    I remember there was a dock device that also allowed for a second battery to be charged. Who makes it? Anyone here have it? What do you think?

    These guys are talking about a $60 docking station that charges in landscape node, while charging a 2nd battery: http://forums.crackberry.com/f86/fin...attery-129748/

    maybe a bit of mis confusion to what I was saying.

    Mike was talking about the $60 docking station that charges in landscape mode and a spare battery.

    All I wanted to point out what I found that exact same docking station for cheaper.

    Keep in mind that some of these that can charge your extra battery can only do so with both the wall charger and the usb charger both being used. The $60 Amzer one will charge the Storm in the cradle and the extra battery just using the wall charger. That is why it's $60.

    Is your $25 one the same as the $60. My guess is that it is not.

    This one will charge the phone in the cradle WITH an extra battery charging behind....Yes! Simultaneously! For $15. So my guess is: yes, it is the same one.

    No name calling on my part; merely offering alternatives. No one here is qualified to determine the value of your money for you, or what you do with it.

    I could very well be wrong, but I don't think so. I think with that $15 charger, you need to have the usb cable connected AND the cradle plugged into a wall outlet. That works fine on your desk at the office, but not so well bedside where you are less likely to be able to connect the usb to anything. I know for certain that the $60 Amzer charges both just plugged into the wall.

    CM, those specs are ambiguous.

    "...and recharge a second battery for your BlackBerry all with one BlackBerry Storm Cradle Platform!" Doesn't mean you don't need two power sources.

    "...charges and syncs your device through your PC connection and the supplied AC charger. Additionally you can charge a second standard BlackBerry Storm battery at the same time in the battery charging bay on the back of the cradle." Suggests to me you need the USB plugged in too.

    We might be saying the same thing - I'm saying that this one does not do what the $60 Amzer does, which is charge both with just A/C power supplied from a wall outlet.

    I'm looking for a $25 one that will charge the Storm and a second battery plugged into the wall alone and I don't think I have seen it yet.

    I am not "saying" anything other than that I ordered one, and pointing folks towards the one I ordered so they can see for themselves. I will not argue the point of ambiguity without actually seeing the product. If you want to make the strong suggestion that it needs both connections (ac & usb) without knowing for sure, you could wind up doing a great disservice to others...
