Member Reviews: Cover-Mate Desktop Cradle

Whenever we can, usually in the weekend, we showcase a tech hardware related review submitted by a member in our forums. Remember that we consider all reviews that are submitted here.

If you've recently bought a new gadget and you're impressed, or even disappointed by it let the community know by submitting a review about it; your review might make the front page next week! The more complex the review is, the more likely it will be selected.

This week we've chosen a review by Nexus18 who takes a look at the Cover-Mate Desktop Cradle.


Once again, thanks to Mobile-Fun for providing me with the Cover-Mate desktop cradle for the HTC One S to review.

They have a huge range of desktop cradles for a whole lot of mobiles, so be sure to have a look to see if there is a nice cradle/desk stand for your mobile.

Their customer service is top quality, especially delivery times, dispatched on Thursday July 5th around 16:00 via Royal Mail First Class and received the next day around 10:30, every other etailer using the same shipping method always takes at least 2 days to get here.


The dock arrived in a standard see through rectangular plastic box. Be very careful when opening the package and removing the card board box containing the cradle though, as I managed to cut my finger on the relatively sharp corners of the plastic box.

Within the box, we are supplied with the following:

  • User Manual
  • Cradle
  • USB Cable

A Look at the Cover-Mate Desktop Cradle:

Lets take a look at the features of this cradle first:

  • Syncs and charges your device at the same time
  • Allows horizontal viewing media
  • Stylish black finish
  • Net Weight: 90g
  • Dimension: 140 x 50 x 30 mm
  • Input: DC 5V 500mA
  • Output: DC 5V 500mA
  • Removable Insert to allow mobiles with a case attached to be docked as well

One of the features stated on Mobile-Fun's product description page is the following:

  • LED light indicator

However, there is no LED light indicator on the cradle. Not that it is needed for the One S as it already has a notification LED, which is orange when charging.
