Lightbulb Using XV6700 cradle with TP2

For those who still have their cradle from their XV6700, you can use it for your TP2 with a slight modification!

-- The mini usb jack on the cradle aligns with both the XV6700 & the TP2. The problem is that little nub to teh right that goes into the 2.5mm headphone jack. It's a little off for the TP2 & doesn't allow the phone to be seated in the cradle.
-- SO, take a wire cutter, fingernail cliper, pair of scissors, WHATEVER you have and cut off that little nub!

Voila! The TP2 now snaps right into the cradle & charges or syncs like it should! And, you can still drop the XV6700 in there as you always have. That little nub was just an added measure of support for the phone & holds no other functionality.

I don't have pics of mine cradle, as I'm work right now. But, I woke up this morning, made the mod, tested it myself as I ran out the door for work. It works perfectly! AND you can get these chargers all over the web for $5!!!

I didn't get a chance to check and see is if the actual battery fits in the spare battery slot on the backside. I'll check this evening. But, if anyone reading this can check & post their findings, that would be helpful.

I've attached a stock image to show the nub that show be removed.

Re: Using XV6700 cradle with TP2

Great mod!
Even though I never used my XV6700 cradle, I kept it around for some reason.

Hording FTW!


I will try this tonight and post my results!


Thanks aamon17!

Re: Using XV6700 cradle with TP2

how well does the TP2 stand up in the cradle? I always feer that it will snap the USB connector in the phone (that was the problem with the xv6700, phone was basically supported by the USB connector).

Thanks for the mod tip. I have 2 left over 6700 cradles so might just have to mod one and use it again.

LOL @ hording! Me too! . . . Now that I think about it, I may Gorilla Glue a piece of sturdy plastic to the inside/back part of the cradle to support the taller phone better. My initial thought to trim down an old acrylic 2.5x3.5 picture frame that's sitting on my desk right now! It should work like a charm. you can get them at any Walgreens for $2!

We were typing at the same time! It does stand up. But, it's more wobbly that the XV6700 because it's taller. See my other post about glueing a piece of acryllic to it!

Any other ideas are welcomed!

Great idea about the frame. I think I will try this with mine too.

Re: Using XV6700 cradle with TP2

The other item that I did with my 6700 cradle was took it apart and cut off the nub and replaced it with a true 2.5mm headphone connector. It was a 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter that I put in so when I cradled my 6700, I had a head phone jack at the side of the cradle. Then plugged in my standard 3.5mm head phones to it. Looked a little ugly but worked well.
Thinking about modding the cradle again but using a 3.5mm extender since I don't need to adpat. But will have to put in the plastic frame mentioned above to help hold the TP2 more stable.

Hillarious! Did you do anything to support the back of the phone?
