It seems like a while since we reviewed a dock for the iPhone or iPad and now their are plenty on the market to choose from, so looking for that one that deserves pride of place on your bedside table has got harder.

Premium One from Enblue Technology is today’s contender and a valid one it is indeed. We have the W3 to review which is one of three in the range.

Premium One Range

As you can see, this was released to look after your Apple Watch but of course many of us have a range of Apple devices that need charging. If you are like me, your Watch and iPhone go on charge every night without fail as they wouldn’t last very long the next day without it.

The W3 is simple, but you can see it has Apple’s simplicity about it and that is something most of us find attractive. As we once said “the dock looks like it could have been made by Apple themselves” and we still think so. The dock is crafted out of aircraft grade aluminium and comes in silver, black and a bi-colour which I have to say is quite cool. Mixing aluminium and mahogany is quite a gamble, but one that has paid off in this instance.

Of course this isn’t simply a stand but a charging dock too and that is where it gets interesting. We have had a few of these kinds of docks in the past and most of them have separate cables for each device as the stand is simply supporting your cable infrastructure.

The W3 has two lightning cables in-built which exit the stand as one cable which of course looks much better than multiple leads dangling out of the back where ever you have this situated. Supplied is a smart charging adapter which accepts 4 USB’s at a maximum of 5A which is more than enough to charge all of these devices at once taking up only one plug socket on the wall.

The dock is designed to accept the new Apple Watch charger which just sits in the hoop nicely. It is made to be able to thread the cable through the dock itself keeping the minimalist style that Enblue have tried so hard to achieve here.

The first thing I noticed when I got this out of the box was the sheer quality. It has just the right amount of weight, the lightning cables do not shift when used and also the little touches of pads where your iPhone and iPad will sit so that neither the dock or device gets scratched.

I have to say after a few weeks of living with this dock, I really do like it and have now relegated my Elevation Dock elsewhere as cables are always the issue which this product eliminates for me. This would be at home sitting on your bedside table, office desk or home study. Some may find issue with its price which is 139 Euros for the W3. It sounds expensive but when you actually consider the build quality, weight, material and of course the inclusion of lightning cables it is well worth the price tag.

Looking for a dock that takes all of your devices and charges them? Look no further, this might just be the best multiple Apple dock we have ever reviewed.

    I like the looks of the W3 which
    I got with the mahogany band . The iPhone and watch charging stations are great but
    I find it almost impossible to put my iPad Air on the charger so
    I don’t use that station.
    I wish
    I had bought the W 2
