    Does anyone know which strips on the usb 2.0 cord actually charge the phone? I am working on making an external battery powered off of AA batteries.

    Wow, I applaud your enthusiasm, but it sounds like you're going to put way too much work into something that won't be worth the headaches.

    Either way, good luck with that. :)

    Why waste a bunch of batteries when numerous companies have done the dirty work for you?

    I was going to do that with my cordless phone.

    Hello,

    I would be careful not to overload the batteries.

    Here is something, I may get, when I get an iphone 2 and it supports business Apps, its a batterypack for the iphone. Says it uses the batery pack first then switches over to the iphone's battery. Don't know how well the company is though. :)

    Thanks for the tips. I want to do this for many reasons. Namely, I don't want to be defeted by a computer. I plan to use C batteries for my device. I hope to be able to do more than charge an iPhone with it, though. I want it to be able to charge multiple devices at the same time without causing damage to anything.
