Desktop Dock / charger
Well, I wrote nice "review" in this edited post, but whatever was the reason, the xda website was "unavailable" when I click save - and now it is gone, damn!
I really don't feel like typing it all again, sorry. Here's the gist of it: IT WORKS.
"USB Cradle Dock Battery Charger For HTC Sensation" for MyTouch 4G Slide
(incl. free shipping from Hong Kong)
Store: just do ebay search, tons of different sellers have it
Comes with standalone charger (AC 100-240V, DC 5V 1A, cable with standard microUSB plug - all specs same as HTC's original charger).
The USB cable I am using to charge it from my own charger (as seen in my photos) is cradle's own cable that's permanently attached to the back.
The charging light is one of those horribly bright blue LEDs (what happened to the nice and subtle green LEDs? It seems like they don't make them anymore
). I have already cover it with piece of black electrical tape, otherwise it would lit half of my bedroom at night...

It is sold as dock for HTC Sensation, but obviously it was manufactured for ancient by now HTC Titan!
Standalone Charger: (comes with it)
(notice how twisted is the cable that it bends like this on it's own - that's why mine arrived d.o.a); below close up of the bend spot where it is broken (probably)
Although my set came with broken charger, I have tested it with my original HTC charger and cable plugged into micro-USB rear port of the dock, and it works (it is charging the phone), same as the dock's built-in USB "data" cable attached on the back. Despite seler's description on ebay, both can be used to charge our phone.
Also note that i.e. "my" seller doesn't say anything about the charger.
His description states as follows:
- 1x USB Cradle Dock Battery Charger
(confusing, isn't it? I was under impression that it does NOT come with charger until I emailed the seller)
And since the USB cable itself can be used for charging too, I am thinking about buying another one and using it as CAR DOCK (holder) in my car. All it needs is adding few thin rubber strips (so the phone won't rattle when driving) and maybe mounting it on my dashboard anti-slippery mat or using sometghing to prevent sliding, it would nicely compliment my wireless FM transmitter plug (I wrote about it in other thread)
GOOD PRODUCT, GOOD QUALITY DOCK, EXCELLENT PRICE!
(even though my charger is d.o.a it is still good deal)
