    Anyone know when these will be available?

    Trying to decide whether or not to split up an order from the PreCentral store that I made over a week ago. The order is just sitting there until the charger can ship.

    Also ordered:

    Arkon CM920 Gooseneck Mount & Universal Holder for Palm Pre - which has sold out while I was waiting on the spare battery charger

    Palm Standard Battery for Pre - 17% more wasn't enough to make me go for the SEIDO

    I got a Palm spare battery charger like over 3 weeks ago through palm.com.

    If you don't mind me asking, what did you pay? do you like it?

    I had a docking station with compartment to charge a spare on my 700p but assume there won't be anything similar for the Pre given the design. Otherwise I would probably wait for that.

    standalone spare battery charger (generic) is $6 shipped off of Ebay:

    USB Wall Battery Charger for Palm Centro 690 - eBay (item 260455187155 end time Aug-28-09 06:00:00 PDT)

    Have two of these, they work great. Charge rate is only like 350-400ma though so it is not a "fast" charger.

    that charger works with the Pre battery? the size of the pre battery the same as the Treo 700? i haven't taken mine out yet - afraid to crack that case open!

    Have you tried asking the store? They'll probably have a better idea than anyone here.

    not sure if you were directing that to me - i asked the other poster because he has the charger and can himself verify whether the battery fits or not.

    It indeed works with the Pre battery, as we've discovered on the forums that the Pre battery is the same as the Centro battery btw.

    Im using several Centro batteries without any issue at all.

    You can get them new for $5 shipped via Ebay

    Great info about the Centro batteries. May have to pick up a few.
    Thanks!

    I'm using the Mobi Charger that is on PreCentral store. It's connects and charges the PRE via USB with Media and USB Drive modes available. And also charges and extra PRE/ Treo/Centro battery. The extra battery charges alittle slow but it gets the job done. Also if you buy a Seidio battery the extra battery slot will be a tight fill for them. The Palm stock batteries fit excellently!!
