If I use the cord that comes with Glass, with the plug that goes at a right angle, could I plug Glass in while I'm wearing it, running the cord behind my ear and down my back to a battery pack in my pocket?

It might looks ridiculous, but I'd feel better knowing I had the option...

Yes you can and I actually just bought one to do just this for those long days without being near a charger.

Which pack did you end up buying? I think google recommends using the wall charger that came with the Glass. And that charger charges at .25A. I wonder what the long term effects of charging it at over 1A ? Anyone have any ideas please chime in!

Sorry, I meant that I was ordering Glass! With the new version future-compatible with prescription lenses and the possibility of finessing an external battery pack, my reservations are just muted enough for me to pull the trigger.

I hadn't seen that about the charger. I have an Anker with 3A output. I may have to look into something with fewer amps, I guess?

I was thinking the same thing, if someone manufactures one of the tiny/thin curly cables like some security detail wears it would be a great combination for glass, I'd just keep the usb battery in a jacket pocket, or even on a hip clip...

With a clip for the neck of your shirt, with a micro usb end, and a USB A connector... I'd be all over it!

The Glass will only charge at the rate that it is capable of charging at. If Glass draws 0.25A when it charges, that's all it will do even if you plug it into something capable of delivering 1 trillion Amps. The charging circuit is in the device, not in the plug you stick in the wall. BTW, same thing with phones/tablets. The important thing is for the plug to be capable of delivering MORE than what the device needs.
