    Thumbs up Three day analysis of Seidio's Desktop Cradle

    Advertisement



    Where to start?

    Seidio's Desktop Cradle comes in a white box with two contents:
    1) The desktop charging cradle
    2) mini USB to USB cord (See picture 1)

    The finish of the cradle I'm assuming is the exact same as the rubberized case if not better. It's smoother and really nice..

    The cradle itself is small and compact that doesn't take up much desk space plus it matches my all black setup 8-)

    It's really a no brainer to get this setup. The cord is very long, five feet to be exact, which is great because I can mess around with the cord to have my desktop "cordless".

    Re: Three day analysis of Seidio's Desktop Cradle

    In the first attached picture you can see the cradle powered on. Green light indicator. The light turns on when the cradle is plugged into the USB and always stays on.

    The Pearl easily slides into the cradle though you have to make sure the gold plates on the back touches the gold chargers on the cradle or else the Pearl won't start charging.

    Now the Pearl looks stylish sitting on the cradle on top of your desk :razz:

    One downside I thought was that the cradle does not accept the Pearl with a case or skin (See third attachment). So for those with the rubberized case/clear case/silicone cases then you may want to think twice before getting the desktop cradle if you feel it is a hassle to take off the case to charge the Pearl via the desktop cradle.

    EDIT: I stand corrected. I did not know I had to remove the insert. Thank you Corey!

    But for those that have the invisible skin or no skin at all, this is a sexy alternative to charge your Pearl. I haven't calculated or timed to see if the desktop cradle charges quicker than the mini USB/USB cord that came with the 8100 but I'm assuming that it is the same.

    Overall:
    4.9 out of 5 Blackberries because I like the rubberized case and would like rather charge the pearl without the hassle of taking off the case, then reapplying the case whenever I go out.

    EDIT: Rating has been up-ed to 5 out of 5. This is perfect! I removed the insert and now the Pearl charges WITH the rubberized case. I love it!

    Nice to see it working with the Skin. Looks like I will have to get one of these too. Along with the skin of course

    The standard package also includes the AC travel adaptor so you can charge BB 8100 with AC power as well as the computer power
