HTC Thunderbolt Inductive Charging Battery Cover Makes Appearance on Verizon Site

Back before the Thunderbolt launched, there was talk of an inductive battery cover that would allow you to charge the device using LG’s charging pad, but once it actually hit stores, was impossible to find.  That was until now…sort of.  Spotted last night on Verizon’s accessory site, the landing page for the battery cover went live with a price of $39.99 – unfortunately, it wouldn’t let you purchase it and has since been removed.  Same thing sort of goes for the multimedia dock which was all over the place pre-launch and has yet to go on sale anywhere in almost a month.

Let’s get it together Big Red, some of us love accessories for our new toys.

    Wow,the oakleys sunglasses shop online,there are many replica oakleys,I offten buy cheap oakleys on the shop.

  • Dock

    I’d get it if it there was a car dock associated with it. I don’t like the current car dock. You have to jam the phone in pretty hard to get the car panel to activate. It’s also hard to take out.

    Charging mat tech is still very early in its development but within a few years it will e commonplace. Here’s to early adopters.

    they probably want you to buy them at the local retailers so the salespeople get the commissions. they get squat for a $500 device but a commission for every accessory. They make more on selling you a screen protector than the phone itself.

    it would be nice for those of us that have the device to actually get the things that work with the phone and could take advantage of all of there features for the thunderbolt

    verizon is really beginning to disappoint me

    • Test

      I don’t think it is Verizon’s fault. HTC really sucks on providing accessories to their phones… Look the line of accessories of Motorola at Verizon store!!! Is not the first time HTC does that! It make me think a lot before buying another HTC branded phone…

        I agree, I love HTC but they do suck on releasing accessories for our shinny toys!!! I want my Media Dock, Wireless charging cover and what ever ells!!!

    Make one the fits into the original body of the phone then come back to me.

    • http://twitter.com/dougedwards9844 Doug Edwards

      that is what im talking about or make a set of cases and car dock that fits it with the extended batt and this wireless charge back

    Can’t use any of the case covers with that though. A bit of a problem.

      Look at it as an excuse to let your Tbolt hang out in the nude.

  • Mr.Joe

    Inductive Charging is cool and all, but I’ll wait for it to get less proprietary.
