    Is there such thing as a non-portable charger? :D

    Oh I see, auxiliary battery pack.

    Mophie

    I used a Mophie Juice Pack Air on my Iphone 4 and it was flawless. I rarely even went into using the battery on the IP4 in a normal day. I know they have one for the Ip5. Good luck.

    One of my friends have got the Mophie, he says it is good. May be you can have a try. Personally, i will pick the USB Flash Charger, much cheaper. :)

    Search Amazon.

    What I would look for is about 3000 mAh minimum. There is an inherent efficiency loss moving power from one battery to another. A 2000 mAh aux battery won't be enough to charge a 1450 mAh iPhone battery 100% if its dead. It might be close if the phone is kept off.

    Bigger the better IMO but that depends on how portable you need it to be.

    That's if you are looking for a desperate battery. If you are looking for a case the go mophie. Avoid Chinese knock offs, their quality is horrible.

    That USB flash charger actually looks really cool. With it being so cheap, I would give that a try and if it's not what you like then go towards the Mophie.
