Sony DK52 Micro USB Charging Dock compatible with Xperia Z5 series

Sony Micro USB Charging Dock DK52_Xperia Z5_0Since Sony Mobile is not using the magnetic connector in its Xperia flagships anymore, it negates the need for Sony to release new charging docks per model. Instead, we have the Micro USB Charging Dock DK52 which is a vanilla dock, offering a simple charging function only.

It was initially launched for the Xperia Z3+, but will also work with the Xperia C5 Ultra and M5. Sony is also promoting the dock for the upcoming Xperia Z5 series, so if you want an easy-ish way to charge your phone then you may want to pick one of these up along the way.

    I’m a big fan of the magnetic dock.
    This looks odd with the phone in portrait and that plug coming out ready to penetrate its bottom.

  • xAntifreeZe

    magnetic charging dock in landscape is rly useful and cool, but in portrait? idk, seems like it will be a more troublesome way to charge (nvr used one of these DK52 b4)

  • Eduardo Otero

    It is still useless for me. I wouldn’t spend money on it

  • Amir

    This does not support qualcomm quick charging 2.0 for z5 series? if so, it is useless for me. The only viable charger is the uch10.

  • ????? ????????

    Quick charge 2.0 depends on the adapter/charger, not on the cable.

  • goldenblls

    Doesn’t look very stable either, like it could topple over and fall off the table.

  • lovebmw

    Let me guess $199.99?

  • Andrew Hilsdon

    Why did they remove the magnetic charging function?

    Personally I found this incredibly useful with the dock, I can put it on charge at night by my bed and not have to worry about wear and tear on the USB terminal.

  • Amir

    I mean that you wont get qqc with this dock.

  • Andrew Hilsdon

    Sony charging docks tend to be reasonably priced, I have the magnetic dock for my Z3 and I’m sure it was only about £25-35 which would make it about $50.

  • Matt

    you got quick charger compatible out of the box with z5 series =,=

    just connect it to the dock.

  • kaostheory

    Yeah like you’ve never been or seen that guy that has to prop his phone in a certain position just to get the USB to charge. I’d rather see the USB disappear and replaced with more/better WiFi.

  • Amir

    But uch20 that comes with z5 series box does not support qqc, how come?

  • fluxx

    The bad thing was, you have to buy the dock to make the loading process usable. But IF you bought one, it was actually more useful than USB. So on one hand, I regret they remove the docking, on the other it’s ok because it almost forced users to buy the docking station. Btw. I have the docking station for the Z2 and I’m really not impressed in terms of value for money. It’s a cheap, light piece of plastic with a Sony logo on it. I think for the money it costs they should at least add some weight to it, so it stays in place when undocking the phone.

    I bought a third party mag charge cable for use in the car with a window mount for my XZU

    I use the app “stay alive” :

    which stops the screen turning off for selected apps (I added G maps, podcast player, music player, phone/dialler to the list

    So not only does connecting it keep the battery topped up but also the screen stays on. Because the mag charge cable is so convenient, I do this even for short journeys (under 10 minutes), whereas if I used a microUSB cable I’d not so as to save wear and tear.

    However, I’d be happy to use Qi charging instead.

  • Okazuma

    The feature was removed because the connector takes up too much space inside the smart and while the USB allows you to charge the phone and transfer data.

  • Zarko Dragojevic

    I think the actual reason why they even put the charging connectors in the first Xperia Z Series was, that you don’t have to remove the flaps above the Micro-USB Port just to charge it.
    It’s also likely, they knew, that the water-resistance could get lost, when you use the flap a lot. Anyway since the new Xperia Z5 Series have an exposed Micro-USB Port there is no Need for the magnetic dock anymore. In replace they’ve placed the Micro-USB Port at the bottom of the phone, so you can use conventional third-party USB-Docks

  • mike

    use my magnetic dock everyday, extremely connivence.

  • Raj Singh

    I bought the first party magnetic charging cable from Sony. It’s super convenient to use with the Z Ultra. I very rarely need to open either flap.

  • Raj Singh

    Sony Mobile should make one charging dock and make it compatible with all the phones they put out. Bullshit money grab when they change it up… like they did for the charging docks on the earlier Z series devices.

    because all the reviewers and kiddies on lereddit complained about the flappy caps so they got rid of the usb flappy cap and magnetic charger. now if you break the usb port in the z5 you cant just fall back to the magnetic charger and its resilience to water pressure in the pool in not as reliable as the flappy usb models

  • Simon Setyadarma

    Buy the supported one..

  • Amir

    Yes, but it a bit funny people saying things that they have no clue about. I was right. This dock WILL NOT support qqc 2.0 and uch20 will not either. ONLY uch10 supports qqc 2.0.

  • Amir

    No. Only uch10 supports qqc 2.0.

  • Dannisi

    And a Chinese (fake) is $2. It’s a piece of cheap plastic with 2 connectors and a magnet. $50 is ridiculous.


    so means xperia with flaps are better resilience to water pressure compared to open usb port z3+ and z5 ?

    I agree, this is definitely a step backward for Sony.

  • Irirangi Ranga

    If my phones flat how long does it take to fully charge your phone on the dock

  • Leon Kennedy

    Does this dock work on the regular z3?
