Charge/sync your iPad&iPhone, Made from aerospace grade aluminum, fine bead blasted then anodized for a perfect finish.

To find out more about this product and to pre order your own Billet Dock go to: www.billetdock.com our online store should be ready to take pre orders on the 04/23/2012 and we expect to be shipping our first batch by 06/30/2012

We designed and built “The Billet Dock” - Exquisitely machined from a single billet of aerospace grade Aluminum this is the same way apple make unibody MacBook's and iPad's and it comes in a range of finishes to cater for most tastes.

It works with or without a case or with a case! - The Billet Dock utilizes a cam pad that spins giving a continuous range of support settings allowing the dock to suit different thickness cases and different model iPads. To switch from one to the other all that is involved is rotating the cam support, it takes just seconds to do while the friction level is controlled by internal springs stopping the pad from moving when you don't want it to!  

Perfect to use with “Air Display” or “Display Link” as a second or third screen on your computer –We use our Billet Docks in the office every day with the app: “Air Display” to use our iPads as a second screen, and we know you will love the stylish, functional second or third screen too! In fact we are so sure we have gone one step further and developed a Duplex Billet Dock! This model will house both the iPad and the iPhone and is a must have for any office desk. The Duplex model is a sophisticated integration of both the iPad and iPhone Billet Dock models.

Improves iPad Sound Quality -  The Billet Dock has a special internally machined resonance chamber designed to enhance the acoustics of the Dock making the iPad sound great, making FaceTime calls sound better. It is also angled back 10 degrees so you are perfectly in frame of the video. During physical testing we have found that the acoustic chamber and vents add about 10 db @ 70db!

Perfect for your kitchen, coffee table or desk - Our Billet Dock makes it easy to for you to enjoy your iPad 1, iPad 2 and new 3rd generation iPad 3 in any situation, in any location any time you need to use them and when you need to take it with you just grab your iPad with one hand and run out the door! Ensuring it is always charged and easy to use on a bench or desk.

Undocking is too Easy - Just use one hand to place the iPad in the Billet Dock or lift it up - no bending, shaking or using two hands! This is achieved by a custom made 30 pin connector and is aided by the solid aluminium construction.

 It’s literally this easy…

An obsession with quality -Billet Docks are individually CNC machined from solid billets of aerospace grade aluminum, completed with stainless steel fasteners the result is a finish quality that can't be achieved using cheaper manufacturing methods such as casting. We will be offering 5 finishes: matt aluminum just like apples unibody Mac’s and the iPad, along with anodized Pink, anodized Black, and anodized Red. Plus special edition Kickstarter Lime Green.

Precision Engineered and Machined by the best - Tracmac Engineering, is a race engineering company that values itself on becoming a world leader in design and manufacturer of race and performance products. We have taken time away from our major projects to do something for our day to day lives using the same design philosophy and expertise that we put into all of our designs whether they are for the race track or your coffee table, we take pride in what we do and would not put our name on something that is not Applesque quality.

Finish Exclusive to Kickstarter -Pledges at the highest level will receive a lime green version of the Billet Dock. This premium finish is exclusive only to Kickstarter backers who have helped get this to market and won't be available after the completion of the Kickstarter project.

Making it easy for you to check our design – We want to create a product to be compatible with most of the cases people are using. So we will test and tweak the design to cover the majority of case types where possible before shipping and post information relating to the styles and combinations of iPad's and cases that the Billet Dock will work with.
