Ch-ch-charge it up! Here are the best stands and docks for your iPhone SE
Your iPhone SE is an awesome little powerhouse of a device, but the charging cable – or any charging cable, really – can be a pain in the butt. The cord can fray, the cable can easily go missing, and sometimes it takes forever to fully charge your iPhone's battery.
Luckily for you, there are dozens of docks and stands out there that make charging your iPhone SE simple and efficient. You can even customize the look of your dock to suit your sense of style, but with so many options out there, which are the best of the best?
Here are the best stands and docks out there for your iPhone SE!
Twelve South HiRise 2
You can always trust iMore. Our team of Apple experts have years of experience testing all kinds of tech and gadgets, so you can be sure our recommendations and criticisms are accurate and helpful. Find out more about how we test.
If you're looking for a sleek, minimalist, and convenient, charging dock, then we encourage you to take a peek at Twelve South's HiRise 2!
You won't have to worry about the HiRise 2 blocking and muffling the speakers like most iPhone docks: its simple, narrow design allows sound to travel freely, making music come out as crisp as can be.
While we're specifically looking at docks and stands for the iPhone SE, it's worth noting that the HiRise 2 can also charge your Magic Mouse 2, Magic Keyboard, iPad, AirPods, Apple TV remote, and so much more!
You can pick up Twelve South's HiRise 2 for around $40 in black or silver, but here's hoping they come out with a rose gold and gold option soon to perfectly match your iPhone SE.

Sinjimoru Aluminum iPhone dock
Futuristic and funky (and quite frankly fabulous), the highly rated Sinjimoru Aluminum iPhone dock looks and works as a perfect partner for keeping your iPhone SE charged and ready to go!
Built with a solid aluminum base and a soft silicone padding to protect against any scratches or damage, and already equipped with its own Lightning cable for convenient charging, the Sinjimoru Aluminum iPhone dock is designed to securely charge your iPhone while still looking like a piece of modern Apple tech.
You can pick up the Sinjimoru for around $22 in silver or black, but we must say that the silver looks a lot more Apple-y (if that's the look you're going for, of course!).

Touch ID works effortlessly with this stellar iPhone SE accessory, while the dock itself features an audio port for headphones that includes a remote control. You can even use this stand for important speakerphone calls.
You can pick up this Lightning dock in jet black, silver, gold, space gray, white, and rose gold.

Wow so many options! I like that the Apple dock has an audio port.
How could you not include Elevation Dock in this list! It is the best dock on the market IMHO: https://www.elevationlab.com/products/elevation-dock-3
