I know I posted another thread about this but it got buried and did not include photos of the actual pod and nobody would ever be able to find the photos. Well I got it today (that was fast) from Amazon. The main point of this charging pod is to save wear and tear on your Blackberry's USB port causing it to rip away from the phone's main board. It can and will happen
with repeated charging/plugging your charging directly into the phone's USB port. It's happened to quite a few of us.
Amazon.com, OEM RIM Blackberry 9700 (Onyx) Bold 2 charging pod
I will confirm that the item is indeed OEM (RIM-branded) and is not some knock off. *whew* It looks much better in person than online. Online they tend to look cheesy. Anyway it's simple. Plug your phone in and drop it in. Works as advertised.
I just snapped these in my office and will embed them into the thread when I get home. And sorry about my dirty hands I had to change a tire out yesterday and the stuff won't wash away. HAHA :( The macro mode on my Canon point and shoot camera doesnt help either
