    Default $20 Desktop charger for Galaxy Nexus (pics)

    Bought an inexpensive desktop dock on Amazon for my Galaxy Nexus. Received it today.

    *The Good:*

    It was $20
    Comes with a USB transfer cable as well as a 1.5A wall charger.
    Removable inner casing to allow docking with a case on (at least in the description)
    Spare battery charger port in back

    *The Bad:*
    Cannot dock my phone with either case on it. Must be naked.
    Spare battery port does not work with Verizon battery
    No audio port for 3.5mm out

    If you have a Verizon Galaxy Nexus, it is useful only as a desktop charging/syncing dock as long as you're not using a case.

    For $20 it's fine, but I'm a bit disappointed that it didn't work with a case and that the spare battery slot is useless to me.

    Anyway, here's the Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/RND-Power-Solu...idcentral00-20

    I almost went with that one but decided to stick with the Seidio. The Seidio Innodock JR works with cases and extended batteries.

    It's made for Seidio cases but works pretty much with any case since the Seidio cases are kind of bulky.

    It does detach but is still too snug to use with my Qbits or Diztronics cases.
