Seidio Charging Cradle
User: Greg Davis, Jun 6, 2012
Pros: Small, and well balanced
The charging cradle is designed well, and has good balance while holding the 9930 BBerry. Use it everyday.
User: Paul Gintonio, May 23, 2012
Works like I hoped. No more plugging charging cord in a out. Leave the cradele on the night stand and you have clock while charging.
Cool and Functional
User: Chip Slicer, Apr 20, 2012
Absolutely love this at work, works great with the Seidio Active case (already has the holes in the bottom of the case) and keeps the battery charged while Im at my desk. Much nicer than constantly plugging and unplugged and wearing out a port over time.
Great Charging Stand
User: Harry Jones, Mar 21, 2012
Pros: Sturdy, weighted base
Great charging stand for the 9900. Holds the phone firmer than the BB brand I had for the 9700. Weighted base helps keep the cradle from sliding around. Recommended!

This cradle hold the 9930 very well.
Even works with the Otterbox Commuter
User: Brian K, Mar 2, 2012
I bought the Otterbox Commuter case and was torn between getting a new seidio case with the dock or just dock it naked.
I realized that with a few modifications, I can most likely use the seidio dock with the commuter case. I was right. Punch a few holes with a leather hole punch where the prongs are and stuck a small spacer near the front of the dock so that it stands the phone upright a little more than usual and it works perfectly.
For those that prefer the commuter case but also want the dock, just letting you all know that it works. Kudos to DIY projects.
Great piece of equipment

Charging cradle SEIDIO
User: Antony BOUSMAR, Jan 31, 2012
Pros: excellent connection with the charging contacts
I have the BlackBerry and the Seidio charging craddles. The latter is by far superior for the stability of the BB 9900 on the base and the connection to the contacts. Since the battery needs to be charged more often, I bought another Seidio charging craddle because it is a bit bulky to move it between office and home.
Cons: just a bit bulky
Infinitely better than RIMs charging dock
User: Jens Biermann, Jan 26, 2012
Pros: Feels substantial, holds phone securely, its not like the RIM dock at all so it actually works
If you can get RIMs dock and it works for you then great, because you can find that for less money. If you realize that it doesnt work for you then get the Seidio because it work flawlessly, especially compared to RIMs dock.
Cons: takes a little longer to charge phone than using the standard BB charger

So very much better than RIMS Desktop Charging Cradle. My Bold 9930 kept falling out of the cradle. You barely touch it and it would fall out. The Seidio Desktop Charging Cradle is awsome! Its sturdy with bettter weight & height support. It Really works!!
This is the one for your new Bold
User: Bob L, Jan 16, 2012
I tried RIMs charging pod for the 9900/9930 its not something anyone wants to buy. However the Seidio cradle is exactly what you want/need. Its well made, nicely weighted to stay in place and most importantly it truly holds your Bold in place at a good angle for viewing while charging. The RIM charging pod is deficient in design its too finicky as to the placing of the phone to allow proper contact with the phone to enable charging and the phone does not sit firmly in place. This Seidio unit is the way to go.
The cradle charger that fits 2 different cases or naked 9930!
User: Scott HB, Jan 4, 2012
Pros: Fits 9930 with or without case, more substantial/solid than BB cradle
I bought this charging cradle with the Seidio Surface case and its an awesome combo. Why more companies arent making cradles that fit chargers I dont know. BB could make a few bucks and learn from Seido. This charger is bigger than the BB cradle. It is easier to drop the 9930 into and not have to fiddle with it to make sure its charging. Nothing sucks worse than putting your 9930 to sleep for the night and find it not charged in the morning like I did with BBs charger. Keep it up Seidio!
Cons: None so far
SEIDIO Desktop Charging Cradle
User: cynthia luzon, Jun 13, 2012
Pros: good size, convenient
I used my Desktop software yesterday to backup and updaet and when I put the BB inside the cradle, I had to actually put the uSB plug into the BB directly because it did not work (this is the first time) when it was plugged into the back of the actual cradle. ??? It worked last time so I am not sure what happened.
Cons: when BB is in cradle, doesnt always connect to Desktop software
works as advertised
User: dave roberts, Mar 16, 2012
Pros: sleek design
For the price, i expected to receive a transformer with the base, not just a usb cable
Cons: no charger
I Like It
User: Michael Norris, Mar 13, 2012
Pros: Really nice looking
It takes awhile to charge.
User: Tim Robertson, May 30, 2012
Pros: charges phone with case on
overall a great product
Cons: a little tricky to get the prongs to touch with the case
Not so much...
User: Jim McKinney, May 11, 2012
I bought this because of the ratings and unfortunately this did not work well for me. With the insert I found the phone to be unstable. Then originally the charge time was very long (4-6 Hours vs 1 hour outside the cradle) then it stopped charging altogether.So it must of been my unlucky day, thanks for Crackberrys great return policy.
Charging contacts dont line up
User: Tanner Anders, Mar 12, 2012
While the dock seems to be well-made, it just doesnt fit. The charging contacts dont line up either in the Active case or without. I can usually get them to contact if I fiddle with it for a while, but there is no guarantee that they will stay in place. Most mornings find a dead device.
