here you go... his was written up in another forum related to the android sticks....

"I began doing my research (google/ebay-fu) after i bought the lapdock for $50 back in January from att.com, refurbished. This extensive search process was laborious but necessary when dealing with these common and redundant terms!! Sooo many false positives and subtle but critical differences in descriptors, very frustrating.

I initially purchased the following, as my intention was using with a PC/XBOX 360:

Female Micro ("Type D") HDMI coupler http://www.ebay.com/itm/280761232832
Female Micro USB to Female USB: http://www.ebay.com/itm/270798436083
+ a standard Male Micro HDMI to Male HDMI and Male USB A to Male USB A from Monoprice.

I think the coupler configuration is brilliant for two reasons. One, you can use the more common/cheaper Male Micro HDMI to Male HDMI cable (that ships with most phones) AND using the two above cables, can connect side by side on the stock Lapdock connectors without any modifications.

In order to protect a host's (PC, xbox, bluray, embedded computer) host's USB ports, I cleanly modified (cut red 5v) the Micro USB cable. This way I can still use a standard Male USB A to Male USB A cable in order to be flexible with length. Traveling and taking lapdock for for use with HDMI laptop as second screen, or bringing over a game console... pack short cable. Using to toy around with a device tucked away? Use a longer A-A cable. Makes for tweaking HDMI driven HTPC and other small devices easy and convenient because of the portable nature of the lapdock. Battery powered console!

Now when it comes to the MK802 or android stick computers:

I'm not sure why everyone appears to be using two cables or a split cable situation, wasting a USB port. You can connect the MK802 to the lapdock in a very clean way with no MK802, cable or dock modifications whatsoever. When using the lapdock with the MK802 you actually do want to use the 5v coming up the Male Micro USB port along with the data pins (just like a phone would) so you can power AND act as USB host to make the trackpad and keyboard enumerate. This is the best combination of working cables and adapters to achieve this IMO:

Female Micro HDMI to Male Mini HDMI Adapter: http://www.ebay.com/itm/251070158825
Micro USB to 90 Degree Right Angled Male Mini USB Adapter http://www.ebay.com/itm/120934129696
Female Micro USB to Male Micro USB (& a bundled Female Micro HDMI to Male Micro HDMI!) http://www.ebay.com/itm/140853551886
(NOW DEAD--- Additionally, the same seller is selling the cables WITH refurbished Lapdock for $49.95 via http://www.ebay.com/itm/360469902090 making the lapdock $30!)

These are the exact item numbers of what i purchased back in July after obtaining my mk802. It works great and is very clean. you could probably train the cables and/or add some velcro to mount this, but i usually just leave it dangling off the back, these cables feel like they are made for this application! With the adapters in place the length is uniform and perfect. Even the notched right angle of the USB adapter snugs up into the Female Mini USB input cut-in on the MK802 case! I can confirm full USB functionality in android and linux. The two rear Lapdock ports are freed and act as a USB hub, so you can connect USB drives or wired LAN adapter. Additionally the MK802 still has its Full size port, which is great for a nano bluetooth receiver.

The third link is somewhat expensive at $10/cable (and if you only care about using this with the mk802, you dont NEEED the HDMI half) but they are extremely versatile and great for using the lapdock with another phone with USB and HDMI in Micro variety.

Regardless, I challenge anyone to find these obscure cables from ANY other source, much less at any other price.

I went a bit crazy trying to find the perfect cable set(s) back then. Perhaps now these cables and adapters are available from other sources or can be found at lower prices. Please link any finds."



its for the atrix. you need to flip the connectors around for other moto phones, or get the cable set i linked above

would you recommend using the cables instead of flipping the ports??? i like the idea of having it set in the back as well as putting it on the side....

up to you, i suppose it depends on what your more frequent application will be.

personally i dont own a phone that has this connector configuration so flipping for me adds no value, and with the cable set i can connect if i need to but otherwise normally use it with full sized HDMI anyway. from what ive seen flipping the cables around is pretty trivial.

Quote from Cloudsloth View Post :
I bought one of these a week ago, I love it.

I had to buy the female to male cables from ebay, additionally I had to carve them both with a knife to remove excess plastic so they could plug into this thing.

It's careful work, but it's really fun, and in the end you have a high quality lap top thing to plug into a computer, smart phone, tablet, raspberry pi, or what ever. Highly recommend this. It's incredible value (nice screen, keyboard, battery).

I recommend, after carving the cables, you plug them in and then hot glue them together so you have one thing to attach rather than two.
haha yah thats pretty ghetto.. check the links above for adapters that will fit side by side without 'carving' and dont require a stack of adapters (and use more common cables)

I bought the lapdock for my bionic for $60 and I love it. I sit through hours and hours of kids lessons and practices every week and it's so much nicer to have a big screen to web surf or watch movies or reply to emails and texts. If I was lugging around a tablet I'd have to worry about wifi or turn my phone into a hotspot. This is great.

Nice! My Atrix 4G may be getting long in the tooth, but this little gizmo will make me keep it a little longer. Perhaps I'll just retire it to WiFi only use after I upgrade. Like having another laptop.

These are perfect for watching movies on the plane, and some moderate web browsing.

Dont expect to replace your laptop

What moto phone do you have ? Atrix HD?

I have the atrix HD and even if you flip the ports, the phone will be sitting on it vertically and upside down which isnt a very secure method.

you buy this thing

http://www.ebay.com/itm/280761232...ID=1225267

and one of these http://www.amazon.com/eForCity-GO...B004I4YPB4

Or you could just mod the cradle further to add additional support for vertical standing phones, I have seen people use credit cards.

Oh yeah just remembered, if you do put atrix hd on lapdock cradle, it blocks the headphone port, which sucks.
