The Best 2AA Lightweight Portable Charger Available
on February 11, 2014
I am still searching for the perfect solution. This is not perfect but the best I have found so far. They will convert AA batteries into an iPhone charge. I use my Iphone5 as a GPS, camera, notes, iBook, music etc while camping and as an email machine while traveling. I need a lightweight charger that runs on 2 (not 4) AA batteries. This thing works great. What I don't like is that the batteries get hot, which is not a problem winter camping (hand warmer) but a valid concern on a plane. I have never had smoke but they do get hot. I tried the modification of clipping one of the middle pins on one but it wouldn't charge after that; I may sacrifice/test another one. I have also bought one or two defective ones so I buy/carry extras. They are cheap, lightweight, compact and disposable. I would pay more money for one that doesn't get hot but I can't find a 2AA with decent reviews. These things work well for charging an iPhone. The flashlight is better than nothing but not by much. They are not perfect but certainly worth the price.
