    Since I travel a lot and sometimes don't have access to outlets. I was thinking about getting a battery/powercell back-up. Does anyone else use them or these I found?

    If you are willing to open up your wallet... and I mean really open it up, you will never have to worry about being far from commercial power with one of these... as long as its sunny outside. It is only $499!

    If you are willing to settle for a slightly less elegant solution without the fancy carrying bag, there is this solution for only $300 --

    (Scroll down to the 10 watt Foldable Solar Panel) They also make a battery pack that will apparently add 20 more hours of use time to your iPad for $250.

    I have a Tekkeon MyPower All MP3450 which I use as backup for all my portable devices. It has a USB port as well as a set of various plugs and I find it very useful when travelling.

    Have fun,

    I've had great success with the NewTrent Imp880. It'll charge everything and the kitchen sink. I use it to charge my iPad, iPhone 4, Motorola Bluetooth, Samsung Saga, Nintendo DS, and my Sansa MP3 player. The thing carries 8,900 mAh when fully charged. Great for traveling, flights, camping, etc. They (NewTrent) carry smaller and larger capacity batteries as well.
