    .

    I will be traveling to an areas with no access to power, and I wanted to get a power pack that could also works with AA alkaline batteries to use with my Razr.
    Can any one recommend one, preferably a model that hold 4 AA batteries.

    Thanks!

    Why not a solar charger? Or are you looking for something faster?

    why dont you get something like this New Trent iCruiser IMP1000 11000mAh External Battery: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics which is way better than relying on AA battery packs

    I got one from monoprice.com. Monoprice is an awesome resource for a ton of quality stuff at cheap prices, especially cables.

    I ended up getting the Tekkeon MP1580 as it uses 4 AA, either rechargeable or disposable. If you use rechargeable, batteries it will charge those.

    There are a lot of decent low dollar chargers on the market, but I purchased the Powertraveler Power Monkey Extreme solar charger unit for myself (military). It's a 9000mAh battery that can be charged with the solar panel that's included. It's expensive, but it works and charges the phone pretty quickly as it seems to have a slightly higher output than a standard charger.

    Bought it when stationed in California with 9 months of sun. Worked real well and is useful for power outages as well.
