iPort today announced new versions of its All-in-One Charge Case and Stand for both the iPad Air and the iPad mini with Retina Display. iPort's Charge Case and Stand is designed to combine a case with both a wireless charger and a stand.

The iPad fits into the case portion of the accessory and attaches magnetically to the stand/charger. When attached to the stand, the iPad can be rotated into three different mounting angles and two different orientations (both portrait and landscape), making it extremely versatile.

The case, which is designed to remain on the iPad at all times, is compatible with Apple's Smart Cover, while the dock, which weighs in at over a pound, includes a power supply for charging whenever the iPad is connected.

iLounge reviewed the company's initial Charge Case and Stand for the original iPad mini and gave it high marks for its unique design and features.

In considering the final value of this system, it's important to look at its constituent pieces. A good dock without any charging hardware or cables sells for around $30, and a case of this sort would go for $35. Adding a 12W charger and a Lightning cable will cost you another $40, assuming you go with Apple products. That brings you over the $100 cost before you even consider iPort's wireless charging. Taking the design of the parts and the total value of the bundle into consideration, it's easy to offer the Charge Case and Stand our high recommendation. iPort got so much right here, and little touches such as the removable Lightning plug pushed the solution over the top from very good to great.


The Charge Case and Stand for the iPad Air and the Retina iPad mini will begin shipping in February and will be priced at $119.95 and $99.95, respectively.

I'm not worried about constantly charging my iPad. the battery lasts 4-5 days and when i need to charge it, it sits on my desk over night. i got a stand for 15 dollars and can use my own charger with that. no need to over complicate things.

I get the price breakdown, but still over $100 is a tough pill to swallow
