Twelve South has launched the HiRise 2, a refined version of its iPhone charging stand. The new model sports a new design, new colors and new functionality.
The HiRise 2 has a footprint that’s one-third smaller than the original, saving space on your bedside or desk. It’s twice as heavy for added stability with larger devices. It comes in two new colors besides silver: “Technical Black” (the perfect complement to Apple’s new Jet Black and Black iPhones) and “Matte White.”
You can not only use the HiRise 2 to charge your iPhone and iPad, but also the Apple TV remote, Apple AirPods, Magic Mouse 2, Magic Keyboard, and most third party game controllers. In addition to charging, it allow you to position your iPhone atop the stand to raise your screen to a more comfortable height for FaceTime or Skype calls. The Deluxe model includes both MFi-certified Lightning and Micro-USB cables.
The HiRise 2 costs $39.99; the HiRise 2 Deluxe is $59.99. Both are available now. Look for our upcoming review.
