Performance and design

This Lightning dock looks very stylish. It’s available in two designs, one with a silver top and one with a black top. It has a stand for positioning your phone on top so you can look at it easily.

The MoreAudio Nox automatically sets the correct time via your Apple device, so it’s an accurate alarm clock that will change for daylight saving times.

The speaker has an air chamber and bass port to provide a good level of bass. The FM radio is decent, but the real benefit of this device is being able to stream music from your phone via Bluetooth or from an MP3 player using the aux-in cable.

The Nox works well as an alarm clock with the option of setting two different alarms, so you could use on for weekdays and a later one for weekends so you can have a lie-in. The LED display can be dimmed and completely turned off at night so it won’t disturb you.

This product is backed by an 18-month warranty, and MoreAudio also have a customer helpline in the UK if anything doesn’t work the way it’s supposed to.
