    Found this today at my local Microsoft Store for $20. Supposedly they just received them in-store. Works perfectly for supporting the Band 2 whilst charging it at the same time. The charger fits perfectly into the slot on the back. Once the charger is fitted, you can easily feed the cable through the base and it will hold the cable in place. Very sturdy and well constructed. Works with all three sizes of the Band 2.

    tangledW and Captain_Eric like this.

    Thanks for the review. I saw the same product today at my Microsoft Store as well. Almost pick up the item myself. But I was hesitant to pay $20 for what is basically a stand. I read the box carefully and saw that it doesn't come with the magnetic charger itself. This means that you're not getting a stand and charger cable for $20. You basically use your existing charger cable with it. The box bill this as some sort of cable management system.

    I found this while trying to google for the LoyalStar stand. Its weird that its buried in an Xbox subdomain. But at least it looks like you can order it online:

    Nice. $20 does seem a bit steep but I'll probably pay it. :/

    No cable and it's $20 ? Crap, someone scan it with a 3D printer and you can make them for under $3-5 each...

    $24.99 with a cable would be perfect...sigh...

    It's not as simple as that (read D. Rubino's review), the stand has weight & rubber grip so it doesn't fall all over the place like the 3D printed one for the original Band and it has magnets that hold the charger in better. Plus, it's a non-essential accessory for a niche device from a 3rd party manufacturer.

    $20 isn't that bad, if you think it is then it's obviously not something you need. $24.99 with a charger is a little ridiculous when the charger itself is $19.99.

    I feel like lots of people pay 20 dollars for cell phone cases/stands. Why is 20 for a stand for the Band too expensive?

    I charge mine about 15-20 minutes twice a day (take two showers) so I guess justifying a $20 stand for such little time is difficult.

    One question: Is it easier to charge with the stand in terms of connecting the power cable? The new power connector is harder to attach than it was with the first band. If it is quicker to attach the power cable with the stand (I don't see how it would be) then perhaps it is worth the cost.
