Do you have an ultra-protective case on your iPhone 5/5c/5s, and the thickness of the case prevents you from using a Lightning dock product like the new Bose SoundDock Series III without removing the case first? Well, CableJive just may have the solution for you.
CableJive announces the release of dockStubz for Lightning, a new model in the company’s line of dockStubz Case Adapters. Uniquely designed to adapt iPhone 5/5s/5c, or other Apple devices with the new Lightning connection, to new Lightning docking stations or accessories that do not allow a proper connection with the use of a case, cover or bumper. dockStubz for Lightning enables a stable, snug connection and passes all functionality through to the smartphone or tablet, as if it was connected directly to the dock.
Retailing at $18.95 on the CableJive website, the dockStubz for Lightning is a female 8-pin to a male 8-pin adapter and has a two-piece design intended to offer increased flexibility for different types and styles of cases. dockStubz for Lightning offers a long barrel suited to fit inside a more protective case, such as a waterproof case, while holding the phone securely in the dock.
The adapter is also designed with a space for the Lightning charge port ‘door’ to swing open, as seen in LifeProof cases. (My wife Julie is going to be SO excited! – Ed.)
We’re going to try and get out hands on one of these, just to make sure it actually performs as advertised, so keep your eyes open for a full review.
