    Hi everyone...

    I really like the look of the candyshell, but I use my ihome and a dock on a sony radio I have at work all the time. Will the candyshell dock okay? I use the ihome the most, so I guess that would be the most important. I don't think I would want to take the case on and off all the time. Opinions?

    Very doubtful it will dock. This is really the only issue with the CandyShell IMO.

    To get around that issue I use a sendstation Dock Extender for my clock radio dock thingie.

    In case you are still considering - no, it won't dock, not quite, not into the universal dock at least. Needs to be just a sliver thinner on the bottom - you might even be able to polish it out - or get the candy shell flip.

    The standard dock adapters don't do so well with the Candy Shell. I use the LYCO Adapter with mine and it works great. It fits into anything that accepts dock adapter inserts.
