Default Charging sticks

Hey guys.
Just wanted to know what's your opinion on those charging sticks (don't know if this is the right name, what I mean is this things: http://www.wired.com/images_blogs/ga..._booster_1.jpg).

The reason for me to ask for your opinion is that I know that you can ruin your battery by using a bad charger, so what I wanted to know is if any of you uses these things on a daily basis or has ever used it, and what was/is your experience with them.
I usually do a lot of camping and geocaching so one of these things would come in very handy.

You can't ruin your battery with a bad charger. And its a portable charger, portable battery, whatever you want to call it

I've never used that one but I have a few backup batteries that I can recommend. I have all of these, and they have all proven themselves.

Anker 10000- http://www.amazon.com/10000mAh-Dual-...keywords=anker

I use an Anker 10000 mah battery when hunting seasons come through every year and I am in the woods for days at a time. Love it. I've never had a single issue with it.
