You can try the Duracell Instant Power battery pack. It is cheap and comes with a cable that makes the unit think it is a power adapter and not a std USB cable. I use it with a AEE mini DV. Only the special USB cable charges that device. A regular USB cable makes the unit think it is connected to a PC. Not sure how much extra power the pack can provide... haven't tested it yet.

I used the Black & Decker CP120B 20 Watt Power Backup Battery Pack when I went on vacation. Had to bring the power backup and the plug with me. The B&D unit has an AC plug and an invertor bult in. Bought mine at Woot! x3 and got some more in a BOC. You can also get them at Amazon and plently of other places. The device also has a USB plug for USB charging for cell phones etc. It can also be hacked with 3000mAh AA batteries for longer run time.

[quote name='Childofthehorn;48043]1. Use the 9-12V port 2. Goto Radioshack3. Buy compatible tip or make compatible cable from components there. 4. or get a 5V-9V converter and throw it in the GT78' date=' sucking off of the 5V USB[/QUOTE']Checked with Radio Shack - they don't carry this line of Xpal tips. Haven't contacted Energizer yet, but they guarantee that they can supply a tip for any device.I ordered a Zip-Linq DC adapter that converts a USB input to 9.0V @ 300mA. It didn't charge the Gentouch. Got hot the first time I used it, so may be defective. Are people successfully charging the unit via USB?

I forgot about these. I have several from woot too. Pretty old, but still working. Using the AC output, mine extended the battery life by over 50% playing mp3s - might get more time with fresh batteries.
