It appears to be well made and looks smart. My only gripe was its main selling point, that it can be used in conjunction with "most" cases. I,ve tried 3 cases to date including one of Belkin's own without success. If this attribute is the main reason you are considering purchasing make sure you try before you buy! …

Great Dock but not perfect
The dock itself is very well built with a decent weight but beware that if like me you use headphones while at work and wish to pl The dock itself is very well built with a decent weight but beware that if like me you use headphones while at work and wish to plug your Iphone 5 into the dock YOU CANT.
That Apple chose to put the jack on the bottom this time around is a pain in my opinion but if you do so at least get the accessories to be able to cope with this new design.
When I get home I will take a drill to the black plastic part and make room for the jack on my Bose headphones; should be easy enough. …

Very happy with this good-looking charger
It is a desktop lightning charger, is well styled, elegant and functions perfectly. I use it for an iPhone5 and a 5th generation i It is a desktop lightning charger, is well styled, elegant and functions perfectly. I use it for an iPhone5 and a 5th generation iPod touch. The iPod has a after-market transparent back shell and fits into the dock just fine.
Some reviewers have reported that the charger does not work. The lightning connector is designed to latch in place, and so the iPhone needs to be firmly seated on the lightning connector. I found that it took a lot more force that I expected, and I was worried about damaging the connector at first. However, I quickly got used to it, and it is now a reassuring connection.
Some other points to know before purchasing:
- There is absolutely no way that you can remove the iPhone from the dock without holding the base unit. This is because of the latching effect of the lightning connector.
- The dock is the same width as an iPhone and you will not get a headphone jack plugged in whilst charging. I've not experimented with a 90degree adaptor; this may fit.
- Lastly, the lightning connector can rotate forwards and backwards, and you will want to adjust its position so that your iPhone rests on the backrest. …
