Contest: Charge your device in style with a BlackBerry Charging Pod. Leave a comment to win!

BlackBerry Charing Pod

By far one of my all time favorite accessories, and what I would state is a "must have" for any device, is the BlackBerry Charging Pod. This cute little guy serves as a resting place for your device on your desk, nightstand or wherever you need to put it down. It not only holds your BlackBerry, but it charges it for you as well. No more fumbling with the USB charging cable that came with your device. Plug in the BlackBerry Charging Pod to your standard charger, drop in your device and you're done. Use Bedside Mode on your nightstand to view your clock and disable alerts at night, or simply have your device ready for access on your desk during the day. This accessory is one that can't be beat. Availabe for all devices at ShopCrackBerry.com

CONTEST: Win a Free Charging Pod for your BlackBerry Smartphone

For your chance to win a free Charging Pod for your BlackBerry, simply leave a comment to this blog post telling us about your charging woes, and how a charging pod would make life easier. Contest ends this Sunday night at Midnight PST. Please, just one entry per person.

Getting The Most Out Of Your Charging Pod

The charging pod is great for what it is meant to do, charge. You can maximize it by learning to use Bedside Mode to its full potential, and paired with the Charging Pod you have a great combination. You can use the accessory not only to charge your device at night, but as an alarm clock or resting place on your desk for your BlackBerry. We posted a video on Bedside Mode and if you didn't check it out its definitely worth watching.

Until Next Time...

I use my blackberry for my alarm clock and the charging pod would make it easier to see my clock at night. I would love to have this accessory.

I would love one since I need to go buy a clock for counselling sessions, it would let me keep on track ! <3

I need a charging pod because my wife likes to steal my cord so if i get a charging pod i might be able to syke her out, and she will finally get her own!!!! thanks guys!

Very frustrating when you forget your BB is charging via cable and grab it in a hurry only to drop it because its still plugged in. Need a charging pod for my 9700

Hey, this charging pod looks awesome. Crackberry always has the coolest contests, hopefully I can snag this one. Thanks again guys.

The charging pod is a must have item for my Blackberry at work. Makes it easy to respond to messages when I'm working on my computer.

This sure is a "must have". I have been looking for one for a long time, but sadly, they are not available in my country of residence. Maybe I can win one here.

I'd like one. I'm so tired of having to plug my phone in when I want to charge it. It is such an inconvenience and I waste so much time during my day.

this would come in handy at bedside. Often take my BB to bed as an alarm then as soon as I wakeup I need to hock up to computer to charge for the day (never get a full charge)

I would like this charging dock. I currently live in a 120 year old apartment building with very few electrical outlets. This dock would be a welcome addition to my limited outlet space. Its sleek, slender, and would make me forget the current charging woes I have in this decrepit building.

I hate it every mornig when you wake up not knowng what time tis and having to have to pick up the phone to see the numbers, when I could just look over at the dock and doing it hands free

I've become a little obsessed with keeping my office clean, and since the pod for the torch is also a sync pod, it would cut down on the cable clutter you see!

I'm tired of plug and unplug my phone everyday. I just want to drop it on the pod just like that.

I have a finicky usb charge port. The cable must be in just right for it to work. (issue with the port not cable as I tested with another) . This might be an affordable solution to that frustration.

I have more than once had to turn in a phone as defective when in fact it was the charging jack that got jerked around because the wire was in the way when someone put their books on the table or whatnot.

I have a world time clock screen saver that only turns on when the device is in charge mode

This would help me keep the device at an angle and not worry about connecting the USB Cable to charge, and still view the different times that I need for work

Also would look nice next to the iPhone Dock :D

It's about time I venture into the world of charging pods, being that I've had a blackberry for many years. Hopefully I will be blessed enough to win this one from crackberry.

I am on a 9670 Style and with the smaller battery this is essential to me. I would love to win one and will wait for you guys to get them in stock.

My BB used to sit next to my bed at night charging and I would forget to change profiles so the junk mail didn't wake me up so it would buzz and fall off the stand.... After reading a CB article about bedside mode I went out and bought a charging pod and my sleep improved because of fewer disturbances. Now I just changed BB’s and realized how much I appreciate and miss having the charging pod so I need to go out and get a new one (unless I win one here).

I just recently installed the OS6 on my 9700 and it seems to drain my bb a lil quicker than 0S5. A charging dock at work would make my life a lil easier, no wires!

I need to make sure my 9700 is charged and ready to rock by the time I'm off work, while at work I have to fiddle with the charger every time I come back to my desk and the wire seems to fall behind my desk a lot. Having a dock would solve two problems, I would be able to just put the phone on it and the dock would keep my wire from falling.

I have a dock at home, but one at work would be effin awesome too, I love having a dock and have been using one since they first launched for my 83XX curve!

I would keep this on my desk to charge my phone...no more fighting with the wife as to whose BB has more priority for charging!!

I sold my charging pod with my Tour when I mistakenly switched to Android, and now that I am back I need a new pod for my Bold!!

i leave my charger lying around and sometimes can't figure out where i put it. Hope I win this the charging pod to take care of this.

I used to have a Bold 9000 with a dock, now I have th torch 9800 and it came with only one usb cable. I usually do my software upgraes at work so I had a data cable at work since i had a seperate cable for charging with the dock at home. Now i am stuck using the same cable. Also i like to listen to music at bedside from my phone and a dock would help me even more with that.

My brother has one of these chargers and it's nice to pick up and go instead of fiddling around with the cables when you're rushing out.

I love this charger! Winning this would make my year... I am a hugh Blackberry fan and wish this came with all Blackberry devices.

oh boy do i ever need one of those. The only place my bed is able to sit in my room is in front of the only open plug, wouldn't it be nice to have a charging dock so i didn't have to unplug things to charge my berry:)

I charge my 9700 every night because I'm a heavy user. I have my phone on the nightstand and an alarm clock so I can see the time. I have 2 devices plugged in, with this charging pod I could "go green" and get rid of the alarm clock to save energy. Just use one device...the best one...my 9700 BlackBerry. Thanks!

Since swtiching from my old Tour to the Torche, I have been LOST without my charging pod. I not only had one on my night side table, but another at work - so I rely on them all day long! I desperately need one!!!

So I charge my phone on my night stand next to my bed, but the cord is always twisting it away from me, pulling it to the edge so if I reach for it, it hits the floor, or getting caught in the drawer and disconnecting the phone altogether. I could really use this charging pod not only to eliminate these problems, but to spare myself the energy and inconvenience of sitting up or shooting an arm out from under the covers to check the time.

Thank you, Crackberry, for providing the things you do and making me feel good about switching to a Blackberry.

I would LOVE that charger! It would go great on my desk, with my Torch. My boss always has a problem when I use the USB to charge it, and my bf always unplugs my bb to charge his.

It would be a great way to have a charger just for me, currently my wife has her 8520 charger all over the house so she ends up using mine. most of the time I have to charge my BB in the office using a USB cable.

I bought a cheap charging dock for my BB9700 on ebay. It's suck, cheap plastic, terrible finish, even not fit my 9700. Sigh...Would love to win this contest to have an original/OEM charging dock my beloved Bold 9700.

I charge my 9650 at night on my nightstand, using bedside mode and I'm constantly fumbling with and dropping the cord. Life would be much nicer with this pod!

It would be the end of the falling blackberry and would help me to check the time at nights without much effort. Pick me please!!!

I need it for the night stand. having only 1 micro usb cable its a pain in the butt to keep transferring from computer to charging cube. I know it sounds lazy but hey it would make my life easier

I have used a BB charging pod for my Storm and Storm 2, but due to my income being cutback, I am unable to afford one for my Torch. I relied on the charging pod to show me the time while it was in bedside mode. PLUS is makes it easier to just drop the phone on the pod rather than try fiddling with the tiny A/C.

Its amazing how quickly we become used to the little things that enhance how we use our phones...I miss my charing pod. =(

My micro USB cord keeps slipping and falling behind my dresser. A charging pod would be great to anchor the cord!

This could be a lifechanger for me...have all my charging wires in one place and can't untangle them for the life of me. Takes at least 5 minutes before I can find the right one to charge with!!

I use my Berry for a lot of streaming media, which is a big battery draw of course.
I watch a lot of Yesterberry (thanks CharredPC) and this would solve both viewing and charging issues.

I thank my phone every other morning by tripping on my charging cord and having the poor thing fall on the ground. I need a charging pod really bad to save my little friend from falling!

this would be perfect for charging while at work. no more getting the chord caught on my chair and having the phone fall to the floor!

I would love to win one of these charging pods, to be able to prop it up my BB like a clock especially while traveling or at the office would be so cool!!!!!!

I have a dock I received at a convention and use it every night. These are an easy way to charge your Blackberry. I would love another one.

This would make life so much easier because right now when I charge my bb i have to place it face down in order for the stupid charger to actually work. I have had this problem in the past and when I called asurion they said that they dont cover problems like this. Really. WTF!?!?!?!?!

I would really benefit from one. I wear glasses and when my phone is charging I have to struggle to find it just to see the time. Would make an awesome gift. I would be able to find the time with out breaking anything on my night table.

my phone has a faulty batter and I have to charge it every 8 hours, so having a stand would help with this and at least it would look better while charging.

i keep knocking my phone off the beside table case I dont see the phone maying flat and now i have damages the corners and torn much of the paint off, this would help me remember that my phone is there and hopefully save its life.

I would love this cause I can never see the time when i sleep and have to get up to check my phone. Having it upright would be amazing and change my sleeping habits. thanks crackberry.

This will save my 9650 next time I spill a drink on the counter and it washes over by device. Standing it up in this pod will give me the extra time needed to save it.

When my poor Torch is across the room charging, I can't see if the LED is blinking... so I'm constantly getting up to check on it. With a charging pod, I'll be able to tell from across the room!

I have a hard enough time getting the little charger plugged into my Torch... and it only gets worse when I've had a couple beers! A charging pod would make it so much easier!

Just viewed your video on the charging pod. I think this will be on my Xmas list. My blackberry is never far, already use it as my alarm clock, so this is just a more convenient just pop it in to the charger pod and you don't have to scroll thru and select your phone only when you go to sleep and scroll thru again when you wake up to normal. Don't know how many times a missed a text/email/reminder because my phone is on phone only mode.

I'd get to see my clock no problem. No worries about grabbing my charger wherever it may be, just slap it on the dock and call it a night.

What can I say except WOW! I can charge my BlackBerry Storm without fumbling with a usb cable event after I take my glasses off. Plus I can and use it as an alarm clock too.

i currently us a a BB stand i made out of LEGO and have to plug it in when i need to charge it and the cord always falls behind my desk when it is not charging so this would help alot

ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME !

I am a student currently at University of Calgary. I would love to have the charging pod for my 9700 because it would be much easer to see on my BB on the messy table with all the school papers. Also, this will help me out a lot when I am hurry to get to school.... just pick up and run :)

I do not have a lot of money to spend on BB accessories.... So PLEASE PICK ME! I would love to have this one!

Please pick meeeee! :)

***THANK YOU SO MUCH!***

Always believed in getting rid of clutter & since convergence has taken place, its been great. My phone, camera, alarm clock, everything in one device. The only problem is it would be great to keep the phone in such a way that it mimicks the ol alarm clock :)
This solves that problem :)
And yes, no more fiddling around with wires to charge, just plop the phone into the dock, and your done, thats sooo convenient.

it would make my life so much easier... im getting sick and tired of wires and this would be AWESOME!!

Please let me win this people of CrackBerry, I have no alarm clock and I need something like this to prop up my phone so I can see what time it is and stuff.

More chance to win stuff!

...though, i can at least pop my torch into a charging pod instead of finding the travel charger every time i need to charge it...

My wife was is now hooked on her blackberry tour 9630 a charger would make her even more of a crackberry head.

Keep hearing good things about charging pods & given the poor placement of the charging slot on the torch this looks like a must have

i read some comments the charger makes a great alarm clock. I love how it sits in landscape mode. Hmm... christmas gift ideas.

Yes please! Don't mind if I do :)

Hi, my name is Sab. I just got my crackberry a month ago. It is my new best friend.

I've always wanted the charging pod for my BlackBerry 9700 and I pray I can be blessed enough to win one! I love it!!

I would love to have my 9700 charging and seeing a clock next to my bedside. Now if only CB can make it happen....:)

I would love to charge my 9700 at my bedside and see the alarm clock at the same time. Now if only CB can make it happen....

Please help! I drop my torch one too many times trying to snooze it up for another 5 minutes. This pod would save my little buddy from the half-asleep nicks and scratches. Help me! Help my little buddy!

It would make my life so much easier because instead of fiddling with the usb all I have to do is drop my phone in the charging pod and I'm done. It would make my life so much easier

I use my phone as an alarm and clock but I can't stand not being able to see the clock right away when I roll over to look at it. It would make use of by BB as an alarm clock if I can have an a charging pod to keep my phone sitting upright with the time on it for me to look at.

I've always had a pod for my previous blackberries, starting with my 8310, but I haven't gotten one for my Torch yet.
Not having my blackberry beside me, watching over me, at night is really messing me up.

The other night I woke up in a panic, thinking that my berry had gone missing when I glanced over at might night table and didn't the the clock face's reassuring visage standing guard.

Then there's the morning where I usually grab my 'berry out of it's pod when it's alarm goes off, and start going through the night's emails even before I'm fully awake.
Without the pod this reflex motion pulls the charging cable, dragging it across my night table and causing untold amounts of chaos to my collection of electronic devices.

Please help!

-Would be so nice not to worry about my toddler and dog playing with the loose cord! i have to keep hiding my damn charging cord so the little monsters don't electrocute themselves by putting it in their mouths!

BB Storm 2 is complete with the charging pod enabling full power for Apps and never worry for battery charge, beauty and useful = good mix

I don't use a case. I use a pouch for my Torch and would just love this. It's a definite 'must have', so I must have it. lol
Oh, please, please pick me.

anyway to enhance my bb experience is a plus, I would love to have this ----please choose me :-)

I would love to have this for my 9700. This will make my life sooooo much easier.

Please PICK ME! MMMMMMMMEEEEE!

I use my 9800 as my only alarm clock and I'm always keeping it on the charger while working at my desk since the blue tooth runs it down. I would have to decide where it would be more useful, but this would be an awesome gift for me.

This would be great for me as I use my Blackberry as a clock and alarm to get up in the morning. Its sucks when its dark and I can't find to Blackberry to see what time it is or to hit snooze for the 3rd time. And I don't know how many night where I have forgot to plug in to Blackberry to charge and woke up to a died phone...

Me, a heavy data user must constantly but caring the usb charger and car charger with me. I move ev'rywhere and stop to make time to see crackberry.com. So I"m In need of a charging pod since just holding that is slim and confortable, over all Stylish.

Ok, just receive my new torch and I love my RED one. This charger would look so bad (ass) with it. I never win, I want this one!

Thx from Dallas,Texas

I've been wanting to get a pod for my torch, but they're just too much right now. Would use it both at night for bedside mode and at work on the desk (although I don't really need to charge it during the day...battery life is that good!)

I need a charging pod for my torch. everytime i uplug it from the charger, the cord falls behind my desk into the spagehetti mess of wires where i need to fight off dust bunnies and spiders to retreive it again.

a charging pod would be the answer

I would lubb 2 win this cause I need a new charger. My daddy step on mines and broke it so I've been charging it by my laptop but that runs my battery down on my laptop sometimes. Plus everytime I upgrade to a new blackberry phone because I'd love no other phone a charger would be the least of my problems cause its usually always is my problem.

that would be sooo useful, my bb charger is for american outlets and i live in europe, where plugs should be round. my adaptor keeps falling out all the time because the original charger flat plugs fold, plus it would be nice not to drop my BB everytime i use it as an alarm clock and keep hitting it to snooze for just 5 more minutes lol

Hey my birthdays coming up too, just saying hehe
Id love one of these it would help out so much. I started using my phone as the bed side clock but it’s just looking up at the ceiling this would make my life so much easier plus when you’re looking for your phone in the middle of the night blind as a bat cause your glasses are on the night stand too. I come so close to knocking the bb off the table. That would really suck I’ve been lucky so far.
So pick me id really love it :)plus it would look so awesome sitting on my desk, and the wife would like it too

this would make for a great night-stand clock, and save space as well.
Right now, I share a charging cable with my GF and her Storm.
It would be a good time saver to wake up each morning with a fully charged Storm!

In order to reach the usb on my computer at work and recharge my berry, I have to hide the poor thing under my desk. This amazing desktop charger would allow me to proudly display my berry for everyone to envy.

This would allow me to keep my USB charger in my work bag and keep the pod on my desk. Right now I have to make sure I always have my USB cable with me just in case. I sure hope I WIN this.

I have been wanting one of these pods for awhile now. It would be so handy to just drop my Blackberry right in when it needs a little boost. I sure hope I win this one!!!!!

i'd like the charging pod because i usually don't remember to charge the BB until AFTER the lights are out. it's AMAZING how uncoordinated you get when you are half sleep! LOL
