    Hello. I am really needing a battery back up. I think its to much spending $50 to $100 on a battery back up. I know Richard Solo and other company's make very nice battery packs for iphone. I looked on Ebay and i see unbranded Iphone battery backups for dirt cheap prices! I would like to know if these are really similar to the branded ones or just crap. Here are some examples:

    2. http://cgi.ebay.com/New-External-Ba...ms=65:1|66:2|39:1|240:1309|301:1|293:1|294:50

    To look at other ones just search on ebay " iphone battery pack"

    I really need some suggestions on this guys.

    who knows? but I wonder if they just push in and pull out? if so they may come out while in your pocket.
    I have this guy costs more but it is high quality and I use a standard cord with it that locks in. I cna charge my iphone 4 times with it. http://www.imaxpower.com/Default.asp?Redirected=Y

    I just ordered one I'll let you know once it arrives. I had a friend who bought one (second link you posted) and she loved it to the point she convinced me to take the small risk.

    Brunton chargers?

    Anyone tried the Brunton chargers? I saw it in NGAdventure and it looks pretty sweet. Not made specifically for the iphone, but it looks to charge several times. A bit bulky, but may come in handy on long trips.

    Any actual users out there that can comment before I plunk down some dough?

    Thank you

    I tend to shy away from battery packs that attach directly to the bottom of the phone. I just don't like the added bulk or the possible stress on the connector. The one I have now isn't sold anymore but is similar to the one Steve linked to above in that you use a cable to tether the phone to the battery pack. That way you can have the battery in a pocket, seat pocket on a plane, etc. Another nice thing about this design is that you can use it to charge other USB devices as well.
