Goodnight, Sweet Universal Dock Converter
March 30, 2011 14 Comments
A while back, we released the Universal Dock Converter as a compliment to our Dock Input Cable. It provided a female 30-pin connection, and physically split out the charging and audio connections so customers could connect any audio device to an iPod dock or system and get that same functionality (in theory). However, as with the Dock Input Cable, we found that sometimes, simply providing the physical connections isn’t always enough to make some iPod systems “jive” (get it?!) with non-iPod devices (which is why we released the dockBoss). Regardless, we decided it would be a great “hobbyist” product that people could buy, try, and simply return if it didn’t work with there systems.
Fast forward to today, and the Universal Dock Converter has helped thousands of people connect non-iPod devices to iPod docking systems to enjoy charging and audio. Yet sadly, today, we sold our last one, and will not be getting any more in their current form. The Universal Dock Converter version 1.0 is no more. *moment of silence*
But fear not! We have not given up on our quest to allow you to connect non-iPod devices to iPod docking systems for both charging and audio. We are hard at work on Version 2 of the Universal Dock Converter (or whatever it will end up being called). No timetable for a release yet, so stay tuned right here for details down the road!
