Review: EverDock Duo Cuts Clutter on Your Desk

I'm always on the lookout for the perfect dock, and I usually have two on my desk to accommodate my iPhone 6s and iPad mini 3. So imagine my surprise when I saw the EverDock Duo ($69.99) from FŪZ Designs. This dock has two slots for two iPhones or two iPads or an iPad and iPhone. Technically you can also use it with Android or Windows Phone or other devices that have a microUSB port at the bottom. This is because the EverDock Duo doesn't include Lightning cables but rather has adapters for your own cables (or you can use the included microUSB cables.) This saves costs (theoretically; it's still a $70 dock) and allows the user to decide how to configure it.

While it's not cheap, FŪZ Designs does offer volume discounts on two or more docks; so find a friend who values quality. I appreciated the amount of heft of the aluminum dock and sticky bottom. It is available in Single or Dual Dock Models, if you prefer.

Because the cables are not included, there is some assembly required. The dock includes inserts to accommodate different devices, with or without cases. Be careful as you could lose those inserts. 

Pros

  • Perfect amount of heft
  • Available in Single or Dual Dock Models
  • Volume discounts
  • Lightning and/or microUSB ports

Cons

  • Does not include Lightning cables
  • Pricey
  • Some assembly required
  • Could lose inserts

Final Verdict

If you have two or more iOS devices (and really, you should) the EverDock Duo from FŪZ Designs should keep them charged in style!
