Review: Cute, Handy Stand & Charger for iPhone & iPad

First, you can tell it was designed by a teenager. It is an all-in-one phone and tablet stand that includes all of the items my own teenage girls look for; namely earbuds and a portable charger. Those items are self-contained in the special compartments in the stand. Plus, the iCaddy is sold in an assortment of fun and colorful designs. In fact, the hard part is choosing a design! And the price is very reasonable, considering it includes a portable USB charger and a set of earbuds.

Pros

  • Assortment of fun and colorful designs
  • Works as a tablet or phone stand
  • Includes earbuds
  • 2,600 mAh portable charger included
  • All-in-one storage

Cons

  • Hard to choose a design!
  • Bring your own Lightning-to-headphone jack cable

Final Verdict

The iCaddy does it all, at a reasonable price.
