Check out the World's Only Wireless Charging Levitating Dock for iPhone

Share this:

When you are choosing a dock for your new smartphone, there are a lot of options available. You could go with the classic aluminum, like an EverDock, or perhaps something that has speakers, like an iHome, but I’m sure you’ve never even considered a levitating dock.  A new project on Indiegogo is aiming to give you this third option by providing you with the world’s only floating dock that wirelessly charges your smartphone.

The Levidock is not your ordinary smartphone dock; it uses a patent-pending magnetic technology that levitates the battery disk above the base.  The magnets in the disk and base allow you to use the smartphone while it’s in the dock. The disk will auto-adjust when you’re finished back to its original starting point. To indicate that the disk is centered again, four LED lights will come on.  Whether you have an iPhone 6 or a Galaxy S5, the dock will fit virtually any smartphone in any direction.  The maximum weight is 14 ounces and many smartphones are under this limit.

The Levidock's base is a perfect square.

The Levidock is the only dock I have seen that will float your smartphone and wirelessly charge it at the same time. I’m not sure if the reason is because floating docks are too difficult to make large scale or if the HOW Levitate team has invented a completely new dock design.  There are many docks that provide wireless charging, but this is the first to allow a space between the phone and the base.  My biggest concern is accidentally hitting the phone too hard and having it fall off the magnet in the base.  Other then this, it seems to be a very creative design.

The EverDock: Updated

The EverDock, found on Kickstarter has seen amazing success in their goal to reach $50,000.  The project went live on September 17th, 2013 with the plan to reach their goal amount by October 17th.  I believe they reached their goal in a little over 24 hours.  This project is currently at $319,025 with 3,377 backers and 9 days left.  Their first pledge was $39 for the EverDock in natural aluminum color (silver) with a silicone protector, a micro-USB cable and 2 cable adapters.  This pledge sold out first.  The next pledge is starts at $49 and continues up to $299.  As will all Kickstart projects, if you pledge money, it doesn’t mean you are getting the product.  It is all determined whether the project gets all the funding it needs.  But, as I said above, EverDock has all their funding and you will be getting one if you pledge.  If you missed out on the $39 one, I was lucky enough to pledge and I will be giving mine away to anyone who tweets or shares this post (more details in bold at the bottom).
