Accessory maker Belkin has today announced its latest accessory for iPad: the Express Dock for iPad.
Belkin claim the Express Dock for iPad is the first dock that can be adjusted so that you can dock your iPad without removing its case.
The Express Dock achieves this by virtue of an adjustable dial integrated into the back of the dock that raises or lowers the Lightning connector so that it will be compatible with a variety of case sizes and styles.
“When it comes to docks, we found that people’s most common complaint when docking their tablet or phone is that they have to take off the case,” said Marco Peters, senior director of product management at Belkin. “Our Express Dock eliminates that problem, making it easier to charge and sync your device in a variety of cases.”
Express Dock is certainly built with the iPad (4th generation) in mind and is fully capable of supporting a 9.7″ iPad but will also be just as useful for charging and syncing your iPad mini, iPhone 5 or iPod touch (5th generation). It will probably work well with the new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c too although Belkin do not themselves state this.
It’s available now through Belkin’s website and retail partners, including Apple and Amazon, and costs $59.99/£44.99.
