question about standalone chargers for Bold 9900
I've previously posted on here about the shocking battery life of my Bold 9000, and I know that many of you share my pain. - 422. (+ /2( f hours if on 2G mode and around 4 hours if on 3G, in both cases my use is only browsing and .xls .pdf documents, nothing power-hungry like GPS (which I only now use when plugged in to an in-car charger.
On speaking to my carrier (T-Mobile/EE, UK) they have offered to send me, FOC, a replacement battery to see if that assists my problem, and I've been told to recycle or keep the original.
Anyway, I now have two JM1 batteries. I would like a way to charge them without waking up at 2am to change the batteries over.
I see a standalone charger listed on this website at BlackBerry J-Series Extra Battery Charger Bundle for Bold 9930, Bold 9900, Bold 9790, Curve 9380, Torch 9850, Torch 9860 | BlackBerry Battery
Does this product allow a battery to be charged without a phone being anywhere near? This is not fully clear to me.
Secondly is it possible to purchase just the standalone charger without battery/wires?
With two fully charged batteries, things like family days out appear possible once more
Final question - does a torch typically give same or better/worse standby time?

The "BlackBerry J-Series Extra Battery Charger Bundle for Bold 9900" will be able to charge the extra battery while at same time charge your phone.
I was able to pick it up at the Blackberry shop in San Jose, Very useful product.
Does it sound like it could be a faulty unit?

You could have bought the OEM BlackBerry desk top charger for £12 on Amazon. I have one and does the job. And Im sure you can buy something like this, without the battery
Blackberry Battery Charger Bundle with J-series Y-Cable: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics
The beauty of this is that it can charge the phone and spare battery together or independently. Spare battery goes into the charger, connected to the Y cable. other end of the Y cable goes into your phone

I have used an Anker multi-purpose universal charger for some time ($10 on Amazon). Why I like it is because it will charge just about any battery, including all my cell phones, a mi-fi, and even my digital camera battery.

Battery has to be in the phone. Sounds like you need the one I posted link to, which is £18.47, with a battery.
this is a link for stand alone desk top charger
or there is this. A stand alone battery charger £6.99
A link for the Y cable £6.99
