    How many here have a desktop charger(cradle) and how do you like it? I'm thinking about getting one because I like the way it looks charging in the cradle. What are some pros and cons to using one.

    I use one with my Tour to make the Tour into a bedside clock. I like it because it holds the Tour up where I can easily see the time. Charging through the dock contacts also saves wear on the microUSB connector.

    This is not possible since the phone must sits tight into the base.

    The charger is the best accessory I can imagine for my 9000. I have one at home for overnight abd one in the office if the need arises. Hard to beat the form and function.

    The main reason I opted to get the charging pod is to eliminate excess wear and tear on the mini USB port on the BlackBerry. I only need to plug it in when I am doing a backup or upgrading my OS, rather than plugging it in every night. The mini USB port on BlackBerry devices has been known to break.

    Love mine. I keep my Bold in the cradle when I am at my desk, and it's at 100% charge when I'm on the way home. I bring it home on the weekends. Paid < $10 for it on Amazon.

    They are so cheap, why don't you just get two? That's what I did -- one for my office, one for my bedroom.
