I love docks for my phone. They keep the device within easy reach, allow you to see the screen, and get it all charged up at the same time. The worst problem with a docking station is that you need two hands to remove it so you don’t end up dropping something on the floor. Recently I had a chance to test out a brand-new dock that’s a bit different. Henge Docks Gravitas dock is ultra heavy weight for single-hand operation, and it can not only hold and charge my iPhone but my iPad too.
One dock for iPhone and iPad – the Gravitas
The Henge Docks Gravitas is about the size of a fist, and it really packs a punch. It weighs 2.5 lbs so it’s not going to tip over of slide off anything. That’s because it’s made of a sturdy zinc alloy that’s is 265% denser than aluminum. That allows it to be very small, but hold a lot of weight, and even use it one-handed.I was skeptical that this would work, but after testing I found it’s quite easy to use one-handed, thanks to its solid weighty base.
The sleek brushed metal finish also makes it chic and minimalist for my home.
Henge Gravitas dock – Grab & Go with one-hand
The Gravitas dock is built for Apple devices only (sorry Android friends!) and can accommodate a variety of iPhone sizes with a set of included liners. For me, I loved the fact I could swap my iPhone 6+ and my iPad (both still in their respective cases) in and out of the device without fuss. This dock is super versatile.
The Gravitas uses a USB port for connecting it to AC power and has an integrated Apple charging cable built right into the dock. There’s also an audio line out if you want to connect your set up to some speakers. Smart!
If you’re an Apple user and need something to display and charge your devices, the Gravitas from Henge Docks is a great pick. Get it here for $69USD/$89CAD.
