Although I have a small family -- just me, my wife, and our Internet-famous cat Ruby -- we've somehow accumulated a lot of iOS devices. My wife and I both have third-generation iPads, we both have iPhones, and I also have an iPad mini. Keeping all of those devices charged up has been a bit of a challenge, but the new PowerDock 5 (US$99.99) charging and storage dock from Griffin looks like it could clear the way for orderly charging of all the devices we can throw at it.
Unlike the oddly designed and named Kanex Sydnee ($99), the PowerDock is completely open on top. That's actually quite important, because the Sydnee has a closed design that means that full-sized iPads in some cases will not fit inside the charging stand. Here, Griffin chose to go simple with its design, and that makes all the difference: Five full-sized iPads in cases can be dropped into the slots atop the PowerDock 5.
There are six clear plastic "walls" that separate and hold up the devices while they're being charged. Each of the five slots has its own 2 amp port -- you will have to provide your own charging cable. That makes it possible for the PowerDock 5 to charge both 30-pin dock connector and Lightning cable devices interchangeably.
