There are so many cool docks that fail to account for people having their iPad in a case other than the Smart Cover, and so they fail...is this one any different? (I can't quite tell)

Judging from the pics at the link, it looks like the charging cord pops up for you to manually plug the device in and then settles into a flexible groove. It might work without having to remove the case. I have that problem with my iPhone and some of my docks. I don't want to remove the case every time I charge. I have a radio dock that works with a case and wish they were all like that.
