Default Capdase Mobile Accessories - Pathetic

I bought a couple of Capdase products

1) Car Charger
2) Mobile Phone Mount

The Car Charger usb slot gave up on me within the 1st week. So I complained to the shop from where I got it and it was taken back - it would be sent back to the company for studying why it happened. I would be getting a replacement or the same piece repaired. After 10 days I got a new one, which again has broken down on me within a couple of months. I chose this particular model because it had 2 USB slots and a slot for another charger to be plugged in.

The mount worked well for about 8 months and gave up on me yesterday. It slides on one side only, the other side is stuck ! I paid 750 bucks for this !

Though I can still use both products but its not a nice feeling using them the way I do.

NC, I was tempted to pick up one, but found the prices in US quite less compared to prices here. And so dropped it. Now it looks I did the right thing on this one.

I generally catch up on reviews on Amazon before buying stuff. Helps

I have same mobile mount and it's working good since last 4 months. I am afraid now.
capdase is considered to be a good company.

My capdase case that came free with my Nokia 701 broke within two days. The phone was about to fall off when I noticed the tab almost broken. The other tab has a crack.

I accepted Capdase cover for 701 because the same branded leather cover did duty for my Nokia N81 for two years.Now, I'm back with a 'free' replacement cover (Cellphone pouch).

F.Y.I. The market is flooded with FAKE CAPDASE mobile phone covers. The covers are very well finished and the moulding/printing is almost as good as original. Even the packaging is fantastic! So buyer beware!

They are selling for Rs. 70 to Rs. 120 here in Kolkata.

You are right but, in my case I got an original one, which had all the packing & even a warranty card signed by the Nokia Priority dealer. When I went to return it, I came to know that it was worth 890 Rs. & that they could provide me with a replacement. I politely refused & purchased a headset for the price differential instead.

Since it is dead ,why not open it and get us a pic of that. The circuitry must be very easy and simple to fix. 13v to 5 v Dc must be a simple Ic or resistor without a heat sink hence the early failure or without shortcircuit or overheating safety.

the USB slots are broken, the circuitry is intact. It still charges but I cannot plug in any USB device.
