Default Steal of a Deal - Tekkeon TekCharge MP1800

"Tired of running out of juice when you're on the run? The Tekkeon TekCharge MP1800 is a rechargeable portable battery pack that supplies power to phones, MP3 players, Bluetooth headsets, and other mobile devices. The charger comes with seven adapter tips for use with most kinds of mobile phones, but you can also use the USB cable that came with your iPod, Zune, or other device. In other words, it's almost universally compatible, provided that your gizmo can be charged via USB."

I think I'm going to order one of these as is should cover my iPod, Zune, and phone.  The normal price is $44.95, but right now Amazon has them for $28.99 $39.27 (they hiked the price!).  [Affiliate]  Unfortunately there is a couple of week backlog on their supply, so it will be a bit before I can share my thoughts.  Anyone out there already have one of these?

Weird - the price jumped to $39.27... Maybe they saw the pick-up in orders and hiked the price.

Comes up at $39.27 for me... I'd have to give it some thought at that price.

and that price is for a 3rd party seller. Amazon has it back at $44.95. Glad I got my order in yesterday.

Default Battery Adapter PRO

Have you considered the Battery Adapter PRO from BoxWave ?
It's only 22.50 (Web Special at the moment) and has the advantage of using rechargable or normal batteries. This gives you the flexability of being able to recharge even when there are no power plugs handy !
This has been an invaluable tool for me. Check it out at
