    I see that I can get a charging dock for my Bold.

    How does the device get its power? From the bottom?

    yes by the metal on the back of the device. prongs on the charger make contact with them. It saves wear and tear on your usb port. However, most don't work with skins on them.

    I saw something like this on tv the other day. Not quite sure how it works though, the one I saw didn't look like it had any metal prongs. They just laid it down on the charger. Also had an iTouch on it.

    It's really not that big an issue to pull a skin, though.

    That is supposed to be a wireless charging pad. I hear mixed reviews on them.

    The OEM charging pod for the bold charges with the contacts on the sides... they are down toward the bottom of the phone.

    The powermat setup looks silly to me. I checked it out at best buy. Having the added bulk on the phone all the time would be silly. The powermat door for the bold wraps around the sides at the bottom to make contact with the charging contacts on the bold.

    I bought 2 OEM charging pods (home/work) from Amazon. Really good price and good quality. Very happy with the product.
