The Kicker ik150 is like nothing you have ever heard in the clock radio line of products. This is an awesome product for many reasons. One of the many great features of this product is sound of course. It offers much more than just great quality sound as well. It charges the iphone or ipod with its built in docking station as you rest. When you get ready to go to bed attach the iphone or ipod to the top of the station. Its very easy to dock for charging. Simply attach the iphone to the ik150 by sitting it in the dock bay. Its that simple, really.
