- Multimedia charging and data sync docking station for Apple iPhone 3G
- With the iPhone 3G Dock, you get easy access to a USB port for syncing or charging and an audio line out port for connecting to powered speakers. You can even conduct speakerphone calls with your iPhone 3G in its dock.

No cables included but still hella cheap! You can get spare cables on DX for £1-£2 if you need them, but you only need the standard USB cable you get with the iPhone for charging and syncing. Shipping takes up to 2 weeks but is sometimes quicker.

Just ordered mine!

My first deal so please go easy on me! =D

Before anyone asks, no, it's not a genuine Apple product but should do the job nicely.

Looks good

From Ndrwzheng @ DX,

"I bought this off eBay, when this wasn't available on DX. Now, let me explain all of this. First, it cannot fit dock adapters! You'll be left with a HUGE gap behind your iPod/iPhone. Second, the S-Video out does not work for any iPod that came after the iPod touch, so including the 1st gen touch, 3rd gen nano, classic...... goes on a long list. What you can do if you have a touch in my case, is to pry off the white plastic casing, so the inside shows up. I will take a photo, then theres a space to super glue on your dock adapter. Warning, THIS METHOD WILL NOT WORK WITH THE IPOD CLASSIC/VIDEO/FAT OR THICK IPODS because the dock adapter is too large. Also, this dock was made for the 3rd gen iPod (the normal one, wayy long ago back in 2003)"

Hummm I become suspicious as well - but I have purchased it already - .....

This is the official one - from top to bottom: iPods, the iPod EDGE, and the new iPhone 3G

Well it does specifically say its for the iPhone 3G! But its handy to know for others if they need it for an iPod they sell iPod ones too!

And I have now canceled my order...

I think it should be fine! The review that left a comment on the DX page said he got it off ebay so how he knows its the exact same one is beyond me. The dock just got added to DX this morning so I guess its trial and error. I think it will deffinately fit it, just might not be as snug as the official apple one which costs... a lot more! But yeah I'll let you know!

I'm not sure, some reviews say they will, some say they won't! There's a few which look similar going about but the one on DX has only just been added yesterday so noone knows untill it's delivered =]

great price ..... rep + heat added

i would be really interested if this fits the iphone 3g

Received my dock today! Audio and Video out don't seem to work like the comments suggest, but the iPhone 3g fits fine albeit a little loose it syncs and charges like normal which is what I bought mine for =]

Banned

Are these official? If not these probably dont adhere to british standards and could blow up your LUBBY iPhone

BE CAREFUL!

Cheers for the update!

Still debating whether to buy or wait for advanced models...

Don't know about anyone else, but I just got mine today and it's an official Apple dock - quality for £5

Original Poster

it is official apple dock like dx say, but it was for an older iPod model which happens to be big enough for most other iPods and iPhones. Anyone managed to get audio out working? Going to buy another one for my room because it's so easier to charge with it

from comments anyone confirm tis iworks with iphone?

"Read my other posts, but I'll explain. This dock isn't made for the iPhone 3G, so you most likely will get those annoying pop up messages. Also, you can't fit dock adapters. If you modify it, by taking out the plastic shell (it's only 1 piece, take a mini screwdrive and pry it out slowly from the bottom slits), you might be able to glue on a dock adapter for the iPhone 3G. However, the adapter might be too thick to fit, I have a Classic, and the adapter couldn't be glued on, but I also have an iPod touch, and the iPod touch dock adapter could be glued on. I will post pictures if requested. "

Thanks for the deal I have just ordered one from deal extreme, I only need it for charging.

Not sure about the original iphone but can confirm the 3G Charges and syncs, although the video and audio doesn't work as said in my previous post. It's excellent if you don't need audio and video out as it's a genuine apple product for £5~ =]

cheers Krato
