    I did search and read the other threads, but has anyone had experience with portable chargers with the Eris?

    I am headed to Bonnaroo and I am sure I'll be using the phone a lot so I was looking at the smaller portable chargers that run off of AA batteries. Figuring I'll need a mid day charge so I want a smaller one to throw in my pack.

    Wouldn't it be just as easy to carry a spare battery for your phone?

    It would be cheaper in the long run as well, especially if you add up buying AA batteries.

    Well, I have AA batteries out the wazoo and a charger with a standard usb port would charge all sorts of devices including my next phone.

    After Bonnaroo I wouldn't use a spare Eris battery again. Also It's a 4 day event, I'd probably need more then two to get me though.

    I've got an excellent idea. Buy a car battery, wire up a cigarette lighter outlet to it and use a normal car charger with your phone. Not incredibly portable or nice to look at, but it would work. The car battery should last for quite some time with only a charger taking power from it. :)

    i have a portable energizer energi-to-go charger that works great, bad part is that it cost me like 50 bucks

    This may not be much of a solution, but last year, my phone died after the 1st day and it was actually a good thing. Trying to meet up with people in bonaroo is a real mess. I had much more luck with walkie talkies. Plus, if you happen to get "confused" late night, and lose your belongings, better to be out 30$ than to lose your phone. I'm speaking from experience. I think I lost it in the silent disco. ;)
