Speaking as an annoyingly-frequent traveler, rechargeable battery packs are one of the single most useful products in the world. There are some times when your cell phone or GPS just can not run out of battery. Any company that can put out a truly solid advance to that line of technology wins so very many kudos from me. This year, one of the top rechargeable battery products was the Technocel PowerPak, which won a Best of Design award at the CES 2010 Engineering Awards.
CES 2010 showcases some of the most unique and well designed products made in the last year, and also features tons of demonstrations for new products coming up in the near future. The PowerPak is basically a portable battery-and-charger all in one. It works on all USB devices, and has an MSRP set at $49.99.
The battery on the PowerPak can provide up to 3 hours of extra talk time on your cellphone. It features LED indicators to show the remaining capacity of the battery, and has interchangeable tips that are billed as being compatible for 95% of all USB devices. I'm not sure how accurate that number can possibly be, but if your USB device was sold in this country it will probably fit just fine.
If you're really curious about this battery pack, check out technocel's website. For more CES 2010 coverage, go here and here. The CES 2010 show itself does not start until January 7th.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
