Richard Solo has a good reputation for its external iPhone batteries and has begun to expand into other iPod and iPhone accessories. Its latest offering is the iPhone/iPod Dual Charging Station which sells for $45 from RichardSolo.com.'

If you're a two iPhone family it's a great solution for routine overnight charging and minimizes the "where did I leave my iPhone?" problem that plagues my family several times per week.

It's a handy two-port charging dock that fits the iPhone and all iPods (except the shuffle, natch) by way of six (included) dock adapters. Because I tend to use a case on my iPhone I opt for no adapter in the charging dock which seems to work fine.

Richard Solo's dual-bay charger costs $5 less than the Griffin version (which I reviewed in November 2008) and features piercing blue LEDs that are right out of The Fast and The Furious. The lights are a handy visual indicator that your iPhone has a good connection, and if you prefer darkness they can be turned of via a switch on the side.
