a desktop dock/charger thread...
So that silly r2-d2 themed droid 2 comes with a desktop dock...but the DI still has nothing in that area!? WTF!?
I know there are some desktop docks out there, but I want one from the manufacturer that turns it into a great desktop piece while it's charging at the same time...just like ever other droid has. Freakin shame.
Been using this one for about 5 months....
Amazon.com: USB Sync & Charge Cradle (w/ 2nd battery support) for HTC Droid Incredible (w/ OrionGadgets NeckStrap): Cell Phones & Accessories
Works fine with a few caveats (as long as you are using stock battery or
equivalent. If using extended battery, the phone will not slide down in the holder all
Caveats are this:
- There is a flashing LED at the back right corner of it that some may find annoying.
- I found that if I used the phone while plugged in with the AC adapter from Orion, the phone was very sluggish. So I substituted the one that came inthe box with the phone, and all is well.
And yes, I've used the 2nd battery charger also (with a Seidio battery)
and it worked fine.
