    I am just about to order the blackberry bold desktop charging pod but I just wanted to ask how it charges it because it sits in the pod but the charging port is on the top left of the phone?

    It charges throw the two silver contacts on each side of the phone near the bottom, they make contact with a couple pins in the charging pod.

    Well worth the money in my opinion and use the pods all the time.

    Love mine, but it does make it tougher to use a case, as you have to remove them to use the charging pod.

    Is there a charging pod you can buy that is slighty larger than the normal ones so you don't have to take off your skin?

    There is a pod that actually has a mini USB port on the side. Not so sure I like the design, but it's out there.

    There's only one flavour of the Bold charging cradle. And even if there were, I think that most skins/cases cover up the charging contacts which makes charging via cradle a non starter.

    Oh sweet. Always wondered what they where for.

    Great stuff.
