BlackBerry compatible AC charger AND car charger in ONE UNIT
There's a new USB-power charger that's both a car charger and an AC adaptor.
The same store also sells ultracompact retractable USB cables (compatible with both your computer AND the above charger):
Guess, maybe you want to contact BoxWave about a discount to BlackBerryClub members :D
I not too hip on Non-OEM charging and batteries. And that thing looks a little big for my lighter socket to shifter ratio.
True, but it uses a modern switching power supply so your car's electricity can vary from 12V all the way to a whopping 24V, without overvoltaging the charging current by accident. I think it's worth the negligible risk for the convenience -- I have used a Boxwave product and they seem to be well made -- generally got good reviews by reviewers -- they've been in the business long enough for me to trust them. I think. :)
But you're right, it's generally risky for non-OEM products, have to be careful... And, yes, at 3.0 inches (plus about 0.8" inch long for miniSync USB plug or 2" for the stiff plug of a standard USB cable), it could poke too far out of the socket and into the gearshift area.
Hey rcg, you own the BlackBerryCentral.com domain, right? (sent you a PM).
Personally, I didn't like that picture...I think it looks like some kind of techno-vibrator!
I had a versa charger from Boxwave and while I liked the versatility it offered, it didn't stand up to the rigors of travel well. If I remember correctly it was not a U/L listed product, if that matters to anyone. From a size standpoint, (size does matter, right?) I had no issues with it fitting in the same area as a standard charger.
Has anyone tried to use the Boxwave Car Charger with a cable OTHER than the MiniSync itself? I had a MiniSync cable for my Dell handheld and now have the BB 7100t. I gave the MiniSync to my sister and kept the car charger piece. But if I try to plug the Blackberry USB cable into it...I get nothing...anyone else had this happene or have any idea about it?
The Versa Charger is not listed as a prodyct for BlackBerries yet. When it cam out a few months ago, Boxwave responded that it does not have enough amperage capability to charge a BB and that they were working on a new product capable of a BB. When I searched Boxwave's website today for products for the BB 7290, this charger still does not show up.
It will likely charge for a few seconds and then shut off until Boxwave says the new version has enough amps.
Boxwave's website now has the Versa Charger Pro which they list as compatible with BlackBerry products sinc eit turns out 1 amp.
Has anybody tried this one?
