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.
