For those of you that have them... I have a question.

Is the USB micro connector in them the same as a standard micro USB cable? Or are they designed differently to minimize the insertion force that is typical of micro USB connectors.

I ask as if they are simply the same, it seems likely that a lot of stress can be put on the phone's port unless you are very careful when inserting and removing.

I have the Motorola PowerDock made by Griffin. Both the rear and the top are standard micro USB ports; however, the plug on the top that connects directly to the phone in the dock is on a pivot so the stress is minimal if any.
