Want to win a BlackBerry J-Series Extra Battery Charger Bundle for the Bold 9900 from CrackBerry.com? Keep reading for contest details.
I finally got myself a Bold 9900 a few weeks ago, and to my surprise (as with many others) the battery life didn't stand up to what I am used to with BlackBerry. On the plus side, BlackBerry users can always carry an extra battery and swap it out when necessary. But sometimes just getting an extra battery isn't enough. You would have to charge both batteries via your BlackBerry, and that could be time consuming and annoying. And frankly, I am too lazy for that. So instead of just grabbing an extra battery, I decided to go with the BlackBerry J-Series Extra Battery Charger Bundle, which includes a standalone battery charger. It was a wise decision.
In the Box
As you would expect, this bundle comes with a standard JM1 battery and charging case. But as a nice added bonus, it also comes with a Micro-USB Y-Cable, allowing you too charge 2 devices from one cord. This, to me, makes the purchase worthwhile. I set it up next to my bed, where I normally charge my BlackBerry. And there is no need to take up anymore precious outlets to charge both my BlackBerry and my spare battery. One cord charges both, simultaneously. May not seem like a huge deal, but it makes my life easier, and supports my laziness.
Other Accessories to Compliment the BundleAs I said, I use this charging bundle at next to my bed where I normally charge my BlackBerry. But I have found it equally as useful at my desk, paired with my BlackBerry Bold 9000 Charging Pod. I am probably in my office more than my bed, and together they make for a perfect charging combo. Maybe I will just buy another charging bundle and keep one at both my bed, and my desk.

Final ThoughtsOverall, this is a great buy for those who feel that their 9900 just doesn't hold enough charge, or for those like me, who are deathly afraid of their BlackBerry running out of juice. The included Y-Cable makes charging 2 batteries very convenient, and a great way to ensure your BlackBerry has plenty of power for the upcoming day(s).
