    hi folks
    how does the storm 2 charging pod work?

    does the pod plug into the usb port or does it connect to the metal on the case?
    cheers

    ^^^ what he said. It isn't a charger on it's own. You need to either plug the wall charger or the PC's USB cable in the back to make it a charger.

    A good buy in my opinion though, nice quality solid build.

    You mean that this is not some independent pod that has its own nuclear power source?

    No, it works for the rest of the world, but for Americans you need to insert a 'twinkie' every hour for it to keep charging!

    Just want to make sure...it's powered with the exact same OEM charger or USB cable? Seems like every time I get anything new, the plugs aren't compatible.

    That's correct use the OEM data cable and charger to.

    That would be a great line for more case manufacturers to get into - especially the more popular ones like Otterbox. In fact, that's the reason I'm a little hesitant about getting one or the other...because I just know I wouldn't want to take the time to take it out of the holster to put in in the cradle.

    I know it took a while for Seido to release the larger cradle for the original Storm. I wonder if that one would work with the Storm2 in a case?

    So I assume you have "pull" it out of the cradle instead of just picking it up like the Tour?
