The best iPhone 6s charging docks

By , Nov 26, 2015

We’ve been working hard all year to track down popular and usefull accessories for your iPhone 6s (we started on the iPhone 6). The reason we provide these spotlight posts is to give you a better breadth of knowledge of the types of accessories that are out there for you to choose from.

Today, we’ve got an accessory roundup of what we think are some of the best charging docks for your iPhone 6s from the products we’ve spotlighted over the past year. If you don’t see your charging dock of choice on our list, please feel free to let us know in the comments.

HiRise Deluxe

HiRise Deluxe

Twelve South is one of our favorite accessory makers around here. The company’s HiRise charging dock appeals to our minimalist aesthetic. The Deluxe model is specially designed for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus model, as well as the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. It has a machined dial and adjustable clip at the charging port so you can charge your device with or without a case. It comes with a removable Lightning cable (and microUSB cable) that is nicely hidden inside the stand. It is available in silver, black or gold for $60 on Amazon.

Mophie Lightning Desktop Dock

Mophie makes a stand that is universally compatible with all Lightning port iPhones up to the iPhone 6s thanks to its wide docking rest. It has a heavyweight bottom, but a very small footprint. The connector is on a pivot to allow for a range of cases. The cord is only 3.5 feet long, so keep that in mind when deciding what to buy. It is available on Amazon for $80.

SyncStand

Sinjimoru-SyncStand-for-iPhone-6-

Sinjimoru makes a unique and minimalist looking stand for the iPhone 6s that has a circular theme. It features a removable adapter so you can use it with a different charging cable for a variety of smartphones. It is sturdy enough to hold an iPad mini in place while charging and is specially designed to allow you to rest your handset in landscape mode, although you can’t charge it in that position. It comes in black or silver and is available on Amazon for $20.

RND Power Solutions

Some people use a thick case to protect their iPhone 6s. I can’t judge. I understand the desire to keep your smartphone from breaking. However, thick cases oftentimes make it difficult to use with accessories like a charging dock. This dock was specially designed to fit most thick cases, so you don’t have to remove your iPhone to charge it. The dock’s Lightning pin extends outward by 22mm, so if you have a case with a slim port, this may not fit. Keep that in mind when shopping around. It comes in black, white, pink, and purple and is compatible with all Lightning connected handsets, including the iPhone 6s Plus. It is available on Amazon for $30.

Belkin Charge and Sync

Belkin-Lightning-Charger-iPhone-6

Belkin is a trusted name for iOS accessories and its minimalist charging dock is part of the group. It is ultra slim, with a footprint the size of a credit card, with a specially weighted base to keep your device from falling over. It fits with any handset with a Lightning port, including the iPhone 6s Plus, but has a very specific connector. So, it won’t fit with a lot of cases. Check the specs before buying. It comes in silver, black with blue, pink, green purple, and red with white for $20 on Amazon.

DuoStand

Orzly-DuoStand-1024x1024

The DuoStand by Orzly is the only one on our list with Apple Watch compatibility. Personally, I’ve still not seen the perfect Apple Watch stand, but this one is a nice compromise. It is made from aluminum and has a special arm on the backside that fits the Apple Watch charging cable perfectly. There is also a hole at the base of the stand, so you can display your iPhone with the charging cable hidden out of sight. It comes in black, silver, gold, and rose gold and is available on Amazon for between $13 and $20, depending on your color preferences.

    Nothing on the official dock? I love it.

      i made the mistake of buying one and returned it the next day. What a piece of garbage.

      • Really? That’s the only one that has ever interested me, as it looks great with the matching colored iPhone, but I’ll pass if it is garbage.

      • Brandon

        it looks nice but its very wobbly on the stand itself, its a bit irritating to put the iphone on because its just the lightning connector sticking out. Also, its so light that you need 2 hands to take it off just makes it useless to me.

  • The Fluffy Alpaca

    Very nice post. I only missed the dual dock from Belkin, but otherwise it’s a great list!

    Belkin charge and sync is the best, i have been using them since iPhone 5, now on iPhone 6 and they still work awesome and fitting issues because of a bigger iPhone not a problem at all you can even put in an iPad mini and it still stands. I use the iPad charge and sync with my iPhone 6s+ and its the perfect size and it looks awesome. I highly recommend these docks check them out and you wont be disappointed.
