This charging dock for iPad 2 also syncs up with the tablet. Very similar to original dock design by Apple. It functions the same way. You get a stand for your tablet to watch movies or type on the virtual keyboard easily. While doing this, iPad2 is charged. There is a safe charging integrated circuit to protect against overcharging. It weighs about 100 grams. So, be careful when your iPad sits on it.
There is 3.5 mm line out for audio listening.
So, why do you think that the price is such low if it basically does the same thing. Well! It has no Apple brand on it and you can not know what will happen after let’s say 6 months of usage. Such cheap accessories are always open to malfunctioning. But, anyway you are paying only a few bucks and you will not be so sorry if it happens.
So, you are welcome to buy this on MiniInTheBox.com alongwith some other accessories.
