Twelve South HiRise 2 Deluxe Apple Android Charging Stand

Friday, August 11, 2017

Not all charging stands are created equal! If stylish looks and solid build is what you want from a charging stand, look no further than the HiRise 2 Deluxe by Twelve South!
The HiRise 2 Deluxe keeps your device at a very viewable angle so that you can use it without actually holding the device in your hands (perfect for mobile gaming).

At 220 grams, the base of the charging stand has a reassuring hefty weight so no worries about the charging stand wobbling about.

The height of the front support measures 1.19 inches (3.02 cm) while the total height of the HiRise 2 Deluxe charging stand is 3.19 inches (8.10 cm). As far as width and depth, the charging stand measures 3.5 inches (8.89 cm) and 3.75 inches (9.53 cm) respectively.
What's cool about the Twelve South HiRise 2 Deluxe charging stand is that it fits iPhones, the Apple TV Siri remote, Apple AirPods, iPad tablets, Android phones, game controllers and pretty much anything you can think of like a Conbrov spy camera!
The Conbrov spy cam mounted on the HiRise 2 Deluxe looks pretty neat and comes in handy as a hidden camera for the desk office cubicle.
Another plus you get with the HiRise 2 Deluxe charging stand is multiple handy accessories such as MFi-certified lightning and micro-USB cables, adjustable support post and cable height clips that you can use with a branded Apple Lightning cable.
The height clips are great as they allow you to adjust the height of the connector tip to 0mm, 3mm, and 6mm so you can even charge a device inside its case..

While it's a bit of a snug fit, you even can use the micro-USB clips with the Apple USB-C cable. The HiRise 2 Deluxe works with both the included Twelve South Lightning Cable and with the Apple Lightning Cable that came with your iPhone (.5 or 1m length only).

The back support accessory for the HiRise 2 Deluxe is also functional as it provides rear support while the device is seating on the charging stand. The back support also can slide backwards and forwards so you can adjust the back support when using a protective case.

You can undock a small device like a phone from the HiRise 2 Deluxe charging stand with one hand while bigger devices like an iPad will require two hands when undocking. If you are docking an iphone, the charging stand does not block the headphone port, speaker or microphones so sound is not muffled.
The HiRise 2 Deluxe truly and really is a sleak way to showcase your device while charging or syncing to an iMac or MacBook at the same time. Plus, because of the small footprint the HiRise 2 Deluxe charging stand takes little space on a desktop setup.
If you someone who gets annoyed when you can't find the charging cord when you needed the most, the HiRise 2 Deluxe solves that problem as it sits just there ready to use. You can also move the stand around very easily from your desktop to a bedside table for overnight charging.
