Satechi makes some of the nicest docks and stands we’ve seen, and the company’s updated Satechi R1 is no exception. This updated stand quickly elevates your iPad — or really just about any other mobile device — to provide an optimal viewing experience whether at your desk, living room table, or in your kitchen.
Made from solid aluminum, the R1 includes rubber grips so it won’t scratch your iPad, but it’s also wide enough to be compatible with most cases, and can be used to hold your iPad in either portrait or landscape orientations. The two hinges let you fold the R1 flat so you can keep it in your bag or even your coat pocket, and also allow you to adjust the stand to just about any angle, whether you’re watching a video or using a Bluetooth keyboard for typing. It’s one of the most versatile and elegant iPad stands we’ve seen, and it’s even available in four iPad-matching colors, so it fits right in with the iPad’s aesthetic.
