Vapor Dock | By Element Case

Element Case is a California-based company dedicated to creating high end, beautifully crafted products made in the USA. They are famous for their amazing aluminum cases for the iPhone.  Their new product is the Vapor Charge/Sync Dock for iPhone and iPod. If you´re reading this, it´s probably because you love a good gadget and like to keep your stuff organized, the Vapor is a great solution for those who think plugging the cable into the docking port is just too generic. The Vapor sits beautifully on you´re desktop, all you need to do is slide in your iPhone/iPod for a quick charge or sync.
 
The Vapor dock comes in a nicely presented black box, and besides the dock there are a few extras: a 30 pin connector, a screw tool and two different sizes of back rests.  
 
The Vapor Dock is one of those products that must be picked up and held to really experience it. Its then that youll feel the weight and solidity of the precision machined aluminum form. It features clean lines and delicate surface details that create precision highlights. The new FLUX Finish provides a satin like surface that makes the cool metal soft to the touch. Turn the dock over and you find smart details like the large machined cable management pocket that keeps your desktop clean and clear of excess cable clutter. And then theres the cleverly engineered collet that locks the proven Apple designed 30 pin connector firmly in place.  
 
Vapor Dock has another great feature, it amplifies the sound coming from your device’s speakers while it’s docked. It has precision machined holes in front of the dock that work in conjunction with tuned air chambers to amplify sound emitted from the tiny iPhone speakers.  
 
The Vapor dock also has the ability to fit various types of protective cases, it comes with two different sizes of back rests allowing you to accommodate your phone without removing your case, how cool is that?  
 
You can tell a lot of thought went into the details, and you can see the product was designed to sit nicely next to an Apple computer, in fact this looks like a product that could of been designed by Apple itself. It really is refined and looks great from all angles.
