1. Fun & Convenience: No more plugging-in to charge, just contact it to the charging port. It’s fun!!!. You can also free up the USB port and charge faster. 2. Fast Charging Speed: It can enhance charging speed by approximately 25% and allow charging while playing games. You can start the device immediately even when the battery became fully drained. 3. Durable Use: Magnector has an everlasting use without physically damaging the port as it doesn’t need plugging/unplugging. Permanent (rare earth) magnet is key part of it for long lasting use. 4. Safety: It has an OVP(Over Voltage Protector) chip installed and is a magnetically attached power cable so that in case someone trips over the cord it detaches safely. MagnectorTM is patent-based product designed and made by Daehan Special Metal co.,Ltd. in Korea(www.e-magnet.co.kr). It has been selected as one of world-class products of Korea by Korean governmental body for its unique method of connect and the manufacturer’s high standard works with global IT giants.

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
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.
5-1.21 VDC -Data
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!
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.
- 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 "trouble shooted" this cable with different connections. To my computer, using the power plug that came with my Nexus. (recommended way) And then a couple of other USB power supplies.
I had hoped to use this as a way to continue to power my tablet while using it at a desk. But, it doesn't provide enough power to the tablet. In fact, if you have any background apps running, it simply doesn't charge at all. They advertise as charging faster than the micro-USB port on the Nexus. It is the opposite.
The only way I could get the Pogo to charge my Nexus at all was to turn the tablet off entirely and then it slowly charged.
I was busy after buying it and didn't realize how horrible a product this was until after the cut off for returning it. Or it would have been returned.
Do NOT buy this cable. It is expensive and as it turns out, a $4 micro-USB cable is more reliable and fast.
Amazon should consider dropping this company and their seriously flawed cable.
This cable is quite a bit shorter than the micro usb that came with the N10, which is a bit disappointing.
I'll update this review with some charging time comparisons once I get the chance.
Also, to correct some misconceptions running rampant on here, WHEN ORDERED FROM AMAZON IT IS SHIPPED FROM CALIFORNIA AND ARRIVES QUICKLY. People complaining about it coming from Korea and taking weeks or months to arrive ORDERED FROM THE MANUFACTURERS WEBSITE, not Amazon. I wish they would review the product, not the shipping speed from a completely different shipment facility...
