    IMO, it's not. I bought one and returned it. It just felt cheap... and costs about $30 more than it should.

    Alright, that's what I assumed I would hear. Won't waste the money on it!
    Thanks

    There is a white plastic one and the other iPhone colours are metal, and quite heavy.

    I have three - for Apple TV remote, Apple TV gaming controller and iPhone. I also use one with a microphone as it works through the iPhone and iPad cases. They also have 3.5mm audio out and I think they are worth it.

    I have a clock app (Red Clock) that I run as a night stand clock - been doing so for several years now. I use a Spigen Slim Armor case with the kickstand, and don't even mess with the iPhone docks.

    That's definitely one of the great things about it - stands up, doesn't take up much space, and preserves your Lightning cable.

    I would also sleep easier knowing I am not using some third-party product and risking burning down the house just to save a bit of cash because they cut corners which you can tell from the look and feel but you can't tell in regard to the internals.

    I have one. Not great but saves the cable which is what I really wanted. I have to fiddle a lot to get the phone seated because I don't take the case off
