Charge and sync your iPhone 5 or iPod Touch (5th generation) with the compact and stylish Belkin Charge + Sync Dock. Featuring a cable channel for the Lightning connector cable, the dock provides a fast and easy way to charge without having to pause your music or video. If you want to listen to music while your iPhone is docked, connect your headphones to the audio port on the back, or connect to your stereo system with an AUX cable (AUX cable not included). The Audio jack folds down back into the base if you just want to charge and sync.

NOTE: The Belkin Charge + Sync Dock with Audio Port does not come with a Lightning cable. It has been designed to use the cable that comes with the iPhone 5 or iPod Touch (5th generation).
Belkin developed the Charge + Sync Dock for people who use their Apple-supplied Lightning cable in multiple locations. The dock is intentionally designed for easy cable removal, so you can use it in other places like your Mac or in your car. For this reason, your Lightning to USB cable may come loose when you remove your iPhone. Docking your iPhone with the AUX jack in the upright position will help increase stability.
How to Dock Your iPhone 5 or iPod Touch (5th Generation)
To use the Belkin Charge + Sync Dock, first remove the magnetically attached base from the dock. Then, take the Lightning cable that came with your iPhone 5 or iPod Touch (5th generation) and feed it through the cable channel. Replace the magnetically attached base and you are ready to dock.
Listen While Charging Using Headphones or Speakers
The Charge + Sync Dock makes it easy to enjoy music or movies while charging your device. Simply dock your device with the AUX jack in the upright position and plug your headphones into the audio port on the back of the dock or connect to your stereo system with an AUX cable (AUX cable not included). You can also listen using your device's speakers by folding down the AUX jack.
Also, because the dock is compatible** with most iPhone 5 and iPod Touch (5th generation) cases, you don't have to remove your case before charging.
Works with Lightning Connector
The dock uses your existing Lightning connector by Apple, so you can charge and sync your iPhone 5 or iPod Touch (5th generation) with ease.
The dock's removable magnetic base contains a cable channel that holds your connector securely in place for easy cable management.
The Belkin Charge + Sync Dock is compatible with iPhone 5 and iPod Touch (5th generation) and the cable that comes with these devices. It is not for use with Belkin Lightning cables.
