dodocool Lightning Dock Review (DA122)
The dock comes in a regular cardboard box as we usually see in most of their products packaging. In the front of the box is the logo of the company with its tagline “cool your life”. The back has some info about the gadget and the compatibility with different iOS devices.
Inside the box, we get:-
- The Dock (black color)
- Cradle/ Stand for the device(transparent)
- Instruction manual
- Warranty Registration card
- Micro USB to USB cable
Design and Compatibility
The device is made of light polycarbonate plastic and silicone material with a matte finish. It measures 3.15 x 2.87 inches and has a height of 0.88 inches. The length of the USB cable that you get is approx 3.3ft with an Input and Output of 5V.
At the top of the dock is a flexible lighting connector which will let you use your device with most of the thin covers and cases. There you will also get a slot to insert the cradle or stand that you get inside the box. It also has a space beside the lighting connector that can be used as a stand to put your device in a horizontal position. On the back, we have one USB port for connecting it via a data cable and with that, there is a 3.5mm audio jack.
Like in other products they have also given a non-slippery bottom to the dock. This makes sure your device stays in position and doesn’t get misplaced while you interact with it. You can use iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6, 6S, 6 Plus, 6S Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, X and iPod Touch 5th Generation without any issue with this dock connector.
As we already discussed this gadget will allow you to connect your devices to various media outlets. It will let you connect your iOS devices with the lightning connector port and use it as a stand. The cradle or the stand will let your device stay in a comfortable viewing angle and handsfree communication. With this gadget, you can charge your iPhone or iPod and keep listening to music whether in headphones or speakers with its 3.5mm audio jack.
This dock is priced at $21.99 which is decent.

dodocool Lightning Dock: Is it worth it?
Well as nowadays iPhones are losing their audio jack, this product really is very handy. All the iPhones after the 7 and 7 Plus can be plugged to the dock easily. This way you get to listen to music, podcasts or have a video call and charge your device simultaneously. I will certainly recommend this product as it has really useful features and can solve the problems for both the charging and connectivity in one shot. You can buy it on Tomtop for $21.99.
