Default Bluetooth Headset question

Please Login to Remove!

I just bought a Motorola H700 headset, and so far everything is great.

I do, however, have a question.

I tend to use this device when driving, I would say 99% of the time I use it is while I am on the road.

I have been looking for a car charger for this thing so I could charge it in my phone, but I could find no such item.

I called Motorola earlier today and the gentleman told me the only option I had was to buy some car kit device. This item would run me $1100.

That is just not a reasonable price to be paying for a device like this, at least not to me.

Is the customer service rep correct. Is my only option this 1100 dollar gadget.

Clearly they have to recognize that people use these things and it would be convienent to charge it in the car.......

Does it use a mini-usb port for Charging? If so you can probably get a Moto Car Charger for it just don't leave it on too long

Unless I'm missing something you can buy car chargers anywhere for between $3 and $25.

I've used car chargers on the HS820, the HS850, and the H700. They stop charging on their own when they're charged. Never had any issues (except losing the headsets!)

Ok, would you please kindly direct me in the right direction as to where I would be able to find one of these car chargers.

I did a google search and had no luck what so ever.

You can get this one...a little pricey at $29.99 but any car charger with the mini usb tip should work. It'll also charge your BB.

BlackBerry Accessories Store - Product Detail

There are also many on eBay. Any Blackberry car charger will work.

Yes. Heck, half the time you can buy a case or something on eBay and they seller throws in a car charger for free. They are all over the place.
