    I switched from the 3rd Generation iPad, which used the 30 pin dock connector, to the iPad mini with retina display, which of course uses a lightning connector.

    I always used the iPad dock, as having a permanent place where my iPad could rest was a huge benefit to me, as I have always been careless, meaning that I quite often have no idea where I have put my iPad, unless I dock it in the same place after use.

    I am a big fan of the Elevation Dock (with the addition of the nanosuction base pad) for my iPhone 5S, and since Apple has deemed not to make an iPad dock with lightning, mores the pity, I was wondering if any of you have good suggestions for attractive iPad mini docks.

    I like the Satechi iFit-3BT Bluetooth Portable Rechargeable Speaker Stand, it can fit for iPad or iPhone, small, potable and have a good sound as well.

    Thank you, but I am not looking for something which can provide power to the iPad, is permanently in one place and does not have a speaker system - I have a Bowers and Wilkins A7 speaker unit which is plentiful for that requirement.

    I had seen this one online, and reviews have been mixed, lots of mention that due to the universal nature of the design, compromises have naturally had to have been made, which mean it isn't quite as slick as it could be, or as solid a unit as the elevation dock. Thank you for the advice though.

    I have the everdock. Do you use a case for your iPad mini. It works great with no case using my iPad Air.

    I use a Smart Cover with my mini; if you could take some shots of the everdock in action I would be very thankful.

    Same as above poster. I use he Hi Rise as well and works well for both mini and iphone. It looks really good next to an iMac as well.

    Same here, I also have the HiRise. Just got it a few weeks ago and I couldn't be happier!

    We have 6 iOS devices in the house: 3 iPhones, 3 iPad minis. Two of the iPhones have two different cases, one doesn't have a case, and two of the iPad minis use Smart Covers, the other uses a Smart Case.

    The HiRise allows them all to sit on the dock securely even though the cases, or lack of a case, cause them all have varying heights and depths.

    And it looks great, especially next to our iMac. :D
