Compared to the huge number of 30-pin Dock Connector systems that used to be on the market, Philips has relatively little competition when it comes to Lightning-equipped speakers. Its new AJ7260D/37 Dual Dock Triple Charging Clock Radio ($130) bridges the gap between generations, bearing one of each kind of connector, as well as including a 2. 1-Amp USB port on the back for charging a third device. This alarm clock has a larger footprint than many, at over 10” wide and about 7. 5” deep. It’s mostly matte black plastic, including a textured surface on top, although there’s also a metal speaker grille on the front, surrounding the digital display. The information is automatically sent over the first time a device is connected, so there’s no need to manually set it. Compared to iHome’s similar iDL100 , the unit isn’t as attractive, and the clock face is obviously smaller. On the back of the unit, there’s an integrated power cable—notably without the need for a large wall adapter—next to the USB port that can power your choice of devices, including any iPad. There’s also an audio in port, although no aux cable is included. Labeled Dock 1 and Dock 2—Lightning and 30-pin, respectively—they’re arranged with the more modern connector in front of the other.

Plus, the DC390 features a unique dual-docking system that lets you connect two iOS devices--any combination of iPad, iPhone and iPod--at the same time. s one of the sexier, albeit larger, iOS alarm clocks. In addition to the time and alarm, the dock provides an easy-to-read indicator for the audio output source. On the left side are the DC390's volume and track controls and audio source button, while the right side is home to the alarm and clock control and power button. The brightness control for the LCD and repeat alarm buttons are combined into one long strip that sits in front of the dock and is sandwiched between the two alarm buttons. The dock's clock is automatically set when you drop your iOS device into the dock connector. The alarms have to be set separately since there isn't an app for the dock, a disappointing drawback.
