    Q cradle

    i am considering this cradle i need to verify that it can also charge a separate battery -i see a whole in the back so i think it can- i have a good chance to getting a few standard batteries for a great price (read free :}

    thanks in advance..

    I have that one sitting next to me. Yes, it does have a slot for a battery. The slot will take three different size batteries, so you should be all set. It is set up, so that you can charge your phone at the same time as a battery.

    I keep one of these on my desk -- my Q would never get through an entire day unless it spent time charging. The shape and angle of it make it easy to continue to use the Q while it's in the cradle.

    you know i am not sure... i have a Q1. did the placement of the usb "socket" change on the Q9 ?
  10. Bottom left corner. does the width of the device matter?

    judging purely from the picture i would say it does not matter how wide it is...

    GOT IT!! Looks pretty sweet. But....looking like the 3200 doesn't fit in the rear. I swear I read somewhere it fit! I haven't tried the hammer yet though...

    yours came ? in tact ? mine came but it was pretty beat up (frankly it was packaged pretty bad..) they reacted quick & shipped a new one the moment i called and i shipped the broken one back. would a 3200 fit after you pull out that little plastic "plate"/divider thingie ?

    Yea, packaging...pretty lame. I was scared to open it up. Inside was OK though! Plastic piece is pulled, but too tight I think. If I removed the white wrapper covering...it might fit. It's that close. The picture in this thread must be two standards in there. I'll scope it more when I get home.

    The 3200 sure feels good though...with the new battery and did I mention the new unlimited plan? Crap, not even Xmas yet!!!

    hopefully they learned from past mistakes, waiting for #2 to arrive... was it stated that the 3200 would fit ?

    cradle arrived today... in one piece :}

    looks likes when the Q is done charging it charges the second battery in the battery slot, that is the charge indicator on the Q is not there (it's full, i know) and the green led on the cradle still flashes.. the extra battery i am charging has never been used so it must be empty.
