    Nothing fancy...didn't think there would be. But I have a problem with using things and not knowing whats in them. Here is a shot of the Verizon Dock opened up.

    Nothing more than plastic, small cable and a weight.

    It would cost me more than that in time spent to reproduce it.

    I believe that "weight" you call it is actually a magnet to trigger the dock mode. :)

    No, the magnet is located in the arm that comes up that the back of the droid lays on when its docked. Its just a weight. Tested it to make sure.

    hmm, that makes sense. it's funny, cuz i bought a "universal" car mount, and put my own magnet in. it appears to be about the same shape and size, but mine was pretty strong, sorta worried me. anyways, the only way i could mount the battery in the right spot was was if i put the magnet perpendicular to how it's supposed to be. yet suprisingly, it still works.

    There was a guy who was making ones out of metal and then powder coating! They are solid units and cost the same. I have had it for a couple weeks now and it blows the stock one out of the water and it can be used with a protective case!!

    Wow!!! Did you put it back together again? I like my MM dock but I would like to dimmer it a little more than the dimmer allows. Any suggestions? so far, I have solved the problem by putting a piece of loose wieve cloth on top the phone.:unsure:

    Thanks for the autopsy! I was wondering if it might be possible to push the adaptor up a little higher to allow the use of a skin or hard case on the Droid....

    Anyone think this might be possible? I don't have a skin to test it with.

    I didn't think there would be alot inside of it to begin with. I love mine, it does what its supposed to do and its solid.

    Thanks for the autopsy. I am glad to know what it looks like. Not that I really wondered.

    As stated before, it is really solid and does what it is supposed to do.

    that is also the thing i dont like about it. you have to take your case off when placing it on the dock. same for the car mount too.

    but over all i like it. paid 14.99 for mine at Version.
