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. …

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, iPa 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. …

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.

Great little dock
I've had this dock for a year and am pleased with it. It charges an iPhone 5 with a bumper on and 6 Plus with silicon case on. It I've had this dock for a year and am pleased with it.

Not really sure why people expect these discreet chargers to accommodate devices with their cases. …

Not fit for purpose
I can only agree with the other reviews on this product. I bought this dock, got it out of the packaging and connected it to my M I can only agree with the other reviews on this product. I bought this dock, got it out of the packaging and connected it to my Mac fully expecting it to be a convenient extension for me to pop my apple products onto whilst sitting at my desktop and it didn't work - I thought it was faulty at first as my phone seemed to be docked and the packaging says it works with most cases but it wasn't until I removed both parts of my iPhone 5 Otter box case (Not something I ever usually need or want to do as its not a quick task) and connected the phone to the dock that I realized that it did in fact work. I then thought that at least I could use it for my iPad Air but although this fits better (I have this in a Belkin keyboard cover case) and actually connected it says "Not charging" which I assume is a compatibility issue. I wasn't 100% sure whether it would work with the iPad Air as the box states 4th Generation and I think the Air is 5th? so cant be too critical on that but in summary this dock is pretty much useless to me and I'll be taking it back to get a refund as the box is misleading. I would not recommend this product to anyone looking for a dock solution for Apple products. …

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.

It can be used. It says it works with cases, so the other answer is wrong
