    I went to my LSS (Local Sprint Store) and bought the official Sprint Portable Power Pack, a bargain at 1/2 off. 1700some whopping mA of long-lasting power! Now to dig though my trash and retrieve a rubber band from a bunch of asparagus to hold them together, locate a case, and I'll be good to go.

    Sprint Portable Power Pack, cost $50.

    Great idea 1oddmanout.

    1oddmanout, did it cost you $50 or half of that? For $25 I'll buy one and I don't even really need it .

    I paid less than $20 for one on Ebay.

    I told the store that I could get one on the net for $30 (inc. S&H), and the associate asked someone, "what's the discount code?". The reply, "50%". So, $26.25 out the door. Yeah, gotta have one in anycase; I've tended to go to the hospital frequently this ear, and always included a battery charger in my "hospital kit" I keep on me . This replaces that.

    I just carry a extra battery with me if I know I'm going to using my phone non stop. Much more compact. hehe

    I also have a travel charger and car charger. I also carry a spare battery in this charger:

    I've rarely needed the second battery, but it's good to know I can (a) swap batteries if I need to, and (b) charge my phone and/or spare battery using either of my chargers.

    Well I may see about getting a Sprint Portable Power Pack, if I can get it for about $25. If I need more than 1 battery's worth of power, I'd prefer the Power Pack. Since it can charge the Treo 800w multiple times over before needing another charge.

    One Treo 800w battery cost about $30, so if I can get a Power Pack that does multiple charges for around that price or less, it's too good a buy to pass up.

    Hint to TreoCentral, you might want to start stocking the Sprint Portable Power Pack in your online store .

    Sprint turned me down for the discount on the charger.

    Reason: I'm already on SERO and they just discounted my 800w to $349 even though I didn't qualify for my 2 year discount.

    lol, fair enough

    But, even better...

    I just picked up the darn thing on eBay for $12.98 and that was WITH shipping.

    nice.

    seller still has more...

    Here's my (less bulky?) $30 solution to get 3500mAh on the go.

    (The battery charger obviously stays at home.)

    Did I mention no wires?

    Feh, I already bought the spare battery and charger from Palm. Interestingly, though, I haven't had to use it yet.

    I went to the Sprint store today, they were asking for $50 and my telling them I saw them cheaper online didn't convince them to try and give me any discounts. So I did not buy theirs.

    I just picked up one on Ebay, assuming the seller is legit. All together I'm paying $21.94 for it, but that's cheaper than 50% off the Sprint MSRP and even less than the cost of a new Treo 800w battery. I don't even really need it, but at those Ebay prices, too good a deal to miss. And at some point who knows, I may need it.

    lol, I almost bought the Ebay one myself but then thought why? I don't need it.

    yeah, I don't really "need" it either, but for $13...lol.

    Also, since it's sort of a universal charger, I figured I can also do my a2dp headphones, BT headset or any other device, mostly for emergency use.

    Yeah, technically your work on the WM6 700wx was worth at least $13, lol. Next time
