Bluelounge MiniDock for iPhone 5

looking to cut the clutter in your gadget-laden life? well, you can start by getting rid of your iPhone 5 charging/syncing cable with this nifty little accessory called MiniDock for iPhone 5. if the ‘MiniDock’ sounds a somewhat familiar to you, you’d be right: it was introduced a couple of years ago for the iPhone 4 and now, it is being redesigned for the iPhone 5. the concept remains the same: it is designed to work with your Apple USB power adapters, allowing you to charge your iPhone directly from the wall outlet. and that’s all to it. simple and functional, just like the iDevices you own. just think of it as an ultra portable iPhone dock that lets you charge anywhere where there’s wall outlet. and since it is a dock, it props up the phone and off the ground, you can therefore easily steal a glance at the charging status and also not accidentally kick your device which will inadvertently happen if its on the floor. available for the US, UK and EU, the Bluelounge MiniDock for iPhone 5 can be yours for $39.95 each.
