NEWS – Nightstands are usually small, so you need to maximize the usefulness of anything you keep on them. The Twelve South HiRise Duet packs a lot of utility in a small footprint to earn its place there. It charges your iPhone, charges your Apple Watch, and puts the Watch in Nightstand mode to serve as your alarm clock – all in a 3.5″ x 3.75″ footprint.
The HiRise Duet is made of metal with a Napa leather accent. The Lightning charging cable and Apple Watch charging puck are integrated into the stand, so you won’t need to provide your own cables. Up to 15W of power is provided to the chargers from a single AC power cable. Twelve South says: “With 15-watts of Lightning Power, HiRise Duet charges your iPhone 40% faster than standard USB, and almost *twice* as fast as wireless.”
The height of the Lightning connector can be adjusted to accommodate most thin iPhone cases. The Duet works with all iPhones all the way back to the iPhone 5; it can even charge Apple remotes and the Pencil, too. The watch charger works with all generations and sizes of the Apple Watch. Since it weighs about a pound, you won’t have to worry the stand will tip over when you try to interact with your iPhone as it charges or fumble to snooze the alarm.
Normally priced at $119.99, the HiRise Duet is currently only $99.99 at Twelve South.
