Dock chargers have become a home essential to smartphone users, whether they want to play tunes in blaring fashion or just letting it stand as you watch movies. In most instances, these docks can only fit the phones, but not when they are in cases.

Product designer Adewale Adelusi-Adeluyi knows this all too well. His 17-month-old daughter loves to play with his mobile devices, all of them equipped with protective cases to prevent accidental scratches and drops. In doing so, his devices cannot be plugged into charging docks without having to remove the case, thereby defeating its purpose.

Determined to find a solution, Adelusi-Adeluyi teamed up with Sarvi Designs, a startup company based in Texas, and developed the Sarvi Dock. This charging dock can charge your mobile devices in any type of case, whether it is the iPhone, iPad, or even Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets.

The Sarvi Dock makes use of your device’s factory cable, which you wire through the aluminum frame to get your started. It sports a connector that can be adjusted by 15 degrees, allowing the dock to support devices even with thick protective cases like Otterbox or Lifeproof. Adelusi-Adeluyi told Mashable his dock is a perfect solution for people who switch between different cases.

The makers of Sarvi Dock have put its product to Kickstarter last week for potential funding. As of this posting, the campaign has reached over $13,000, halfway of its $26,000 goal with 26 days to go. Early backers can pledge for a black or silver dock for $25, or choose a package that includes two receiver kits (enabling you to switch between iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones) for $34. Backers from outside United States will have to shoulder shipping and handling. The Sarvi Dock will retail for $49.
