Mophie's Desktop Dock Charges Your iPhone 6 Inside Apple's Own Case

Mophie has introduced a more premium version of its frictionless Juice Pack Dock that is made to work with the iPhone 6, 5s, 5c and iPhone 5. The new Desktop Dock is a svelte and solidly built Lightning dock made out of aluminum that features a built-in pivoting Lightning connector that will let you dock your iPhone with or without a protective case installed on it. Mophie says that while you can use most cases with your iPhone 5s/5c/5 with the Desktop Dock, the iPhone 6 in particular will only be able to be docked naked or when using one of Apple's slim Silicone Case and Leather Case cases only. It's also worth noting that unlike the Juice Pack Dock, the Desktop Dock isn't compatible with Mophie's own battery cases as they don't use Apple's Lightning connector. Mophie has yet to come out with one of its highly anticipated battery cases for the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.

If you do have $80 to spend on the Mophie Desktop Dock, you may want to know that the iPhone 6 Plus isn't supported either. Although it's nowhere near us versatile as the much less expensive HiRise by Twelve South, Mophie's new Desktop Dock is more compact, comes in black and gold aluminum flavors, and features a 42"-long built-in USB charge & sync cable so you don't have to use your own. It's available now.
