Cube is made of 100% polycarbonate. We wanted to design a product which is fundamentally non-disposable. We wanted to create something that last, something that you want to keep for a long time. Polycarbonate is though and stable material, and it can resist a high temperature of 280°F and a low temperature of -40°F. It is stain resistant and non-toxic. Polycarbonate is the material that is used to make the bulletproof windows that are attached to security vans or cars. It is transparent like glass. However, polycarbonate weighs 6 times less than glass and heavier than ABS plastic, which are often used to make a number of other products in market. It is just about right weight. Not too heavy, not too light. Such characteristic of the material makes Cube safe around children and your pet. It won't break or shatter!. It is almost unbreakable. It allows cube to protect your smartphone. It is the ideal material for a home for your smartphones. The only disadvantage of polycarbonate is that it is more expensive than glass, acrylic and ABS plastic.

We wanted to give a smartphone its own space like our homes. We wanted something more than a conventional looking dock we can buy in market today. We wanted to design something that can do more than just charging your mobile device. We wanted to keep it simple and easy to use. At the same time, we wanted it to perform better and be useful in daily life. We wanted it to be unobtrusive yet elegant. We wanted it to be self-contained product which can interact with an individual's lifestyle or characteristic. And, of course, we wanted it to be a democratic product so that it is accessible to anyone who owns a smartphone.

We can't say it will fit inside Cube. It depends on the size of your Android smartphone.
However, we do not recommend Cube to those who own smartphones that charges on the side near the bottom. It will not work as an ideal charging dock. Cube is designed to accommodate a number of different types and sizes of smartphone. However, it cannot accommodate all types. We will solve this matter on the next version of Cube in the near future.
I have an android smartphone (non-iPhone) that charges on the botton with a mini usb charger. Will this work with your cube?
Yes, by fixing your USB cable at the bottom, you can lock its position. Mini USB charger will work with Cube.
Yes, Cube is designed to accommodate different types as sizes of smartphones. However, it doesn't accommodate a super-sized smartphone such as Galaxy note.
Cube is 3.3/4" x 3.3/4" (9.5cm x 9.5 cm).
It is designed not to be unobtrusive yet elegant and functional.
Polycarbonate is extremely tough and stable material that is used to make bulletproof windows that are attached to security vans and cars. It is different from ABS plastic. One of the most important features of polycarbonate compared to other types of plastics is its strength coupled with very light weight. Acrylic may be 17 percent stronger than glass, but polycarbonate is almost unbreakable. This is the reason why polycarbonate is used in the enclosures that are a part of modern banks and the windows in drive through restaurants. Polycarbonate is also just a third of the weight of acrylic and a sixth of the weight of glass. The only disadvantage of polycarbonate over both acrylic and glass is that it is more expensive.
