    Found what appears to be a one day sale on the pogo charger for the Nexus 10. Just ordered one.

    As someone else already mentioned, it's sold out

    But... this is the first picture I've seen that shows the other end of the cable: it's a standard USB connector. Which, to me, is a dealbreaker, even if it is on sale at some future date. Doesn't that limit the amount of charging current that will be available to the port? I had original assumed that the other end of the connector would be a higher capacity power source. My first tablet, a Toshiba Thrive, has a custom (barrel) connector, but the tablet charges much more quickly than my Nexus 10 when I'm using that source (you can also charge the Thrive from the USB connector, but it's slow as mud)

    Pogo charger users, please correct me if I'm wrong about this.

    The Pogo will charge the device about 25% faster. Yes the wall plug is the same, but when the N10 gets the juice from its pogo port instead of via micro USB it takes it in faster.

    I would just like to clarify that this is not an Offical [as in from Google] Pogo charger. IF Google ever releases one it may indeed charge faster than the 10-25% increase users see over the Micro USB port.

    That said EVEN if it charged at the same rate as the Micro-usb port in my opinion it is worth it as it saves significant wear and tear on the micro usb port.

    Just got mine today. Charges up to 10% per 15 minutes. What quicker than Micro USB does. And I agree with the previous poster, saves on wear and tear on the Micro USB port. So far I like my investment.

    I got mine about two weeks ago, definitely charges faster, and I can raise brightness while charging and actually charge instead of staying even. Here's a BIG REASON why I like the pogo: using external flash drives/nexus media importer, requires: 1) your (only) micro usb port to be available 2) Lots of juice because the otg flashdrive seems to suck battery power quickly, probably because I use them for music and movies only. My only gripe about my pogo is it is a very short cable length, about 4' instead of the standard 6' mine is from magnectar.

    I have a USB extension cable I use when i need more than the POGO comes with. I've never measured my POGO but I think it is3' MAX.

    *IF* I understand the standards correctly, the fact that the device end of the cable is NOT a USB connector, they can get away with pumping more juice through it...however because it still uses the same charging block that the tablet came with (that is rated at 5V/2A), I'm not sure it would really make that big of a difference. To be effective, I would think it would need to come with it's own transformer that can deliver >2A.

    Again, I'm nowhere close to an expert on this subject or an electrician.

    Has anyone tried this cable with other (not the unit that came with the Nexus) 2 Amp/5V adapters? I have a number of them for iPads and other tablets.

    I charge my HTC One on an iPhone block and the Nexus purely on its own block, but now with the pogo cable. I charged the Nexus with the same cable that I use for the HTC One previously, but it took nearly overnight to change from 20% to full. So I'm glad that investment into the pogo cable is paying of.

    Is this the best charger to get? The default USB charger takes forever!

    Of you have a Nexus 10, this is definitely with the money. The regular USB cable just takes to long to charge. Great for a quick midday charge when I used it as an e-reader for work and know that they day is not over yet.

    Charges a lot faster than the stock setup.

    Dumb question but I assume you can plug this into the default Samsung charger thing that goes into the outlet?

    That is correct.
