Logi Base :: First Impressions

by Volker Weber


When I got the press release a few weeks ago, I knew I had to have this. Logi Base is just a beautiful piece of engineering. It resembles an iMac but it improves on the design. Let's start with the invisible:


The bottom is very sticky. When you place an iPad Pro on Base, you can use it as if you were holding it with a firm grip. Base it not going to move at all. I placed a business card on it and it isn't sliding one bit. This gives you an idea of how sticky the bottom is.


Base has a Smart Connector for the iPad Pro. When you dock it, Base will charge the iPad. The magnets at the connector grab the iPad and hold it in place. It's very easy to hit the right spot. At the same time Base is heavy enough that you can undock the iPad with just one hand. That's an important consideration for a dock. If you need to hold the dock with one hand when removing the device, you might as well plug it into a cable.


iPad Pro just leans against the Base. Drop it on the connector and then let it rest. As easy as that. You don't have to take the iPad out of the Apple Silicone Case. As you can imagine, that was taken into account when designing Base. And there is something else I noticed:


Should Apple decide to make a Plus size iPhone 7 Pro with the same Smart Connector, then Base is perfectly sized to hold it.

Base does not come with a Lightning cable (or a charger). Editor-refuses-to-give-it-back award. Big time!

Schön dass nun auch Eigentümer von Apple-Produkten die Features einer "Sony Dockingstation DK39" geniessen können ;)

Das Sony-Produkt ist absolut zu empfehlen, es löst genau wie Wireless Charging ein Problem von dem man bis zum Aha-Erlebnis nicht wusste, dass es gelöst werden muss.

Sieht hübsch aus. Sollte auch mit dem "Silikon Case" funktionieren, oder?
