    Hi guys

    We all know that the battery life on the desire is a cause for concern. I use mine for alot of navigation when out in the sticks with OS maps and for directions with google maps.

    Over the last week, I have got cut short twice while using it for navigation.

    I can understand why it is happening so I need a backup. Can anyone recommend a decent portable charger? I have heard that the pebble is about the best? Didnt really want to spend

    Not cheap but the best:
    JustMobile Gum Pro
    4400mAh and 120gram :)
    Fast charging with 1000mA
    Charging the Desire with 1000mA
    2.5x charging 15% to 100%

    You can use your phone while charging.

    Nice one. This is better than the pebble? It doesn't hold as much juice but charges devices quicker?

    Yes, you can use the Desire charger and the Desire USB cable with JustMobile.
    No need for a special microUSB adaptor :)

    I have a Proporta 3400mAH USB charger. Quite small provides about 3 charges (very quickly) and comes with adaptors so my missus can charge her iThingy.

    MY pebble has just turned up. Don't like how you don't get a wall adapter. The desire one does nicely though :)

    Charging on AC? It thinks it is charging straight from the mains on this bad boy?
