      iPort Charge Case and Stand is a great addition to your iPad.
    iPort

    I love having a big tablet in a dedicated stand on my desk, and I love wireless charging. So I was happy to check out the iPad's Charge Case and Stand 2, which does what it says on the box.

    Here's what we like

    • Elegant, easy-to-use design
    • Good build quality
    • Portrait and landscape support
    • Built-in USB charger

    And what we don't

    • Pretty expensive
    • Large charging mat
    • Can use permanent lamp

    Technically, the iPort design uses POGO plugs in its custom case and stands, so charging is not wireless. But it achieves the simple set-it-down pick-up resolution that made Qi chargers so popular. $ 160 more for some iPad designs- is a lot to ask, even if you bring both a stand and a charger in one package.

    iPort does what Apple doesn't

    It's hard to make Apple guilty of keeping wireless charging limited to the iPhone: putting it in the iPad would get rid of the tough metal shell, and the ergonomics in case and stand fit not really good with Qi. But I have fond memories of my HP TouchPad and Nexus 7, both tablets with wireless charging capability, and I often wish I had something similar to my Pixel C, a constant desktop companion. This iPort setting gives me a reason to make the switch.

      The case comes in two parts and can be docked vertically or horizontally.

    The case comes in two primary parts, which slide over each end of the iPad and click nicely together. It is a bit thick, especially at the bottom, where the case requires a transparent Lightning charger and a little extra space to sound through the lower firing speakers. But the soft-touch plastic feels fine in the hand and adds only about three-quarters of an inch to the height of the iPad. It feels more than possible to make a few hits.

      The through-through Lightning port can be removed to connect a cable.
    Michael Crider

    In view of the throughput, you can take it out with a little effort and expose the Lightning port for charging or data. This is the only aspect of the design that is less than elegant: I think iPort could have moved the POGO pins farther apart and placed a permanent Lightning port on the outside of the bag. It would have meant a smaller part to lose, and it does not have to be pushed in and out on the rare occasions when a cable connection is necessary.

    Finished for docking

    On the back of the case are two sets of POGO pins: one for standing and one for landscape. Put the iPad in the dock, and it begins to charge. Magnets help ensure that the bag is secured in the right place. Simple. Light. Attractive. When iPad is in place, it is charged at maximum speed.

      iPort charging base is neat and stable.
    Michael Crider

    There is a thoughtful design that goes into the doll as well. A subtle painted point on the right side of the bag lets you see where to rest on the tablet, as the extended bottom edge makes it a little asymmetric. While the dock is only for power and the large brick cannot be connected to your computer for data, it contains two handy USB ports on the dock to easily load other devices simultaneously.

      The charging base contains two USB devices port for charging other devices.
    Michael Crider

    The dock is heavy and robust, with a rubberized base that does not move when you put down or pick up the iPad. The angle is not adjustable, but it should work for most desktop and nightstand settings. You may need to make some adjustments if you want a different base for your kitchen.

    Conclusion

    I really like the design of this combo box. I know the appeal is limited – at the same price you can get a super-premium leather protection and a pretty good, non-charging stand. But if you like the convenience of never having to connect your tablet, I think it's worth the expense.

      The loading bag and stand are a solid combination, if expensive.
    Michael Crider

    The loading bag and stand 2 come in two sizes: one that fits the iPad, Air and Pro 9.7 in standard format, and another for the various iPad Mini designs. If you need a more semi-permanent option for a POS application, check out the iPad's Luxeport design.
