for ILDOCK is complete. And the functional prototypes of ILDOCK have been well tested. We are ready to begin the manufacturing of ILDOCK. No one wants to see a good idea execute poorly. But we have confidence in making our project well developed by cooperating with our experienced manufacturing partners. And if delay occurs, we promise to keep you informed timely.
