LaunchPort is the revolutionary charging and mounting system that forever changes how you can use your iPad. The LaunchPort system consists of a Sleeve and any number of Stations.


A Sleeve is a protective case that fits onto your iPad. A Station is the mount and charging unit that connects to and holds a Sleeve. There are two types of Stations, one for a desk or table as featured on this page and one for the wall.The LaunchPort BaseStation allows you to mount your iPad at the ideal angle for typing and tapping. Rotate your iPad through 360 degrees while mounted and charging and use provided detents for alignment to portrait and landscape orientations.

LaunchPort powers iPad via inductive charging. This means that as soon as a Sleeve is mounted to a Station charging begins - without wires, cables or conductive elements. Magnets are used to mount and 'fix' your iPad-in-Sleeve to a Station. Because magnets are inside the Sleeve, you can also mount it to any metallic surface.The tabletop BaseStation only uses some of the magnets in the LaunchPort system, making it easier to grab and go

Silver aluminium and black gloss finishes (phone to order black BaseStation) make the BaseStation right at home with all of your Apple gear.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I install a LaunchPort system? The LaunchPort BaseStation and Sleeve require no installation. Simply slip a Sleeve onto an iPad and plug your BaseStation into a wall outlet. (Note: Installation is required for the LaunchPort WallStation). 

Does LaunchPort get warm? Most electronic devices emit some degree of heat.  LaunchPort is an inductive charging system meaning that it transmits energy through the air between the charging Station and the Sleeve. Because of this, some heat is generated during this process on the surface of the inductive circuit on both the Sleeve and the Station. It is normal and safe for the LaunchPort system to generate heat.  The LaunchPort system's heat will never damage your iPad.  Heat may be higher during peak charging scenarios.  As soon as the Sleeve is removed from the Station, the heat will dissipate rapidly- on both the Sleeve and the Station. LaunchPort is designed to operate well within UL Consumer Electronics heat requirements. Additionally, the LaunchPort system is Apple MFi, FCC and CE certified.

How does LaunchPort charge my iPad? The LaunchPort system uses the magic of inductive charging technology to charge your iPad. Induction charging works by using magnetism to transmit power between two electrical coils or transformers. If you have an electric toothbrush with a charging dock containing no conductive elements, you are already using inductive charging technology in your home. Because there are no conductive connections, LaunchPort safely delivers over 2.4 amps of power over the air. The LaunchPort inductive circuit is over 85% efficient, keeping with our commitment to maintain a low energy footprint. Also, when your iPad is not presently connected to the Station, the station falls asleep and operates below 1 watt of power, making it compliant with European low energy standards

Does LaunchPort charge my iPad in the same amount of time as my Apple Power Adapter? The LaunchPort system provides the same amount of power as the Apple Power Adapter. It takes about 4 hours to charge a depleted iPad fully from 0% to 100%. This means that, in most circumstances, charging times are identical to the Apple Power Adapter. If you are charging iPad (3rd generation) using a LaunchPort system and have the retina display on at full brightness while charging, you may notice an increase in charge time. iPad is very smart and asks for the optimal amount of power to maximising its own re-charge time

Will my iPad’s battery wear down faster while connected to a LaunchPort system? Because iPad determines its own consumption of power, there is no difference between charging an iPad on a LaunchPort system or using an Apple iPad power supply. iPad is designed to maximise its battery's lifespan and charge cycles.

How does the USB port work on my Sleeve? The USB port on the LaunchPort Sleeve (AP.2 Sleeve and some AP.3 Sleeves) can be plugged into any supported iPad charger to charge your iPad using a mini-USB - USB cable. The iPad 10 Watt power adapter that came with your iPad is recommended for best compatibility, although there are many 10 Watt USB power adapters that may work as well. If your iPad is charging on a Station, you cannot simultaneously connect the USB cable and charge your iPad. Conversely, if you are charging via the USB cable, you cannot simultaneously charge on a Station. If your Sleeve is mounted to a station, you cannot simultaneously use the USB port to sync to a computer. Remove the Sleeve from the Station and plug in the USB cable into the computer and your Sleeve to begin syncing.

How do I clean my LaunchPort products? Dampen a microfiber cloth with a small amount of water and wiping the desired area on the device. This method may be used for all LaunchPort products. Cleaning your products in this way will ensure that the finish of the products will last and that the electronics inside will not be affected.

Will LaunchPort work with the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3? Yes: iPad mini 3 works with the AM.2 Sleeve. iPad Air 2 works with AP.5 Sleeve with accompanying fit pads.
