This IPEGA PG-IP115 Docking station is one of the best devices if you have either a Samsung or Apple smart devices because this multi-functional docking station supports both these manufacturer smartphones and also tablets but can also charge other Android phones that use that micro USB connector.
This stylish device is made from plastic but it still weighs only 2 pounds (900 grams) so it is not that light and won’t feel cheap or poorly built. The dimensions of this multifunctional iPad, iPhone and Android device dock are 14.5 inches by 1.5 inches by 6.5 inches (37 cm x 4 cm x 16.5 cm) so it is fairly small but big enough to fit your iPad horizontally or vertically!
Basically this is the only model that I have seen that can accommodate both lighting connector and also 30 pin Apple connector as well as micro USB connection so basically this is a general purpose device that is designed to work with almost any smartphone and tablet. Because of this amazing feature you can buy this dock for a variety of reasons and also use your MP4 and MP3 players because apart from those connections there are also a 3.5 mm audio jack! How this all can be fitted in a device as small as this one you ask? The key is that those ports can be exchanged and you can take for example the lighting connector out and replace it with USB connector. And if you think these statistics are impressive you should also know that you can dock two devices at once and switch from one to another in music playback!
And Yes this docking station has also built in speakers that will amplify your devices sound so that you will be able to watch movies listen to music or just set up a loud alarm clock! The sound quality is OK knowing that this device weighs only 2 pounds but it is definitely louder than any built in speaker on any smart device.
This docking station also has 4 buttons for music volume regulation, audio device switching and general audio button for turning it on or off so you won’t need to fiddle with your touch screen to do these operations!
In the package you get an USB cable, the device itself, 5 different port plug-ins , charger cable , two holders , English and Chinese manual and also a 3.5 mm audio jack for external music playback . You will also need this audio cable if you are not using Apple or Samsung products as other manufacturer’s devices may not play music through their connection port and you will need to plug audio cable in them. And if you set your iPad horizontally you will also need to plug in that audio cable as the device is designed to work only with that port when charging horizontally plugged iPad.
The overall look and feel is quite nice about this dock and you get a black and metallic coloring that makes this device stylish but allows it to not stand out amongst other electronic on your desk. I also like the positioning that this device gives to your smart phones or tablets as they are in an ergonomic viewing angle and you can watch videos and do other stuff while charging them at the same time.
