Moxiware offers first elegant, upright Apple Pencil charging dock


Accessory maker Moxiware is the first out of the gate with a dock for the new Apple Pencil stylus that launched today alongside Apple’s larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro.

Apple Pencil, Apple’s first stylus launching today as a companion accessory for the new iPad Pro, charges using a built-in Lightning connector. But having the Pencil sticking out of the bottom of your iPad or lying flat on the floor or a desk with the included adapter isn’t ideal. Moxiware’s dock, however, allows the Pencil to stand upright while charging, not unlike a traditional pen stand.

As is the case with most early docks for new Apple products, this one doesn’t appear to include an integrated Lightning cable meaning customers will have to supply their own and snake it through the base.

It’s available in 4 models: aluminum and wood finishes in either a cone shape or a cylinder shape with an extra pen slot.


The Moxiware Apple Pencil charging dock is available to order now from the company’s website with shipping schedule to start in December. The dock costs $30 + $6.95 shipping worldwide.

The iPad Pro officially went on sale today online in 40 initial launch countries with the device scheduled for shipping to customers as early as Friday. Some Apple retail stores are also reporting having stock of the new device today, while accessories for the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard companion accessories are shipping in 5-7 days at the time of writing.

    At first glance, it looked like a fancy plunger.

    like those old feather pens. instead of dipping it in the ink you put it on the charger for a few seconds lol

    I don’t understand the design of this charger: where do you put the cap?

    hi everyone!

    i’m writing and sharing my experience with moxiware.

    i made an order online for the apple pencil magnet and the pencil holder. i paid for the shipping with tracking number. it was supposed to arrive 2-5 days before thanksgiving. alas, thanksgiving happened and no package arrived or even an email with the tracking number. i emailed them following up my order and they said that the dock wont be available till end december, so they’ll ship it by then. IT WAS NOT STATED IN THEIR WEBSITE DURING THAT TIME. so i told them to send the pencil magnet instead. i opted not to order with the tracking number. more than 8 days has passed and still nothing. i keep asking them for an update and all they give me is a short and cold reply:

    It should arrive soon.

    Thank you,

    i told them to send me a receipt of some sort to prove that it was sent already but they never did. i told them i have not received anything yet and i am so annoyed already. they said they will be sending it again. another week has passed and still, nothing. i emailed AGAIN for a follow up and they said “we will be sending again”.

    so is this some kind of delaying tactic of theirs? the customer service emails seem that they don’t care at all! i told them i lost interest already and just give me a refund. their reply: “it will take a week”.

    honestly right now, i don’t care if they don’t give me a refund or if i don’t receive the package at all. i just want everyone to know how they handle their customers. and i do hope MOXIWARE gets to read this.

    order at your own risk, everyone!

    i placed the order NOV 19 2015 and it’s already DEC 15 2015. all i paid for was a bunch of lies and lousy customer service.

    from their website:

    US and Canada:

    – Standard Shipping: From 7.95$ – No Tracking (5 – 8 Days)
    – UPS Shipping with Tracking: From 10.95$ across the US and Canada (2 – 5 Days)


    – International Air standard Shipping: Starts at 8.95$ – No Tracking (6 – 12 Days)
    – International Air standard Shipping with Tracking: from 15.95$ – (6 – 10 Days)
    – International Express with Tracking: Starts at 32.95$ (4 – 7 days)

    i don’t live in PLUTO FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!

    moxiware, martin, you are very disappointing. i hope everyone gets to read this.
