I want something that will charge my phone, hold it still and visible while I drive and not be stuck on the window.

What I am worried about is

if I get the car charger cradle and have the iphone plugged in, always charging when in the cradle, will this hurt the battery at all ?
(will it shorten the battery life?)

Don't know of any in NZ that will stick it to the windscreen. I use this one: http://www.dse.co.nz/dse.shop/4bbeed1c02ebe2622740c0a87f3b06fc/Product/View/C0780

In terms of your battery, charging it whenever you can will as far as im aware slightly reduce the life of the battery but i don't think its major, i don't know much about this side of things so im sure someone else can give more info on this.

spent the weekend checking out phone holder.
consideration :
I have a Iskin on my iphone so the stand has to be able to fit the case as well
I wanted a charger as well as a holder
I prefer it not to be attached to the window

I actually bought a allkit II for $50

Its a stand, charger and has a usb port on the side also a FM tuner not that I will be using that.

It is very well made and fits the phone with case perfectly
It does not wobble, and I like my phone down at that level not on the screen.


here is the one I bought. actually from this guy lol
