I use my iPads daily for business use, and this easel basically makes my iPad an extra screen for all my work activities. I do my email and Social Networking on the iPad so I can use my desktop an laptop screens for design applications. There are only two things I would wish to improve this product: Include a rechargeable battery instead of 3-AAA slot, that recharges when the device is plugged in. Nice that it recharges iPad (or iPhone) when plugged in, but really wish I wasn't always having to remove and replace batteries and use a separate charger for those. Also, instead of it's own unique AC plug-in, making use of the USB rechargers that come with all iPads would be smart and make this much more travel friendly.

Comments about Portable Speaker Docking Station for iPad Tablet:

It didn't last long and I can't get a replacement for the non working part. The adaptor was of poor quality and the connection keeps stopping. If I wiggle and move the connection to the dock it may work for a short time. Very frustrating.

      It doesn't charge my iPad, the few times it did work, the speaker system was poor and cut off and on. I would not recommend this product and I am a huge fan of Brookstone Store. This product however is not worth the money.

            Comments about Portable Speaker Docking Station for iPad Tablet:

            I got this as a gift and the plug didn't work to charge the iPad and the speaker didn't turn on either. I tried using batteries and thought the light on the speaker did turn on there was no sound coming out of the speaker.

            Is this why I see that it is on sale. Brookstone just wants to unload these defective speakers and hope you don't come back within the 30-60 days of the warranty.

                Received as a christmas gift so I have no warranty. Worked well for couple months then speakers started popping followed by periods of no speakers at all. Finally the device started shutting itself off periodically. It is suppose to charge my ipad but will stop and sometimes will begin charging again but most of the time I have to remove ipad and insert again but this doesn't last very long. I would NOT advise anyone to waste your money on this devise!

                  The speaker sounds great. My son uses it at home to face time family. Its clear and loud. The stand is light and easy to move around. My Ipad feels stable but the material feels like it want take a fall but lets hope that doesn't happen. All n All its a good product and I recommend getting one.

                            I keep the iPad (1) next to the bed, for middle of the night emailing 'n such. The bedside table is slightly lower than the bed, so the angle of the iPad was always a problem. This raises it to just the right position for me. I listen to Tunein radio before I go to sleep, and the speakers seem more than adequate. Old time radio shows sound great, but, I am no audiophile.

                            The unit does charge my iPad as well. The only thing I might have wanted different, is the color. I would have preferred black. No big deal, it's a keeper.
