LG Nexus 4 CaseDuo Charge and Sync Dock - Black
Charge and sync your LG Nexus 4 with this CaseDuo Charge and Sync Dock from Monoprice!
This dock is specifically designed to fit the LG Nexus 4 smartphone. It provides a quick and easy way to charge and sync your phone. The cradle includes a plastic insert, which allows the dock to accomodate a phone with or without a protective case installed.
The dock connects to a computer or USB charging source using a micro USB cable. The kit includes a 3 foot micro USB cable as well as 1500mA USB wall charger. The dock measure 3.5" wide, 2.9" deep, and 2.4" high. It can provide up to 1000mA charging power to the phone.
-fits nexus 4 snug with and without case - slim case only
-package says blue LED to indicate charging but fortunately there isn't one as nobody wants that next to their bed
-usb charger does the job @1500mA so it will work with most other devices
CONS: -pretty much the exact same one you can get through various sites for similar phones
-packaging is a plastic retail box and is large, frustrating and wasteful
-no weight to dock. the phone fits REALLY snug with and without case and will always require one hand to hold down the cradle and another to remove the phone. this can be fixed at home with a magnet attached to the bottom of the dock and the polar opposite underneath your desk
-risking strain on the usb jack of the phone using this type of dock
-says monoprice on the front. Who wants that?
PROS: Its a Nexus 4 accessory
CONS: bad connector
CONS: Doesnt work with official N4 bumper
First dock I received was defective
PROS: This is a high-quality unit - solid build and great fit to the phone. I have a GreatShield Guardian S case (from Amazon) on my Nexus 4, and the phone still fits very well in the dock. The dock holds the phone snugly and securely, and the micro-USB port at the back works with your existing cable (though one is also included) to a USB port or the wall. The Monoprice logo on the front is classy, and overall the dock is sleek and looks great on my desk. I like the lack of LEDs or flashy indicators.
CONS: The USB jack can be a little stiff, and I worry that excessive on-and-off might damage the phone port I think as long as you're careful when you dock the phone there shouldn't be any problems.
A rear audio output port would be a great feature for future versions of this dock. (I've heard this is more a phone functionality thing than anything.)
PROS: -Made for Nexus 4.
-Removable insert for cased phones.
CONS: -Requires two hands to remove from dock.
Same comments are true of the car-mount re: fitting with the bumper in place.
CONS: Does not match product description
microUSB is, at times, difficult to engage - longevity of the port on the phone may be an issue after use of this stand.
PROS: Looks legit
CONS: Does not fit with a standard size bumper case as stated, with out case it does not fit very well at all, removable insert does nothing helpful.
