I have had the privilege to review yet another Seidio Product - RIM BLACKBERRY USB DESKTOP CRADLE and the TRAVEL CHARGER KIT. I have seen another review of the product and was quit excited to receive this product. Unfortunately my daughter has my digital camera where she is attending Soccer camp at the University of Michigan, so I will post pics later this week when I get my camera back. (unless I can find one here at work)
First off the design is once again brilliant and unique. I love the feel of this thing, plastic yet rubbery – just feels good.
There are 2 modes of operation - PC Charge and Wall Charge. I charge my phone on my night stand so I just took my OEM Wall charger and plugged into back of Base, flipped the switch to charger and charged away. I was VERY HAPPY TO SEE THAT THIS WILL ACCOMMODATE THE 7100i (I am sure all 7100’s as well) SKIN MADE BY SEIDIO (Which BTW the JET BLACK SKIN COMES OUT THIS WEEK – YES!!!!). It is snug with the skin on, however it is not like your fighting it to get in and out. To charge from my Laptop I simply plugged in the provided USB Cord to my laptop and then to the charger and flipped the switch to USB and now it charges and syncs!
This charger is VERY pleasing to the eye and has worked flawlessly. I recommend anyone with a BB to buy one of these, whether you charge from your computer or wall.
Travel USB Charger Kit
Again, job well done. Kit comes with a wall charger and USB cord. I like the fact I can charge both ways via USB or Laptop. I found that I have one less cord I need to travel with. Again works flawlessly.
