ElevationLab Debuts 'Elevation Dock 3' With Integrated Cable, iPhone 6 Plus Support

by

ElevationLab today announced the launch of an updated version of its popular Elevation Dock for the iPhone, adding new features like a wider design to accommodate the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, new lateral supports for improved stability, and a built-in Apple-certified Lightning connector.

The Elevation Dock originated on Kickstarter in 2012, and quickly became a popular choice for iPhone owners. The company released an Elevation Dock 2 able to support the iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, and 6, but the Elevation Dock 3 is the first dock that works with Apple's bigger iPhone 6 Plus and iPhones with thick cases. It's also the first Elevation Dock that does not require the buyer to supply a Lightning cable.


Along with above-mentioned feature additions, the Elevation Dock 3 is also available in new finishes, adding Bright Polished Red and Cerulean Blue to the existing silver and black aluminum finishes.

Elevation Dock 3 can be purchased from the ElevationLab website for $89 to $99, depending on finish. Orders will ship out immediately.

The part of the video that shows this dock in comparison to Apple's dock made me laugh out loud. Just goes to show how shoddy that new Lightning dock Apple's peddling is.

Looks great, but the video made me laugh. At 37 seconds in when the guy gently pokes the iPhone in the Elevation dock and then practically stabs the iPhone in the Apple dock, followed by shaking the phone off of the Apple dock reminded me why I enjoy product videos so much. :D

If they made one out of wood (preferably - or plastic), I'd buy it.

There's a good reason why all Apple iPhone docks to date have been made from plastic and not metal. :)

There are several metal iPhone docks that work just fine. You just need a bit of padding where the phone rests against it, assuming you're not using a case.

Work just fine = user dependent.

You're assuming that, 100% of the time (including when not wearing glasses, drunk, tired - or, as is usually the case, all three), I can successfully manoeuvre the iPhone to the lightning connector - in close proximity to the metal body of the dock - without accidentally knocking (or bashing or slamming) the iPhone into the metal part. Experience tells me different.

This is an assumption that Apple has never chosen to make - not even with the very latest iPhone dock, which was evidently many months in the making.

The same issue applies to Apple Watch stands. I simply cannot fathom why so many Apple Watch stands have been made from aluminium. They are just very bad accidents that are waiting to happen.

I have the watch, the phone, and the pad. I am still looking for the perfect solution to charge all three. No one has yet to create a dock for the watch and phone that uses only one cable (i am giving up on a dock for all three).

This product looks great, but they are selling something for the watch seperately. If they did something that was integrated I would be all over it. I have seen a couple of docks on amazon that will do both, but not sturdy and still require separate cables.

Nothing against this product as it looks fantastic (even if a bit expensive), but I will continue to wait until I find the right solution for me.
