Custom DIY Dock For Phones With Cases Or Extended Batteries

If you’re one of the many device owners that have provided protection in the form of a case or perhaps added an aftermarket extended battery, you’ll know how hard it is to find a dock that fits.

XDA forum member jonagpa has the solution to this in the form of a custom DIY dock, which ultimately will fit your phone perfectly.
