Charge Case and Stand: your iPad’s Sidekick.

The system includes two main parts: The Charge Stand and the Cover Case.

  • Plug the Charge Stand in a central location in your home, where everyone can access it. The stand adjusts to 3 different mounting angles, plus it accepts and charges your iPad in a Charge Case in either portrait or landscape orientations. Drop your Charge Case onto a Charge Stand as magnets auto-align the case for charging and secure mounting.
  • The Charge Case contains magnets to accept the cover seamlessly, creating a full cocoon around your iPad.  There’s no need to take the Smart Cover off ever because your Charge Case with an Apple Smart Cover attached will fit elegantly onto a Charge Stand. The Charge Case even has a removable lightning module, giving you access to your iPad’s lightning port for charging with a cable on the go.

Each version includes both the Charge Stand and the Cover Case. You can also purchase additional iPort Charge Stands to place in several locations throughout your home.
