All types of iPhone docks are available out there in the market. They range in all price tags as well as sizes. Some of the problems that the users have found out are that, even though not all of them are cheap, they come in plastic finish. This can some time cause damages to the device. One other problem is that they can be a bit tight. The user may need to pull with both the hands to free the device from the dock.
Hopkins has introduced a new dock termed as the Elevation dock. The built and quality of the device substantiates that claim. The whole dock is made from solid aluminium that is precision machined. They come in a large variety of finish.
Features of Hopkins Elevation dock:
Line output (in Elevation dock+)
USB wall adapter (in Elevation dock+)
Hopkins has introduced a new dock termed as the Elevation dock. According to the manufacturer, Casey Hopkins, this is the best dock for iPhone. The built and quality of the device substantiates that claim. The whole dock is made from solid aluminium that is precision machined. They come in a large variety of finish.
The connector that plugs in to the iPhone is of low friction type. That is there won’t be much resistance while you plug in or pull out the iPhone. Because of the hefty base that packs in just the needed weight stays stable while docking and undocking. This lets you place and take the iPhone in the dock with just one hand. While other docks stay attached to the iPhone if you try to pick it up with one hand and this can cause wear and tear in the phones 30 –pin dock connector. Most of the iPhone cases would fit into it, but bigger cases like the water proofs wont.
If you want some added features go for the Elevation dock +. This dock has added components like a line out as well as a USB wall adapter. The overall design and finish are same in both the devices. The presence of line output lets you leave a pair of speakers connected to the dock at all times for your ease of use. The dock also bypasses the iPhone's pre amplifier circuit and this can produce superior sound quality provided you use a good quality speaker system. It comes in a very attractive Matte colour finish too.
Elevation dock from Hopkins has a price tag of around Rs.5,000/- in India. Till now a lot of orders have been received for the dock and that shows its popularity.
