Nice 'little' case which fits quite snuggly

5.0 out of 5 stars Good useful product for the correct kit, 7 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading some of the reviews I was wondering about the differing ratings.
All I can say is that after reading all the bad reviews I was a little concerned about this product but after reading the instructions and a little logical thinking quickly resulted with a stable tight fitting platform which will charge both my IPhone 6 plus and my IPod Touch 5, both with them wearing a Griffin Survivor case (which are bulky).
Ok it won't accept third party charging leads but that's of little consequence.
Yes I would recommend this for any one using an Apple product, using this type of lead.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good quality product let down by a poor supplier., 26 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst I can't fault the dock unfortunately I can't say the same about the supplier.
The unit appears to be second user as all the 'extra' inserts are missing and the supplier is very reticent to actually do anything about it, other than me returning the unit (price for sending back 1Kg via royal mail on a £20 product, is it practical?).

As for the unit, it more than meets expectation and meets the ambience which appears to be created by all Apple products. The unit is, as mentioned above, about 1Kg so is very stable and doesn't slip all over the desk, unlike any device just connected via a USB lead.

Fortunately I've got a 32pin extension lead so I don't run the risk of damaging the 32 pin plug. Ok it doesn't look as neat as it could but it serves the purpose.

Yes I could recommend this unit (either 32 pin or lightening connector) to friends but I'm afraid I can't say the same for the supplier.

4.0 out of 5 stars They work but it my be cheaper to fully check what already have., 8 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these as my original charging leads were apparently going faulty.
When I received them they were 'professionally', individually packaged and looked the part.
Which brings it down to do they work?
Well, I had the same 'problems' I had with my originals which led to finding a solution, which could save some other users some money......
And that is that the leads appear to have sticky/slightly mis aligned pins and after placing your FitBit into the charging leaden just gently push it into the pins a couple of times and it should start charging (well mine always do).
I now have an embarrassment of charging leads now but at least I know that they all work and that they will probably outlast my FitBit or at least until I upgrade my device (lusting after an Apple watch, which do look nice)

knocked a star off because of the design flaw inherent with these chargers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be better.., 8 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks the part and does what it states on the box, my one niggle is that if I plug my IPad into one of the data ports I immediately get a message on my IPad that it cannot be charged from that port. Easily remedied (if I want to only charge it) by moving it to one of the charging sockets) not so easy if I want to both charge and pass data, so it is not as 'invisible' as one would hope.

Possibly something to look at on the next version

Difficult on how to say this but these work, the previously purchased memory (from another manufacturer) didn't.

I know I'll stick with Crucial from now one.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works, no problems, 28 Jun. 2014
Well at least it gives the people who are tending to wander into our back garden a scare (and a soaking). It's their fault anyway as the contract was supposed to have been finally signed off in April.

No leaks, plenty of pressure, nice wide spread. Don't know about the cats yet as it's only been a month but it certainly does what they advertise. The leaks which are mentioned in a few feedbacks could very well be down to how the unit is put together as it is home construction, I was extremely surprised as to how small the box was, but after visually inspection to ensure the washer were where they should be and only tightening up each connection hand tight (you can over tighten which could cause problems) and the only problem was where to put the unit to get the maximum coverage of my garden
