    Hey guys, once again. I tried searching, but no luck

    I have the charging pod (cradle). but I was wondering if it is safe to have it in the charging pod and have it connected via the usb cable to my computer at the same time?

    Basically, the bb will have 2 methods of charging...via the cradle pod or the USB. Would this damage my BB in any way?

    Thank you guys


    I have attached a picture so you guys can see what the charging pod is

    I haven't tried that out. And I'm not going to. But for what reason would you want to do this? Just to have the phone upright while syncing or transferring files? Well....

    If so (you're like me), just set it up for bluetooth syncs and such. That way you can leave it in the charging pod upright and such. When I do something which requires a usb cable, or if I want really fast backups etc I just plug it in and set the phone down.

    On the other hand, if you were to have a non powered USB port you could charge via a pod and sync via the port, but that's rare now.

    But who's to say that having two charging methods "active" at teh same time will hurt...

    why would you have two anyways? If you are doing something with your berry on a pc just hook the pod with the usb cable and plug away... Never heard anyone say it will hurt either... But maybe It can damage the battery? have you seen the article on the exploding device? I wouldn't risk it. Batteries aren't cheap.

    Neither is surgical reconstruction if ones Berry blows(not to mention having BB withdrawls..)..if you live to tell about it...lol all joking aside I can't imagine it being GOOD for your device but I have no proof, and don't want my berry to go poof! :-)

    Well...I've noticed I've done it accidentally...I don't do it on purporse

    The pod is right by my computer, so I tend to drop it in there when im syncing or something

    It does no harm to the pod or the device. I do it frequently.
