I just confirmed with Hifiman.
With a ":(", they told me that this does not come with the charger (which is the adapter that we have). It's just a dock, which must be plugged into the charger.
In short you can only charge either this or the HM901 at the same time. You cannot charge both.
Looks like you can buy the cradle, the battery, and/or the charger module individually. If you want to charge a battery outside of the 901, you would just need the cradle, and use your own battery and charger. If you want a spare battery for longer play-time, you would buy the cradle and an additional battery and use your charger. You just have to make sure that one is charged while the other one is charging.
I suppose you could buy the battery, charger, and cradle, and be able to charge them both at the same time - but how often would that be necessary? I would imagine that these batteries require "smart" charging, and the current charging unit is probably not equipped to monitor 2 batteries at the same time and adjust their charging cycles accordingly - we're talking a small, specialist audio company, not HP, Canon, Nikon, etc......
I'd love a pmp the size of a credit card, with a 9" screen, 6 month battery life, able to drive 86 dB speakers, 1 Tbyte of storage, DSP eq of actual in-ear response with specific iems, thought-control, and at a retail price of $99.99
sorry for the rant. It's nice to wish and want - let's try to be a bit more realistic..... now, where's my credit card for that cradle and battery....
Point taken. I was just being a bit frisky when I typed it. I guess your options would be two chargers, or one charger, one cradle, and 3 batteries, and charge them sequentially. I am not sure what specific circuitry a dual charger would require, and how much it would cost. It's not that I don;t see the point of it, but it might not cost less than 2 of the standard ones.
