Fit Of Dock Cable In IPad 2

Mar 20, 2011

Noticed this when I got my iPad. I was using my iPhone cable to sync the iPad to the computer and noticed that the cable was a very tight fit, much tighter than any IDevice I've had. After a few times it became much easier to fit the cable in, but I noticed that the cable left to very very small marks on the metal around the dock port where the cable goes in.

I then compared the iPad cable to my iPhone cable and noticed that the iPad cable, the metal triangles that physically hooks the cable in appear to have gentler tapers.. My guess is that apple redesigned the cable and the new dock port is slightly smaller. Anyone else have the same issue?

Don't really have much problems with it but kind of an oversight on such a minute detail since I'm sure many people like me have older iDevices and use the same cables as well. Haven't had any problems with the old cables either so I wonder why the change

Airplay Speakers - Listen Music Without Having To Dock IPad Or Connect Via An AUX Cable

Dec 1, 2011

My family recently got my mom an iPad 2 for her birthday. Now that Christmas is coming up I thought she might enjoy some speakers to go with her iPad so she can listen to her music.

Now, it would be great if she could listen to her music without having to dock her iPad or connect via an AUX cable. I've seen Airplay speakers advertised in a couple of sale papers, but I don't really have a lot of background knowledge on them. After a quick search online I didn't really come across a huge selection.

Does anyone have any suggestions for Airplay speakers? I'd like to get her something that is relatively simple (smaller, easy to set up...). She also doesn't need anything with "fantastic audio quality." She just needs something that is simple, wireless, and can causally listen to music with.

Charging Dock Extended Cable For CCK?

Aug 6, 2011

I just bought the OEM CCK, but I have a polycarbonate shell that has an opening that is slightly too small for the Camera Connection Kit.

I'm going out of town really soon so I would like to order it and have it by wednesday.

USB Dock Cable New Color Markings?

Jun 18, 2011

I noticed that the USB dock cable shipped with the iPad 2 now, have white color stripes on the 30-pin metal connectors instead of grey. In the beginning it was grey like the iPhone/ iPod connectors. Is this common or did I just happen to get a weird one?

Dock Connector Cable To Hook IPod

Jun 22, 2010

Being a cheap poor ba**ard that I am, I bought the 16 gig iPad. It does fine but I am very selective on what I put on it for space reasons. I had a thought, why not have a dock connector cable to dock connector (hook iPad to say a hard drive based ipod with a hell of a lot more storage than the ipad, I have a vast library of movies ). I am sure this is just a pipe dream and people will say that it will cause people to not buy the bigger capacity iPads, but who cares. I want a cheap alternative. Well to all who think I am crazy, fire away with your insults, ridicule, cheap shots and so on, I promise I will not report you because I love reading this garbage.

Dock Connector Cable Created Scratches?

Jul 11, 2010

Howdy everyone, I've searched the forums and I discovered one thread about the USB cable creating scratches to where you plug in the cable but my cable has created grooves into the side of the slot. It looks as if the "teeth" of the USB cable sliced into the sides of the slot. One on each side. It is noticeable as the grooves start on the outside of the slot. Is this normal?

Low Profile Dock Extender - Dock Connector Cables

Apr 23, 2010

So I'm looking for a cable that has the new apple low profile dock connector on one side and a female dock connector on the other side. Cause most iPod interface cables have big bulky dock Connectors and it won't fit in the spot I'm looking at. I even tried looking for a female USB to female dock connector couldn't find that either. Do they not make thin dock connector cables?

Flexibility Dock Vs Dock And Wireless Keyboard

Apr 6, 2010

Just checked in the online shop and the ipad keyboard dock is $69 which is the same price as the wireless keyboard. The ipad dock is $29 so basically there are two options with a difference in cost of $29. I think for an extra $29 i had much rather have the flexibility of the dock/wireless keyboard combo over the fixed keyboard dock.

Wont Dock In Dock When It Is In Its Case

May 4, 2010

Just got an ipad this morning and have to say that I love it except for two things.1. once it is in the case, it is impossible to get it out of the case. 2. when it is in the case, it will not plug into the dock. the dock connector is too short since the case has a seam that protrudes out just enough.first mod is to cut the opening in the case out more so that it can dock properly.
