    Default Charger docking station that will work with a case left on ???

    Why is it so hard to find a charging docking station or charging stand that will work with an iPhone 5 without having to remove the case ???

    Are the makers of docking stations really ALL that stupid ???

    Yes I have found some on eBay and Amazon that work with the case on but they are usually very expensive and since I need about 4 docking charging stations that could get really expensive.

    Most people have cases on their phones while most companies make docking stations that won't fit with a case on,,,, wow,,, that just makes no sense.

    eBay and Amazon have thousands of docks to pick from and almost none of them are usable unless you remove your case,,, I can't tell ya all how many docks I have ordered only to have to get out my collection of files and grind out the dock to make it fit with a case on.

    Does anyone know of some affordable docking stations for iphone 5 that will work with out having to remove the case ???

    Thanks in advance and sorry for the rant.

    I've moved this to the Accessories forum for more exposure.

    ​The ones that take cases into account are simply more expensive. It's easier and cheaper to build a one size fits all dock. But cases come in all shapes, sizes, so while a dock may fit one case, it may not fit all.

    Belkin makes a nice charging dock that works with a case on.
