I have a DCM278 and a DC315 and when an Iphone or an Ipod Touch is in a silicone pouch there there is no contact between them.
I have to remove the pouch each time.

Near my bed I have a similar product from Sony and the connector is little bit longer and accomodate the iphone in a pouch.

I find that this a real problem, is there any solution, a sort of adaptator with a female connector and a longer male at the other side ?
