    I've been waiting on upgrading to the Droid 3 because a holster only was not available. Personally do not like the covers.

    I found one out now on letstalk.com:

    Droid 3 Swivel Holster

    Also, found the code LTSAVE25 for 25% off accessories good till the end of the month. Found it at:

    I got the two holsters and am very pleased with them, great quality, sturdy and have that nice finish like the original one on the D1 had from Motorola. A perfect product. Thanks for the link!

    Also, the second one I use as a car mount. Clip it to the sun visor and it works perfect. I have a 12v that comes out by my rear view mirror so the power cord and phone are kept up high and out of my view. (This is far better than my last Droid, where I used a dash mounted clip - it blocked the AC controls for the driver's side.) Here is the picture of it, it is not slick but it is functional and keeps my dash from being cluttered or from the Droid getting in the way of cold air coming out.

    Good to hear it is holding up under use. It looks like the clip itself rides low. When clipped on your belt, does it act like a medieval torture device when youre sitting?

    That visor setup is way trick. What charger is that?

    No, it doesn't pinch or anything, at least on me body type.

    The charger is a dual USB receiver that I picked up at WalMart. I just use a USB to Droid power cable and it provides power just fine. The second opening is in case I have a power hungry passenger...

    The closest I see is this one. Is that it? Looks like all the others plug directly into the power socket.

    Oh, I misunderstood your question. What I did was buy a female, 12v cigarette lighter type socket and have it hard wired to the battery. The power cord runs up the a-pillar and up to the rear-view mirror area. I then have the 2-USB port plug inserted into that. The socket I got was something like $5 from Pep-Boys. It works great in that I can use it for the phone and a NAV if I want to use a NAV on a long trip.

    If you hard-wired the 12v power outlet, I hope it had an in-line fuse.

    I installed several 12v power outlets in my Honda Element, one specifically for the micro-USB power cord.

    It does, I had my guy at the garage do it. It is a company car, so the company mechanics take care of it. I tend to not keep cars very long so I don't put a lot of my coin into them. Having the power outlet up there should be in every car though, it is very handy to keep the phone up that high.

    charger-holster, charger-holster :blink:

    Progress report on the Lets Talk holster:
    When I got it, my first impression was "what a cheap piece of sh1t". Well, Ive had it for 3 weeks now and Im happy to eat my words (ar ar) Its still in one piece. I first thought the plastic was too soft and the clip looked lame. But that actually is a good thing here, it flexes when others snap off. The swivel is a little loose, it wont 'lock' in place at any point as it turns, but its not like a piece of licorice either. I put it on my belt upside down so the clip tab points down and wont jab me in the gut. Right side/right hand, I needed some practice to be able to slap the phone into it one handed; the bottom end has to go in just right, its an in and down maneuver. Or you can do a cross draw -right side/left hand. If its stood up to 3 weeks on my belt, its gotta be decent.

    All in all, a pretty good deal for $12.99 and free shipping.

    I really liked the naked holster clip, it was great. Sadly, I dropped the darn phone 5 times in three weeks and I had the Droid 1 in the same type of holster for nearly 2 years and only dropped it once. So, off to BJ's Wholesale Club and I bought a case and clip that they sell from Motorola. I got the car dock as well - both were like $52. The car dock is actually really nice and sits up above the tint line so nobody sees it on the windshield. I use the same power supply - so that wasn't a total waste. Even though I have insurance on the phone, I didn't see tempting fate.

    What I found with the naked clip was that my t-shirt would get caught and I'd not realize it. It would then fling out when I moved or something and then the phone would fly. Oh well, it is still a great clip but apparently there is something slightly different than how the Droid 1's clip case was made.

    It's funny. I started this thread and got the holster in anticipation of getting the Droid 3. Never did and should be getting the Droid 4 soon. Now, got to find a holster for that. :blink:

    If anyone want's one of these, still have mine unused.
