iHome dock adapter for iPhone 4s with Otterbox Defender



I was given an iHome and an Otterbox Defender for Christmas, and I can't use them both (but from what I've read, it's a common theme with any case for an iPhone). I see a few of these DockStubz and iExtend Slim (to name two) out there.

Alternatively, having the phone stand up in the dock isn't terribly important to me (I just like the speaker), so I see several different extension cables that are pinned on both sides (male/female vs USB/male).


As I can't seem to find anything that is endorsed by Apple, does anyone know of one that is? Otherwise, does anyone have any personal experience with these, and would you mind sharing?


Thanks all

I'd return the iHome if I could. Any Sony jam box with a line in port would sound better. Anything would sound better.

We bought one of these for the dock we have in our kitchen. SendStation Dock Extender It works great, and it isn't just the little extender, it also has a stand to support the back of the phone. I've got a little memorex iPhone dock and FM radio here at work, and the phone lies flat in it so I just bought this RadTech

take that version back, and get the iA100. it uses bluetooth, so you don't have to "dock" it.

100% agree. I have the iA100. Not only does it charge my iphone with Otterbox case, it will also charge an ipad. (I'm sure everyone on the OT has 3 ipads).

I have a Klipsch igroove. It has great sound and I think it will hold a phone with a case on it. Got it at Best Buy.

I use the adapter from CableJive. It's solid. Charges and plays
