The stand makes iPad workflow easier.

Not too long ago, I was given a 12-inch iPad Pro with Apple Pencil. Since I am an artist and love to draw, the upgrade with the Apple Pencil made it easier for me to transition to a digital format with my artwork. There has hardly been a day or night that I don’t use my iPad and pencil for artwork purposes. The only issue I really had was having an easy way to keep the Apple Pencil charged. Since I use the iPad so much, I put it on charge every night, but with it plugged into a Lightning cable, how am I supposed to charge the pencil so that I can use the two at the same time? The solution to my problem came when the Oittm Desktop Apple Pencil Charging Stand hit my desk.

DETAILS

The Apple Pencil Charging Stand features a 2-in-1 design as it charges and provides a handy storage spot for your Apple Pencil. In addition to storing the pencil, it also provides a place for you to store the cap so that you don’t lose it while the pencil is charging. The stand is designed to be easy to use and the only thing you have to do is plug it into the provided Lightning port. The stand is made out of high-quality materials so that it remains durable and stable for long-term use. The base has an anti-slip silicone mat that provides strong friction against most surfaces to that it won’t slide around. The rest of the stand is made from solid aluminum and wood so that it has an elegant appearance. The stand is affordable and helps you keep your desktop nice and neat.

USER EXPERIENCE

The charging stand came in a clearly labeled box with solid branding included. When I opened the box, I was happy to find that the dock was neatly packaged and already assembled for use. Oittm includes a user manual with the dock, but it does not include a Lightning cable, which is needed for the dock to have power for charging your pencil.

The charging is weighted nicely and it has a smooth finish. The wooden base is beautiful and the silicone mat does a good job of keeping the stand from slipping. On the front of the stand, there is a small light that shows when it’s charging. When I was charging the Apple Pencil, I never saw it turn green but it still worked nicely. The back of the stand has a Lightning port for connection to power. A standard Lightning cable — like the one that comes with an iPad — will work with it.

CONCLUSION

The Oittm Desktop Apple Pencil Charging Stand is very useful. I love the way it stands out on my desk. It makes me happy knowing that now I can charge my Apple Pencil and not have to go searching for it later. It sits on my desk perfectly and makes things so much easier on me when I am doing my work. The Charging Dock for the Apple Pencil is Great, I prefer this over anything else.
