Picking out accessories for my Motorola Droid 2 is almost as exciting as the device itself or the applications that it will be running. The Motorola Multimedia Desktop Charger is an amazing accessory, and a must-have for everyone that owns this device. How many times have you sat down at your desk, looked around for your charger, only to realize the cable has dropped behind the desk or become buried under all your paperwork? Well, fear no longer, let's take a look at this unit, and find out exactly why it is a must have for everyone.
The main unit itself is rather basic, it has a micro USB jack in the back which you can plug a USB cable into for use with a computer, or you can use your standard wall charger. This leads me to my first mini complaint about the unit, actually one of my only, there is no cable supplied with this unit, so you will need to utilize one of your existing cables, and for most of us geeks that is no issue, but not everyone has one to spare. The location where the phone actually docks contains a black plastic guide that holds the phone in an upright position and helps when placing the device in the dock, as it only fits one way. The bottom of the dock has two rubber strips which help hold the dock in place, so if you attempt to place the device in one handed the dock will not slide away, this definitely helps to make sure your dock is always in the same place you left it.
Once the phone is docked you will see the dock mode appear on the phone, and having come from the OG Droid, the improvement on the Droid 2 was warmly welcomed. The dock mode will show you the time, date, as well as a charging indicator and will allow you to easily toggle your alarms from one simple click. For those who may use this as a bedside dock there is a toggle that will control screen brightness so it doesn't keep you up all night, and you can also turn the screen off completely if that is preferred. On the Droid 2, one of my favorite features is that you can now customize what icons you want to appear on the bottom of the dock, which allow one click easy access to those.
Overall this particular accessory is one that just about anyone can find a great use for. Whether you want a simple place to dock your phone in your office, want to use your device as a clock in your bedroom, or just simply like to have any and every accessory available for your device this is for you. For only $24.95 in the Android Central Store, this accessory is one that you will definitely want to place your order on now before the sale ends!
