    Does anyone know if the new USB Power Plug is available for sale yet?

    I may have to use an iPhone cube until it comes out?

    I don't know, but I still use the one that I had with my 7520! Great backup charger and USB cord all-in-one. I think that should still offer this design.

    jstoltz, that's a nice one by LG but it remains the same size as the original OEM one and I really wanted to reduce travel size.
    But, I may still consider it.
    Thanks!

    Thanks Pete, that is the charger that comes with the 9700 now.
    Was hoping for a smaller one!

    The benefit I get out of it is I don't have to carry a separate USB cable like I would if I used my BB OEM gear. My mistake, I thought that is what you were looking for.

    Guess what? The USB power plug is now available for individual sale!!!

    My question is this.......

    Does it do a quick charge like the good ol' wall chargers, or does it trickle charge?

    I like this design a lot. And though it is $15, which seems like a lot, I may get at least one or two. One for popping in my computer bag (this and the usb cable smaller than the wallcharger I have in there now). And as a second, or maybe the one for now, for my kitchen counter (away from food/beverages/heat/etc) where I leave the BB charging at night. Would be neater/cleaner.....good WAF factor there.....

    Also available from Amazon for about $10 + $3 shipping. Still to expensive (IMO) considering it doesn't include the USB cable. Hopefully prices will be reduced as supply increases and demand goes down.

    Thanks!

    Thanks to all of you for your help. You gave me some great different plugs to look at.
    I saw it here at CB and (being a loyal customer/member) decided to get it from here.
    Thanks.
    I imagine that it charges at full speed since it it charges at the same voltage as the OEM that came with the 9700.
