Dock Cable Extender for the iPhone and iPod Touch

I was flipping through a CyberGuys catalog over the weekend and couldn’t help but smile when I saw the RadTech Dock Extender for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It took me back over 12yrs ago when I reviewed The Bridge for the PalmPilot. It’s true what they say, “everything old is new again…”. The Dock Extender is a small 30 pin adapter that plugs into the end of your original charge/sync cable and gives you a slimmer connector that more easily plugs into the bottom of your iPhone when it’s in a case (including Apple’s own bumper case). If you find that you have to remove your favorite case whenever you want to charge or sync, grab this $19.95 adapter and that problem will be a thing of the past.

    1. @Jason What’s interesting is that I did a search on amazon and found the same adapter for $27.95. Now that’s markup! I’ve not looked, but ‘m wondering if you can find a similar adapter on a site like Deal Extreme for just a couple of bucks?

  2. I just got one!!! You beat me to it!

    I will confirm that with this adapter, the iPhone 4, with the bumper case, will fit in the Original iPad keyboard dock. Happy typing!

  3. This item only costs $5 more than the similar item for the PalmPilot to which Julie linked. And that was 13 years ago. Hardly an iOS premium.
