This review is from: 2-Pack Car Charger Compatible With Motorola Droid A855 Verizon
Pros: The price. They charge our phones.
Cons: Very cheap materials. The one I gave my wife stopped working after only a couple of months.
Other Thoughts: My wife used hers quite a bit and would move the charger back and forth between our vehicles. Mine hasn't moved from it's outlet since I bought it and still works just over a year later, although I rarely use it at all.
I still rated four eggs because of the price. A little higher quality would have earned the fifth, but I got exactly what I expected for cost.
This review is from: Charge Base S for Xbox 360
Pros: Works as expected. For nearly the price of a pack of batteries, this is a great value.
A fully charged battery pack seems to last significantly longer than a set of new batteries. I also really like the fact that I'm not having to throw used batteries away.
Fast charging time and dock has a charging progress indicator.
Cons: The battery pack must be in a controller in order to charge on the dock. This was expected as this is the norm with most rechargeable products.
Other Thoughts: Two controllers will charge simultaneously, but will take nearly twice as long to charge. Flip side is that one controller charges from 0 - 100% pretty fast (Approx an hour).
When I first started using the rechargeable battery packs, one of my controllers kept losing power. I would turn it back on and it would show a full charge, but after a few more minutes of use, it would happen again. I took the battery pack off, inspected the controller cavity, battery pack and all metal contacts. Everything looked fine, so I put the battery pack back in place and I haven't had the problem again after several months of use. I believe the first time I installed the battery pack, it was not seeded properly which would cause the contacts to separate while I feverishly mashed the controller buttons.
One more thing I'd like to add: There's a single USB socket on the front of the charging dock. I don't see any mention of it in the product description and I've never used it so I'm not sure what it does. My assumption is that it can be used as an alternate power source, but I can't say for sure.
This review is from: Battery+Multimedia Dock Cradle For Motorola A855 Droid
Pros: Literally none.
Cons: Complete garbage.
The dock is pointless. When reading the product description, it seemed the dock would add new features to the cell phone. It does not.
The LEDs are VERY bright in a dark room so if you use your phone as your alarm clock, keep that in mind.
The new battery never worked. I tried charging the battery using the extra charger on the dock itself and also while in the cell phone (via dock and normal charger). My phone behaved as if there was no battery at all.
Other Thoughts: I saw this "deal" on sale prior to xmas 2011 and made the mistake of buying a second while the first was still in transit. Neither battery worked at all.
I had forgotten all about this purchase until now. I'm kicking myself for not returning this garbage.
The heat from burning your money would have more value than this product.
