Last week on the 12th December 2012, eneloop announced two new limited-edition ‘eneloop tones’ rechargeable battery packs. The eneloop uomo for men in enigmatic shades of purple, grey, black and white; and eneloop rouge for women in scintillating hues of pink.

When I bought the Elevation Dock, it was shipped with iPhone 30-pin connector, because the Kickstarter project was planned before the new Apple Lightning Connector was announced. Elevation Lab has been hard at work since then to manufacture the Lightning adapter for the Elevation Dock.
Finally on the 8th November 2012, the Lightning adapter is production ready! The Lightning adapter cost US$15 (S$18.30) and shipping cost US$7.22 (S$8.80), paid a total of US$22.22 (S$27.10) for it. This bring the total cost of the Elevation Dock to S$148. At that price, it is very expensive for a dock, but the quality is awesome and it is Made in the US product. The dock is future proof as the adapter is exchangeable as long as Elevation Lab is able to produce it.
