Easily modified to fit a case – 8-Pin Lightning Data Sync / Charging Docking Station for iPhone 5 - Black Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Inexpensive Easily modified to fit a case Works
Cons:
Nothing
Other:
I've attached pictures on how to make this work with a case, essentially the plug doesn't stick out far enough so by popping the case open (from the bottom) and shaving off a little bit of the upper support (I used a sharp chisel) you can push the plug up higher out of the dock. You also need to SLIGHTLY widen the opening for the dock connector mount to fit through (its the little white part at the bottom of the connector)
Bottomline:
Buy it, its cheap and works with a thin case. I don't think it would work with an otter box but with a bumper or thinner case it works great.
