    Hey Everyone,

    I was surfing the net and I stumbled on to a site called Newegg(One I visit a lot). I found that the 83xx Desktop Charging Pod is only $7.99 with Free Shipping(4-7 Business days).. Not a bad deal if you ask me... I saw a thread a couple weeks ago that Newegg had these for $8.99 with the free shipping option...Here is a link to the site...

    Nice find. I highly recommend these to everyone. It saves a lot of wear and tear on your usb port.

    Zero, let me know if you see one for the 9630 Tour.

    $7.49 from Amazon that's for pod and shipping total.

    Curve folks should check out the accessory packages available from Amazon.com. Tour accessories available, as well as many other devices.

    No problem, info is good, everyone has different finds.

    I started beating even some of the eBay prices at Amazon. Got a nice 8 gig class 6 SDHC card for under $14 on a special. Got the pod less than $6 on a special. A 2-pack of replacement trackballs for less than $9. All kinds of deals, I use the Amazon app, shop from my Curve.

    Your charger plugs into the pod, and your BB has charging contacts on the lower back of it. These allow you to charge without using the Mini-USB port.

    Does anyone know if this works with a case on the phone? My seidio case has an opening in the back to expose the battery door button/charging contacts (always wondered what those were lol) but I dont know if the contacts on the pod extend enough to get past the case.

    Has anyone been able to answer this yet? I just ordered a few Seidio cases and would like to pick up a desktop charger for myself also. I know Seidio has a charger for a situation like this, but if i can save a lil bit of pocket change, I will.

    From the reviews I've read you have to take off the case, in order for the cradle to make contact with the rear tabs to charge the phone.

    Thank you for this information. I just ordered mine off Amazon.com for under $6! I've been worried about the location of the charging port, now I don't have to be!

    Thanks for the Amazon link. For less than the suggested price of the item on Newegg, I received the charge pod and a 2GB micro SD. Works for me.
