This is pretty much as simple a dock as you will find. It is solid, has non-slip, non-scratch pads on the bottom, and a flexible microUSB port that adjusts to the specific device and many, but not all, cases. The charge indicator light is subtle but easily seen and the price is right. No, the dock does not come with a wall adapter but that isn’t a huge obstacle since the phones do. I don’t love the fairly large SEIDIO on the back but, at least it is hidden when a phone is docked in place.

A note from Seidio: This product is not compatible with the CONVERT® and is not guaranteed to be compatible with other manufacturers’ products.

Just $29.95 here in our Amazon Affiliate Store. Or you can win the review sample!

MSRP: $29.95

What I Like: Does what it promises; Flexible microUSB connector has enough give to protect the vulnerable connection point

What Needs Improvement: No wall adapter; Only works with limited smartphones and not all HTC phones, SEIDIO name is too large and noticeable
