Ratings & Reviews
Good product, with some gotchas
I've been using mine for about a month now. Overall it's a pretty nice system, but does have a few quirks.
- The sound i I've been using mine for about a month now. Overall it's a pretty nice system, but does have a few quirks.
- The sound is really impressive. I'd expect nothing less from an iHome product, but it bears calling out.
- The alarm features are much more refined. You are able to set the wake-up volume, etc (whereas my previous ihome you usually hoped it would be at the right level).
- Can handle up to 3 devices (2 lightning and one usb). Really nice if you're a gadget nut.
- plugging in or unplugging a secondary device causes the primary device to reconnect. In other words, if i go to plug my ipad into the dock, my iphone will buzz as if its been reconnected.
- My primary device when the alarm is going off will also buzz / ring when the alarm is going off as if its reconnecting. I don't know if this is an issue with my system, but it's really annoying in the morning.
- secondary lightning dock is difficult to plug an ipad into (takes some jiggering) which is a result of how the connector is oriented.
- Secondary lightning dock is impossible to use if you have any kind of case on your ipad (i had a speck shell on mine, which is pretty thing). Often i end up using the usb port for my lightning cable so i don't wake my girlfriend up at night.
Bottom line, this is good if you have a bunch of devices, but there are some issues that still need to be worked out for the overall design. …

Not designed as well as its predecessor
I own the older iHome radio made for the previous generation iPad/iPhone connection. Loved it. Easy to connect to and worked wit I own the older iHome radio made for the previous generation iPad/iPhone connection. Loved it. Easy to connect to and worked with most iPad/iPhone cases.
I was expecting a similar, well-thought-out design.
Unfortunately, the connections do NOT work with even the thinnest of cases. The support personnel were aware of the problem and blamed it on Apple requirements. It just seems like the product of bad team work between the two companies. It just wasn't practical to remove the case for the iPad or iPhone every time I wanted to use it, so we just returned it. I mean, you can connect it using a cable rather than removing the case, but it's ridiculous that you can't use the docking connection with even a thin case on. …

Here's the Key...
If you have a case on your iPhone or iPad (like a very high percentage of consumers!) you'll have to get a lightning to lightning If you have a case on your iPhone or iPad (like a very high percentage of consumers!) you'll have to get a lightning to lightning (eight pin to eight pin) adapter. They're available on Amazon for a very low cost. This allowed me to successfully charge both my iPad and iPhone without removing the cases. However, the front charger sits precariously high with the adapter on it. The back adapter feels much safer for the iPhone but it's cumbersome getting the iPad connected.
That being said, this is obviously not an ideal situation. I haven't come across another alarm clock that charges two lightning devices, so, with the adapters, it's the best option that I'm aware of. …

Love it but have one issue
I got my iHome iDL100 as a graduation gift and wanted to use right away and it wouldn't work!! i was disappointed because i couldn I got my iHome iDL100 as a graduation gift and wanted to use right away and it wouldn't work!! i was disappointed because i couldn't use it at my party. It will not fully connect if you have a case on it. Doesn't matter what case, it will not plug in all the way. I have the apple leather case and it didn't work. I kept trying for the longest not even thinking that Apple would not think of making room for cases. BUT it's a great device and it works fantastic now that I can actually use it. It sounds amazing, I just wish I could have used it sooner. …
