Win a ReaderDock charging dock with speakers for Kindle Fire & Nook!

For Christmas last year, my daughter got a Kindle Fire.  I was a little hesitant about getting her one but she is so into reading, music and email that I figured it would be the perfect gift.  She loved it and is rarely without it these days.  Unfortunately, it has yet to find a *home* in her room.  I find it on the floor, the bookcase, the toy box and wherever else she happens to be lying around while using it.  When I was offered the chance to review the new ReaderDock, I thought it would make a great functional storage space for her Kindle.  If you are not familiar with the ReaderDock, here is some information about them from their website:

ReaderDock

 ReaderDock is the first charging dock with speakers designed specifically for the Kindle Fire and the Barnes & Noble NOOK Color & Tablet.  Whether you use your e-reader for reading, playing apps, listening to music, or watching videos, ReaderDock will make you love your e-reader even more.

ReaderDock has 2 different units, one for the Kindle Fire and a different one for the Nook.  They are a combination charging station, speakers, and multi-angle viewing station.  Here are a few of the basic specs you should know about this unit:

  1. The FireStation is powered with the USB cable and power adapter included with the Kindle Fire. You can get an extension cord for it if desired.
  2. When connected to a computer via a USB cable, files can be transferred to and from the Fire even while docked.
  3. Features built-in, amplified, stereo speakers with volume control.
  4. Includes a standard 3.5mm jack that can be used to output audio from the Kindle Fire to headphones or larger audio systems.
  5. Rotate the cradle left or right, or up and down, to position the Kindle in the best way that matches the application you are using. (Kindle can be used horizontally or vertically, depending on application needs)

This is an incredibly simple unit to use and there is absolutely no assembly required which is good for those of us who dislike assembling electronics!  Simply use your Kindle Fire’s USB cord to connect the ReaderDock to the wall.  The Kindle then slides very easily into the docking station and begins charging.  I love that this is a secure fit…there are grooves that the Kindle slides into that hold it snuggly so it doesn’t fall out if bumped.  The ReaderDock adjusts to a whole range of angles so you are not limited with regards to viewing angle.

Another thing I really appreciate with this unit is that you can use it with or without headphones.  There are times that I just don’t want to listen to my daughter’s music but she wants to be with the family while she plays a game or listens to music.  The headphone feature lets her listen without bugging me!

The one thing I really love about this and am seriously considering borrowing her Kindle and ReaderDock for is that it is perfect for using a cookbook in the kitchen!  I am not a neat cook and tend to spill things on counters frequently.  The ReaderDock keeps the Kindle off the counter while allowing me to look at a recipe from a website or a downloaded cookbook.  If you enjoy using your Kindle as a cookbook, the ReaderDock will come in very handy!

Overall, I am very impressed with the ReaderDock.  It provides a convenient and secure storage place for my daughter’s Kindle and is extremely portable for when I want to borrow it to use in the kitchen for a cookbook holder!  Use the code “WEB5″ at checkout to save $5.

One of my lucky readers will win their very own ReaderDock!

  16. Ellen, when I retweet this giveaway, it says win fruition bars instead of a Readerdock. I’ve been changing it, but I thought you might want to know in case it is affecting the number of entries.
