The iBoost is a lithium powered rechargeable iPhone battery extender that has a whopping 3000mAh capacity (are there bigger capacity iPhone batteries out there?). It will extend your talk time 8.5hrs, online time 8.5hrs and video playback time 40hrs. It looks a little bulky, but it would be great for flights or long car rides. You can grab one for $75.

  2. @Julie : The fastmac one actually looks nicer but have you notice that they didn’t show any sample pictures of the thickness of the device? I mean it would defeat the purpose of having a “portable” cell phone when it’s bigger than the ones from the 80s. Next thing you know, people will be strapping on an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) on to their phones and say it will have a 1 year talk time and 100 year standby. lol

  3. @Andy : Yea stay with 3.0.1. I’ve upgraded to 3.1 and ever since I can barely hold a day’s charge. And the funny thing is that I barely use the phone at all. My blackberry can hold a charge for 2-3 days and that’s with lots of calling and texting.

  4. Tell me about it. I just did the iPhone jump (from the Blackberry) last weekend. Good thing I didn’t do the 3.1 hop! Here’s to a smooth MMS launch tomorrow…

  5. I recently purchased a Just Mobile Gum Pro 4400 mAh external USB battery for my iPhone. It’s $60 at

    Fully charged, the Gum Pro carries enough juice to recharge a depleted iphone 3G 3 times. It’s external so it won’t add extra bulk to your phone like the iBoost but small enough to carry around in your pocket. Came in real handy during a 4 hour flight two weeks ago. With the iphone plugged into it, I can watch video for hours without worrying about the battery level.
