Xperia Z2 press_20_DK36Sony continues to kit out each new flagship Xperia smartphone with its own customised magnetic charging dock. We would love to see a one-size-fits-all solution but that doesn’t look like it’s coming anytime soon.

The Sony DK36 Magnetic Charging Dock is tailored towards the Xperia Z2, allowing you to charge the phone via the magnetic connector i.e. no need to remove the USB port flaps. As with the other magnetic docks, it offers two interchangeable inserts to charge the phone both with and without a case/cover.

UK retailer Clove already has the DK36 dock in stock for £29.99. It is still on pre-order through the official Sony Mobile store for £24.99/€29.00. However, the Xperia Z2 itself isn’t due to launch towards early April, but if you want to be prepared head over to Clove.

  • xperiax10.awesome

    Cm’on Sony – dont be a jerk.
    Respect your loyal supporters n stick with universal docking solution for atleast phones with exactly same design language !!

    1, Side bezels change, therefore the docks claw will also have to change in size to be able to hold the phone in place without blocking the screen.
    2. The xperia z obviously has a different pin location, but the z1 is the same, i’m sure you can use it to change the z2, but a portion of the screen will be blocked as the dimensions of this dock is different.

  • I hate to say it, but they should learn from Apple in keeping particular elements consistent so that accessories can be utilized across multiple devices. Charging is such a core task to owning a phone these days. It would also encourage upgrades within the Xperia line if I could keep all my accessories from phone to phone.

    That being said, I really want this phone, especially since it looks like the global D6503 model has all the LTE bands for everywhere.

    Apple consistent? Bollocks!
    iPhone 1G dock incompatible with 3G/GS
    3G/GS dock incompatoble with iPhone 4/S
    4/4S dock incompatible with 5/S
    Mini SIM > Micro SIM > Nano SIM
    30-pin charging > Lightning

    Forgot to add:

    5C uses a different dock as 5/5S. WTF!!!!!!

    There! Still think Apple is consistent???

    H2 2014 Flagship is gonna support 2.1A charging, data transfer and HDMI out from the magnetic charging port.

  • Freepat 75014

    That would be GREAT ! It would justify changing the docks and magnetic cables for a GOOD reason in that case…. But not sur if serious or just a dream….
    I own an Xperia Z1 bought end of Nov 2013. I love it. I have to DK31 magnetic docks, and 2 x USB magnetic cables too, all bough on Amazon for better prices. I love the magnetic charging since it does not wear the micro-USB port and its water resistant doors for multiple chargings required when using phone in data intensive manner with Geoloc Apps and WEB browsers opened all day long. Main missing thing is FAST CHARGING, both that way and via MicroUSB Port charging or both used in the same time. I tried everything myself, with a Samsung 10W/2.1A USB charger and a genius iWalk 10KmAH external battery, trying their USB cables, Sony’s and the Sony Magnetic cables and Docks, with single or dual connection (Dual = MicroUSB + Magnetic connected in the same time). All connection combination work,…. but it changes NOTHING, as it only charges as if connected to a single 5W/1A charger, never mind it’s connected to 1 x 1A or 2 x 1A, or even 2x 2A sources in the same time. Really disappointing, since it takes so long to charge, plus when using it while it charges you get that silly Error Massage saying you should reduce the usage as you consime more than what charger provides, so not only it does not recharge when in that situation, but it even discharges faster than if it was not connected to any charger… Strange.
    FAST charging will be a “Must have” for 2H14 refresh Flagship, plus USB3 and 4K Video capable HDMI/USB or /Magnetic. I would also recommend a recessed Magnetic port that holds better when cable or dock is connected, and can be found more easily when trying to connect le magnetic cable in the car while Tel is on its car support…

    The “one-size-fits-all solution” is to remove the actual cable from inside the dock.

    Slightly off-topic, bought the DK31 for Z1 which includes 2 inlays, one for Z1 with a cover, and one for it plain. The one thats meant for use with a cover actually fits PERFECTLY for Z1 compact :D

  • Rob

    I’m hoping this is bs. If what you say is true they are going to have to change the connector.

    Very interesting thing I just come across at MyDeals247.com – I could choose any number of pants and shirts (from the list) at very heavy discount rates (up to 75% off online) – more we buy more discount – I never seen this before.

  • Kristijan

    I have these charging dock for Z1 Compact, but my Z2 can be charged without any problem….and I can use it well.
