Hey

Has anyone brought one of these chinese knock off charging dock. My unit didnt come with one so I am considering to go for one. Most of these are under $10.

something like the first one.

but i really wonder WHY it does that!

I mean... i used the original Sony Wallcharger! 1.5A and just pluged it (with the sony cable) in the back of the charger!
Then the phone wen't out of battery and died... restartet after 5 minutes, and then i booted into the OS.

Thats the only reason i can imagine why it would charge so slowy. i mean.. i used exact that same wall charger via microUSB and it worked fast and fine!

i mean, how the hell would they limit the Ampere flowing trough the dock ? some included resistors?
If i have to much time i'll try and open it. but i could swear the cheapest way would be a simple (two...) from the microUSB port to the magnets. And this is chinaware! gotta be the cheapest way!
