    it does look el cheapo, but getting the 2 cords with it does make a pretty good deal, i'm just going to have to wait until I have a use for a second battery before its on my toy list

    I use the BB Dock and it works great. Too bad it won't work with the extended battery.

    Folks, the one at crackberry charges the phone and spare battery at the same time. It comes with a ac plug in and a usb cord. It is what you want for less than half the price. The only downside is that to charge the phone it has to be plugged into the usb on a computer.

    Very nice looking. When it comes to battery chargers I like to stay with OEM stuff. I really like the design of that charger though, very nice.

    I was just checking out some of these on ebay today and the cheapest I saw was around $7. I guess to take a chance buying cheap ones off ebay but what a bargain LOL

    Too rich for my blood! I like the fact that it charges a spare battery though.

    I wouldn't touch any of these that claim "rapid" charging.

    Wait for an OEM solution, IMHO.

    Does it charge the phone and the simultaneously battery via 1 USB plug? Do you have it/are you happy w/it?

    I ordered the one today from Seidio (I finally cancelled my order here at Crackberry's shop for the OEM, seems BB is running behind).

    The Seidio one will charge both the phone and the spare at the same time and I understand it will do so from USB as well. Plus, it's only $29.00 !!

    I couldn't find it either. Is it portrait or landscape? I have the BB Storm 'Pod charger' now and I really like the landscape. Of course looks come in second to function but, if I could get it all....

    I have not ordered, but this looks promising. May no be as pretty as the OEM, but its not bad looking also those who have skins or cases might have better luck with this docking station.


    ***EDIT***
    found cheaper!

    I would not trust non-oem products. Especially after reading this article

    Better off purchasing OEM spare battery charger and be safe.

    As far as this one goes (KiDiGi - BlackBerry Storm 9500 USB 2nd Battery Cradle), I got the following emails from the seller:
    ME: I was looking at "BlackBerry Storm 9500 USB 2nd Battery Cradle" and had a question. Does it charge both batteries (in the phone and in the cradle) and sync data from the phone all with one cable (USB)?
    SELLER: Dear Mr. Chris

    Thanks for your inquiry.

    I'd like to let you know with a usb cable it can only charge the phone and sync data at the same time.

    with an ac adapter, it can charge the phone and battery simultaneously, it can aslo sync data with a usb cable, three functions at the same time.

    If you have any questions, please contact with me.

    ME: Ok. That sounds fine but from the pictures I only see one port. Where do the ac and us cables connect when used at the same time?

    SELLER: Dear Mr. Chris

    Thanks for your prompt reply.

    Yes there is only one usb port at the back of the cradle, sorry for the mistake, because some of the cradle with two ports at the back.

    so it can only charges the phone and battery with the ac adapter at the same time, charges the phone and sync date with a usb cable simultaneously.
    Thanks & Regards


    Doesn't sound like what I'm looking for.

    I got my Seidio spare battery charger on Friday....no LED light when I plug it in to the wall (and yes, I have the switch set for A/C power). After fiddling with it and checking with other wall outlets, I finally got the gree LED light. I inserted my spare batter and the LED went to red. Thinking all was well, I left the house for two hours. When I returned, I was surprised to see the green LED. I put it in my Storm and after reboot, checked the battery status. 65% !!!!!

    I am not impressed. I see the CB store has the OEM one ready to ship, though. Guess I'll go back to it (got tired of the delayed ship dates, so went to Seidio. Bit mistake!)
