For a great charger that keeps your device in an upright position, try the iLoveHandles Pinhead dock.
This little guy is a white body with a 30-pin connector head that can connect to any of the latest idevices including iPods, iPhones and more. The device you attach becomes the head, giving you an idea of what your beloved phone or MP3 player would look like if it were a miniature person. With small devices such as the iPod Shuffle, the head is proportionate to the body, but with most devices the head is way to large, adding a comedic effect to the Pinhead.
The iLoveHandles Pinhead dock charges your gadgets and balances with his big feet.
