The trick to remember is, to always bring the USB cord that comes with your phone so you can actually plug the phone into the portable charger!!
For the price, I say it's a decent value. The packaging is a bit misleading, but I'm certainly glad that I have it.
I just wish that the portable charger could be re-charged with a plug-in wall attachment. There was an instance, when I wasn't around a computer to plug in the USB cord for the charger and I hadn't brought the "standard" plug-in wall charger that comes with the phone with me. All I had was the portable charger and the USB cord and no power source that would work... But it simply means, I have to plan better next time and bring everything with me.
If you are buying one of these, I'd suggest the Powerhouse over any other.
EDIT: I've used this a few times with my Droid-X and it is excellent. I highly recommend it if you need a portable power solution for yours. I'm using a right-angle micro-USB to USB cable with it and would recommend the same.
So far I have not had a chance to test the Powerhouse during a run (planning to do that this weekend). But I am testing it with charging the Garmin as I write this, and it does work. It seems to be charging more quickly with the Powerhouse than it does when I plug it into the wall outlet or computer. I'm told that if I charge the Garmin while I'm running, I won't be able to read the display, but it will still track my info.
This device does work with both regular USB and mini USB. It's roughly the size and weight of a cell phone. It doesn't take batteries; you charge it from the USB port of your computer.
I gave it four stars for now because I haven't had a chance to use it much yet. That may change to five stars if it works well during my long run this weekend.
Edited 6/3/12: The Powerhouse worked really well to recharge my Garmin during a 20-mile run last weekend. It took it from a 17% charge to a 77% charge in about 25-30 minutes. It also has had enough battery life left to charge the Garmin several more times without being recharged itself. I increased my rating to five stars based on this.
