Thanks to Kickstarters Arq Dock 1.0 was a great success. We took the feedback from backers to create Arq Dock 2.0. The new design does everything the old design did and then more. You can use the Arq Dock 2.0 by itself, in small groups or nested together.

The chart above shows you what to pledge for the number of docks you want. The one time $15 flat rate international shipping has already been added into the international pledges.

 Arq Dock 1.0 can also Nest with Arq Dock 2.0

You can now use factory and 3rd party cables including USB 3.0, 30 pin and Mini Usb in addition to Lightning and Micro Usb cables.

 Arq Dock is easy to assembly as shown in this video.

 With Arq Dock you can adjust the height of your connector and back support pins so cases of different width and height can be used.

 Arq Docks can be arranged to fit your lifestyle. They look great wherever you need a charge - Nightstands, office desks, kitchen, end table etc etc

                        

 Arq Docks were inspired by the utility and space saving features of Nesting Furniture. CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminum, bead blasted and then anodized for a simply exquisite finish. Below is a 3D 360 interactive representation of the simplicity of Arq Dock.

 The funds raised will be utilized for packaging, freight, manufacturing and meeting the MOQ requirements of our manufacturing partner as we have already invested in the tooling and molds required. We have already successfully produced Arq Dock 1 so we know what it takes to get it done. We are working to ship the products out in December and the dates may change depending on the pledge volume.

 Arq Docks were designed by Jelena Tomic, Bojan Smiljianic and Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi. We are a fledgling design studio and our cumulative backgrounds are in industrial design, illustrations, engineering and marketing. 

We place a premium on well thought out design, attention to detail, time management for our projects and exceptional customer service. You can view our past projects here on Kickstarter "Modo", "Arq Dock" and "QooQi"

 Thanks again to our old and new backers. We could not do any of this without you. Now lets all go spread the word and get this funded!!!

Risks and challenges

Arq - Modular Nesting Dock V2 - is our fourth Kickstarter project so we have the experience of successful and well managed projects under our belts. We already made Arq Docks V1 and had great feedback from buyers. This round we added much more functionality and now more devices can be used with Arq. You can view our first 3 projects here on Kickstarter by searching for "Modo" and "QooQi" and "Arq Dock"

When manufacturing any product there are always unplanned variables that spring up. At BAS we have spent the last 14 months testing, designing, modifying and retesting Arq. After many early samples and test models we have made 12 fully functional final product prototypes with our manufacturer - Shown in the video above.

We believe that by communicating effectively with our backers and providing regular updates we will be able to set right expectations and produce an exceptional Kickstarter experience for all involved.

We also have a manufacturer that has a wealth of experience manufacturing similar products. We have the right team and with your help we will bring Arq to the market successfully and on time.
