    This week i am going to Vegas. Its pretty obvious that my battery wont make it a full day while i am there. I dont think I will be in my room very often. Is there a spare battery i can buy with an external charger like i had for my 700wx that i can keep on a charger??

    thanks

    Walmart sells a cheap cigarette adapter charger for $10, which works well. Many of us, including myself, use it. As far as spare battery, you can go to a Sprint corporate store and complain the battery. They will, more than likely, give you an additional battery. If they say there are no spare 800w batteries, just tell them it's the same battery as the Centro.

    There are many posts here regarding conserving battery life, such as turn of infrared.

    Get a car charger with a USB interface. Then you can use the USB cable on your computer too.

    But sure it must be in 5 v and 1000 mah, which is 1 AMP.

    Buy it from fleabay. They are only a few dollars.

    The Sprint portable charger is an excellent option. Boxwave and Proporta also make similar chargers. You can also find Centro batteries (which are the same as the 800w battery) on ebay for under $10 each, and there is a thread around here somewhere showing battery chargers on ebay at $5.00 each.

    As cheap and portable as a spare battery (or 2) is, I don't know why anyone would go for that Sprint brick.

    I just carry around two spares and know that I can make it through any day.

    Where is a good place to get spare batteries for the 800w? Will the centro battery work too - two separate questions there : )

    The advantage of the Palm charger (which comes with a battery), is that you don't have to worry about having the battery in your phone to charge it. You can attach the charger to your charging cable / travel charger / car charger while using your phone. Then you can charge your phone separately.

    It actually has plug-ins for both the old adapter and USB - it's really very good. (The picture is deceptive.)

    I just bought one of the sprint power packs this morning. It charges anything that can plug into it via a USB cable. I got it instead of another battery/charger because I can use it for a multitude of things....Ipod, digital camera, etc.

    If I only had a nickle for every time I was sittign in an airport terminal scouring for a power outlet - and having to fight 3 others suits to try and sit next to it!
