Best Apple iPad 2 docks

From the Logic3 i-Station Podium to the Bush 20W speaker dock, T3 unveils the best Apple iPad docks of 2011

Owners of the Apple iPad 2 are fully aware of the power-draining hell the device goes through when used in the office and the daily commute to and from work. It's no wonder, then, that a number of docking stations have been created to provide these over-used devices with a platform to sit back and regain their energy. Following T3's iPad docks group test, here are some of the best Apple iPad 2 docks 2011 has produced so far...
