    this one is just awesome for it's overall design, IMO. but in reality, i'm not a fan of battery packs that attach itself to the device due to incompatibility with many cases as well as adding leverage to the dock connector, thus increasing the chances of breakage to either the battery pack, dock connector, or both. because of this, i have an XtremeMac InCharge Portable that doubles as an AC Adapter, stand, and battery pack with dual USB ports... it allows me to juice up both of my phones at the same time plugged in or on the go.

    So Im guessin that first one works fine with the Iphone 4? Thanks for the link to that second site, they have some nice lookin stuff.

    Also, I bought the Kensington Dock and spare battery pack model. The battery is ok as it gives me a bit more time ex. If Im sitting at 40% it'll get me up to @85% if I leave it alone.

    That looks promising. One thing I couldn't find was the size of the battery. How does it compare in battery size to the OP's original suggestions?

    I have been looking at the HyperMac's batteries for some time. I currently have a "Duracell" rechargeable battery pack but I don't like the fact that there is no battery meter on it. That is why I don't like the smaller HyperMac batteries.

    New Trent :)

    I just bought the IMP 500. Mainly to charge up my MIfi when needed. New Trent products had the best reviews I could find. So far it is incredible. It will even charge my iPad if I ever had to, slowly of course at 5W, but still faster than I could run the power down. For $41.95 with free shipping I think it's a great deal.
