Accessory maker Moxiware today announced an interesting charging dock for the $99 Apple Pencil that keeps your stylus in an upright position while it’s docked and charging. This should be good news for critics who ridicule Apple’s way of charging the Apple Pencil through the iPad Pro’s Lightning port.
The accessory is provided in anodized aluminum or hard wood, each in a cone or cylinder-shaped variant, and is available for pre-order beginning today for $30.
Charge your Apple Pencil in upright position
With its simple yet elegant design, this handy dock makes it easy to charge and store your Apple Pencil. It’s also very portable and matches up nicely with Moxiware’s existing collection of iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch docks.
Keep in mind that the dock doesn’t come with an included Lightning cable so you’ll have to buy your own and route it through the base of the dock. That it looks like a traditional pen stand is a huge bonus, I guess.
The Moxiware Apple Pencil Charging Dock is available in anodized aluminum or hard wood, each in cone or cylinder-shaped variant. The cone editions have Lightning port for charging while the cylinder ones come with an added Pencil holder.
The accessory can be pre-ordered from the Moxiware website for $30 a pop, plus an additional $6.95 for shipping worldwide. First shipments are scheduled to arrive in December 2015.
