If you are one of these users or perhaps use a graphics tablet, then you know the problem: the pen can be misplaced or rolled away quickly. To prevent this from happening, there are different holders and one or the other Apple Pencil stand. Instead of putting down the pen, it is put down in it; Depending on the version, it can also be loaded directly into the holder.

    The Apple Pencil stand from SAMDI is just a piece of wood, a metal plate and two screws. And for that the boys want 12 euros - oh no!
    So I have to lay my own Lightning cable in it, plug in the Lightning adapter (female-female) - and then buy a power adapter with which I can charge the Apple Pencil.
    Everything not explained and deliberately not gone into the details. This is not good.

      Hi Sandro! Thanks for your comment. With most docks (including the iPhone docks) you have to buy the cable separately. They assume that you are using the accessories supplied. So the switch that comes with the Pencil is usually lying around in the corner anyway. You can build them into the dock. And a Lightning cable doesn't come with the Apple Pencil, but I think the costs are manageable. But maybe we will note it in the future so that it is clear to the reader what else is needed. Best wishes! Jens

      Hello Sandro,
      on the Amazon product page it says (in not entirely perfect German, admittedly): "Charging cable is not included in the price and you have to set it up yourself." - so the details were dealt with.
      That this was not stated in the article itself, okay, that can be criticized. However, viewing the final product page before buying is actually the norm, isn't it? Therefore, not all details have to be given here, down to the smallest detail. In addition, the "Amazon Box", which incorporates the product descriptions from Amazon into the article, is increasingly being used in the newer articles. I haven't used it on this one yet. The lack of one or the other information can happen;)
      Best regards
