    Does anyone have any experience of using portable chargers with the iPhone? Do any work?

    Am going away camping for a week and would like to have the iPhone with me for phone and the odd bit of entertainment if necessary - but might not have access to power to keep it running for 5/6 days.

    So any experiences with the cheap wind-up or AA battery chargers (or the more expensive alternatives) working with the iPhone?

    Will you have a car with you? If so an inverter and the standard charger would work fine.

    i never liked the idea of external battery combine with a case, it looks too clumsy to me.

    i love the richard solos, they have 1800mah and 1200mah versions, i prefer the 1200mah because of its dimensions.

    What about solar chargers? does anyone had any experience with them?

    I am going camping for a week with no car or outlet. The only way I can think of charging them is solar I think.

    Do anyone recomend?

    thank you

    The Imax IMP500 is what I use. You can recharge your iPhone 4.5 times with it. I can even have it hooked up in my purse while going around. I can have it hooked up while watching videos on a plane and still have a fully charged phone when arriving at my destination.

    I use the Just Mobile Gum Pro (4400mah) works like the iMax charger and you can charge it while you charge the iPhone too.
