Each of these options has pluses and minuses. The reviews at each of the links say as much. One of the batteries you linked to has retractable power "prongs" so the A/C adapter is built in, a great option. Another has a proprietary power cord and the third has no charge status indicators (minuses, IMO). All of them are a little heavier than others I've seen, but only by an ounce or so. They are certainly cheaper than brand name alternatives. I won't be the first to plug no-name power sources into my electronics but I appreciate the feedback from users who do.

Ah, I've went through those too. I've issues with their 5.5v output voltage. That means the phone/nook will have to dissipate that extra voltage as heat. At best, it'll heat it up more, worse, it'll be over the spec and burn something out overtime. I have no way for sure to know if that's the case, but I'm sticking with 5v output voltage. I love the extra capacity though.

i go on long trips that I might not have a wall plug in (bicycle touring). I have two of these bad boys:

http://www.epowerpad.com/model/PPD130.aspx

they power the nook color and all of my phones no problem. each battery has 2 usb ports to charge and one cable to charge my laptop. It's a lot of money, but I can charge my nook color 5 times over with one of these.

Pricey but thanks for the link.

Do they "fast charge" your NC like the stock charger does?

very pricey, i got them from work for free, just thought i'd make people aware.

the charger is slow, i'm not using the nook cable and charged 20% in 2.5 hours.

Two more options just became available:

monster 6600mah
http://www.dealextreme.com/p/6600mah...er-black-59886

4000mah
http://www.dealextreme.com/p/4000mah...le-white-59885

I JUST ordered the 2400mah this week... But some consolation, by a pure mah/dollar point of view, the 2400mah is the best:

2400mah 193.55mah/$1
4000mah 142.86mah/$1
6600mah 126.44mah/$1
