    External Battery Charger

    Hi, all.

    I bought 2 back-up batteries: a 2nd standard size battery and the bulky extended life battery.

    Now I really need a couple of external battery chargers so I can keep the back-ups charged and ready to go. Anybody seen these yet?

    I do have a Seidio Multi-Function Charger, but they don't yet have model specific part for the Thunderbolt.

    I've also seen some of the super cheap things on eBay, oftentimes budled with 2 or 3 batteries for like $12. Obviously total junk. Since the batteries are 1500 mAh, I think most (if not all) of these are actually for the Sprint EVO 4G and won't even fit, even if I wanted to buy junk, which I don't.

    Thanks, Robrecht

    The multimedia dock can charge both types of batteries if you were thinking about picking one up.

    Yes, the Multimedia dock can charge your phone and a spare battery at the same time, and it even accommodates your extended battery as well as the regular size. It is not cheap at $60, but it could be worth it for your needs.

    I would not advise buying anything battery-related for this phone from ebay that is not name brand. That would be a waste and might even mess up the phone.

    Wait the multimedia dock can charge extra batteries and the bolt at the same time?

    It can charge both the phone (with a battery inserted) and 1 spare battery at the same time (2 slots total). I do not know which slot accommodates the extended battery, I just know that it is compatible with it, whether it only fits in the main or spare slot I do not know, it could be both or only one of them.

    I hear ya. If the Verizon store had them in stock or available for order, I would have bought one with the 25% discount in a moment of weakness. I could understand the price if the so-called media dock had an HDMI port & cable, but $60 is ridiculous, even $45 (25% off). In the end, 'though, it really doesn't suit my needs because:

    1) I want to charge 2 back-up batteries at the same time.

    2) Dock and AC cord is a bit of a pain to travel with or set up in an all-day meeting, etc.

    3) I also want external chargers to be able to be powered by USB ports on an external laptop battery/charger. This can be done in a briefcase or suitcase when I'm travelling.

    Seidio is now shipping a Thunderbolt version of one of their larger 2-piece multi-chargers for $30:
    http://www.seidioonline.com/product-p/bd3-bcsi3htmec-bk.htm

    If you already have one from an older phone, you can order just the ThunderBolt version of the charging plate with a microUSB cable for $13:
    http://www.seidioonline.com/product-p/bd2-bcscbu-htmec.htm

    Seidio's shipping is on the high side, so consider ordering additional accessories at the same time. Note also they have a -15% promotion on their home page.

    For the really cheap (and daring) you can now get the compact chargers without the ultraworthless batteries for $4.98 and free shipping from city_out or others for slightly more. I've used one of these before, but can't really vouch for their quality.
    Desktop Dock Battery Charger For HTC my touch 4G/Merge - eBay (item 320670446018 end time Apr-11-11 19:55:52 PDT)

    There's a US reseller of these who jacks up the price on the same charger, with one of the ultra-worthless batteries for $25 with free shipping:
