    Battery Charger?

    So I have been seeing these little battery powered chargers inside store shelves. Pretty much these devices are a small plastic housing with a little battery cover, and inside there is a slot for two AA batteries. My questions are as follow. What is the proper term for these devices? And do they actually give a charge to the battery of my droid? Or will it only keep it from draining the battery and instead use the AA battery supply? I travel into very rural areas and sometimes I am away fro,m an outlet for days. This would be very nice if these portable battery supplied charger things would fit my need.

    Any thoughts fellas?

    THe ones which take AA's will not provide much power I use a Tekkon mp1800 and it will charge the phone 1.5-2x and will work with almost any USB device (it includes many different tips). It actually just has a USB port that provides power thus is standard and you can use your USB data cable to charge your phone. To charge the battery in the mp1800 you need to connect it with a mini USB. Note you need a high current source to charge it. My laptop works fine or power cube (110 vac to 5 volt usb) from my Nano (ipod). They say you need to be able to provide 1 amp to charge it.


    Tekkeon - Rechargeable battery, Mobile Power, TekCharge MP1550, TekCharge MP1800, reusable emergency battery, emergency power, myPower ALL, myPower for iPod, myPower GO, myCharger

    I'm not sure how many times the battery chargers will recharge the Droid, but another alternative is simply to buy a couple of extra Droid batteries. On Amazon they routinely sell for less than $10.

    I just ordered two battery chargers for my extra batteries from this person: Wall Charger FOR MOTOROLA DROID BP6X A855 CLIQ MB200 - eBay (item 270569724858 end time Jun-24-10 23:44:17 PDT)

    I have not received them yet, they are specifically for Motorola and the vendor has a good record.

    Talking

    Hey everyone, thanks for the great feedback. I do not travel via car, I'm actually living all over america. I sleep in abandoned houses, on beaches, under bridges and in boxcars. Long story short I'm traveling the country by thumb and freight train. I live out of my backpack, and the only bill that I have is my phone bill. Sometimes I have to go two days or even three days without a charge. I go to and fro the countryside as I please, but the only problem is my lack of power. What I was thinking about doing was getting one of those AA battery chargers, then get one of those AA batter to micro usb chargers. I just wanted to know how others did without constant access to power. Oftentime I will be hitchhiking and the driver willhave a car charger and offers me a breif charge. I am going to invest in a car charger and I was trying to determine if there was a better option out there for me. I saw one of those AA battery to Micro Usb things on eba for 26 bucks. But if I could buy a dock that could charge up two or three batteries I would be set.
