Does anyone use one of these. I think i may get one to just throw in my car for when my cell is getting low. They just use a single aa battery. seem to be like 5 bucks online. Does anyone have one or think there worth it? If so, post a link to a quality one.

I've personally never used one but I know people who have and it worked for them. Didn't give them much of a charge but it gave them enough to put a necessary call through.
looks alot like a Turbo Charger that I have. It gives a 10 percent charge.I had to get the adapter for Droid but they send you one for cost of postage under 2.00 .
I have seen them at Big Lots for 5.00
does the turbo charger tc2 package come with a micro usb cord/attachment? that will work for the droid? i went in to a store today, after researching this product, and taking feed back here, around 20 bucks a piece, none at the big lots here, would be nice to have one for five bucks, i like and would prefer to use rechargeable AA sized batteries because i have so many of them. don't like the thought of changing internal cellphone batteries constantly back and forth. would like to see more items like this one, would be great as back up power when im riding bike trails. thanks

I've been wanting to try this out, but I don't have the right tools and am too lazy to go out and get them.
I have been using a similar kind of thing on for my iphone 3gs, its a solor powered charger that can be connected to any cell phone with its multi port system. following is the images of that device.
