    Stopped working after iOS 11

    This used to be a great piece of kit (though for the watch I always had to revert to the original Apple charger to apply updates). Now though it doesn't support charging of the Apple Watch Series 1 since the iOS 11 update. Maybe I have an older model but it looks the same as this one.

    Glad I ignored the negative reviews!

    At last a convenient bed side stand that charges both your watch and phone with no buzzing or high pitched sound at all. I purchased two and they do the job well. I almost didn't purchase because of the negative reviews but I'm glad I gave it a shot.

    No noise, excellent charging dock

    I had viewed this charging dock before Christmas. Having read the many critical reviews claiming that the transformer was noisy I determined not to buy one. However, my wife bought one as a Christmas present so, of course I had to try it. Much to my delight I found that there was no noise whatsoever from the transformer which is plugged into a socket very close to my head when I am in bed; my sleep has never been disturbed by noise from this charging dock. This is an excellent charging dock that I am happy to recommend.

    Nice looking but poor quality power adapter

    I had the same issue with the noisy power adapter that other had reported. It was ok to begin with but then after a few weeks use I noticed it emits a high pitched buzz which is extremely annoying considering this the bedside is an ideal place for the phone and watch charger.

    Shame.

    After updating my Apple Watch to OS3, it can no longer be charged on this. Phone after iOS 10 upgrade does still charge however. Disappointing.

    Nice Looking Product that does what it says on the box.

    I looked at many charging devices for my iPhone 6 and iWatch sport, most are of cheap quality and utilise the original charging cables in the set up which means utilising two plug sockets.
    This device by Belkin has just one power lead that serves both devices, it reduces clutter on your bedside cabinet and does the job, it charges the phone and watch quickly and quietly.
    The real plus is the charger connection for the iPhone has a height adjustment wheel on the back of the unit that means you don't have to take your iPhone out of the case.
    I love the product, I have found no noise being emitted at all and my hearing is pretty good.
    Just for the record my Belkin was bought direct from the Apple store, the watch was bought in the USA and the iPhone 6 in the UK.
    I would definitely recommend this product, just a tad expensive but in comparison to the others out there it is way ahead.

    The squeal is real

    As previous reviewers have mentioned there is a high pitch charging sound. The stand is a lovely design, but the noise means it's useless as a bedtime charger as you simply can't have it anywhere near you when charging.

    Lovely look.... Horrible, horrible squeak.

    I have great hearing and this is shocking. It's like this plug has a heart beat, it's the only way to describe it. You will notice this more at night when it's completely silent. If your not a heavy sleeper then this isn't for you.

    Would be 5 stars. But this is terrible. I hope this gets read and actioned accordingly.

    I think Apple shouldn't sell this product until this flaw had been rectified.

    Anything which has an interchangeable plug clearly isn't designed for the UK voltage.

    It's going back.

    Great quality item but let down by the squeal

    As already mentioned I get this high pitched squeal, not from the dock but from the adapter. Belkin were very good and sent me another very quickly but it does exactly the same. Such a shame as it looks great and does its job - just let down by the adapter.

    Might see if i can find a replacement adapter. Not wishing to be rude, but those not hearing the noise could just not be hearing it as it is really high pitch, one of those sounds some can hear and some can't.

    Come on Belkin fix the adapter problem

    Works perfectly

    My wife bought this unit for me, & I have read the previous review and listened to my charger. I can't hear any noise from mine. I like the look of it & it charges quite quickly.

    Absolutely horrendous - DO NOT BUY

    I bought this even after reading the first review for this product regarding the squealing that the dock makes, and as above when the dock arrived the package was well made and looked good, the item is really well made and looks fantastic.

    However, the charger emits a high pitched squeal that can not be silenced. After hunting for it, its is not the dock, but the actual plug, so unplugged it and silence, back in and the noise returned. As with the other review, I couldn't sleep with it like this so unplugged it and returned it. It has been in my house for less than 36 hours.

    Don't waste your money on this

    Good product.

    Looks good and works well. Makes no sound when charging which was mentioned on the other reviews.
    It only connects to the mains and not your computer with is disappointing. It wound be a lot better if it connected to USB and you could manage both devices in iTunes.

    Looks great, and is great !!

    When unboxed, you are greeted by a beautifully made and striking looking dock for your Watch and Phone. This looks great next to the bed, and is the perfect companion to keep both devices charging over night, without the requirement for finding and plugging in your chargers.

    Fortunately, I have not had the issues stated in other reviews regarding a squeak type noise from the dock during the charge process. For reference, I have an iPhone 6 and Apple Watch (not sport, or special edition).

    Overall, very happy with the purchase. However, would be good to get clarity from Belkin as to the reason for the noise, as I can imagine this is frustrating as a bedside charging device if this was to occur.

    Looks great but................

    I opened the box and was really please with the quality of the dock, set it up and great, holds both devices and really pleased with it. I had the device next to my bed to charge over night and with smile on my face prepared to sleep.

    Then....

    The quiet squeak from the doc as it charged the devices was there and nothing would stop it. It drives you insane as you try to sleep. Such a major disappointment and makes the device unusable for what I bought it for. Talked to the Belkin service people (eventually) and no help so it now sits there unplugged to use for quick charges and overnight back to cables,,,,,,
