    Fuz Designs sent me out their EverDock product to review and I'm very impressed with it. The premise behind this product is that the EverDock is a solid aluminum dock that you thread your own connection cable into, allowing it to be used with lightning cables, 30-pin cables or (if you are on the dark side) micro-USB. The implementation is really excellent--it's a great looking product that works very well. I've only tried it with the lightning cable option, not having any devices that use 30-pin or micro-USB, but they should work fine as well. One of the best things about this product is that it can be used with thin to moderate cases, as well as with naked devices. There are two sizes of rubber adaptor pads that can be put on it to adjust for differently sized cases. In the documentation, it states that it works with cases up to 4 mm thick. In my experience, it is only the thickness at the bottom and back of the case that matters in terms of fitting onto the dock. Many of my cases fit on the EverDock--I've tried and been successful so far with: Doc Artisan Sport Combo Case (just the removable phone case part), ZeroChroma Vario Protect, Thule Atmos X3, Griffin Identity Wallet, and the Verus Thor.

    Here's my YouTube review:

    Great review. Looks like a nice product, but for $50 I will stick with my TwelveSouth Hirise.

    $50 does seem high, but huge kudos to them for bringing out a universal product. I get so sick of seeing things like docks that have to be bought all over again just because you changed phones!

    Wow--I haven't tried the EverDock Duo. So sorry to hear about your iPhone and iPad! Which part of the EverDock Duo was scratching them?

    Wow, sorry. I haven't noticed that with the regular EverDock, but I am super-careful about making sure my iPhone is lined up right when I dock it.

    It looks to me like there is a gap underneath your phone i.e. the weight of the iPhone is only supported by the lightning connector rather than the rubber insert.

    It depends on the case used. I think in some situations, you are right, and that could be problematic...

    Thanks:)
