Brilliantly clever product.
Sure, it's just a dock. Fundamentally, its only function is to turn your existing cable up by 100 or so degrees, but this provides Sure, it's just a dock. Fundamentally, its only function is to turn your existing cable up by 100 or so degrees, but this provides a lot of practical convenience, whether on your nightstand for charging, or on a desk for syncing and heads-up display.
Rather than design just another pretty dock basically impractical for anyone with an iPhone case, TwelveSouth has thoughtfully designed the HiRise to be nearly universally compatible with any case out there by using Apple’s own cable. This isn’t lazy, it’s brilliant. Because of it, this dock will work with almost any case that accepts the tiniest, highest-quality cable out on the market (and everyone already has one!).
This design choice isn’t the only thing that makes the HiRise great. It is clear from initially opening the box that TwelveSouth has put a tremendous amount of thought and pride into the whole experience. The stand exudes quality, as does even the packaging and assembly instructions. The allen-head cap screws have a secure and organized place in the box, and the allen key has a permanent home inside the base of the dock itself. Every single cleverly-designed step in the unbox & assembly process will bring a little smile to your face. It's reminiscent in this regard of Apple's own products.
Best part? The Lightning standard is new and expected to be around for a decade. Since this dock is well-designed and adaptable, it should last through many future generations of iPhones. In a market where we too often begrudgingly pay $30-40 for a molded plastic case to be used for a few months or a year before moving on, it is an absolute delight to pay the same for a clever, convenient product that is solid as a rock and will remain useful for many years. …

Beautiful and functioning stand
I needed a stand for my 5s and Mini, both with the lightning cable, and liked what I read in the reviews for the most part. I was I needed a stand for my 5s and Mini, both with the lightning cable, and liked what I read in the reviews for the most part. I was fortunate enough to order another cable accidentally as I felt I might need another one somewhere down the road. Completely skimmed over that part. So yes, it needs a cable to be an actual functioning stand.
When I got the box, I was a little surprised to see screws, an alan wrench, etc. to assemble the unit. It was a bit of a pain given that I have what my wife lovingly calls "plumbers hands", but I got it together, with cable, and hooked up to my PC in under five minutes. There were some negative feedback in regards to the plastic cover piece on the bottom. I have had no issue with it, and it seems sturdy enough to sit idle on my desk and not worry about it popping off. I had purchased two cases for my 5S and checked to see if it fit both, and it did with no problems (w/the included three adapter pieces).
Overall, it is a beautiful stand that, with my tech21 case, gets a ton of attention and subsequent compliments. I love the add to my desk space. A worthy buy, but I am giving it four stars accounting for the lack of a cable and mediocre degree of assembly. …

Great for iPad Mini!
Overall a great product! The stand feels very sturdy and was a cinch to assemble. It takes up very little desk space and looks gre Overall a great product! The stand feels very sturdy and was a cinch to assemble. It takes up very little desk space and looks great next to my iMac. I like that you can adjust the stand to fit your device without having to take its case off. One small problem I have is that the removable plastic piece on the bottom that conceals the cable isn't well attached. It falls off almost every time I move the stand. Other than that, no major complaints! …

Excellent Concept w/ Tight Specs
As other reviewers stated, it's an effectively minimalist design. However, like many minimalist designs, what looks and functions As other reviewers stated, it's an effectively minimalist design. However, like many minimalist designs, what looks and functions beautifully in ideal conditions usually means tightly restricted performance and maintenance. There is no room for error. So get this information right and you'll be happy with the Hi-Rise stand.
The packaging says "Works with Apple Lightning Cable," and I'd read here that cord thickness was an issue with this base. I was prepared, I thought.
The 1m length that came with my iPhone 5s is a little short, so I asked an Apple Store employee if there was a difference between the 1m and 2m lightning cable thickness. He said no. He was wrong. The only lightning cord that works with this is the 1 meter cord length from Apple. The 2m cable is thicker and will not bend tightly enough, or slip easily into the groove in the base.
So it's a great product if you only use the 1m cord. Twelve South needs to change their packaging to ** "Works only with 1m Apple Lightning Cable."** Twelve South should know that the longer length doesn't work, and note that on their box and online. I ruined a $30 cable, but it looks nice and works well with the 1m length. …

does it come with a built in lightning cable? If so - can it be replaced by the owner if damaged?

No, the stand does not come with any cable included. You are free to swap out cables as much as nee No, the stand does not come with any cable included. You are free to swap out cables as much as needed. I would also note that the stand is designed specifically for Apple's own Lighting cables. Other (third party) cables are not likely to work as they almost always bulkier at the the base of the tip of the lightning connector. …
