Default Cradle/charger for an extra battery available yet?

Please Login to Remove!

my 8800 is getting here tomorrow or Wednesday and I am hoping to buy an extra battery and possibly a charger (for just the battery). Is this possible? I don't like just trying to charge each one in the phone because it is a hassle...

Yes, but for a price and you'll need to wait until 6/7/07:

Wow! That's one hell of a price! Really, as long as I just have a separate little battery charger so I don't have to switch them in and out of the phone while trying to charge I will be happy. Is there anything like that. I don't worry about the cradle since Blackberries tend to have the charging port on the side, making cradles difficult anyways, so it isn't a big deal for me to have it that way.

FWIW, I just got my 8830 yesterday. I have the RIM / OEM battery only charger that I picked up for my 8703 battery. This charger charged my 8830 battery just fine.

Very good to know. I think I will pick up one of those along with a battery today or tomorrow if possible. Thanks...
