    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    does NOT work with SPECK case on iPhone 5

    • Written by from JAMAICA

    Title of review say sit all - despite what u may read on Belkin website it does NOT connect to the Iphone5 when the SPECK case is on. So I returned it and got the Belkin charger for iPad with the adjustable base/plug - and as an FYI - THAT also doesn't work with the SPECk case ON ! In fact when attempting to remove my speck case to make cartain that the connection was failing due to the case interference and not a mft defect, the SPECK case the case "ripped/cracked" by the volume buttons. So the Belkin iPhone charger went back yesterday and tomorrow the belching iPad /iphone charger goes back along with the supposedly indestructible SPECK case that cracked when attempting to remove it.
    U cannot use a BELKIN charing dock if u want to leave on a SPECK case.

    Does not fit a phone with a case

    • Written by from Oakland

    The product description, or a question answered on this site mentions that this dock will work with your iPhone in a case. This is incorrect and untrue.

    I have an iPhone 5s and the apple leather case, as well as the Tavik OUTER EDGE Bumper Case for iPhone 5 keep the phone from connecting to the lightning connector.

    Sure, I could try to find a case to work with my dock, but the point here was to find a dock that worked with my case.

    I would not recommend this to anyone looking to NOT take their phone out of the case before docking it, which is KIND OF a pain in the waist.

    Not functional

    • Written by from Austin

    Will not connect with even a low profile case on your phone. Why do they not build these things with an adjustment system of some sort to accommodate they extra length needed to connect without removing the case? I am not going to take the case off my phone every time I want to dock it/charge it.

    Doesn't work with the iPhone 5s cases

    • Written by from Orem

    Why can't someone make a doc that will work with a case? The lightning connector needs to be about 2mm longer and it would work with the case one. As it is, it's useless. Who is going to pull their case on and off just to dock. I bought this for my wife for Christmas and it's going back.

    Difficult to get iPod in and out of dock

    • Written by from CHICAGO

    I bought this because I listened to other people's reviews--the positive reviews that popped up first on the page. I'm very sorry I listened to the five-star reviews, instead of reading more of the one star reviews. All I wanted was a dock I can put my iPod into and out of easily. I'm telling you, this is not that.

    They say that this will work for an iPhone 5 or an iPod 5. I suppose it might work better for an iPhone, but I hated it for my iPod. The back of the charger does not correspond with the back of the iPod, so it's extremely difficult to align your iPod to actually plug it in. Hello, that is the entire point of a dock! Not only that, but the dock is too light, so you can't remove it with one hand. In fact, I found it kind of difficult to get it unplugged it all.

    I also have an iPhone 5, but it is in a case. With the case on, it absolutely will not plug into the dock.

    I'm returning this and am very sorry I did not read the reviews more carefully. When there are almost as many one star reviews as five-star reviews...I should've known better. I hope my review helps someone to avoid this dock and the hassle of returning it.

    Not compatible with Belkin iPhone 5 case!

    • Written by from Stratford

    Not even compatible with Belkin's own Grip Candy case. Their advice: remove the case before putting it on the dock.

    • Written by from North York

    Purchase the iPhone 5S with the nice Leather Cover. Also purchased a belkin 5 docking station however with the cover on you can not charge the iPhone in the belkin docking station, you must remove the leather cover. Either the Leather cover goes back or the belkin docking station goes back.

    Does not work if iPhone 5s is in Apple case

    I just got the iPhone 5s and the leather case from Apple. This desktop charger does NOT work if you have the phone in this case. Not sure why this charger was not made to work properly with an Apple case . . .

    Will NOT work with iPhone 5s seated in the Apple Case

    • Written by from Gloucester

    Just to confirm that if you have the new and very cool slimline Apple iPhone 5s case, designed specially for your great new iPhone, it will NOT fit this dock without having to remove it. I've had to return the item, to my disappointment. The new Apple iPhone 5s case is a type of snap-on and hard to remove/y on quickly. I have yet to see a good quality iPhone 5s docking system that can let you use the iPhone with the apple case. It is not that hard to design by simply extending the lighting connector for it to properly connect. Instead, I will have to buy a iPhone 5s compatible stand or the like and use the existing or new lighting connector cable to my Macbook Air..

    Won't fit a case

    • Written by from Halifax

    Despite what the description says, you can't use most cases with this, only cases with nothing on the base of the phone. If there's any additional material (like, Apple's own leather 5S cases) it will not fit.
