Has anyone found a good Desktop cradle charger for the DINC 2 yet?
As they are so similar in design, will the Incredible S cradle work with the Incredible 2?
I bought this one on eBay:
USB CHARGER DESKTOP CRADLE+CABLE FOR HTC INCREDIBLE S - eBay (item 160576258014 end time May-20-11 01:51:48 PDT)
The seller told me that it would work with either the DINC2 or the DINCS. I don't know much more about it since it hasn't arived yet but I will let you know more when it does.
Please let us know as Im looking to buy one also.
I did find this...
HTC Droid Incredible 2 3-In-1 Desktop Cradle Charger w/Battery Charging Slot - Cell Phone Chargers for HTC Droid Incredible 2
I've never bought anything from them so I couldn't tell you how they are.
This is what I want:
Or this one...
I bought the "Redneck" version. I went to Office Depot and bought the Black Mesh Business Card Holder and it works great! Matches my phone too!!!
do you think cased phones would fit there? or if we have the 2150 extended battery? probably not but i'm wondering/hoping it would.
i would say that it is unlikely for the phone to fit in these cradles with any kind of case or extended battery installed.
with my old Inc, though, I had the htcpedia dock and i could dock it with the 2150mah battery installed
Didn't think of that... I keep a thin case (works with holster combo) on my phone.
So I guess there's not enough play on these docks to handle the extra .05 inch of thickness?
Pictures of "Redneck" Phone Dock. Purchased from Office Depot for $4.69 and matches the color of my phone. Just wonder how many of y'all will run to Office Depot or Walmart and pick one of these babies up?!!!
Did you get it? I got one of these:
USB Sync Cradle Dock Desk Charger For HTC Incredible S - eBay (item 200598038761 end time Jun-13-11 09:52:23 PDT)
and it was a complete waste of money. It's my fault. Clearly it is a cradle FIRST (I thought the slot was for the battery alone). There is NO WAY to charge an extra battery with this item. Worse, the phone just sits in the plastic base and you plug a cable into it (and the charging source.) Lame, but again, my fault for not reading the listing right.
Mine says on the ad "This charger is able to charger the device and spare battery at the same time." but it hasn't arrived yet. I really hate ordering crap from Tokyo because it takes so stinking long. I will post here as soon as I can....hopefully soon.
What's the listing #? Link above is bad...
eBay item # 160576258014
It arrived today and I really like it so far.
- It works
- Charges the spare AND the phone using one plug (the other is for syncing)
- I use Bedside from the market. Couplde with the cradle, it makes my phone an instant bedside clock when docked and returns to a phone when undocked. This makes me remember my Storms & their docks (I liked the BB Storms!)
- Only the cradle in the box - no charger. Which is OK if it would work with the charger that came with the phone. It accepts the original 'mini' USB form, which I happen to have a few of.
-It doesn't work with a case on. I use a gel case...and it VERY close. Would probably work with a slight mod.
- It grabs pretty tight. Easy to dock, not so easy to undock!
Thanks. Just ordered one. When did you order yours and how long did it take to arrive?
Bought may 2, arrived may 16.
I am using an ez stand ezeStand - Buy it Now! $12.95 free shipping. Bought it originally for my INC1. It works great in horizontal position with charger cable on top. They now offer an XL model that looks like it could work horizontal and vertical.
bought one of these...it shipped today.
Does your Incredible 2 dock on this Incredible S desktop cradle (KiDiGi)? I'm thinking of ordering one of these up. Thanks!
I sell a few different model Docks for the Incredible 2 ... and mine "do" fit with all cases and extended batteries, as far as I know I am the only one in the world that makes these to fit with "any" case or extended battery and also fits without a case as well.
You can check them out here, I have video's at the bottom of those pages to better show how they can be used with/without cases or extended batteries.
