Sonofabrick.... I was just looking @ my 6700 cradle last night thinking, "I wonder if the TP2 will fit this...."

LOL! Seems like we all had the same thought. And truth be told, I tried it last week & when it didn't fit, I left it alone. But, somehow when I looked at the darn thing this morning next to the fingernail clipers on my night stand, I found inspiration!!! One snip later, lots of money saved!

Re: Using XV6700 cradle with TP2

Alright, i tried scoring & cutting the acrylic frame with a pair of scissors. It shreaded the edges. Probably need a Dremmel or some type of precision rotatry cutter to get clean edges. I'll see what other plastics are available @ the hobby store . . . Might even just use the original battery doory from the 6700 and trim it!!! Hmmmm....

Re: Using XV6700 cradle with TP2

Lol, I did this as well a few days after I got my TP2 but with the Touch PRO desktop charger...I got a pair of snips & cut out the right side of the charger tray insert (I'm not sure but I believe I used the largest tray insert) & use the piece I cut out as a support for the back of the device which I attached to the cradle by super gluing it. Not as clean as yours but it works well... You can also remove the tray insert & charge your TP2 that way but you have no support... pics below

My Modified Cradle

Okay. So, I wasn't having much luck trimming the acrylic frame with the scissors. So, I had an old plastic CD case laying around. Its just sturdy enough to support the phone. And left me with plenty of plastic to play with.

Ultimately, I ended up with a t-section piece and slightly folded the bottom. Then I bent the arms in, probably more for effect than support. The Gorilla Glue is drying kinda crudely. But, hey, hopefully it will work. Letting it dry over night. If it fails, hey, I'll scrape it off & try another approach.

Picture attached below.

Re: Using XV6700 cradle with TP2

Wow that is hideous... but if it saves me $30 I'm all in! Anyone know if the TP2 battery can be charged in this charger or it doesn't fit?
