Versatile TogoDock Turns Any Surface Into Portable iPhone Dock and Charger

Wednesday February 12, 2014 7:00 AM PST by Juli Clover
Fuse Chicken, the company behind the multi-function Une Bobine iPhone stand, today launched a new product on crowd-funding site Indiegogo. Called the TogoDock, Fuse Chicken’s newest iPhone accessory combines a magnet-laden mount with an integrated charging cable, allowing users to turn any surface into a dedicated charging station.

The TogoDock can be mounted on any surface, from a wall to a car dash to a refrigerator. A built-in cable connects to the Lightning port of an iPhone on one end while the USB end can plug into a computer, a charger, or a car port.

"Our goal is to make everyday interaction with technology simple," said Jon Fawcett, CEO of Fuse Chicken. "Our newest device lets you mount and charge your iPhone anywhere – in the car as a GPS, in the kitchen to follow recipes, next to the bed as an alarm clock; togoDock is simple, cool and useful, and it fits right into your pocket."
The TogoDock can be mounted directly onto a magnetic surface using its embedded magnets, but may also stick to non-magnetic surfaces with an included self-adhesive disc mount. The product includes a built-in backstop for support along with a cable cord wrap and a car adapter.

Customers can purchase a TogoDock with a $30 pledge on Indiegogo and the first 200 backers will also receive a 3D printed PLUGdock designed to convert a standard iPhone charging cord into an outlet-mounted dock.

That's a lot of stress on the connector.

I am sure they realized that and built it so it can withstand that stress.


Are you? Nothing against these Fuse Chicken people, but all kickstarter/indiegogo projects are deserving of questioning, I think.

And given that the product incorporates a 'backstop', it would seem that if they did do some analysis, they decided a backstop was necessary for stress relief. In which case this product may be iPhone 5/5C only (potentially not compatible with a thinner iPhone 6).

Totally agree with you. Especially in automotive applications.

Did anyone else read this as "Toe-Go-Dock"? It seems they should've capitalized the G to make it sound like to-go like: "ToGoDock"...

I read it as Togo, but immediately thought of Togo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Togo). In Africa.

Anything that mentions adhesive will not step foot into my car. For that reason, I'm out. :rolleyes:
