    I have the same dock at work and love it. I'm going to buy another one for home and get one of the combo with spare batteries.

    That blue LED is BRIGHT. It paints a 4-5' round circle on the ceiling at night. I've got my own private bat signal. At home I'd probably paint over the LED to keep my bedroom dark.

    Thanks for the info. Pretty nice and a sweet deal! If I would have seen this a few weeks ago I would have been all over it. But, as of lately, my battery is great so I dont need it. Seems like my settings and the OAT update did alot for me. Usually take my phone off the charger at 5am and make it to midnight. I leave GPS and WiFi or 3G connected constantly, too. But for you, Enjoy! :)

    I bought just the dock. It's only a couple dollars more to get the batteries + the dock so it helps justify buying a second dock - lol.

    I'll post again when I get the 2nd dock + batteries.

    do we know if these chargers will provide a sufficient enough charge for the evo? it isnt OEM so there is a chance that the charge may not charge the evo to full capacity, sorta like how cheap chargers dont charge your phone to its max capacity..im not sure how exactly it works and all..i am interested in picking up a dock for my Evo i just dont want to damage the battery by using a dock that doesnt fully charge the battery

    Nothing in this kit actually supplies power to the Evo. It is just a USB pass-through. If you want OEM charge, plug the USB plug into the OEM AC-USB adaptor deal. I have it plugged into my desktop PC at work and It topped off my battery to 100% while playing MP3s all day. :cool:

    The AC adaptor you see in the ebay ad powers the spare battery charger only and is a mini USB plug vs the micro USB on the Evo.

    so you mean it does not include its own power cable, you can use your own if your choose via the OEM power adapter and the usb cable?
    thats exactly the type of thing im looking for

    it comes with the power cable is mini usb(not micro usb like the phone) and the usb cable comes connected too, so the usb cable is for the phone and the power cable is for the spare battery

    ok so lemme just get this all straightened out

    the cradle comes with two cables, one power cable and one USB cable..
    the USB cable is for the phone ( to connect it to the computer)
    and the power cable included is to charge the included battery

    If i wanted to charge the phone via the wall outlet, i could simply use the OEM USB cable and wall adapter that came with the phone, as well as use the powercable included with the cradle to charge the spare battery correct?

    im pretty sure they dont work well at all..im not interested in the battery so much, but the dock itself..i had one for my blackberry and i loved it. The spare battery will suit me just for when my OEM battery dies and i need a little bit of juice for a short ammount of time..instead of having to have the phone charge i can still be on the go with the spare battery

    Worth the risk to burn up phone with non branded batteries?

    I dont think it will burn the phone and either way I got insurance and they can't prove that I use another battery tho
