Simple and affordable: Lamicall Stand

With multiple viewing angles and a hole in the back to run your charging cable through, the Lamicall stand is a great way to keep your iPod touch accessible. Plus, its made of metal, so it won't fall over if you accidentally bump it.

Luxury option: Twelve South HiRise Deluxe

This tall metal stand places your iPod touch on a charging port a few inches of the desk or surface you have it standing on, creating a tower of technology that looks superb and unique. Don't worry about the height causing any instability because the stand weighs about a pound. It's sturdy enough to stay standing tall.

One cable simplicity: Belkin Powerhouse Charge Dock

The Belkin Powerhouse Charge Dock is one of the most elegant solutions for charging your iPhone/iPod and Apple Watch at the same time.

Plus, the Lightning connector can be adjusted in height, meaning even if you have a heavy-duty case, you'll be able to charge your iPod no problem.

A few suggestions

The iPod Touch 7 is the latest and greatest entry-level Apple device on the market, and you're, of course, going to need to keep it charged up. Since Apple uses Lightning connectors, you'll need specific charging accessories. We recommend the Avantree Charging Stand because it comes with a Mfi Lightning cable, allowing you to use your other charging cable somewhere else. Two cables are always better than one.

If you want a charging stand that is as striking as it is functional, look no further than the Twelve South HiRise Deluxe. Not only does it comes with a lightning cable, but also a micro USB cable, meaning you can charge all sorts of devices, not just your iPod.

Also, having a stand that gives you a place to charge your Apple Watch is pretty convenient. The Spigen wooden stand is a great stand that also has grooves for cable management.
