Supports iPad and iPhone XtremeMac Luna Voyager II Alarm iOS Dock

XtremeMac rolled out a new iPhone and iPad dock today that actually looks really cool. The new dock is called the Luna Voyager II and it is an alarm clock dock that will charge your gadgets and wake you up. It appears to work with any dockable iPhone, iPad, or iPod.

The device has a very thin and low profile and takes up little space up on your desk or nightstand. It has an FM tuner integrated and a dual alarm clock. It can also be used to play back your tunes from your iOS device. The stereo speakers have 4W – which should be plenty on your bedside table. The dock also has a battery back up to keep your alarm working if power goes out.

The dock can be controlled with the free Luna Voyager App on the App Store providing on-screen control of the radio and alarms. The thin profile of the device also makes it portable for getting you up when on the road and it will wake you to music from your device, a buzzer, or FM radio. The Voyager II is available now and sells for $69.99 (USD).
