Travel charger

    Going on holiday next week and I remember seeing a while back a device you can charge seperately which when needed acts as a sort of external battery and it plugs into most items like phone, mp3 etc. Anybody had experience of these, are they any good and where;s the cheapest place at the moment.

    Also, i have been looking for portable dvd players but none seem to run off batteries, anyone know different?

    Emergency Mobile Phone Charger
    Instant phone" alt="" />
    Emergency Mobile Phone ChargerStandard Unit/Connectors £4.95
    iPod Connector £1.5
    This latest model has just hit the UK shores (Nov 07) and now works with all the latest phones, PDA's, and even has iPod Compatibility. It also gives up to twice as much power as those chargers using a single AA battery so you can chat or listen to your tunes for even longer.

    Running out of power for your mobile puts a serious dent in your communication possibilities, and is in short a total nightmare. With this cool key ring at your side such experiences are a thing of the past.

    Just pop the Emergency Charger in your pocket along with your keys, cash, mobile phone or iPod and relax, safe in the knowledge that you've taken all necessary precautions to avoid a temporary personal power cut.

    Just insert 2 AA batteries (not included), and plug it in for an instant charge giving you up to 4 hours talk time or 20 hours standby (device dependent).

    As just about every corner shop or petrol garage sells AA batteries, even if the one you're carrying runs out, another battery will always be close to hand. The gizmo has a red 'charging status' indicator light to show charging is taking place.

    If you want this gadget to power up your iPod in emergency 'no tunes!' situations, please purchase the extra connector. A full charge will give about 2.5 - 4 hours listening time.

    looks interesting, says that it has 1700mAh of power which i think is pretty good, anyone else verify?

    Also, does anyone know of a portable dvd player that runs from batteries? thanks
