Default 8900 Dock/Stand Charger

Please Login to Remove!

I searched and didnt find anything on this stand, so I thought I would put it in here even though it should probably go into hardware. I just think it will get more hits from people specifically for 8900's.

Now I never knew thats what the metal pieces were for on the back of my 8900 so seeing this was a godsend, but thats not the best part, the best part is that its $6.09!!!. The only downfall is that there isnt a desktop connection, just charges, but I just hate fiddling and trying to find my ONE micro usb plug and charge it. I hope you guys find this useful.

I bought one of those as well and it works great as a desktop charger. I am going to get another for home as well and sit it on my nightstand. You can put your device in BEDSIDE MODE and use your 8900 as an alarm clock!

I paid like $10 for mine and that included S&H.

it wont work with a skin.
the contacts hit the contacts on the phone and conduct electricity...charging the battery.

You gotta have one. The bedside alarm clock mode is great. you can have BSE and charge it no problem too.
