    Every iPhone docking cradle I find will charge and sync when connected via the USB cable to a PC or will charge when the USB cable is connected to an AC adapter. This means that I have to swap the cable from the PC to the adapter constantly.

    What I want is a docking cradle with BOTH a USB cable for syncing and an AC plug for charging. So I can drop my iPhone into the cradle when I come home to start charging it. Then when I start up my PC, it can sync as well without having the swap the USB cable.

    Does such a docking cradle exist? I have an iPhone 4 with a Speck case.

    When you iPhone is syncing, it is charging. So, if you have a dock that plugs directly into the computer via USB, (Apple's iPhone 4 Dock), its doing both at the same time.

    If this isn't what your getting at I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help!

    I think he's looking for something that will still charge his phone when his computer is turned off, as the USB port doesn't provide any power in that state.

    Only thing I can think of is if you have a powered USB hub.

    rliebert -that's exactly what I mean. A powered USB hub...hmmm, hadn't thought of that one. I think it might work. I'll try it. Thanks!
