Pure Contour i1 air dock - but you can't dock

Just bought the above. Looks a great bit of kit...

But it's impossible to dock the phone in its case, the connector isn't long enough.

Do makers of docks not realise that most people put there phones in a case?

Do such things as extenders exist, does anyone know? Any other bright ideas?

I guess you are using the lightning option? If you iThingy is lightning then get a 30pin to Lightning adapter, use with the 30 pin option. That should fit.

I can't believe I didn't think of that!

30 pin to lightning adapter - about 1
lightning extender (that I finally found) - 20!

Hmm. Maybe I got giddy too soon.

Looking at things like this:

Still has wide shoulders and a short connector. Bet that still wouldn't reach past the case.

This is what I found that I'm sure will work:

But annoyingly expensive.

Get a new case with a full cut out on the bottom?

Not sure they exist. While searching, I have found some articles complaining that Apple have basically forced case manufacturers and dock manufacturers to meet design standards which are incompatible with each other.

Besides, I really like this case.
