      Won't work with Apple cases

      Purchased this charger having read that it will work with "most cases".

It won't work with the iPhone 5s and Apple case, nor with the iPad mini Retina Display with Apple Smart case. Neither device will sit far enough down on the connector to charge or sync. If you have either of these combinations, look elsewhere for a charging stand.

      Poor design

      We bought this dock, and unless you remove all cases, it just won't charge. Tried it with iPad (standard case), iPad mini (hard case), iPhone 5s (spigen case), We bought this dock, and unless you remove all cases, it just won't charge. Tried it with iPad (standard case), iPad mini (hard case), iPhone 5s (spigen case), iPhone 5s (gel case). The charging thingymagic just isn't long enough. The dock did charge when cases were removed - so 1 star, misleading description.

      Useless if your devices are in a case

      Do not buy this item if you have your device is in a case. Contrary to the description, I have to remove the case on my phone, iPad Air and iPad mini to use the Do not buy this item if you have your device is in a case. Contrary to the description, I have to remove the case on my phone, iPad Air and iPad mini to use the dock, which means that the dock is actually an inconvenience to use. I currently use a Spigen case on my phone, a smart case for the Air and Mesh case for the mini. The design of the dock is such that the much hyped dial to adjust the height of the connector is useless unless the recess on your case is similar in size to the old 30-pin connector. All the new cases have a much smaller recess so the connector base will not fit. It is a similar situation with Apple's own dock. With 4 in 5 owners using a case, I am at a loss as to why this design fault has not been addressed.

      Brilliant If Your Not Lazy

      I was hoping to find 1 review that actually commented on the main feature of this Dock, which is to charge and sync our Apple Products. Unfortunately it seems t I was hoping to find 1 review that actually commented on the main feature of this Dock, which is to charge and sync our Apple Products. Unfortunately it seems that I must be the only person capable of removing my Ipad from its case everytime I am at home and for charging etc. My case is just an extra for protection away from home.. This Dock is BRILLIANT with good instructions and very easy to use. I could not be without mine, EVER.. Yes Apple have made a huge mistake of stating it will charge your device whilst still in the case, according to the other Reviewers, but I neither felt this was important or necessary.. This Dock is a great way to Charge and Sync your device whilst keeping it well protected in the upright position. It works and does exactly what you want which is to CHARGE your product. I cannot believe that this product is being slatted because People are too lazy to remove casings... PLEASE... ITS A GREAT DOCK......

The problem is that the charger cable is set into a very large form factor - so raising and lowering the port doesnt help. Major design flaw.

      It doesn't work

In a household with multiple Apple products and a few broken leads, we needed to purchase an extra cha I cannot tell you how much I wanted to love this product. In a household with multiple Apple products and a few broken leads, we needed to purchase an extra charger. Rather than buy an additional lead (most have bad reviews) I decided to look at alternatives. In previous years I've had docking style chargers on my bedside table for my old iPod, so wanted one for our phones (5s and 6). We don't have cases on our phones, so I ignored most of the reviews that speak about removing the case for this charger to work. This charger doesn't work. For a while my partner was able to get it to charge his iPhone 6 if we place the dock and the phone on its side. I plug my iPhone5s into the dock and it doesn't even register they're connected to each other. Since removing this product from the box, it hasn't worked. I would highly recommend buying something else. It really is a waste of money and not a reliable charging device. Why didn't I send it back? Because I travel a lot for work and it arrived at a time I was out the country for an extended period so it was passed the normal returns period. That, and my partner threw out the box!
