The search for the perfect way to charge and view your phone simultaneously has ended. ElevationLab has what you want. The Elevation Dock 5 is a simply designed steel-and-silicone dock. It works with Apple’s lightning cable to charge and hold upright any iPhone (5 or later) and most iPads. A steel adjuster knob in the back gets your phone to the right angle for viewing. There’s a microsuction bottom that holds fast to any smooth surface so you can pick up and dock your phone one handed.
True, there are wireless chargers that do the job of holding your phone at the right angle while charging, but most of those are for the brand new Magsafe-enabled models. Also, even the fastest wireless charging is slower than wired. The only problem with the Dock 5 is you’ll probably want to get two. One for the desk and one for your bedside table.
