Default My GN Desktop Sync, Phone & Battery Charger

Paid $21.99 w/free shipping on eBay to "puterhub" Hong Kong China on 1/18/2012 and received it on 1/25/2012.

I did a fast check and it charged it 9% in 20 minutes while I was moving files to and from the PC to the GN.
The Wall charger says it puts out 5V@1.0A.

The blue light is pretty darned bright but is in the back. I bet it puts a blue tint on my white roof in the dark.
The pictured red light is OK and turns green when the spare battery is full.

It indeed does charge both the phone and the spare battery at the same time and syncs' or say, allows you to do the usual in the phones Internal Storage. I don't sync per-say.

The phone can kinda wobble a tad right and left but who bangs on their desk?
EDIT: I put 2 tiny strips of the soft side of velcro on the bottom and on one side. Now I can finger the screen with no wobble.


The USB fit is firm enough that you can pick the whole thing up by the phone. It is by no means too tight. Just right.
No drivers were prompted to load.

Now if it will only last eh?

Here is the eBay link, you know how eBay links come and go so... Tell him 10101bud sent you. He has 92 available as of today.

I don't see why it isn't already here. Like the cases and all the other goodstuff, finding accessories for the GN is a pita. Especially the first few weeks...jeeze louise.

This all in one was no where to be found for the LTE GN and I found the GSM version on eBay and contacted the seller a month or so ago and he said he would get back with me when they came in and he did.

Also a reminder the 2100mAh extended battery is still $24.99 @ Verizon online.

I really want a landscape charging dock, alas...but this looks good, you've almost talked me into digging around to find my old ebay account. Thanks for the info and pics!

Exactly what I'm looking for GAPI. Not a bad price either. I already bought the extended battery, and of course, I have the standard battery that came with the phone. I remember a charger only version being available at one time on VZW. I'll have to look again.

Thanks a million for that link. I just picked one up but there was no place to tell the seller you sent me. If he sends an email confirming, I'll let him know.

Again, thanks. This is great.

I ordered one. I hope it works out well. It looks like the delivery is going to take a while, but I'm tired of charging both of my batteries on my phone and having it tied up for 3-4 hours.

Has anyone with a GSM GNEX picked up one of these?

I have (2) standard oem gsm batterys and would like a either a dock + spare battery charger or just a battery charger that will charge these batterys..

Anyone with anything that works?

Thanks for posting this. I bought one, and it just shipped. I would love a landscape dock, but this will at least hold me over- and I'm not sure I want to pay a ton of money for a landscape dock if that's what it comes to anyway.

Don't know if its been answered yet or not but will this charge a GNex with the extended battery and cover? Will the extended battery also just fit in the charging slot?

Yes, I use the extended in the phone and the charging bay.

To answer anthers post, I doubt any case on a GN will work in this dock.

Perfect for me, I'm not hard on a device. It travels naked in my front pants pocket.

I'm gentle with my phone, too, but the back of this one is too slick to feel safe in my hand, so I've got a cruzer lite case on it.
