Mobi Products Cradle w/ Spare Battery Slot

BlackBerry Accessory Roundup - Win a Mobi Products Cradle with Spare Battery Slot



first......LOL............i alwasy put my phone on my desk which has a glass top, so this would be perfect..........thanks guys

Sweet i would like to have one of this at office to :) i have a Charging Pod at home and is amazing :) i would like to have this one to by the look of it it looks like a very good product :)

I could finally be able to have a regular charger on my office desk instead of having to keep carrying around all the accessories to keep charging it since I don't have a car charger :/

This would replace the cherished but alas non-charging ceramic dish my darling daughter made for me to put on my desk to hold my Bold!

Even though...there IS NO charging dock for my 8530...AND, this morning I WON THE CHRISTMAS COUNT DOWN APP...HEY, WHY NOT...count me in

It will help me preserve my blackberry charging port longer. No more constant in/out of the usb charger. I hope I win.

This would be so very helpful in our house since there are 4 BlackBerry phone devices in use here!! We could really use the extra battery and the convenience this offers!!

This cradle would save my life. I spend most of my time doing research in my advisor's lab and all of his plugs are always being used by the computers and tools we need.

need to organize all the usb charging wires on my desk + it will facilitate a great clock for my office.

Dear Santa

I have been a very good crackberry head this year. My Torch has been good too. It needs a nice present under the tree and then it would look very nice on my desk.


Oh this would be great cos I use my BB as an alarm clock so having it by my bedside charging like this would be great and to be able to charge a spare battery instead of swapping batteries out to charge like I do right now would be a bonus so hook a sister up!

Wow! I can't even count the ways that this would help me out! I have already bought a seperate car charger other than the car one in case its needed living in Minnesota with 2 feet of snow and below zero temps. We have had our cable, internet and phone go out for hours at a time. We were both very grateful for our berries. However if we would have lost electricity we would have had to venture in the below zero temps to the car and charge it.

I would love this so much and have actually looked at it many times. This would be the PERFECT gift for this Torch Berry girl.

Thanks and Happy Holidays to all!

This would be extremely helpful when I travel. During the days, I am always worried that my battery is going to lose its charge and my spare battery is not fully charged.

This would be a lifesaver for me, just recently I was on my way home from london Ontario and I got caught in a whiteout, it took 3 and a half hours to go 100kms, As the battery on my torch dwindled and died I remembered the days of my 8310 with it's extra battery and external battery charger, when I lived in Toronto and travelled up to 7 hours one way every weekend an extra battery was a life saver, it also was one of my favourite things to flaunt over iPhone users as I always had a fully charged battery ready to go in my wallet., Now with student debt and a crappy job I can't afford to indugle even more than I already have, having upgraded to the torch with its sub par battery life compared to my ol' 9700 PLEASE CRACKBERRY I NEEEEEED THISSS!

I have been looking for a spare battery charger for my 9800 spare battery since it came out. Would be awesome to win this. Good luck to everyone.

I need a nice end table / side dresser phone charger and holder so my phone does not end up on the floor after a full barrage of vibrating alerts from Blackberry Messenger

This cradle with the extra battery charger will help me immensely. I use my Torch all day long. I am a support tech and sometime i am on a confrence call that is real long which drains my battery. If i had a spare charged already i would do a quick swap and keep on trucking........Send it to me.

Since I use my blackberry for my work, school and for my personal life, it never lasts a day. And how frustrating is it when your on your way home from work and need to finish some last tasks and the Torch dies.

So it would be awesome for me to win one!!


My Storm 2 battery is not too hot, would love this to help me out at my desk at work so i can get home with a full battery, thanks CB!

I am currently job hunting and have used my mobile number as my point of contact to ensure never missing a message. Therefore, I find myself frequently having to think about charge times and opportunities. This would make my life.. and job search... a lot easier!

I Could really use this charger as I use my torch as my clock in bedside mode, and would love to have a propper charging pod for it. Please pick me (unless you're saving my game for the playbook draw!)

I recharge my phone at night and this would be perfect for my night stand. Plus I would no longer have to pick up my phone to see what time it is.


SO helpfull when I am in midlle od runnig on my work duties .......

Happy Hollidays....


I charge mine twice a day anymore. This would be a wonderful Christmas gift from Crackberry!

Ok this would benefit me as I use pandora at work all day long. At the end of each day I have to charge my phone on the way back in the car which is a headache.. this would help me keep my battery nice and fresh.

I've been debating the charging pod but it wouldn't work through my case, which it looks like this might. At the very least, the external battery charger would be nice for my spare battery. Using a Bold 9780.

Well at the moment I have no cradle and as a pretty heavy user the cradle would allow me to keep my BB loose, from cables, and juiced form the extra battery slot. A great accessory that I'm hoping will fill my stocking this Christmas!

Santa Kevin, make it so!


This would HELP so much because I have lost cord after cord. I would love to keep it set up in one place for easy access. I am currently using the NOOK cord for charging (yes it works lol)

Since I'm a heavy user of my BB, this would be the perfect accessory for me to insure that I always have a full charge.

This would be perfect for me because as a heavy torch user my battery dies in a matter of hours and im forced to carry an extra battery around with me, However i don't have a spare battery charger! How amazing would it be to have the power of both in a very nice, organized charger

Love to win one of these as I'm always traveling. So it would be nice not to have to charge a battery, replace it, then charge that one. Could get all the charging completed at once.

i'm always at a desk and don't like to mess with having to put this on usb and also who doesn't need an extra bat :)...

this would be great to use at work. I have co-workers that like to charge their phones at work too and there's cords everywhere! It would really be useful for me =D

Being able to charge a spare battery at the same time as the Torch looks great! My current battery lasts only a few hours, so I'd like this charger very much...

This cradle would be great for night time when i use my phone in bedside mode as my only alarm clock , would be nice to just look and not have to reach over and pick it up

We recently lost one of the clocks in our bedroom and as luck would have it - it was the one we look at when we're half asleep in the morning to see what time it is. This stand would replace our missing clock and help us sleep better at night knowing we have an easy way to see what time it is. :)

Im a busy college student and this would help me keep my phone charged and not worry bout losing all these wires to charge it now

This would be great. I have a spare battery charger, but it stays in a bag, so the spare is never charged when I need it. This would keep the spare charger in front of me all the time.

Nice! I'd finally be able to look at the clock on the Torch on my nightstand without having to darn near sit up in bed. :-)

Cradle would be great for my phone in bedside mode at night. Currently the phone lies flat which is a bit less useful.

This would help increase the WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor) on my wife's Bold. The biggest gripe my wife has against her Blackberry is the battery life; especially ever since I was able to get her school email (FirstClass) on the device. She regularly reminds me that her old phone (plain, old Samsung) would lasts four to five days versus the one or two days of the Blackberry. I explain how she uses this one more (email, Google Maps, light web browsing) and the battery life reflects that. However; being the neutered, ahem, I mean; duty-full Husband I am; I accept the blame. ;-p

This is an awesome Storm 2 in almost always running out of juice at the worst possible time and sometimes I miss important messages from my clients and family. This would really help eliminating that from happening.

Having a way to reduce wear and tear on the USB port, and charge my spare battery at the same time - this cradle would make me Tand my Torch) very happy!

This would be a great addition to my Torch 9800.....I would love to win it.


Would love to win this item, I'm like the rest of us crackberry addicts who have a spare battery but no way to charge it! I want this soo bad! Pick me

i have already broken 2 charging cables with my Torch

This would help reduce the error while connecting the device to a charger..

OMG! This would help me tremendously!!! I have to constantly charge a spare battery and just doing so is a major pain in the rear! Having to charge the phone, then the battery, and since the battery life is so short I end up having to use the spare almost every day!!! Having this charger would solve all my issues (almost) as I would just be able to plus everything into the charger every night as if I was just plugging in my phone only!! I would LOOOVE to have this!! If you guys pick me you will be making my life so much easier and save me so much trouble and time! It would be the best XMas gift!!!

This cradle would help me because:

I am too lazy and cheap to buy a second one for the spare battery.

Would love to have a cradle to use at the office, thereby keeping me nice and juiced up all the time. No more phone dying if I go out after work and don't get a chance to charge it up that morning.

This would be great! My battery goes out just before I need to leave the office and have no way of charging my phone so this would solve that! And with an extra battery, my BB would always be fully usable!

Sign me up!! I can really use one on my desk so I can always see it instead of it laying flat and not being able to see the screen.. RULES!!!

This would be great for my office. I was actually carrying my dock back and forth between home and work. I'd love to be able to dock my bb at the office instead of leaving it on the desktop to be knocked over.

My Torch is great, but that is the problem. I am on it so much that battery life is less than perfect.
To have a spare and charger like this would allow me to always know I have juice ready to go.
You never know when I need to get to!!!!!!


Life is busy and I run both my personal and business life from my Torch. That means a lot of power consumption. While I have power cables at my desk, in my car and at home, those are not mobile like a battery. Carrying an extra charged battery would be a lifesaver and the Mobi desktop cradle with spare charger is how it all is made possible... I hope I win one.:)

I would use this a lot. I always seems to get million emails from my profs at school and always seems to be low on batt. It would be great if I can have this for school use. :)

I would use it because in traveling between NY and PA if the battery dies it's great that you have a spare (yay!)...BUT the key thing is recharging so that when you need it again it's there. I would love to be able to just go home and pop in the spare batter versus doing the CB shuffle (no, not crackberry, that's 'charge battery'). I go home with the full one on the phone. At night take that out, leave in a place where i will remember it and charge the dead one. THEN in the morning remember to take out the now fully charged one and put back as the spare. Take the half full one and put on charger while I'm getting dressed for work.
Yes sireebobbo, it would be sooo much better to just have a way to charge them both at the same time.

Now this is a contest I'd love to win. The new Torch would like a cradle in the office to match the one at home.

I hate being at work all day and my torch barely lasting til the end of my shift. An extra battery would last me till I got home in case of emergencies :)

This is me!!! I have a spare battery and change it out mid-day. I either plug it into my car, computer at work or home to recharge the spare. This would be good to do all in one at night.

I use my BB 24/7 for work and home and am always dragging cords and car chargers around with me. This could eliminate all of that and make life simpler! Count me in, thanks.

Having thiis would be great it would help as a stand as i already use my phone as an alarm clock!
this would be great if i could win! :D

Would greatly appreciate the cradle and battery. I'm constantly charging my torch for business and I've never owned the cradle. Win-win situation! Happy Holidays to all and good luck.

With my Blackberry being used more and more, constant Internet access, I'm not making it through nearly half the day.

This would solve that problem, just wake up and take my phone (and spare battery) and plug em' in the same spot when I get home!!

Life is good :-)

This would be great, I'm always on the road and if not in the office. This would be great for transport and dont have to carry around an extra charger with me.

Please send me one. Would be a life safer.


I don't have a good way to charge my extra battery without physically swapping them out. This cradle would certainly solve that problem!

Ohmygoodness, this would be SOOOO very helpful to me!!! Awesome contest, CrackBerry!!! Thanks again!!!!!!!!!

I am constantly changing out my battery,,,, to charge my spare and to switch to my spare. This would take away one of those!!! GREAT!!

Technology at its best. Charge the BB and a spare battery without even plugging into the wall outlet. Wish I thought of that, I would be rich. Since I didn't, I just have to keep working but my BB really keeps me on time.

Are you kidding?? I like this charger even better than other cradles if it allows my blackberry to lay on its side! I would use this charger next to the bed of course so I don't have to get up to see my messages. I'd love one!!

Like Bla1ze, I carry a spare battery because I'm constantly finding that my 9700 is dying on me. With a hundred+ messages a day at work, doing on-site tech support, and personal calls, BBM, SMS, all going through the device, it invariably dies before the end of the day and I'm left charging my battery at my desk and without the device for a couple hours if the spare battery isn't charged.

I have an 8530. And am constantly trying to get a quick charge to either my spare battery or the one in my BB. From running around, taking my kids here and there, using bbm and email and texts to organize outings, pick-ups and baby sitters as well as keeping in touch with co-workers and friends I'm always facing a low battery. Having this docking station would greatly help by being able to keep this or my or regular wall charger @ wrk and one @ home to ensure I don't forget to take it with me when I head out. This would be an awesome win, thanks for the best contest you've offered so far CB!

this would cradle me, I use my CrackBerry so much that I always have it plugged...away with the plug and on with the cradle!! thanks CB

This would be the best accessory for me because I am a power / travel user. I need to be able to charge my spare battery at the same time as I travel to Ethiopia or Argentina (over 8 hrs each flight).

Also, I can't wait to be able to use the cradle to charge my phone as I have a Playbook connected to my Torch at the same time :o)


My Bold 9650 battery dies all the time at school and I never have another battery charged to replace it!

I didn't really need it before but with the battery power drops in os 6 I find myself charging my phone more frequently. This would be awesome for my 9700

This would beamazing for me because I'm a truck driver and I'm constantly carrying goods to different states all day. I never have time to charge my Blackberry when I need it on the go. Especially in winter time when the conditions are rough, a spare battery would be amazing and maybe even help me out in a pinch.

Hi there! I use my BlackBerry for everything (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Mp3, forum chatting etc) daily. I run out of battery faster than anyone else! With this marvelous battery charger, I can say good bye to low or dead battery immediately! Without a doubt, I can be maximizing the usage of my BlackBerry and I am definitely going to boost to all my friends and tell them how great this product is!

It would definitely be the greatest ever Christmas Gift for me if I could win one of this godly product!

Thank you for reading and have a great day!

This cradle would be great to use when I go to Afghanistan. I will be able to keep my phone charged and also have a back-up battery (extra batteries really come in handy over there)!!

Happy Holidays to Everyone :)


this would be a value added addition to keep my BB charged. i have a bad habit - forgetting to have my cell charged for work. this would be a great answer for me or anyone that has the same problem. thanks for the contest !

Pick me! It would be so nice to have a cradle and a slot to charge an extra battery! Even though I never got the last item I "won" on crackberry...

I got through a battery or 2 a day as it is...having an this cradle with an extra battery would make life easier and more professional at the office

I would love to have this. I just got my Torch and I would love to have this one at home and keep the other charger at my desk. Send one my way! :)

Wow,I need one of these big time. I just don't have the funds to buy one. If there is a santa clause, I hope he drops one of these chargers under my tree!

I would love of these cradles. I have two batteries and keep them both charged is quite difficult without a spare battery charger. This would be a perfect item to have on my desk to display my Torch, charge it and its spare battery.

Would love to win it!

Sweet, I just bought a spare battery having a way to charge it, aside from physically being in the Torch, would be fantastic and extremely helpful.

This would be great to have at the office, I use my BB so much during the day, I can easily go through more than 1 battery. With the nature of my job, I can't sit and wait at my desk for my phone to charge either.

This an awesome contest. Between my wife and I we both can use this and it would look so much better then a wire hanging around.

This would help keep my BlackBerry charged at my desk so i don't have to worry about a dead battery later in the evening.

Finally an extremely handy bit of kit that would keep me charged up when travelling away from a power point!!!!!

Yes please.

I have been thinking about a getting a cradle for a while now since my Storm2 often drains pretty quickly throughout the day. I am currently planning my wedding and was heading to a vendor meeting with my fiance. I was using Google maps on my phone to lead the way when all of a sudden it decided to reboot. When it powered up, the battery had drained COMPLETELY and the radio turned off. Luckily we were close and able to find our way - but otherwise, we would have been lost. A spare fully charged battery would have been ideal in that situation.


dayum i need 1 of these i got my bb plus car charger and 4 batteries and no way to charge them but takiing out the battery 1 at a time and its time consuming and annoying to keep having to reset my phone to switch that battery

I definitely want this under my X-Mas tree but winning it would be sweeter. Always seem to either have lots of juice left in the battery or just barely enough survive my commute home.This would be awesome.

I would love this! I keep dropping my phone when I try to charge it.
Thanks for all of the great contests this year Crackberry!
