Twelve South today unveiled a new adjustable pedestal stand designed to work with both Apple’s iPhone 5 and the iPad mini. Made from brushed metal to match other Apple/Mac accessories, the HiRise is designed to work with a Lightning cable and nearly any iPhone or iPad mini case.

hirise

Place HiRise in your workspace to charge while your hands are free during calls and FaceTime chats.

Unlike most other docks, HiRise doesn’t block your speakers, mic or headphone ports. This vertical pedestal is small and beautiful enough to use anywhere in your home or office. It’s the ultimate perch for keeping your iPhone 5 or iPad mini fully charged and ready to go.

According to Twelve South, the stand works with a wide variety of popular cases, from Otterbox to Speck to the company’s own BookBook. The rear support on the HiRise can slide back and forth and multiple height clips for the Lightning cable allow it to accommodate the majority of cases. With standard docks and stands, device cases often have to be removed.

The HiRise stand can be purchased from the Twelve South website for $34.99.

Would you make one of these for $20? If so, I may have a job for you. ...because if I went downstairs to our machine shop and told them to make me 1000 of these, they'd cost over $100 a piece just to produce, and that's before marketing & advertising costs.

If $35 is exorbitant, but $20 is acceptable, you're arguing over $15. You blow more than that rounding off lunch tips in a week. Suck it up.

...If they set msrp at $20 you'd just complain it should have been $10. But it's understandable. To people who don't value craftsmanship & manufacturing, and have been told for a couple generations that such work is beneath them, nothing is worth anything, and few have any idea what it actually takes to build a product and bring it to market anymore. Everything should just be free.

Too right. The current examples in China make it a no-brainer now.

screw that. I got a better solution.
I guess I'm the kind of person that would prefer buying something that costs me $35, looks nice and will last ages: vs buying something that will cost me $5 and either last a month, or burn my house down, and it looks dreadful.

35 for the stand + 19 for another cable because your not going to want to disassemble it everytime you need to go somewhere = 55 plus tax.

screw that. I got a better solution.

I guess I'm in that part of my life where $35 doesn't really hurt my bank account.

I love Twelve South stuff. :p Their gear looks like it's designed by Apple themselves, unlike most other stuff on the Apple peripheral market.
