    I am curious as to what everyone uses to charge their iPhones. I am getting sick of reaching for the wire off of the ground and plugging it into my iphone and then laying it on my nightstand. I have tried the ugly CableDrop wire holders but they end up getting pulled off and look ugly. I'd like to get a charging dock with some weight to it so I can just lift the phone up and disconnect it with ONE hand ... but I dont want a giant clock radio dock. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    I use an iPad cable/iPhone charging cable and set it on a table next to the bed. I don't have issues with it falling off or being pulled anywhere bec I don't touch it when Im sleeping til the alarm goes off.

    You can look into something like the Powermat charger. I've never used it myself but someone else can chime in if they have.

    I like my giant clock radio since I blast music when I'm bored.

    I have seen the elevation dock... looks intriguing (albeit expensive). I wouldn't mind using a radio clock since they can be used with cases, but my nightstand is small to begin with so it would gobble up all the space. I use a bumper-ish case on my iphone so the charging mat is out of the picture.

    I just use the stand OEM wall adapter and sync cable. I don't need to spend additional money on charging accessories.

    Same here. I use the adapter & cable that came with the device. It charges on the nightstand next to my bed.

    I have an extension cord taped to the back of my night stand and the wall charger plugged into it.

    So far it works great and the cable stays on top of the night stand.

    As for the device, I'm using a Blackberry Storm2 cradle with the contact removed (the connection on the cradle went bad so I just tore out the contact and was using it as a dummy cradle with my Storm)

    So my iPhone is just laying in the landscape position while being charged at night.

    I'm also using the free version of Alarm Clock. So I can dim the screen and having it display as a clock at night.

    Good Luck

    I use the sync cable that came with my iPhone 4 when I charge my phone at night. No issues for me.

    I have a Logitech dock/speaker that has great sound and is portable. It plugs in and charges itself and the iPhone.

    I just use the standard cable and home charger that come with it. I plug that up into the outlet and lay the cable across my night stand. I'm not one who cares about checking the time during the night, so it works fine for me. It'll go off when the alarm is set and then I'll unplug it when I am ready to leave for the day.

    Thanks for the responses. After much research, I may go with the Seidio Desktop Cradle because it can handle cases, has some weight to it, and is relatively cheap (~$28).

    Pretty much just use the adapter & cable that came with the phone most of the time. Sometimes I'll put it on the iHome radio.
