When MobileFun, a UK based accessory company, asked us to review one of their products, I quickly perused the Blackberry Bold 9900 accessories section of their website and found this little gem. Its a charging cradle that can connect to a power outlet (via the USB adapter) or computer and will charge and sync data while also charging a spare battery behind your 9900. Talk about a busy little accessory!
I had been wanting to pick up a spare battery anyway and this dual cradle would be the perfect solution for keeping everything juiced and ready to go. I found a deal on a spare battery on Amazon and impatiently waited for the goods to arrive at my door.
I have been testing out the Dual Cradle for a few days now and it has been awesome! Being able to charge the phone and a spare battery at the same time is an excellent feature. I am all about efficiency and reducing the amount of gadgetry I use on a daily basis so this is a perfect fit for me. I’m out a lot during the day so having an extra battery has been helpful.
- All in one convenience (charge phone, battery, sync data)
- Keeps 2 batteries fully charged
- Reduces desktop clutter
- Keeps 9900 at convenient angle
- LED light indicates when charging is complete (red=charging, green=charged)
- Affordable (about $30 CAD)
- Dock uses USB instead of charging contacts at bottom (difficult to insert when its dark, but necessary to both charge and sync)
