You can find the tips a bit cheaper if you do some searching around. I picked up the Fueltank from Best Buy a few weeks ago and it rocks!
I brought it with me when I went skiing last week- I charged up my BB on the slopes while still listening to tunes. Very sweet!

I mean really, I saw a (2)AA-battery-powered USB mobile charger at Lowe's the other day, for $9.99. With a couple of AA cells, I can charge my BlackBerry, and then (in my case) charge my BlueTooth headset.
All for less than ten bucks! This seems like overkill to me, and overprice(d).

I have a portable charger for way less than that and I can use it to charge any device I choose. This, even with the discount, is way too expensive for my needs.
DOPE!!!! i know it costs an arm and a leg but if i had money like that...this baby would be mine. i have tons of junk i could charge on this thing.
