The iDockAll can hold and charge any iOS device, even with the case on

Folks in the market for a new dock for their collection of iOS devices may want to check out the new iDockAll from Wiplabs. The accessory can charge either your 30-pin or Lightning device, or both, depending on which model you get—it even works with cases.

And not only is it universal, but it looks great and is extremely functional. Made out of a single block of solid aluminum, the iDockAll would fit right in on a desk with other Apple hardware, and its unique design allows you to keep using your device as it charges…

As you can probably tell from the photos, there’s not much to the thing. It’s essentially a paperweight (it weighs 8.4 ounces)—albeit a gorgeously designed one—with rubber feet and a hole cut in the middle so you can feed your USB cable through for charging.

The real trick here is that the dock comes in a variety of flavors. There’s the iDockAll+, which works with all iOS devices, regardless of connector. And then there’s the iDockAll and the iDockAll Lightning, which work with 30-pin and Lightning devices respectively.

Wiplabs says that it’s 100% ready to start production, it just needs a little cash to front the manufacturer. So it’s taken to Kickstarter to try and raise the money. And with 18 days to go, it’s already surpassed its goal of $9,999 by a few grand, meaning it’ll get funded.

If you’re interested, a pledge of $39 or more will get you on the pre-order list. All versions of the iDockAll come in either Aluminium Grey Anodized, or Matte Black Anodized, and the developers believe that they’ll be ready to start shipping them sometime in October.

Admittedly, there’s nothing groundbreaking here. But the iDockAll looks like a solid option for anyone considering getting a dock, and I really like its curved case design. I’m not sure I’ll go in as a backer, but I’m definitely looking forward to this thing launching this fall.

    Does it come with the actually charger? Seems a bit expensive for a hunk of metal.

      Most docks are expensive, granted this doesn’t have as much functionality as other docks i believe because it can charge all idevices it’s worth it you plan on charging all your devices

    • mkOS

      I like the idea, but it’s way too expensive!

    • Abdullah Adhami

    I’m looking forward to Dock+. I’m not sure how much it will be, but I think it’s more attractive looking.

    Doesn’t give it any back support whatsoever meaning you could damage your iDevice’s internal charging/syncing port. It also leaves the cable in there, which is quite annoying, they could of easily wrapped it around something so it doesn’t stay connected.

    I wonder how much they paid iDB for this article.

    The next iPhone is almost here… forget it.

  • Alpay Barz Ozalper

    they cancelled the project why ?

  • BoardDWorld

    It’s a stand, not a dock. The price is insane and the first 2 $39 options are just rude for all the people who ignorantly ruin the cords. One option should have been offered.

  • Franck Kamayou

    We already know how fragile the iPhone cables are… looks like it will do nothing but damage the cables at their base…
