    Default Charging Dock for iPhone 5

    Can anyone recommend a charging dock/stand that is case friendly? I have a case-mate barely there on my iphone 5.

    Thanks.

    That's going to be a tough one. Most companies don't make docks for cases. I've always wanted one for my iPhone with my Otterbox defender and I've never found one.

    If anyone knows of any docks that work with either of our cases, please let us know.

    Elevation dock. It's a little pricey but its my favorite dock and its case friendly.

    Thanks for the input. Its a beautiful dock and a great suggestion. It's an awesome dock, but the problem is the Otterbox, still. This product requires me to cut up my Otterbox to make it work. I have yet to find one that doesn't require that. Maybe someone will do it. Maybe even Otterbox themselves could venture that way.

    Default Charging Dock

    Made my own out of Lego. I have a vertical charging dock, a horizontal viewing dock and a stylus holder.

    I will get pictures tomorrow. It is sitting on my desk at work.

    This sounds like an awesome idea. I've got a box full of Legos that would be perfect. Can't wait to see your photos.

    I'm not going to lie, having been at the LegoLand store in Atlanta last week, if i saw an iPhone 5 dock there, i probably would have bought it! Nice job!

    The base concept came from here then I expanded and modified to make it more functional.

    bamf- UNREAL dock!

    to the OP, try ebay. They're fairly cheap and from my experience, usually a little bit loose. But if it doesn't work and least you're only out 10 bucks

    I use this with my 4S:

    Amazon.com: Belkin F8Z795tt Portable Video Stand for iPhone 4 / 4S: MP3 Players & Accessories

    Because the charging piece is basically by itself it fits in most cases. If you grab a 30-pin adapter it should work with no real issue.

    By far my favorite accessory. I bought one for work and one for home. I'm gonna warn u when u are installing the lightning cord with the adaptor piece u will have to bend the lighting cable a lot and think you are going to break it but you won't.
