    Love it

    • Written by from Memphis

    I love it. That's all I can say about it. It's sturdy, charges pretty fast and you can sit it on your nightstand for convienence.

    A nice stand

    • Written by from Hillsdale

    This stand securely supports and positions the iPad to be charged and synced. In my opinion, its one flaw is that part of the front is covered up and I dislike that just for the looks, but it does keep the iPad held secure.
    -Recommended as an extra convenience-

    Apple iPad2 Dock

    • Written by from Williamsburg

    The Dock is narrow, and it allows the iPad to rock under varying conditions... Ask yourself how long will the iPad's connecting port last under the stress of supporting it's entire weight by its connecting jack? I obtained my iPad 2 & dock less than 6 months ago, the dock no longer charges the iPad. Is it broken? No. The oblique angle simply no longer allows proper connection. I now have to similarly stress the original cable when connected to coax a charging connection. Pass on the dock and just use the supplied power cord.

    Smart Cover doesn't fit.

    • Written by from ERSKINEVILLE

    The concept of the stand is great, but when you have the full package including smart cover it doesn't fit with the cover attached.

    Adjustable Docks are the answer!

    • Written by from HAMDEN

    The problem with all of Apple's docks (iPad2, iPhone, iPod) is, that as soon as you put any case on your device, however thin, it no longer fits in the dock. Charging your device is impossible without removing the cover. In the case of my 64GB, iPad2, a thin Mareware protective back cover for my iPad2 renders my dock useless. Knowing that people are going to want to protect such an expensive investment should be taken into account when Apple designs their docks. A little extra wiggle room wouldn't be so difficult to design into the docks.
    "IDEA!!!!!!", maybe even some front to back adjustability, to accommodate different size cases.

    Tired of hearing you can't use smart cover with this product! YOU CAN!!

    • Written by from catasauqua

    You CAN use the smart cover with this product so stop saying you can't. Just put the iPad 2 in the dock with the smart cover OPEN then after the i pad 2 is in the dock simply close the cover. When your ready to use the iPad 2 simply pull it off like usual. When your finished repeat the process. i can't believe you all complain, when all that needs to be done is something simple... Americans are getting lazier and lazier.

    DOES NOT WORK WITH IPAD SMART COVER

    • Written by from Rockaway Park

    the unnecessary lip at the bottom prevents you from using this with the super awesome smart covers... how dumb can they be? I'm supposed to take my cover off every time i put it on the dock to charge?

    Only works well with a naked iPad - no covers

    • Written by from Crouch

    The dock doesn't work well with the smart cover on. You have to leave it partially open, which makes it a bit unstable. Otherwise you have to take the smart cover off completely. I also bought a thin gel cover that slips onto the back of the iPad to protect it. Now I cannot use the dock at all, but the gel cover is such a great accessory that I refuse to do without. The gel cover was designed to use with the apple smart cover, but is not an Apple product. The smart cover is a pretty good stand if you are happy with landscape mode for your photo frame, so I would not recommend the dock unless you have money to blow.

    Should fit with Apple Brand iPad cases

    • Written by from Chaska

    The Smart Case interferes and doesn't allow iPad to plug into this Dock connector. Shouldn't have to pull the iPad out of the case just to use this - sort of defeats the purpose of a case, doesn't it Apple?

    terrible design

    • Written by from CLAYVILLE

    Why on earth would apple make a stand that doesn't fit if you use the case they make? It won't even work with the smart cover they make and sell! Ridiculous. I'm returning it, terrible design, terrible product, very disappointed Apple would make something this poor.

    Improvement over original iPad dock

    • Written by from SAN FRANCISCO

    The previous version was smaller, less stable and you could only dock the iPad naked. The new dock is bulkier and heavier for more stability. The trick to docking the iPad with smart cover is to open the smartcover, dock the iPad and then you can close the cover.

    Can't believe these price points!

    • Written by from Bay City

    $29 for a weighted piece of plastic that holds up the iPad 2. It works nicely, though you can forget entirely using a cover with the iPad if you are going to prop it up with this. I just cannot believe that the accessories for all things Apple are so incredibly expensive!

    I will check back in five business days to see if they "allowed" my review. I will be shocked if they did.

    Meh

    • Written by from Manassas Park

    Can't fit the iPad in the dock with the smart cover on. That's a pretty glaring flaw.
    The iPad doesn't connect easily, it's a bit awkward to get it snapped in.
    Doesn't support landscape mode.

    Love it

    • Written by from Lewisville

    Do not be dissuaded by the negative reviews of this iPad 2 charging dock. It works and functions perfectly for me. I could not ask for anything more. It makes my iPad 2 even more valued that it already was.
    And I use my Apple Smartcover always. There are 3 ways you can do that.
    1. Leave the Smart cover on your iPad. Open the cover, place the iPad into the dock. Then close the cover. Not difficult, folks.
    2. Leave the Smart cover on your iPad. Simply fold the cover into a triangle on that side of the iPad and leave it attached to the iPad. Place the iPad into the dock. Duh.
    3. Gently pull the cover off. Fold it into a triangle and set it behind the dock. Place the iPad into the dock. Easy. And no, the smart cover has NEVER scratched my iPad.

    Simple.

    • Written by from Trussville

    I don't get it? Why is everyone complaining about this. All it does is hold and charge your iPad 2. That's what it was made for.

    For everyone's information, you are supposed to take the smart cover off before putting it on the dock haha

    Dock vs. cover

    • Written by from Williamsburg

    I purchased this dock to work with my new iPad and because other reviews indicated it would charge an iPhone4. Here's the straight answer: If you have an Apple cover on your iPad you must either open it or remove it to charge the iPad in the dock. If you have a skin cover on your iPhone4 it simply will not seat on the connector and hence will not charge. There is no way around these issues.

    To their great credit, returning the dock to Apple is straight forward. And they even pay for the shipping and credit you for the original shipping costs.

    I wish

    • Written by from Belleville

    that the space to set the iPad into was just a little wider. I have a thin protective back cover on my iPad which keeps it from fitting in the doc. The cover is a bit of a pain to take off and on. If you plan to use a cover that you don't want to remove, you may want to skip the dock.

    Not worth it

    • Written by from Forest Grove

    First, only item in the box is the dock, nothing else is included. $29.00 is a lot of money for what is essentially a big, white plastic connector.
    Second, the dock does not accommodate the smart cover! Come on Apple, you specifically designed the smart cover for the iPad2 and also this dock is specifically designed for the iPad2 -- why don't they work together? I can't believe that I either have to remove the smart cover or have the smart cover flopped to the side just to dock my iPad2.
    Third, it is not easy to align the iPad2 with the dock’s connector. The iPad2's connector port is on the back. The dock's connector is obscured by the dock's design when trying to dock the iPad2. Good luck trying to determine if you have the two perfectly aligned before pressing down to dock…
