Adapter

Adapter:
"This solves the problem when used with a charging port adapter that plugs into the port (through the Otterbox opening) and then has the male end available to mate with the Belkin charge dock."
_
"The fact that it comes with only 4' of cord and no power adapter is a drawback for me."
_
"*Also to note, it only comes with a usb cord, no A C adapter for the wall in case you missed that detail."
_
"I followed others' instructions to modify the adapter itself in order to get it to work, but I think it's ridiculous that an end user should have to do this themselves."
_
"Adapter that fits into my phone broke off in less than a week, thank hod my husband had pliers to remove from piece from my phone."
_
"Also, it doesn't come with an AC adapter...disappointing."
_
"Including a wall adapter would have been a nice touch and as long as you don't have a case on your iPhone it is a great choice! "
_
"The unit did not include a wall adapter (USB end on the cable) so you will need to use a wall adapter to plug this into this wall, which I would think most people would be using this for; so it would have been nice to have it include a wall adapter."
_
"Which is not great, it feels like it could easily get knocked around in the wrong way which would make it easy to break the lightning adapter off in your phone."
_
"The dock charges the phone via USB plus adapter at a good rate when plugged into a wall socket (adapter not included) and syncs charges the 6+ at a good rate when the USB is plugged into a computer."

Audio

Audio:
"I wish it had an audio port, but that's my only minor complaint."
_
"My one complaint is the audio jack, which is only the standard two-channel stereo jack, and not the 3-channel needed for the controls on the headphones."
_
"It will be a nice charger for another location in the house but I'm disappointed it doesn't work in the computer and has no audio jack access."
_
"Before going any further, please note that the dock mentioned above, the Belkin Charge and Sync Dock with Audio Port for iPhone 5, which was originally sent to me by mistake is awful."
_
"It's fine if all you need is a way to charge your iPod Touch or iPhone, but there is absolutely NO WAY to charge AND output the audio, like you used to be able to do with older docking stations."
_
"Compatible with all Lightning Audio Docks, Speaker Docks, Docking Station...]."
_
"This is a review for the Charge + Sync Dock for iPhone 5 (the one without the audio port)It works perfectly with my iphone 5 and it looks stylish."
_
"It doesn't have the auxiliary plug for the audio, it is very nice to charge the phone & has a good viewing angle"
_
"I was also able to rotate the audio plug down out of the way when not in use, and provide a cable of the length that suits my needs."

_
"I used this with a pass through battery case and it worked great."
_
"The actual docking space is very wide which is both a good and a bad - my hubby likes to use a battery case, when we first put his phone into the dock it didn't feel very secure."

"Will work very well if the goal is strictly to be a battery charging stand."
_
"I find myself using my iPhone far more when at the desk... and while savings the battery as well."

Cable:

Charge

Charge:
"Same issue charges about 10 % in 30 min which is slow.. Maybe I have a defective unit?"
_
"ok charges fine but a bit disappointing since the connection is loose."
_
"Besides that though, it's still fairly light (got it to replace another one that was basically plastic and so moved around really easily whenever you would try to hook the phone up to charge) and probably would have become annoying frustrating if I'd kept it for a length of time."
_
"This worked great for my iPhone5 for a few weeks but when I updated my phone's software, it was no longer compatible with my device and no longer charges syncs."
_
"It its great and charges fairly well but the only hiccup is there there is excess space behind the phone when plugged which can be a little irritating but besides that it is a great product."
_
"Too much of a hassle to return - it charges the phone at least."
_
"Works great with a bare iPhone 5 - drop it in the phone charges."
_
"it keeps it upright and charges well."
_
"Charges well"
_
"The dock charges lightning fast and it's really easy to dock and undock the phone."

Charger

Charger:
"I have had no Unsupported Accessory errors that you sometimes get from third party chargers."
_
"I own two of these chargers (and two iPhone 6's) and only one of the chargers has this problem - so strange."
_
"Not a reliable charger:These are not apple certified - so will stop working at some point - i have some that have been working for over a year and a couple that only lasted a few month."
_
"I really like this charger; however, I can't love it because it blocks the headphone port (iPhone 5) which is a necessity for me."
_
"Unfortunately I purchased 2 of these horrible chargers for my apple phone and unless I take off my protective cover they won't charge the phone - big mistake!"
_
"I have a very low-profile case for my iPhone, and have never had any problems charging the phone in other chargers, with the phone remaining inside my Otterbox case."
_
"This handy little charger does a good job at charging your ipod and when compared to other chargers I own, this one seems to charge more quickly."
_
"I wanted a iphone chargers that I could put on my desk and that would be very easy to use but never have to be moved."

_
"I love these chargers."

_
"Terrible, it originally claimed it was a speaker, its only a charger and a crap one."

Connection

Connection:
"ok charges fine but a bit disappointing since the connection is loose."
_
"One failed in a few months (the connection was intermittent, and then eventually the lightning connector 'stub' actually came out of the dock) but they were still the only cheap option so I bought 3 more in May 2015 (1 for work, 1 to replace the broken one in the kitchen, 1 for wife's office)."
_
"Due to its small size, it's perfect for travel, although the lightning jack is sensitive to any type of movement and susceptible to breaking off if the connection isn't perfect."
_
"The last of the five recently failed, at some point the lighting connector just stops connecting."
_
"The base is too small for the phone and the phone wobbles and does not make a good connection to charge."
_
"I am very pleased and will purchase a second unit for my office (where I perform backups and software updates and intermittent connections could have devastatingly negative results)."
_
"This connected smoothly with our Mac and was able to charge and sync our phones without any problems."
_

_
"I should mention that the lightning connection snaps in pretty tight."

_
"The Lightning jack broke off within 2 months of use."
_
"Charger works fine, but headphone jack is now malfunctioning after only two week's use."
_
"connector broke in a couple of days"
_
"One might expect Belkin to length the Lightning connector a fraction to rectify this problem."
_
"The Belkin MIXIT Charge and Sync Dock with Lightning Cable Connector is a great dock ONLY when you do not use a case for your phone."
_
"Worked great until one day I had to push on the connector to keep it working."
_
"Spinido iPhone Dock with Lightning Cable Connector, Charge and Sync Stand for Desk Compatible for Desk Compatible for iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5, 5S, 5C"
_
"It's a great way to easily charge an iPhone, but stinger (connector) needs to be longer or have a smaller shoulder so that devices in protective cases can be charged."
_
"However, with even a pretty thin case on an iPhone 5S, the connector is not long enough to reach the female side of the equation so as to actually charge."

Cord

Cord:
"It seems silly that I cannot keep cords out of my toddlers mouth, he has ruined so many of iphone cords it isn't funny."
_
"I like that this is a base charger and wont break as easily as the flimsy cords that Apple gives you, but I feel like it charges my devices slower."
_
"We had broken numerous cords due to inferior quality on the connection points."
_
"All my lightening cords have all been ruined for the connection piece."
_
"Either it's a fault in the cords or the lightning port itself."
_
"I bought this primarily to resolve an issue I've been experiencing difficulty obtaining and maintaining a good connection with the various charging cords I have for my iPhone 6+."
_
"I love the other one I have so having one at home instead of cords every where was an amazing thought but it died."
_
"I like that this is a base charger and wont break as easily as the flimsy cords that Apple gives you, but I feel like it charges my devices slower."
_
"This charger does NOT have this problem and works fine with NO error messagesDifferences between This dock and an approved cord:-You can charge your phone while watching something (holds it upright)-Convenient reminder of a stable place to leave your phone (e. g. nightstand every evening, or by the door when you come home)-CON: While the speakers are unimpeded, so you can use them and hear them normally, you CANNOT use the headphone jack on this dock."
_
"He just wanted a good, reliable charging station so he doesn't have to chase the cords behind furniture or into the cushions."

Design

Design:
"While I realize that the charger itself is high quality and a nice concept, i think this is a pretty major design oversight."
_
"Nice aesthetics, good quality... they just missed the boat on the flexibility of the design..."
_
"Belkin neglected to design a modular stand, to fit iphone covers."
_
"Flimsy design with almost no support for an iPhone 6."
_
"Unfortunately, the execution of the design and the overall quality are just not there."
_
"I really like the design though, so I'm disappointed."
_
"While I realize that the charger itself is high quality and a nice concept, i think this is a pretty major design oversight."

_
"The basic design is great and they do reduce cable clutter charging footprint (due to standing the phones up)."
_
"This is a good compact design."
_
"This was a great idea in need of more design skill...The lightning cable sits in on a platform about as wide as the 30-pin iphone cables were."

Display

Display:
"I recently upgraded to the iPhone 6 and it will charge the phone to about 97% then stop charging and display the error this accessory may not be supported.. Just a heads up for anyone thinking of purchasing for the iPhone 6."
_
"I have 5 of these because they're sturdy and nice looking, but 2 of mine now display the This accessory may not be supported error when using my iPhone 6 Plus, and they charge unreliably."
_
"Good, but it may make up the display for the truth, but a great experience and you need a bit of adjustmentThank you"
_
"But still does to job, and is easier than plugging into a cord, and it displays the phone quite nicely."
_
"I used to leave a white cord just laying on my desk, but this thing blends perfectly with my MacBook Pro and Cinema display."
_
"Keeps the iPhone upright and visible.8 21 2015 Update:While this did work great, for some reason with the new Apple Cinema Display, when I plug this in, it kills my USB ports."

Dock

Dock:
"If there is one negative, charging through this dock is slower than charging directly to an outlet."
_
"I sat there and think if this is a case fault or the dock's fault, well it's the docks fault."
_
"Hard to recommend a dock that just stops working randomly after its return period is up..."
_
"However my phones are in case's and they do not dock well at all with this."
_
"I really didn't expect that this dock would be just as annoying to use with no case."
_
"Perfect little dock to charge and sync my iPhone."
_
"I got the Belkin dock for my work desk and it has done the job admirably."
_
"In the past, I've used Apple's dock but the reviews on the new one have been pretty spotty."

Fit

Fit:
"This is hard to use because my case doesn't fit over the charger so I need to remove it."
_
"Belkin neglected to design a modular stand, to fit iphone covers."
_
"Word of warning....even with the modification, it still was not able to fit my iphone with the Spidgen case I was using."
_
"The downside is that the phones don't fit the dock with the cases on the phones."
_
"It doesn't fit well if your iphone or ipad has a case cover, you may need to cut or modify your case to make it work."
_
"Unfortunately, it will not fit if you have a case on it."
_
"It fits fine, and perfectly even with a case on but with our without the case it still charges slower than any of the other Apple, or Apple Certified charging devices I have.. Syncing though when plugged into my Mac seems fast enough and no issues there...I like the look and the way it holds my phone upright - It just charges slow and I have used the Apple 5W USB charging port it came with.."
_
"The stand is rock solid, and the quality of the materials and the fit and finish are excellent--as one would expect from a Belkin product."
_
"I am using with iPhone 6 that has a slim case and it fits very well in a vertical position without removing the case."
_
"I see all the complaints on here so I don't know if they've adjusted this or not but my phone fits perfectly on here inside its case."
_
"Wow, that is pretty stupid because it actually was decent fitting working for the iphone 5.I wouldn't bother with it for the iphone 6 at all."

Headphone

Headphone:
"Charger works fine, but headphone jack is now malfunctioning after only two week's use."
_
"Second major complaint is that the iphones with lightning ports, also have headphone ports on the bottom, when docked there is no access to the headphone port using this device."
_
"I use the headphones to answer calls and it is mildly annoying to have to take the phone off the base to use it with headphone."
_
"Unfortunately there is not a 3.5mm headphone jack on the dock."
_
"I really like this charger; however, I can't love it because it blocks the headphone port (iPhone 5) which is a necessity for me."
_
"Nice charger, but I cannot plug in headphones even with a 90 degree angle plug."
_
"No access to audio port, so you'll need bluetooth headphones if you're gonna be listening to music while it's plugged in, but it's well worth it."
_
"It's a great product, though, so if the headphone thing doesn't bother you, I definitely recommend it."
_
"A rear headphone socket was a great feature of the old Apple brand docks (3G 3Gs docks) and I had used it to dock the phone while playing through the stereo."
_
"No access to audio port, and you cannot use the phone via headphones when in the port as well."

Heavier

Heavier:
"This is a certified cable, so you will get zero popups or warnings on iOS 7.My only complaint about the dock is I wish it was heavier."
_
"It's heavier than most so is not easy to knock over."
_
"It is heavier than it looks and my 6plus fit in perfectly without a case."
_
"It looks beautiful on my desk, but this isn't for those who have the heavier cases."
_
"The product is well constructed but could be heavier (it has a tendency to move when tapping on the screen)."
_
"While the dock has a decent weight and build quality, it would have been nice if it was a bit heavier."
_
"It would be perfect if it was a little heavier so that you could just pick up your phone and go."
_

Heavy

Heavy:
"Now, my case is easily removable, and so I'm using this because I like to have charging stations everywhere (seems like your battery is always low when you are expecting important calls) but if you have a heavy duty case, this could be a problem."
_
"The dock is heavy enough and balanced so that it won't tip over easily."
_
"The dock is heavy enough that your phone will stay in place and not tip over (although the dock is not heavy enough, and the connector is snug enough, that it's challenging to remove the phone with one hand)."
_
"This is a nice heavy, stable case but would be much more usable if the plug were a bit longer."
_
"With my iPad Mini 3, it is a bit top heavy but, it works great so, I can deal with it."
_
"The connector causes Phone to stand a good 1 4 of in each above bottom of groove causing it to be top heavy with an iphone 6+"
_
"It's heavy and sturdy and looks nice but you can't use it if you have a case on it."
_
"Nice and heavy."

Iphones

Iphones:
"Since most people put their iPhones in cases of some kind, it is not clear if this dock will be a good solution for those people or not, at least without trying it out."
_
"But there's a problem: she and I have OtterBox Defender cases on our iPhones and they won't fit the charger because the connecting probe is too short."
_
"Product is not compatible with IPods or IPhones."
_
"Second major complaint is that the iphones with lightning ports, also have headphone ports on the bottom, when docked there is no access to the headphone port using this device."
_
"I tested differents iPhones with the same problem."
_
"We have mostly iPhones and this is handy, works well."
_
"Great for charging iPhones."
_
"This is a decent dock, designed to be compatible with all Lightning-powered iPhones iPads."
_
"But no matter which of these iPhones you have, this dock is a fantastic choice! "
_
"With ample weight and solid construction, any member of the 5 series of iPhones will be comfortable on this dock."

Light

Light:
"My case is a relatively light snap-on, so it doesnt add abnormal amounts of thickness to the phone."
_
"My only slight complaint is that it's a bit light and lifting the phone will not release it from the dock."
_
"Some complaints were it was light weight, yes it's a little wider than a iPhone not much to it and you have to have your hand on dock to remove phone (Not an issue for me)."
_
"The only negative is that the base is quite light, so removing your iPhone 5 from the dock, requires a little force to separate eject it from the dock."
_
"I think it would also be great for college students because it's light enough to carry from place to place, yet big enough that they won't overlook it and leave it in a hotel or library."
_
"It fits nicely into my carryon bag and is light weight so it doesn't add to the load."
_
"Since it is so light, I ended up using pretty strong double sided tape on the bottom to actually make it stay in place when I pull my phone off."
_
"The iPhone becomes a clock as well as a night light; Very clever and fine design"
_
"It is light and easy to use."

Metal

Metal:
"This is NOT easy to do if you don't have a dremmel or really good metals cutters or sanders."
_
"The problem is that there is a metal structure under the rubber boot around the lightning connector."
_
"I removed my phone from the charger and the micro usb actually broke into my phone, I had to go to the apple store and they had to remove the metal piece with tools."
_
"Well I have a Spigen Slim Armor case that is quite slim (iPhone 5 Case, Spigen Slim Armor Case for iPhone 5S 5 - 1 Pack - Retail Packaging - Metal Slate (SGP10088), but unfortunately it is too thick for this dock."
_
"It is metal, possibly brushed aluminum and has a nice non-slip base."
_
"Really defeats the purpose of a 'quick dock'.The quality and finish of the metal dock is nice, but unless your phone is 'naked' do not bother with this product."
_
"- Feels good, not metal but almost feels like it."
_
"Fit and finish are superior and it is handsomely machined from metal not plastic."
_
"The only good thing I can think of about this dock is the fact that it's metal and weighted."

Plastic

Plastic:
"Cons:I have this weird plastic piece on the cable that looks like it's supposed to plug into the back to seal the dock... it doesn't."
_
"Problem is, the old design included a plastic pedestal upon which the 30 pin connector passed."
_
"For me, the problem is the plastic flap on the bottom that receives the charger."
_
"Nope, the thick plastic part of the otterbox outershell despite being a ways away from the port gets in the the way of the port sitting on the charger because of the abnormally large plastic support surrounding the charger meaning you would have to break the plastic of the outer case in order to get it to sit."
_
"Most flimsly plastic docks fail on this score, and require both hands, one to lift the phone and another to hold the dock down."
_
"To fix the problem I simply cut off the two pieces of plastic at the bottom of the protective case and it now works great."
_
"She has a fairly thin clear plastic case on the phone, but the design of the dock does not allow its lightning connector to insert far enough into the phone to make contact, no matter how much you fiddle with it."
_
"I colored the cut plastic with a black magic marker and it looks good."
_
"I don't have a thick cover on it I have a hard plastic case and I have no problem connecting it!"
_
"Works well but I needed to trim the plastic base so that my phone Iphone 6 Plus would actually seat down with a UAG case."
_
"I may try to disassemble it and shave down the plastic a bit like another user recommended so that the lightning cable makes contact with the phone even if you have a case."

Price

Price:
"Please people save your money, I wasted money on this product and very unhappy with it."
_
"Not a good dock I would recommend to others for the price and wrong product spec."
_
"As is par for Amazon transactions, you are kept completely unable to converse with the seller, so I guess I just threw that money away."
_
"Unfortunately there is nothing that's better out there for the price, so I am keeping it and using it."
_
"Mix that with the stand not being very stable (really bad with an iPhone 6+), and this isn't a that great of a device - especially for the price tag."
_
"Please people save your money, I wasted money on this product and very unhappy with it."
_
"Good quality for a fair price."
_
"It's a cute gift idea; price is good and just right for the ladies on your gift list."
_
"Yes, it charged good enough but the case was not cheap and I had to ruin it to use the charger."

Quality

Quality:
"Nice aesthetics, good quality... they just missed the boat on the flexibility of the design..."
_
"Unfortunately, the execution of the design and the overall quality are just not there."
_
"Disappointing quality considering other Belkin products."
_
"Otherwise nice design and good quality but missed the mark in being truly usable with Apple Cases."
_
"Good materials and build quality, the only disappointment was even my thin case did not allow me to charge the iPhone while it was on it."
_
"It's not very good quality, I wouldn't recommend it."
_
"Good quality for a fair price."
_
"While I realize that the charger itself is high quality and a nice concept, i think this is a pretty major design oversight."
_

Rubber

Rubber:
"The problem is that there is a metal structure under the rubber boot around the lightning connector."
_
"Was suppose to work with my Nokia Lumia 520 Windows phone but problems.. Had to take off rubber case holding the phone.."
_
"I totally broke my Galaxy S4, and replaced it with an S4 active, which has a waterproofing rubber grommet on the bottom."
_
"In that case, I would recommend it, but if you have a rubber case, or an Otterbox, specifically, it won't work unless you take the phone out of the case."
_
"WAY too thick to have a prayer), OtterBox Commuter (still too much protection for connection), OtterBox Symmetry (nope, not even with this thin case in place), my Speck Candyshell case, or any other case - that tiny little bit of Lightning connector that's exposed is just not long enough to connect with a case in place... and that's AFTER I removed the lightning connector port casing from the bottom of the unit, and cut away a good quarter inch of the surrounding rubber with my Dremel and its cutoff wheel in the flexshaft I keep attached to it."
_
"Also have 2 different thicker Clear rubber cases and they connect fine also!"
_
"I had to get a razor blade and trim some of the excess rubber molding around the connector, but works great now."
_
"The rubber pad does a reasonable enough job of keeping it from sliding around."

Screen

Screen:
"(There was one weird occurrence where I had to make sure my screen was locked otherwise strange texts were sent to friends.)"
_
"I got the privacy screen protector for my iPhone 5, so it's hard to see if it's flat on my desk."
_
"It works great and it's nice to have the iPhone screen in easy view next to my computer screen."
_
"The device itself has a tiny footprint and an added advantage is that it keeps my iPhone upright, so I can easily see the screen when someone calls or texts."
_
"- but what I really like about it is that I can easily see my phone screen while I am syncing to my computer."
_
"The screen is easy to see and the phone is always charged when I need it! "

Size

Size:
"The problem is in normal operation with no case or a small case, the phone itself doesn't even rest against the back."
_
"The front lip (where it says belkin) is a bit high, so getting the iPhone to read your thumb to index fingerprint is challenging (and I have small hands)."
_
"does the job nicely but it's a little hard to place the phone on the small connector in the dark"
_
"I had to cut out the bottom of my case in order for my IPhone 5S to fit on the dock - still doesn't sit very well and all the weight of the phone rests on this one small plug."
_
"Although the price was not a great deal Its a nice small dock."
_
"I often have issues getting my phone into the dock's cradle, but that fault lies with the small size of the lightning connector, not the dock itself."
_
"I was particularly pleased with the small footprint of the stand."
_
"I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box the Belkin charging stand is small, compact and cute such a pretty shade of blue."
_
"Works well but be aware that with some phone cases the size of the case may not allow the plug at the bottom of the holder to reach the lighting port on the bottom of the phone."
_
"The Belkin MIXIT charge and sync dock is the perfect size for travel."
_
"The color Red is so cute and the dock is small and portable."

Speaker

Speaker:
"Terrible, it originally claimed it was a speaker, its only a charger and a crap one."
_
"Please be aware that this unit doesn't play well with cases that cover the bottom speakers and lightning port."
_
"For the sake of anyone who might make the same mistake, just because this shows up on the top of the search for Nexus 5 speaker dock does NOT mean that it fits the Nexus 5 and it does NOT mean it is a speaker dock."
_
"Finally, there isn't a speaker output, very annoying."
_
"The only thing I dislike about this dock is the fact that it doesn't have speakers."
_
"Pros:Looks niceWell builtFits phones with casesWorks with iOS 7Cons:No music connection (so you can't play music through your speakers) - maybe there is a model that does that and I just bought the wrong one... don't knowVERY tough to remove phone with one hand"
_
"This is great, usb works with my iHome speaker."
_
"Putting it in the dock while it's hooked up to my Bluetooth speakers is a good way to avoid any more accidents, and looks a lot better, too."
_
"I also found it surprisingly easy to make speaker calls when using my iPhone 6."
_
"I love that we can have the phone in the kitchen and control the bluetooth speaker system for music when guests are over."
_
"Very good way to charge phone and use for speaker phone too."

Support

Support:
"Flimsy design with almost no support for an iPhone 6."
_
"An important caveat such as no case support should have been mentioned up front by the manufacturer."
_
"Poor support, poor fit and I'd not recommend this product to anyone!"
_
"Poor support, poor fit and I'd not recommend this product to anyone!"
_
"It provides no support for my iPhone 5.My big complaint is trying to remove the phone with one hand is impossible."
_
"Anyways it's really annoying that it doesn't support cases and I really love the dock itself but the fact that I have to take off my case before I put it on the dock is pretty bothersome please make one that supports cases as well please."
_
"It's got a decent weight to it and I like the support it provides for the back of the phone (instead of depending solely on the lightning connector t support the weight of the phone like Apple's dock does)."
_
"following is a better product and works with all with case or with out and has inserts incase needed for adjustment:iPhone Dock with Lightning Cable Connector, Spinido Charge and Sync Stand for Desk Compatible With iPhone 6 6 plus 5 5s (Updated version supports cases),(Blue)by Spinido"
_
"The hold does not support the phone well--it is too large."
_
"Doesn't support iPhone 6 all that well, but does the job."
_
"But once the Sugru was attached, it fits perfectly (and is the perfect size to support whatever case you might have)."

Sync

Sync:
"This Belkin Mixit Charge and Sync Dock is okay but as other reviewers have stated, there are a few disappointments."
_
"I am very disappointed with this charge and sync dock from Belkin."
_
"The addition of just a little bit (... okay, a LOT bit, actually) more length to the lightning cable tip here would make these charge and sync docks pretty awesome... but being unable to connect it to my iPhone 6s without completely removing my device from its case, be it a thick case (forget it, in this situation), or even a thin one (which is STILL a no-go from what I've seen, and I've got 10 different cases laying around here now), makes this dock pretty much useless for my needs."
_
"Currently I use it on a 6plus with an elago case without any charging or syncing problems."
_
"In my case, I'm using it as my bedside charger, so it's not a big deal slipping the case off and back on, but for using as a sync dock charge for my laptop, that'd be a bit more annoying as I usually want to grab my phone every time I get up and leave the desk (or wherever I'm using the laptop)."
_
"This worked great for my iPhone5 for a few weeks but when I updated my phone's software, it was no longer compatible with my device and no longer charges syncs."
_
"Perfect little dock to charge and sync my iPhone."
_
"A nicer way to sync your iphone to the computer."
_
"Overall, product delivers as advertised, it synced and charge without any problems."

iPad

iPad:
"It doesn't fit well if your iphone or ipad has a case cover, you may need to cut or modify your case to make it work."
_
"Bear in mind that it is for the iPhone and not the iPad and you will have no problems with this dock."
_
"Also, I believe this was more so deigned with a thicker device like an iphone 5 in mind as the back will not support thinner devices like the ipad air or iphone 6 very well because of the extra room when not using a case."
_
"i haven't tested with my iPad mini yet but I'm happy with this."
_
"I'm also happy to report, that while it's not technically designed for an iPad mini, it does in fact work and hold the iPad upright."
_
"That being said, it's a bit back-tipsy, but as long as you're careful and aren't constantly hitting the iPad, you shouldn't have any problems."
_
"If you have a larger iPhone6 this seems like it would be easily toppled over and definitely with an iPad."
