    Whoa big fella! I read your post and I understood "secondary" location as secondary on the tablet (IE. Primary = USB; Secondary = Mag port). No offense meant.

    You're welcome for the effort.

    I actually did take the time to read you post. I understood "secondary" to mean secondary on the tablet... IE. Primary = USB, Secondary = Magnetic connection. No offense meant.

    Agreed - same reason, I declined. They should just open a storefront on Amazon and start selling there - more convenient and more trustworthy.

    Received my Pogo cable today. Ordered 1-6-2013, shipped 1-7-2013, received 1-22-2013. This is 2 weeks from ordering to receiving, not bad for something that has to come from Korea.

    The cable appears to be very well built and has strong magnets. Charging my Nexus 10 on it right now.

    I purchased on the 6/1, it was dispatched on the 8/1 and it arrived here (Sydney, Australia) on the 21/1. I hadn't checked the mail all week.

    The website is fine, it uses Paypal to process the payment.

    Update: Mine arrived today. Shipped on January 7th to the US, so consistent with other shipping times I've seen on this site. Works well, so far.

    Ordered on 1/9/13, received 1/23/13. Paid using PayPal. Shippedvia Korea Post and had to clear customs in the process.
    The cable chargess fine (seems a bit faster, but this is subjective), seems well made.
    I'm happy with it.

    I ordered mine on 1/9, it shipped 1/10, and originally arrived on 1/22. I wasn't home and it required a signature, so I just picked it up today at the post office. I am in California. Shipping time does seem consistent based on the other posts in this thread.

    Agreed that it shouldn't charge faster unless the USB has a bad connection, but does anyone know what max amperage the N10 can draw when charging? That's the key. The stock wall wart delivers 2 amps. I've got a 2-porter that delivers a total of only 1.5 amps (crap product). If I can read the fine print, the white Apple wart puts out all of 1 amp. Someone suggested a 3 amp wart that's on Amazon, which I just ordered. It's spec'ed at up to 3.1 amps on both ports. But again, what will the N10 take?

    I tried 3 different wall wart chargers, one was a 4A one and they all charged at the same rate (5%/hour). The difference is either in the stock charger or the stock usb cord that gets us 20%/hour

    Ordered one from amazon (Town Communiction) on Jan 24 and it was delivered to Florida on Jan 29 , $5 shipping charge. It is 4 feet long and appears to be of GOOD quality.....magnetically clicks into place snugly. I have read in another post that there is no wrong way to attach the pogo connector ie. No up or down. It appears so.
    I have not done any comparative tests with the stock charger, but will leave this to other experts. I have ordered a wall wart from Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/PowerGen-Charg...idcentral00-20

    It will provide 3.1 Amps.....plenty for the N10 to draw from, I should think.

    The following post provides a good technical perspective on the Pogo:

    That power gen wall charger u got is tricking you. Alot of sellers do this on amazon. They will write 3.1a charger but if you read details its divided by to ports so you only get 1.5a per port. When i buy a charger i make sure it always has one port at 2.1a.

    Thanks for the tip. The specs, which I paste below seem to indicate up to 3.1A, presuming I suppose that you are only using one port. Do you think they might be misleading? I may have to cancel the order???

    I actually just got that charger today...
    Anything you want me to test out in the morning?
    Guess I could plug both the n10 and galaxy nexus in and see if they both read AC charging?

    sent from a Nexus, nothing less will do...

    That might take a little longer to find out... but Ill see what I can do

    on a side note, the battery life has greatly improved after a few cycles...
    at first I only got about 5hrs of screen time and I was at 25% (mostly running the daydream screen saver)
    this last time I got 3hrs of screen time and Im only at 75% (mostly streaming a movie over wifi)

    Nice. Mine isn't quite as good I don't think but it's enough for what I use it for until I get home.

    That is normal for Lithium batteries (actually for most all rechargeable batteries) it takes several cycles to get to peak capacity. Then they will slowly deteriorate after that.
