iPhone 5 Flash Dock puts a little light in the Lightning cable

Apple decided not to make a dock for the iPhone 5, leaving that potential market wide open to third party accessory makers. iPhone5mod is hoping to fill that particular void with the Flash Lightning Dock for iPhone 5. Not only does it include an Apple-like white dock, but an optional Lightning cable that actually glows.

The iPhone 5 Flash Lightning Dock comes in 2 parts. A classic dock for iPhone 5 and an illuminated Lightning Cable. Charge and sync your iPhone 5 with the iPhone 5 Dock. Your iPhone sits upright in the dock as it syncs or charges, so it’s perfect for a desk or countertop. It comes included with a specially made Lightning Cable that has an intelligent power managements system built in. You can actually see the flow of current going into your iPhone 5.

You can check out the video above, and if you like what you see, head on over to the website below for ordering info.

Fed up of waking up early and rushing to office daily? Why not try Online job? i Love my job, since I've been bringing in $82h… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online… www.fox87.com

It looks really, really cool but I could see that being a distraction in your peripheral vision. I still want one, though! :-D

infty says:

Yes, but I want to put it in the dock and use my headphones at the same time.

What we need is a dock that has a removable headphone plug at the bottom and an in jack at the base. If we want to use the headphones, we plug the headphone into the dock and plug the headphones into the dock. If we don't want to use the headphones, then we remove the headphone plug at the bottom. Hold on while I go patent that.

E-POTS says:

if a pin is inserted into the headphone jack it will stop all sound coming out of the speakers. For a dock to work that way you want, you will need a lever to raise and lower the headphone jack when not in use.

OK, make it a little DIY project. Buy this and drill some small holes for 3.5mm connections one at the base to connect to the iPhone headphone jack and one on the back or front of the dock to plug in ur headphones

Quintus says:

Nice! I would still prefer a pure charging dock which uses a microUSB to provide electricity to the dock and then a lightning connector built-in to sit the iPhone on. This still requires you to get your own lightning cable or pay for an extra one.

Evidence that this is in high demand? The site is no longer responding.....

rewNATION says:

I hate docks and i don't have an iphone 5 but i would definitely buy this mainly for that sweet cable

Carioca32 says:

Ok, that's a really cool cable.

berry15 says:

how did he circumvent apple's lightning chip thing. thought you could only use their stuff?

Appletitude says:

Cable price dictates my interest level. Unfortunately, the site appears down so I will move my interest to the next "iPhone 5 related bauble". :)

jshum says:

The lighting dock you guys posted a couple weeks ago looks better than this one. At least I hope so cuz I ordered one! Lol

mikells43 says:

you can buy the cable only, this looks cheezy the way the connection is on the dock.... and the cable looks cheezy. thelightningdock.com is a badass dock ive found.... im going to buy that one i think.
