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 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. …

So-So Dock for iPad Air
It works with the iPad Air, but it's not a perfect fit. When in place, the iPad Air doesn't touch the bottom support so it is a bi It works with the iPad Air, but it's not a perfect fit. When in place, the iPad Air doesn't touch the bottom support so it is a bit wobbly - only the lightning connector contacts the bottom of the iPad. So it charges, but if you're not careful, it can tip slightly to either side and not make a connection and the iPad will not be charging. I think the problem results from the change in shape of the bezel of the iPad Air from previous iPads - the discrepancy is only a couple of millimetres, but it makes a difference. Also difficult to line up the connector with the receptacle in the iPad. Works well with iPhone 5. …

Useable but not w/ iPad Air 2 Smart Case
Yeah, don't bother if you intend to charge an IPad Air 2 and you want to keep the Apple Smart Case on it. The hole in the Smart Ca Yeah, don't bother if you intend to charge an IPad Air 2 and you want to keep the Apple Smart Case on it. The hole in the Smart Case is not large enough to allow full penetration of the lightning connector into the Air 2 socket. That makes it worthless as a charger for a fully enclosed Air2. The Naked Air 2 works fine so if you use a smart cover, it will work. I am nervous putting my naked Ipad Air 2 on it, something about the relatively narrow base feels like it is going to break the lightning connector or get the Air 2 will be knocked to the floor. I don't want my $800 Ipad to hit the floor.
The unit itself is nicely made but you have to use a USB charger that came with your iPad or keep it attached to your computer USB port for charging. …

Love it but...
We have two of these in our house for use with both iPhones and iPads. Yes you do need to remove the case but if you aren't using We have two of these in our house for use with both iPhones and iPads. Yes you do need to remove the case but if you aren't using the device it's not exactly a problem.
My biggest issue - which is currently being investigated by Belkin's fantastic customer service team - is that one of the two began overheating, smelling of plastic and then stopping working altogether. As I say Belkin were very receptive to me reporting this and are investigating the problem.
I have to add that I am not going to slander the product because of this, as you always get the odd one or two of a mass produced item that is faulty and given the manufacturer's speed and response, I believe them to be a reputable and caring company.
If you want a bedside/desktop dock and don't mind removing your cover! …

Great little dock

Can this dock be used for the new iPad Air (5th gen)? It states the 4th gen is OK. I would think it would work since both have a lightning connector.
