First, the wiring of the Pogo is symetrical. This means you do no damage if you accidentally reverse and force the connector on. It is mechanically able to be installed one way, but experience tells me someone out there will try to force it on upside down.

Secondly, i really measured the supply current at the 0% charge level with the USB port plug as .288A,
with the Pogo, it was several times higher at 1.670 A. recently added this info. At the very minimum, according to USB standards, the output current can go to 1.5A or even a bit higher, according to Wikipedia. My own measurements prove this.

The voltages are either direction as follows:

1-Gnd straight to usb

2-1.21 VDC +Data

3-5.25

The +5 volt lines are shorted together at the POGO side, ultimately coming from an internal 8-pin IC regulator labeled P3X (No other markings) for surge and voltage regulation. It appears that we could make one of these for a dock, but at $19.99, why bother? These are, considering the engineering that went into this, an outstanding bargain, and item to own if you love your Nexus 10.

4-5.25

5-1.21 VDC -Data

6-Gnd

The data lines when shorted together as they appear to be here, simply put the charger into the dedicated "charge" only mode, allowing more current to be output.

So far in my own testing, only the original Samsung charger has the 2 data leads at 1.2 VDC.

Personally, I have ordered an extra wall charger and an auto charger from Samsung, who if you register your device will give you a 50% off coupon to use towards those purchases.

Get this now if you own the Nexus 10!

From the time I plugged it in, it's already charged from 84% to 90% in about an hour. Works much quicker than the mini USB charger. As already stated in another review, I think it should be mandatory to box these cables with the Nexus. The charge time with the USB was ridiculously too long. Now I can actually run apps while charging without still seeing my battery percentage dropping.

This is a must have for any Nexus 10 owner. Don't get me wrong, I love the option to use the micro USB and am really glad Samsung included it for the convenience, but I got this for the reasons listed below.

Reasons for getting:
- Protects the Nexus 10 from tripping on the cable (I have little kids running around, and this is essential).
- Easily plugs into Nexus 10 in the dark and light (my wife goes to bed before me and now she can't get mad at me for turning on the light to plug in the usb charger).
- Saves the USB port from wear and tear over time.

Perks:
- Charges a little faster (which is a very nice perk indeed, since I mainly got this for the reasons above).
- Fits perfectly. I love sliding the connector around the bottom and then feel and hear the click as the magnets pull it into place (either I got lucky, or the reviewers who say the charger doesn't fit are putting it in upside down).
- Quality (this looks like the authentic cable meant for the Nexus 10).
- Shipping was super fast.

Easily worth the $$ if your circumstances are the same as mine. Easily worth it even if they're not. Hope this helps people who are deciding if they want to get it or not.

I like this cable. It attaches easily and I have a Poetic cover installed. It is a one way attachment. Look closely at your Nexus 10 and you'll see that the attachment magnets are keyed; there is a rounded corner. This cable has matching magnets. Mine only attaches one way. I feel the magnetic attachment is far superior to the clamping action of the USB. My USB attachment feels sloppy. I can't see how it can go wrong. Now my USB connection can be saved for when it's necessary. Got a Nexus 10? Get one of these!

Pros:
- Sits perfectly in the Pogo dock
- Charges quickly
- Shipped quickly
- Slight depression on the top side of the Pogo end makes it easy to quickly seat the plug correctly

Cons:
- USB cord could be about 2 or 3 feet longer

I love having this instead of the usb charger. It charges more rapidly and is much easier for others to use. I feel much safer knowing that my 2 year old can now pull the cable off without breaking the usb port or usb cable. The only improvement that I could see would be allowing it to plug in both ways. Due to the shape of the Nexus 10 you can only plug it in one direction -- I feel they could have molded it work both directions, but then again I'm a software guy, not a hardware guy. It can come unplugged easily if you're working on the Nexus at the same time as having it plugged in, but it's not that big of an issue since the battery usually lasts all day anyway.

After getting spoiled with the wireless charging with an HP Touchpad (it runs great with Cyanogenmod Android on it), I couldn't imagine using another tablet without it. But this POGO charger is the next best thing to wireless charging. It magnetically clamps on to the tablet and charges faster than a micro-USB. The first time around it seems like I had barely turned around and my Nexus 10 was at a 100% charge again !
