After Apple’s Watch, it’s time for iPad Pro to standalone with all the grace and elegance. As Logi, a Logitech sub-brand, announces Logi BASE, the first iPad Pro stand which uses Apple’s Smart Connector technology to take charging to a whole new level.
It is designed according to the way you use your 9.7-inch or 12.9-inch iPad Pro and to make charging hassle-free.
How does Logi BASE work?
Last September, Apple first introduced its Smart Connector technology when it announced the bigger iPad Pro. At that time, the 3 small dots on the side of the tablet were marketed as a means to power and transmit information between the iPad Pro and an accessory.
Leveraging those charging pins the elegant stand supplies electricity to the device while propping it up.
It means you only need to place your iPad Pro on its side in the BASE, where magnets will ensure proper alignment.
Things You Should Know About the Stand Before Going For It
The Logi BASE is made of aluminum and has a weighted foot for stability. It measures 3.23″ H x 7″ W x 4.48″ D and weighs only 12.6 ounces. And its input/output rating is 5.2V and 2.4A.
It’s MFI certified to meet the safety and quality standards of Apple.
It provides a 70-degree angle and will support the iPad Pro in both landscape and portrait modes.
It’ll take 6-7 hours to charge your iPad Pro fully without running any apps in the background.
You can use it on your desk next to a laptop or desktop for the perfect second screen to enable new levels of productivity and creativity.
It’ll also be compatible with iPad Pro silicon cases by Apple.
The bottom of the BASE has an anti-slip pad and the magnets are strong enough to secure the iPad in place. So, don’t worry, it’s not going to fall.
And Here’s the Price of Logi BASE to Make It All Yours
The Base sells for $99.99 and can be pre-ordered here, but the exact shipping date is still unknown.
The price is actually quite reasonable, given the beautiful appearance and functionality of this charging cradle.
So, get ready to use your iPad Pro all hands-free, SOON.
