I have both an iPad and iPhone in my house and I never use the factory charge cables for either of them. I have an alarm clock beside my bed that I dock them on to charge instead. The bad part is that if the iPad needs charged I have to pull my iPhone off and then the iPhone goes dead before I expect it to. JVC has a new audio system that will let you charge both the devices at once.
The audio system comes in two versions called the UX-VJ5 and the UX-VJ3. The two share the same key features, most notably the space to dock and charge your iPhone and iPad at the same time.Both have video out and audio inputs, and have an AM/FM tuner built in. The only difference between the two versions is a CD player and a USB port. The VJ5 has a CD player behind where the iPad sits and a USB port for external digital audio files. The VJ5’s CD player will play MP3 and WMA files on disc as well.
Power output for the system is 15W per speaker. You can get the docks in several colors including green, white, black, and red. Pricing is unknown at this time and the audio systems will hit Japan first.
