The Akasa however is a different beast with its glossy black sides and silver grey finish on top.

Conclusions Based on the test data, the Akasa dock is adequate but not blisteringly fast. A blue LED highlights the bottom edge of the dock when it is powered on along with matching dock and power indicator lights on top.
