These charging docks from iSkelter look like no others I’ve seen. The Chisel docks for iPad mini, iPhone 4/4S, or iPhone 5 are made of bamboo. Space for the device has been “chiseled” out of the block of wood, and a channel controls the charging cable to prevent tangles. The stands can be used horizontally or vertically. They can simply keep your device off your desktop as you charge, or you can use it as a stand for watching videos. The Chisel for iPhone 4/4S is shown empty, so you can see the finger hole that’s used to push the device for easy removal from the stand. Chisel stands are all made in the US and are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. The iPad mini version is $59. The two iPhone versions are normally $50, but they are on sale for $39 at the moment.
