Power up with portable, cordless backup charger

It's hard to get along without a cell phone these days. Especially if you have kids scattered from one end of the county to the other.
But it seems like no matter how vigilant you are about charging your phone, you sometimes find yourself watching the battery charge deflate like a day-old balloon.
How about a backup charger -- cordless -- that you can carry in your bag or backpack?
Fat Cat's PowerBar 4200 is essentially a travel battery pack. It's smaller than a computer mouse and comes in black, blue, red, orange and silver. It will charge your smartphone, mobile phone, iPod or household gaming system twice before you have to recharge the Fat Cat.
It sells for $69.95. Order online at or call 845-258-9027.
