Docking Station Reviews For 2019

Gadget Review can help you find just the best docking station you are looking for with our docking station reviews and news. Ordinarily, a docking station allows you to plug in and charge a mobile device, like your smartphone, while still being able to see the screen. However, the best docking stations go far beyond this simple task and give you so much more to do. Many allow you to hook up multiple phones and tablet computers at the same time. Some are part of speaker systems so you can also list to music. The more advanced versions can even charge your phone wirelessly through contact points so you don’t have to plug anything in.

80s iPhone Boombox Docking Speaker

Well isn’t this cute: the Mini Boombox MP3 Speaker.  It’s actually nothing more than a passive set of speakers, but since they’re housed inside of an old school, break dancing era boombox, I can’t help but smile when I look at it.  Play your favorite 80’s rap song through it…

Kindle Fire Matchstick Speaker Dock Review

Kindle Fire Matchstick Speaker Dock Review

Sony RDP-XA700IP Airplay Speaker Dock Review

Late last year I reviewed Sony’s first iPad speaker dock, the RDP-X500IP.  Suffice to say I was pleasantly satisfied with most aspects of the speaker dock and ended up giving it an “excellent” rating, which is a half of a star short of perfect.  However, one of the drawbacks of…
