Cool BP 4L USB Charger

What I do not like on e90 is the lackof docking and most of all a 2-nd battery charging option.
I have found something interesting that states The BP 4L can be charged using USB.
FOr me it looks OK and the price is lower than a 2-nd battery.

Have anyone try this type of device.

Are in the world other options?

Waiting for your oppinion...

I bought a version of this charger that charges via the phone (rather than taking the battery out). It is too slow to be of any use to me. The phone claims it is charging but after 4 hours the battery level has not gone up as displayed on the phone and I have tried it a few times.

As a follow up I have bought a different USB phone charger for about 4.50 and will let you know how well it works. It claims it has a charge current of 500mA (max USB available) so in theory with right laptop should charge from flat in a little over 3 hours.

I just bought a docking station/cradle for my E90, it also has a place for a 2nd battery. But I don't understand the usage of a 2nd battery, unless you aren't able to charge your phone for a week...

The think I bought is this:

When you will surf the web more than 3 hours a day and Send and receive e-mail every 15 minutes you will understand the need for a 2-nd battery 100% charded and ready to run

Thank you all for posting your opinion.

I`ll go for this charger and battery and will let you know if worth a try or not.

Regards,

Eventually got the USB charger lead. It does charge the E90 in about the right time (3-4) hours but the E90 never says the battery is charged, ie the battery symbol always fills. Connecting to the Nokia charger and the battery symbol displays static and full.
