Does anybody use an external battery charger? What is the best on the market?
I have a pack made by Energizer that holds enough juice for 4-5 full charges on my RAZR. It comes with a bunch of adapters for various devices, but it also has a usb port that I plug the RAZR cable into. I have used it on my OG droid and friend's phones of various models and it always works. A bit pricey, but it has held up for over a year.
The Energizer XP4001 charges my Razr 1 and a half times.

I use the 3000mAh version here: myCharge | Universal extended batteries
Has built in connectors for iDevices and Micro-USB, so no need to carry a cable around with you. Can charge two Micro-USB devices at the same time.
I have CDO. It's like OCD except the letters are in alphabetical order, as they should be.
Does anybody know if my droid razr would safely handle a battery with 4.8V or 5.8V with maximum current output of 880mA?
Also, I'm interested on buying a solar charger. The one I've got my eyes on delivers a steady (according some users) voltage of 5.25V aprox. and maximum current of 700mA aprox. Does de droid razr handles it well/safely?
Thank you all!
Stay within the tolerance ranges specified on the stock charger. Using a higher voltage (5.8V) than the device was spec'd for (5.0V as spec'd + or - 5%, or between about 4.75V and 5.25V), could damage the charging circuit and potentially disrupt the protection circuitry designed to prevent overcharging of the battery. This is dangerous as an overcharged Lithium Ion battery can go onto a runaway state and explode producing extremely high temperature flames (think torch).
Also, charging a Lithium Ion battery faster than was intended (750mAh add spec'd), will shorten the battery's lifespan.
You are always best staying with the original manufacturers' chargers for the utmost in safety and battery life.
