    Can anyone recommend a good battery backup that really works?

    I have tried no less than 3 different battery backup devices with my Kindle Fire and none have worked. The last one I tried was the pricey ZaggSparq 2.0, and its upposedly rated at 6000 maH!

    I would like to know if anyone has found one that truly works to power the Kindle Fire while travelling. Cinch has a few, including a whopper with 11,000 maH, but I learned the hard way that you can't depend on a manufaturer's claims.

    Thanks Kindle Users!

    This charges at a rate of 1000mA, it should be enough to prolong the use of your Fire.

    Amazon.com: Tekkeon MP1580 TEKCHARGE Mobile Power Pack and Battery Charger: MP3 Players & Accessories http://amzn.to/yBnYtF

    I have the old 500mA version and it's excellent. I use it with Sanyo Eneloop batteries.

    You should check with your carrier. Many airplanes, trains and buses now have either AC or DC (cigarrete socket) available...even in coach. Was recently on a 10 hour train ride through Canada. Power at every seat. However we used the Kindle quite a bit and it still lasted the trip without recharging. Who really wants to stare at a tablet for more than 5 hours out of 10?

    Are you referring to devices like the NewTrent things?

    I carry a battery pack made by APC, www. apc.com, model UPB10, use it recharge Blackberry, ITouch and the KF. Picked up "ReTrack" cords to accomodate both ITouch, Blackberry and KF (same micro USB). http://www.apc.com/resource/include/...base_sku=UPB10

    Get 2 recharges for KF from it. Think one is also made by the "Coppertop" battery brand.
