Cool The P2 Power station/dock

ok, I got tired of waiting for Samsung to maybe think about the possibility of a dock. SO... I made my own!! Now I can have power to the P2 the entire day while listening to music (using a bluetooth headset). Also have a setup to bluetooth to my home stereo as well! Made it out of wood and used my cable that came with the P2. Now I have a nice little dock for work! Check it out and let me know what you guys think!

wow that (and you too) are awesome....
inspires me to make my own, except im not very handy and i dont have access to a bandsaw/hacksaw/or any paint...

also, how can you get the P2 to work even when connected to the computer? i thought it automatically goes into the charging/connected thing and wont let you use it....

When plugged into the PC, you can not use it... but when plugged into the wall via a USB power adapter, everything is accessable

Dude if you sold those on ebay I'd buy one.

BTW I just use WAmp or WMP to listen to my P2 when it's hooked to my work PC and charging.

That's awesome, I'd probably buy one from ebay too, and I hate ebay.

I was thinking of cutting a hole in my desk shelf for the cord and fashioning it onto that since I don't have a lot of desk space.

Hey, I would love it in plastic.. or even metal... but dont have the tools! Believe me... if I had a plastic molding machine, would be pumping these out for everyone! Cuz I know we all want a dock! Now I just need to learn how to CAD!

I cut the prongs off, so it just slides down and out. Works perfect!

you could get some plaster of some sort and make a mold and pour some with plastic, then you could sell 'em on e-bay for $20 or so.
