I have a handful of docks that I’ve stowed away in a drawer because I no longer own the iOS devices I bought them for; they were all bought for specific iOS devices, and they’re not compatible with my latest ones.
With the iDockAll, that’s not an issue, because it’s designed to fit any iOS device you own — including your iPhone, your iPad, and your iPod touch. It looks darn good, too, and it doesn’t prevent your iOS device from being used while it’s charging.
When you buy the iDockAll, the biggest decision you must make is whether you want the Lightning version or the traditional 30-pin version. You don’t need to decide whether you want one for an iPhone 4S, an iPhone 5, an iPad, or an iPad mini — because as long as all your iOS devices have the same charging port, the iDockAll is compatible with them.
That means it’s also “future proof.” So when you upgrade your iPhone or your iPad later this year, it’ll still work just as good.
The iDockAll has another awesome feature. Rather than having a charging port built into the dock itself, you simply slip in the USB cable you got with your iOS device, or a third-party one. That means that when you want to use your device, you don’t have to pull it off the charger — you simply slip the cable out of the dock at the same time.
The iDockAll is designed to look as good as the iOS devices it holds. It comes in black or grey, and it has a sandblasted finish as your MacBook, so it’ll look right at home on your desk alongside your Mac. There are two different models — the standard iDockAll, and the iDockAll+ which has an added support for iPads. Both models are available in Lightning or 30-pin versions.
Like all Kickstarter projects, the iDockAll needs you support to enter production. You can pledge as little as $5 to support the project, while a $39 pledge will secure you an iDockAll as soon as they begin shipping at the “Early Bird Special” price.
Once those are all gone, you’ll need to pay $49 to bag one, while the iDockAll+ is $65.
