| | Question Regarding Seidio Cradle Charger for 8130 Pearl
Please Login to Remove!
So I just received it in the mail and put the 8130 on the cradle last night to charge... the cradle itself feels solid...great... looks to be well built...
I put my pearl in there and it immediately began to charge. perfect.
one thing I noticed though... after the pearl charged to 100%, the little "charging" icon that appears on the pearl's screen no longer showed.
Usually, the pearl will always show the charging "plug" icon when plugged in, whether it's at 100% charge or not.
Does the Seidio cradle charger trickle charge? or cut the power to the Pearl once it's reached 100%?
I took the pearl out of the cradle... and put it back in to see if the charging "plug" icon would show again... but it didn't. I tried it again, took it out, put it back into the cradle... still no charging icon. This was all while the Pearl was at 100% charge.
Seidio, is this normal? or should the charging "plug" icon always show if sitting in the cradle, regardless of battery charge level?
By the way, the contacts on the cradle and Pearl were cleaned - there's nothing blocking the contacts. And I am not using any skin/case on the Pearl that might get in the way of the contacts.
