Can you leave your case in place when you charge the iPhone 5?

Some docks will only fit the phone w/o case.

    I bought a Tech21 impact case, and wanted a docking station that would allow me to charge the phone without removing the case. I bought the Belkin dock at the Apple Store, and asked one of the staff to let me test it out in the store before I left. Alas, it didn't fit the phone with the case on -- the Lightning adapter needs to be just another 1/8" longer or so for the phone to fit securely on the dock. So I returned it immediately. It says "compatible with most cases," but I recommend testing yours before you leave the store.
