Logitech on Tuesday announced their new Logi BASE Charging Stand with Smart Connector for the iPad Pro. The new stand, which works with both the 12.9-inch and 9.7-inch iPad Pro, charges the device in landscape mode via the Smart Connector, while you use it.
The Logi BASE is the first device to charge your iPad Pro through the Smart Connector, and charging has never been friendlier. Magnets in the charging cradle guide your iPad Pro into place to align with the Smart Connector, with no need to search for a charging port; just drop your iPad Pro in and go.
While charging the iPad Pro, it also does duty as a stand for the device, allowing it to still be used while charging. Since the Logi BASE charges the iPad Pro via its Smart Connector, this doesn’t allow using any Smart Connector keyboards while the stand is being used, but it does free up the Lightning port on the Pro, allowing it to be used to charge compatible accessories, such as the Apple Pencil.
