The SouthMaker Sync Dock Station for Apple iPhone is an inexpensive charge and sync solution for Apple iPhone 5 and 6 series smartphones. The design not only accommodates larger iPhone models like my 6 Plus, but also iPhones with cases, which for me is a bulkier Rokform.
In the package, you’ll just find the charger itself with hardwired USB cable. It’s four foot long (about 1.22 meters), which should be plenty for most situations. As you can see in the photos, the painted aluminum finish (silver) looks good, and nicely complements my desktop.
From syncing to charging, all of my testing went smoothly. The one negative I’ll note is that the rubberized bottom does not reach the desk surface, so the cradle does slide around when it’s clearly designed not to (it’s also a bit on the light side). However, if you’re looking for a spare desktop charger or two that keeps your iPhone in a portrait orientation, SouthMaker’s offering is still a nice option.
Thanks to AmazingWorks for the discounted review unit.
