Yes, it does charge while its in the stand. It has one USB port on the bottom of the base which connects to an outlet, which in essence powers the stand and it's light. Then there is another USB port on the top which connects directly to the iPad itself.Thanks for the suggestion.
This looks very nice.
Does the stand charge the iPad while it is in the stand?
Does the iPad go in and out of the stand easily?
For some reason the link and the company's main site is down right now. I'll try again later. Thanks for the referral. Any other suggestions?
I think Electostand and Airholder are 2 different stands and product.The Electrostand web site is now up.
Both the Electostand and the Airholder look great. Thanks for the awesome suggestions. Any other suggestions? I may purchase one of these this week ......... or maybe both
The only additional item I was looking for is that both of these stands require plugging the iPad into the charger by a cord. I was hoping the iPad would sit in the charger instead of plugging in a cord.
I lean my iPad up against my bed side lamp. Simple, elegant and I don't have to buy anything.I'm looking for a quality, easy to use charging stand for the new iPad. It would be nice if the stand could hold the iPad in both a horizontal and vertical position. Any suggestions?
Your welcome. I'm glad it worked out for you. I agree, I wish it was all metal but for the price I'm not complaining.I received my electrostand last week. I like it. I give it a thumbs up.
The downsides of the stand are:
- It's a mix of metal and plastic but, it's looks really nice.
- The blue light is suppose to go on and off with touching the stand. This function frequently does not work and then suddenly flips through many brightness settings as it finally registers. I've seen the light suddenly come on without anyone near the device. I have another lamp in my house with this same function and the lamp works much better than this product. I think this is cool if it worked right. The blue light is nice.
- I wish the cord than goes from the lamp to the outlet was much longer. The cord that come with the device is at most three feet long. I'll need to purchase a supplemental cord.
- You plug the short cord from the lamp into the ipad to charge it. I wish the charger was fixed into the stand so that you don't need this extra short cord. This way you just place your ipad into the charger when you place it into the stand.
Overall, I and my daughter like this product and will be keeping it. Thanks for the suggestions.
