    I've been searching all over for a good looking, inexpensive USB-C dock. I've tried two, but they were both crap. The first one seemed to charge to the KEY2, but it did not actually charge it. The second one wasn't even recognized by my KEY2. I really wish BB would sell a dock, just like they used to for e.g. the Passport. What docks are you guys using that actually do work with the KEY2 (and are good-looking, but inexpensive)?

    They were cheap ones from a local store here, not sure what brands they were.

    I bought this one to charge kids tablet

    USB C Charger Dock Station, AKwor Charging Desktop for Samsung Galaxy S8, Note8, LG G5 G6 V20, HTC 10, Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, Google Pixel, Motorola Moto Z Play Force Droid, OnePlus 5, BLU Vivo 5 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075FP1VL9...UvbUpU13303268

    Works as expected. It says it would work with a note 8 so a keytwo should be fine.

    Thanks, but I'd rather get a suggestion from someone who actually tested it with a KEY2, just to be sure

    It works with the Key2 LE if that helps. This is not a quick charger though.

    I sure miss the charging contacts on the old blackberrys. The new docks are just too much of a pain to get the phone in and out.

    Im kinda surprised that they didn't put wireless charging in the Key2 considering how much they're charging. Really hope BlackBerry can get things right on the Key3. The good thing is that the Key3 (if it actually happens) will definitely be on Android 9.0 so theyll have to ditch the idiotic permanent capacitive nav buttons.

    It's arrived and it works! Thanks for your recommendation.

    Would still prefer a proper Blackberry one though...

    I have this exact dock from Amazon since launch of K2. No rapid charging, but works flawlessly! Would highly recommend. Cheers,

    Oh, you actually found one of the non-working ones (as mentioned in the OP). At least for me that one didn't work, it didn't charge my KEY2 at all.

    Does key2 recognize it like a charger or really like dock? Try to put settings/display/screensaver- start automatically while docked and check if screensaver will really start (after screen shutsdown by itself(not by you pressing power button)), when you dock it. ? Can u please?
