There have been rumors that Apple will ditch the Lightning connector in favor of USB-C for the iPhone for the last couple of years now, but so far, it hasn’t happened. That’s good news if you currently have a host of different Lightning accessories, and if you want to add another to your list, this official Lightning Dock is well worth picking up.

The official Apple Lightning Dock is a great way of charging your iPhone on a desk, because unlike some wireless chargers, it keeps your iPhone vertical, ready to be accessed when needed. It also means that you can see notifications and such on-screen, which is easier said than done when it’s laid flat.

Right now, Amazon is offering the Apple iPhone Lightning Dock in Black for just $18.99, although it’s a refurbished product. That means that it comes with Amazon’s 90-day warranty, and considering this dock retailed for $49 new, that’s quite the saving to make, refurbished or not.

This dock will work just fine with any iPhone that uses the Lightning connector, which is anything from the iPhone 5 onward. It’ll also work just fine with the iPod touch that also use the same connector, which means the iPod touch 5th generation and on are all good to go as well.

You can use it to charge and sync any iPhone that has a Lightning connector. Your iPhone sits upright in the dock as it syncs or charges”, so it’s ideal for a desk or countertop. Even when your iPhone is in an Apple-designed case, it’s easy to dock. And you can unlock iPhone or use Touch ID without having to remove it from the dock.

If you want a charging solution for your iPhone but don’t want, or trust the many wireless options on the market, then this is a great and relatively inexpensive option to consider. Grab it now before it’s gone.
