I found a cheap one online while looking for a portable charger. I found this one on amazon and found out that Wal-Mart actually sells it for really cheap.
Walmart.com: Music Power Encore Dual USB Port Charger and Extended Rechargeable Battery for iPod and MP3 Players: Batteries
There's the link to it, once it's in stock I will be sure to pick one up and let everyone know if it's any good or not. All reviews I have read on it have seem to be pretty decent.
I have a Solio solar charger. It works fine if you plug it into the wall, but a total POS when you leave it to solar charge. Takes forever on a sunny day, doesn't charge for $hit on a cloudy day. You wind up carrying around an extra cable to charge a solar powered device. Oh, and using your window to charge on a plane? The Solio is designed to stick on a window. You know what they call people who stick electronic devices on a window at 30k feet? Terrorists
Your insistence on drawing attention to YOUR post puts me in mind of a kindergarten child with socialization difficulties.
It's ME! It's all about ME!
I found an external battery that seems to be better than all others on the market, can be charged by your car, standard wall socket, AND it has the capability to be charged by the sun. It also gets better reviews that the other external batteries on the market.
So what if it has less capacity than the Zagg charger? It is smaller so it is easier to carrier around (flying comes to mind) and at least it actually works. And really, you're going to argue over $14 comparing something that is known to work and something that doesn't have a good track record? What more do you want?
This is an excellent find for those that might like camping/hiking or live where hurricanes frequent. I remember not having power for a while after hurricanse Katrina came through. We were fortunate enough to have a generator I could plug my cell phone into.
Something like this would be an excellent investment.
