    I recently got the multimedia station for my Droid X and I was wondering if I were to leave it on the multimedia station at night while I am sleeping, if it would have any effects on the performance of the battery or anything else like that, thanks to anyone who leaves a helpful post.

    I use it and it all depends on how low you keep the brightness and if there is music all night and what not. Just keep the brightness down and use a sleep timer for music and you should be fine.

    Thats not true for me. When my phone is in the dock it goes into media mode and it stays awake at a low brightness. I suppose I could always be mistaken Though. I am asleep before I know if it turns off or not.

    This is may be a stupid questions, but is the sole purpose for the multimedia station is to prop your X up to watch videos or can it be used to charge your phone with it also? I'm thinking about buying one.:)

    Yeah amazon is waaaay better than buying from verizon. Much much cheaper. You can also get extra batteries for 5 bucks each. Verizon charges 40.

    Question: If I keep the phone docked all night after it has charged already because I want to use it as a clock will that mess up the battery or over charge the battery in any way? I read some of the reviews and it seems like some use it at night to re-charge the battery and also as a clock and alarm.

    Does it come by UPS? Did you need to sign for it? I think I may have it delivered here at work since no one is home to sign for it during the day.

    I got my multimedia station yesterday and I love it. Is it ok to leave my phone in the docking station over night while I sleep even if its at 100 % battery life? I want to use it as a clock but dont want to ruin my battery. I love watching videos using the station. :)
