Belkin Lightning Charger iPhone 6

Sure, you can plug your iPhone into any old USB adapter and throw it on the table (or couch arm or floor) and it won’t matter what position it is in while charging. But, if you want your iPhone on display while it charges, you’ll want to look into a dock.

Belkin makes a minimalist style charging dock that takes up very little space on your desktop while it provides the juice you need to get your battery to 100 percent.

The dock is super slim. Its base dimensions, including the weighted backside, is only slightly larger than a credit card. It has a Lightning USB four-foot cable so you have a decent amount of length.

It is compact enough to fit into your suitcase or backpack, but sturdy enough to allow you to connect to an iPad mini without falling over. The dock is Apple MFi certified to continue working, even after new updates to iOS in the future.

The Lightning charger connection is specifically designed to help carry the weight of your device while it charges. Therefore, many cases will not fit without modification. Basically, if your speakers and headphone jack are exposed while in your case, you’ll be fine. If not, you may have to remove your iPhone 6 from its case in order to charge it.

The dock is designed to fit any device with a Lightning port, so you can charge your iPhone 5, all the way up to your iPhone 6s Plus.

Belkin’s Charge + Sync dock is available on Amazon for $20. It comes in silver with black, or blue, pink, green, purple, or red with white.

    I had one of these for at least a year. Very good – recommended. Fits any iPhone (currently using iPhone 6 Plus with it) with lightning dock, iPad mini. It will fit a standard size iPad, not sure if it will remain standing though (not tested).
    Good design due to rubberized seat and the lighting dock plug rotates, making it easier to insert and plug your iPhone out.

      How long is the wire that’s in the back of it? I need about 4-5 feet in order to plug it into an outlet near my bed. Or can you use your own lightning cable?

        Cable is only 2 or 3 feet, whatever is “standard” these days. The end is USB, so you can use a USB extension cable…

        Ah, thanks. Not worth it for me then, considering I only plug my phone in while I get ready for my day. Thanks!

    I’ve had one of these since my iPhone 5. 5, 5S and 6 all work well with it.

    Have been using it since day1 of this dock, it is the best dock so far, it will fit most iPhone even with thick cases.

    But I would like to give a try to the Apple dock because I really want the “easy pull” experience like what I had with the 30pins dock, with this Belkin dock, I need to use a finger to push the dock down and pull the phone upward…

    Again, it was $15 awhile ago from amazon, so if we got it with that price I guess we can’t complain about it.

    I also have had this dock since I got my 5s two years ago, and it is fantastic.

      No you don’t! I have four of these, bought (at different times on Amazon for $14-$17) for use first with my 5S and now my 6 Plus and they are great!!! Phone overlaps on each side by a half inch and is VERY secure.
