Default [Q] External battery pack in your pocket?

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!
