    Good charger but does not work with Apple case!!

    • Written by from Itasca

    This charger works great....except that it does not work with a case. More specifically, it does not work with the case designed by Apple for the iphone 5 and 5s. How can the charger not work with the case actually designed by Apple? One would think that the company would test and make sure that at least it worked with the official Apple case. But no, it does not. You will have to remove your phone from the case every time you want to charge.

    It would also be nice if this charger supplied enough power to charge an iPad. Its a bit cumbersome having to also bring an iPad charge to work when this dock charger is already sitting there.

    I was impressed with the sleek look of this dock. After purchasing one, it quickly became apparent that the connection, jack into the dock input, caused serious cracking noises through the speaker system. The slightest movement, i.e., just touching the IPod, caused serious, loud cracking noises. Figuring, that it was a lemon, and another surely wouldn't do it again (am fairly familiar with Belkin brand) I bought another. SAME ISSUE !

    My advice, stay away from this product. I am really happy with the High Rise by Twelve South. The design is actually sleeker, more functional, and definitely a higher quality product! The jack goes directly into the IPod, not into the dock, with another jack from the Belkin dock going into the IPod.

    Didn't work

    • Written by from Farmersville

    I didn't read any of the reviews so maybe this was mentioned before. I just returned my dock because it stopped working. When I first got it it displayed the message "his accessory may not be supported". I was bummed. I unplugged the phone and moved on. Then plugged the phone in the next day and it worked..... It was good for about a week and then it started saying "his accessory may not be supported" again. Haven't been able to get to work again for the past week. I wouldn't buy this if you intend to charge and sync.

    Worked great until 10.10.2

    • Written by from Monroe Township

    Apparently there is an issue with 10.10.2 that when you boot up your Mac and your iPhone is connected through this dock, the screen just stays black. I am using the latest model iMac and I verified the issue with Apple Support. When we replaced the dock with a straight lightning cable, and restarted the computer, it booted up immediately.

    It simply doesn't work after awhile on my iPhone 5s. Saying "not compatible". Don't but!

    I have to unplug and replug almost every time I dock my iPhone 6

    • Written by from Beverly Hills

    My macbook pro 13 inch late 2014 retina display laptop says that this dock is using too much power after I put my iPhone 6 on the dock. I have to unplug and replug the dock almost every time. Annoying to say the least. Also, it does not work with an iPad Air 2 in the Apple case.

    Fantastic docking system for any lightning capable iPhone.

    • Written by from North York

    I bought this dock for my iPhone 6 Plus and even with the Apple silicone case, it docks magnificently. It's absolutely beautiful. I purchased the blue dock to go with the blue case. They match perfectly! Great buy! Highly recommended!

    Doesn't work with a protective case

    • Written by from Lafayette

    While the product is very well made, it simply won't work with most cases installed on the phone - only on the naked phone. The lightening connector base is very wide and prevents the connector from plugging in fully and working because it hits the case. I think a redesign would make this a GREAT product. I am not interested in taking my phone out the case every evening. I am using an Otter Box Symmetry so a pretty thin case. Looking at my friends cases, none of those would work either.

    Hey! This is nice!

    • Written by from los angeles

    I am very happy with this product. I have an "Adopted" iPhone 5s leather case, the one that folds over the phone like a book, with a credit card holding component. (By the way, love the case) Anyway, the phone and the case fit just fine into this sync dock! It doesn't require two hands, either--just a gentle wiggle with one hand and you're out! I will be getting another for my work station at work. Thanks for the "just right" phone dock.

    Nice dock but doesn't work with any of my cases.

    • Written by from Toronto

    The first case I owned for my iPhone 5 & iPhone 5s was the black case by Apple. It has a pretty thick rim around the bottom of the case so the dock never got all the way into the port. Just bought my second case, an Air Jacket which is dramatically thinner, but still does not work. Basically, unless the case has no protection on the bottom of the phone it won't fit. Wish the cable's end in the dock was a few millimetres longer so that this wouldn't of been an issue.

    Belkin Rental

    • Written by from SURPRISE

    I have purchase many of these Belkin charge/sync docks and they look good, work really well, but only for awhile. Soon, they just do not charge the phone, iPad or iPod. It has to be the wiring of the device since it just seems to not work anymore. I will not purchase another. Would rather just have my phone on the desktop with a USB plug in.

    Will not work after iOS updates!!!!

    • Written by from BROOKLYN

    This charging dock worked great for a few weeks but when I updated the software on my iPhone5, it no longer charges. Only an error pops up and says it's not compatible. Very disappointing and now it's too late for me to return the dock. Is there any way to resolve this? Anyone else have this issue after updating software on your iPhone?

    Otherwise, it's a great charging dock and I had no issues with leaving my case on while docking/charging. It fit fine. I just wish it still worked for me :(

    Will not work with an iPhone 5S Leather Case

    • Written by from New York

    If you want to use this dock, your phone better not have a case. The dock will not work with an iPhone equipped with the Leather Case from Apple. Avoid using this dock if you have a case where the charging area is flushed.

    Good idea... Bad Execution!!

    • Written by from Martinez

    If you use a case for your iphone, this charger will not work! Let me repeat that... if you have your iphone in a case and plug it into this charger, it will not connect in order to charge. This lightning "plug" is too short!

    Belkin, good idea, bad execution! Most iphone users have some type of case so the lightning "plug" should be a bit longer!

    However, if you have to take the case off or if you don't use a case this is a easy charger to use.

    Works great with an Otter box case

    • Written by from Dale city

    I like having a stand type dock to charge and sync my 5c at home and this dock works perfect with my Otter Box case. It doesn't state it in the description on the site, but on the box it states "Compatible with open base cases". The base has some good weight to it so it isn't going to tip over easy when the phone is on it. The phone pretty much snaps onto the base on the connector, so you have to hold the base while pulling up on the phone to remove it. The standard charging cable snaps into the phone as well, so this isn't unexpected.

    Belkin dock

    • Written by from Bayswater

    Really disappointed in this product worked a couple of times. Since then it will not charge and have tried switching phone of and docking to charge, still will not charge. Frustrated paid $29 and useless. Ok I have 5 and wife a 5c.... Neither charge. Tried with iPad mini and guess what, same answer. Apple don't sell something that is not qualified to maintain quality. Grrrrrr......

    Does Not Work with a Case !!!!!!

    • Written by from Smiths Falls

    A waste of $50. The first reviews you read are misleading. This product does not allow the use of a case when charging. Yu must remove the case before using it.

    A wonderful accessory!

    • Written by from Gaylord

    The concept of the stand up charge dock makes total sense, and it should catch on fast. I love how it props the phone up while charging, so I can see if i've received any calls, text messages, or see any other type of notification without having to reach for the phone and lift it and look. It makes my iPhone much more hands free. The color options are great too! I wish it came in a yellow/lemon though :( Hopefully in the next round of production. Well worth the purchase. I own two.
