Hi all,

Does anyone know of a moderately priced external battery pack that will take standard AA batteries and produce 5v suitable for use with say a Kyocera SL300R.

Love this little camera, but it has the battery live of a snowball in the summertime. I already have a spare LiON battery, and an in-car charger, but I still get caught out.

I am trying to find a low cost pack that will take just ordinary disposable batteries that you can get anywhere - even when away from mains power for extended periods that will plug into the external 5v port.

It seems such an 'obvious' and universal need that I am surprised it is so difficult to find. Rechargable packs at $100 - yup, can Google them OK, but ....

I Google with the title of this post and came up with this http://www.addonics.com/products/pow...ttery_pack.asp



No price though, you could probably make your own with a schematic?
