    I'm a college student, so i tend to do a lot of walking around. I'm also a nerd so i do a lot on my droid. Basically i need a portable charger or im gonna have to get a new phone...(which would suck) i get like 7 hours on a good day(which im sure is normal), im always doing something on my droid.... but i need it to last the second half of the day. (so i can actually text people when they are awake). I have been looking at some portable chargers and im kinda freaked out (so many!)
    I first contemplated the solar ones... but i think my nerdness level isnt that high yet (and the fact that it takes like all day to get a charge)
    Ive looked at many, but have decided it would be way more useful if i carried around a portable battery. (as it would also be useful to charge other things because i often forget to charge my *non ipod* mp3 player which does last all day on a charge)
    So far i'm looking at the "Energizer energi to go xp8000" as it looks like it would fit into my cargo pocket and supply's a lot of power. My big question here is has anyone tried this product out with the droid? does it include the droids "tip"? i cant find a list of the tips provided on the site...
    And just as a side note to anyone who happens to leave me a suggestion to a different product: I am limited by the fact that i do not have a Credit Card so i have no online buying abilities. I live around Arizona State University so its gonna have to be a walmart, radioshack, costco, bestbuy, kmart etc.. stores that i can walk in to. *not amazon nor any other online site.
    Thank you in advance, Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Why don't you just get an extra battery?

    Here are my suggestions: root and setup profiles so you can underclock it while the screen is off, get an extended and/or extra battery, carry around a charger or get disposable battery packs.

    Im a college student also (at Rutgers University in NJ) and I always carry around my charger with me since Im almost always near an ac outlet or a computer. I have three chargers: one for at home thats connected to the multimedia dock, one in car for that dock and one I carry around in my bag. I also have it underclocked to 250-500 when its sleeping.

    This is exactly what I'm looking for. I just need to buy it..... which it doesn't look like anybody carries it. Energi to go at least is at costco,

    and to garrett with the goodhope, I actually went into walmart to find this beast, they didn't have it... then I researched more. The battery is okay but Ima going to get some zing to my buck.
    Brando , I'm running bbv4 froyo. I used to do setcpu and whatnot when i had UD but I seem to be getting a battery drain with it in froyo.(my phones emo sometimes I guess lol)
    Slomox: extra droid battery is a great idea but I have a problem, myphone is encased in a plastic black tough thing and getting it off to change the battery would be way too much hassel. I don't think the makers of it were thinking about people taking it off without destroying it...
    Anyone tryout the energi thing?

    I know you said you don't have a credit card but on this site you can pay for a paypal account which all paypal requires is you have a checking account. This is a solar charger at the following link I don't have it but I am considering getting it:Mobile Phone Solar Charger

    If you don't have a checking account then just disregard this. Hope it helps any:)

    extra battery would seem like the easiest solution if you ask me.

    i wouldn't wanna be carrying a solar charger the whole day.

    A manager at Verizon suggested Advanced Task Killer, A free ap in the market. I tell you, it makes all the difference in the world in your battery drain.
