    Very happy with this good-looking charger

    • Written by from NEWBURY

    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.

    Been looking for another lightening cable to charge my iPhone for a while (after nearly losing the one that came in the box) so decided to purchase the Belkin Lightening Dock adn Sync.

    At first I wasn't sure about the aluminium finish (looking for black to competent my phone) but setting it up next to my MacBook Pro I understand why Belkin went for the neutral grey.

    I now see my iPhones screen from across the room and my desk looks more organised

    Great

    Now, having been very disappointed with the version that needs a lightning cable attached, this one is really nice. The problem with the former is that the cable pulls through when you take your item off. This is so good I am ordering another so that ipod and iphone have one each!
