If you were one of the many backers of the Elevation Dock for the iPhone, you may be acutely aware of its impending obsolescence due to Apple’s recent product line refresh. Fear not, with a little 3D printed part, you can convert your beloved billet paper weight back into a functional lightning connector equipped premium charging station as demonstrated by maker, conference photographer, and serial entrepreneur, James Duncan Davidson. The hack won’t, unfortunately, support the audio out hardware, but that’s a price to pay for a rather clean retrofit. [Thanks, Jake!]
