    While away from home and car, I have found myself with a low or no charge more times than I would like lately and was looking for a quick convenient solution and found this item on Ebay. Has anyone tried these 9v battery chargers?

    While no substitue for an AC or cigarette charge, I'm hoping it will allow me to make a necessary phone call, etc. when the battery is too low.

    Thanks.

    I bought one too. Haven't had to use it yet, but it said "1/2-3/4" charge.

    I bought like that a loooong time ago for my Treo 600. Not really worth it imo b/c it hardly charged the battery at all. It might be a better idea to just have a spare battery handy for your 650...

    I just ran my 650 battery dry, and tried the emergency charger. Left it connected for over an hour, and NOTHING. I am returning it for a refund.

    I think I'll be taking G's advice.

    P.S. John, I assume the 9v battery was juiced.

    Brand new battery. Although I may still keep it. The 'charging' light was on, so it was feeding power. I could still make it work for an emergency.

    I had one for my 180 and it did work good. good, not a substitute for charging in the docking station, and yes. It allowed me to continue to use the phone.

    I will not get one for the 650, I will buy another battery instead. Keep it charged by rotating it and have it in my bag ready to go.

    My two cents, DAvid
