If you’re looking for a drool-worthy, but affordable stand for your Lightning Cable-equipped iPhone 5, iPad Mini or iPod Touch (5th Gen), then stop looking now.
Twelve South has created a brushed metal stand that not only looks great in your work space, but allows you to take FaceTime and standard calls hands-free. Unlike most other docks, HiRise doesn’t block your speakers, mic or headphone ports. It uses the Lightning Cable you already have and it works with many of the most popular cases in the world, like the OtterBox® Defender and Speck CandyShell.
While the HiRise obviously works with iPhone 5′s and iPod Touch’s, we feel it has the biggest visual impact with the iPad Mini. Get your Mini up high and vertical while streaming your favorite music or display your favorite photos, all while charging your device on this modern vertical perch. Looks good and works great? Sounds like a winning combination to us. $34.99 with free U.S. shipping.
