Review: Premium Docking Station for Multiple Devices

If you're like me, and most Apple users, you probably have multiple iOS devices. But even if you and your household have a mixed environment of Android and Apple gear, the Udoq (starting at $124.80) universal docking system has you covered. This beautiful, award-winning, aircraft-grade aluminum docking station hides away charging cables so there's just one cable running to the A/C outlet. Speaking of aircraft, it even looks a bit like an airplane wing.

Udoq

The Udoq offer several sizes to accommodate as many as eight devices, depending on their width, and you can select Lightning, microUSB or USB-C, so as your devices change, you can still use the Udoq. They even offer a Qi-based wireless charging adapter as well as an Apple Watch adapter. There's also a wall-mount option! The udoq is the first worldwide patented docking station for any of Apple's mobile devices. The flexibility, and the ability to plug or unplug, easily beats the competition.

Udoq

To be fair, the udoq system is not cheap; but it's not made cheaply, either. And if you add up the cost of multiple docks, not to mention the unsightly cables, the udoq offering could end up being cheaper. The five-to-six-port USB to A/C charging adapters, included in various configurations, would be expensive as well, so you're getting a lot in one purchase.

Pros

  • Numerous adjustment options and accessories
  • Future-proof
  • Qi Wireless Charging option
  • Beautiful design 
  • Cables hidden away

Cons

  • Expensive

Final Verdict

If you need to charge a lot of devices, udoq has a beautiful charging station for you.
