Docking iPhone With Case - Universal Dock Recommendations?

I'm looking to dock my first-gen iPhone with its case on ... so instead of purchasing a slimmer case (ie. skin), I figure I'm better off getting a universal dock (my current iPhone/case combo will not fit the first-gen dock) as I'd rather not bother constantly taking off the bottom part of the case.

So are there any good and inexpensive universal docks available? Do they charge and sync - or only charge? I'm mainly interested in charging since this dock will be located at work.

Thanks for your help!

I would go for the proper apple universal dock, it comes with a range of inserts and a remote control...charges, syncs and plays music via the line out, well worth the 20 or so it costs online.

Just ordered a Universal Dock since my Capsule Rebel case came with a Universal Dock adapter so it should fit nicely while in its case.

How is the Universal Dock working out for you? I have the Capsule Rebel case as well, and I'm on the fence about getting that one or the Griffin Simplifi.

My only concern is charging with the case on can hold in heat and mess with your battery life...

Dock works exceptionally well with the iPhone in its Neo or Rebel case. Charging & syncing works well, so does communication with the remote. My iPhone is definitely not getting hot when charging so no issues there either.
