General
 
1. I have an iPhone/iPad/iPod with Lightning Connector. Is the PocketDock FireWire compatible with Apple’s Lightning to 30-pin Adapter?
Apple’s Lightning to 30-pin Adapter does not support FireWire, thus the PocketDock FireWire is not supported.

If you are looking for line out audio together with USB connectivity, we'd suggest to use the ultra-compact SendStation PocketDock Line Out Mini USB together with Apple’s Lightning to 30-pin Adapter.

For compatibility of all other PocketDock models see respective support sections.
Sync & Charge
 
1. Can I sync my iPod/iPhone/iPad using the PocketDock’s FireWire port?
Only if it is one of the following models:
  • iPod mini
  • 3G iPod
  • 4G iPod incl. iPod photo and iPod color

All iPod models thereafter and all iPhones and iPads in general do not support sync over FireWire.
 
2. Can I charge my iPod/iPhone/iPad using the PocketDock’s FireWire port?
Yes, if it is one of the following models:
  • iPod mini
  • 1G iPod nano
  • 2G iPod nano
  • 3G iPod nano
  • 3G iPod
  • 4G iPod (incl. iPod photo and iPod color)
  • 5G iPod video
  • 6G iPod classic
  • 1G iPod touch
  • 2G iPhone

All iPod & iPhone models thereafter and iPads in general do not support charging through FireWire.
 
3. Can I use 4-pin FireWire connections (also known as i.Link™) for charging?
No, due to the fact that 4-pin FireWire 400 (1394a) doesn’t provide any power, it can be used to sync only. For FireWire charging the port on your computer or power supply needs to have either the typical 6-pin FireWire 400 (IEEE 1394a) connector or the 9-pin FireWire 800 (IEEE 1394b) connector.
 
4. Can I use a FireWire wall or car charger with the PocketDock?
Yes.
