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.
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.

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