I was so about to get this this morning at the Apple Store. Then I realized that I use a case on both my iPad and iP4. Not worth the hassle to remove the case every time I wanna charge my stuff.

Very tempting but I'll pass.

I wish these cool stand manufacturers would permit adjustable brackets to fit varying thicknesses. As it is now, I have a minor Dock cable nest next to my bed and in my office.

It's something I might consider.

I'm more than likely getting the new Touch when it's released so one of these dual chargers would be ideal.

But as everyone pointed out, if you have a case on your iPad and even your iPhone or touch, it may not fit correctly if at all. Too bad the site doesn't have any more info on this.

It got one the other day from Fry's Electronics. I like it but, yeah it leaves no room if you use any kind of case for the iPad. I've tried the Apple iPad Case, a Belkin Grip Vue and a generic silicone one from ebay and none of them will allow the iPad to fit in the charger when on.

My iPhone 4 works fine with the Speck HD case and the generic cases I have.

So it is probably going back since the hassle of having to take off the case is equal to hassle of plugging in loose cables, but it saves $60 to just use the cables.

just an update as ilounge did a pretty nice review for the Incharge Duo as well as iHome's iB969 dual charging option.

XtremeMac (http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/reviews/entry/xtrememac-incharge-duo-for-ipad/)

iHome iB969 (http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/reviews/entry/ihome-ib969-charging-station-for-ipod-iphone-ipad/)

Both links review both charging stations at the same time, however, there are only pictures for the respective named charger in specified link.

You may want to check out the iB969. Personally, it seems to offer more charging options as well as the ability to charge your iPad in its case. It's also able to sync all your iWhatevers as well.
