We have a third gen iPad and an iPhone 5, both in Otterbox Defender cases (we have kids). My wife would prefer to replace the nest of charging cables on her nightstand with a charging station that will charge both the iPad and iPhone. Her criteria are:
- Clock display
- Be able to accommodate the devices in their Otterbox cases
We're not looking for audiophile quality out of the stereo; the ability to play music off the device would be nice.
I've been looking at an iHome stations (e.g., Amazon.com: iHome Dual Charging Stereo FM Clock Radio with USB Charge for iPod/iPhone/iPad: MP3 Players & Accessories
), but I'm not sure the iPad would fit on top in its case. Does anyone know if it will? If it doesn't, will purchasing a dock extender (Amazon.com: Cosmos Black , White Dock Extender 30-Pin Converter for iPhone 4 4S, iPod ,iPad 2 3(The new iPad) , Free Cosmos Cable Tie: Cell Phones & Accessories
Or are there are other stations that meet our criteria better?
Thanks for the help!
