4.0 out of 5 stars NOT exactly as specified - newer model!
Just a word of warning, this is NOT the same charger as the Amazon description would make out. The 2 LED indicators on the front of the device are actually NOT on this model. If you look on the official Blackberry site you'll find 2 chargers like this, one for the older Curve models and one for the newer 8900. The older charger unit states it has front LEDs to indicate...

3.0 out of 5 stars Charge only no synch
Recently purchased as a charger and synch accessory. The unit will not synchronise your BB it will only charge. The light (one LED at the rear) only works with a charger and not with a USB cable (it will charge through USB).

So if you want a good quality desktop charger then this is perfect. If you want to also synch then stay with the USB lead that came free...

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT exactly as specified - newer model!, 30 Jun 2009

This review is from: BlackBerry 8900 Charging Pod (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Just a word of warning, this is NOT the same charger as the Amazon description would make out. The 2 LED indicators on the front of the device are actually NOT on this model. If you look on the official Blackberry site you'll find 2 chargers like this, one for the older Curve models and one for the newer 8900. The older charger unit states it has front LEDs to indicate charging status, but the 8900 version doesn't have front LED indicators. There is an LED at the back to indicate that the unit is powered up.

Apart from the incorrect description the charger works perfectly. You can use either the wall charger cable or the PC USB to mini USB cable but you cannot sync the device to the PC when the USB cable is plugged into the charger unit.

Looks stylish and holds the Curve nicely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect phone home, 22 July 2009

Forget the lights - this is somewhere to keep your Blackberry Curve 8900 that will ensure the battery is always fully charged when you need to use it. (Remember, you'll need to buy the charger separately.)

The pod is a top quality product - reasonably heavy for its size, and beautifully designed and made. There's a slip-resistant base and a micro-USB socket on the rear (yes, those silver pads either side of the battery cover catch on the phone are charging contacts).

Every phone should have one!

5.0 out of 5 stars For £8 - Quite Simply The Best Blackberry Accessory Around, 18 Aug 2009
This review is from: BlackBerry 8900 Charging Pod (Wireless Phone Accessory)
This product is fantastic - it doesn't matter that it doesn't have LED's. You know your phone is charging when the clock comes on! The product provides a safe place to keep your blackberry whilst its charging so that it does not get scratched or damaged sitting around on your desk - thats the only reason i bought it. It looks quite stylish, and its very simple to set up and use. Simply pop the phone on and it'll charge away (it takes the hassle out of connecting a micro usb every-time you want to boost your battery life)............... No credible 8900 user should be without one.

Note! You cannot connect the the charger to your laptop and charge from their, it has to be connected to the mains.

P.S. Service was also very good - delivery in 2 days.

4.0 out of 5 stars The two LED 2-colour indicators do not work, 26 Feb 2009
This review is from: BlackBerry 8900 Charging Pod (Wireless Phone Accessory)
The two LED 2-colour indicators through the BlackBerry logo on the front of the Pod do not work. It is not possible to know when charging is complete.

Wasn't exactly sure if I actually needed this but ordered it anyway. Glad I did as I don't need to use the mains charger any more and put it in my away-day bag.

Simply plug into a USB hub; place phone and it charges quite happily.

Please note that it's only function is charging. For data, you unplug the lead from the charger and insert into phone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little stand for the bedside, 31 July 2010
This review is from: BlackBerry 8900 Charging Pod (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Perfect for sitting on your bedside table - set your Blackberry to bedside mode then leave it sitting there all night with a dimmed clock screen. It charges while it's docked and in the morning the alarm wakes you up.
Perfect alternative to an alarm clock and also no more forgetting to charge your phone!
Only thing to remember - you just get the dock so you need the power adaptor separately to plug into the back of the dock!

5.0 out of 5 stars Right style, right price, 12 Oct 2009
By 
CW (Cheshire, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: BlackBerry 8900 Charging Pod (Wireless Phone Accessory)
This product is excellent for charging your Curve 8900. It saves the problem of having the phone lying around at the end of the charger and it doubles up as an analogue clock as it charges - making it ideal for on a nightstand when charging. Great value for money

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - Does everything I could have wanted, 14 April 2010
By 
James Long (Liverpool, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: BlackBerry 8900 Charging Pod (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Purchased this and it is everything I could want. It allows me to have the phone on the bedside table so that it can be used as a clock (after it enters bedside mode) whilst still allowing me to charge it. Speedy delivery times as well

3.0 out of 5 stars pods, 18 Dec 2009
This review is from: BlackBerry 8900 Charging Pod (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Doesn't come with mains charger although it is advertised as a charging pod... bit misleading that !
Hopefully the charger that comes with the B/berry will fit.
