Charge up your cell phone with two AA batteries with Turbocharge 2.

Detailed information

The original Turbo Charge uses 1 AA battery as the power source to charge different portable devices, including cellphones and iPods.  [See Episode 196 for version 1, called iTurbo, which is the same charger with a iPod adapter.  The Album Art in the download is also version 1.]  Version 2 is a bigger since it uses 2 AA batteries.  Each Turbo Charge doubles up as an LED flashlight, has a battery indicator, and comes with your choice of one cellphone adapter, or you can get a 9-Adapter Bundle.  Extra adapters are also available, even for portable gaming consoles.  A set of 2 AA batteries is supposed to be sufficient for 3 charging cycles for typical cellphones.
