Apple Watch has yet to make an appearance at Apple Stores but Apple Watch accessories are making the best use of the launch of the debutante wearable. NuDock Power Station Lamp for Apple Watch and iPhone is the latest entrant in this segment. A beautifully designed station made of solid anodized aluminum body and housed in polycarbonate body, it uses rubber coat for a soft touch. The NuDock docking station also features a LED lamp, which can be controlled by touch. The LED also features 1 hour sleep mode.
- While giving a solid base to your device and wearable, the dock offers three charging port for iPhone, Apple Watch and any other device, such as Amazon Kindle and Apple iPad.
- It is adjustable and to charge your devices, you don’t have to remove the cover.
- To recharge Apple Watch, you need to insert the charger in the secure port.
- The audio jack, microphone and speaker remain unobstructed and if you want to play music and do video calls, you can do it straight from NuDock. The sound isn’t muffled or distorted.
- NuDock is easy to install. The rubber base is non-stick yet keeps it firmly in place. The base is secured with a washable EVA microscopic suction pad.
- The NuDock doesn’t interfere with the décor of your home. Its integrated cable management system keeps the cable hidden and the décor, neat.
- Apple MFI Lightening Cable and charging dock plus portable battery dubbed as NuKi is integrated as a backup battery solution when you need to charge the device on-the-go. To charge phone without doc, you need to disconnect NuKi. NuKi charges passively within the Power Station Lamp while the priority remains to charge the devices first as soon as you plug in the USB.
- You can click pictures with a single click, without the requirement of an iOS app.
- NuDock is compatible with Otterbox Defender Case, official Apple cases and Mophie Juice Pack iPhone battery cases. Though, it only supports the official Apple charging cable and lightening cable that is included in the box.
- NuDock is compatible with iPad Mini, Apple Watch, iPhone 5, iPhone 5S and iPod Touch, 5th Generation, besides the latest flagship model, Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus. The devices which work with Apple Lightening Cable can be charged with NuDock.
- It comes with 1-year limited warranty.
- NuDock features CSR Bluetooth Smart Chipset that works within 100ft range and LE connectivity to locate keys and iPhone.
