Plug any USB powered mobile device (phone, iPod, digital camera etc.) into the battery's standard USB port and recharge anywhere. Even power hungry devices like the iPod 5G will recharge and play for up to three times longer when connected to the Proporta USB Mobile Device Charger and you can recharge your mobile, Smartphone or PDA anywhere. Use as an emergency charger which can be recharged from any convenient USB port and never run out of power again."</em> <br /><br /><img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/web/2003/USB-Mobile-Device-Charger.jpg" alt="" /> <br /><br />Having just returned from a long trek (<a href="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/articles.php?action=expand,51430" target="_blank">Mobius Thailand</a>), I ran into all sorts of issues related to powering my various mobile devices, and it would have been the same with a Zune if I had owned one yet. Although nothing was catastrophic (I was fairly well prepared), this exact device is something I could have really used to keep my USB-based devices powered. Anyone own one, or something similar? How do you find using it? This is one of the few Zune-compatible accessories that Microsoft isn't selling (yet?) that would be mighty handy, especially if you're using the Zune to watch battery draining videos.
