    So I play baseball at my college. We are constantly on the road and one of the main reasons I wanted my iTouch was to keep me busy on the road. However, Ive come to the realization that my battery will not last nearly as long as I had hoped. With a 4+ hour trip to Wake Forest coming up Tuesday I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on a good portable charger? Ive seen some but none really specify if they work with the iTouch or not, also they dont say if I can use my device and charge it at the same time. Any help would be appreciated!

    Do you mean a car charger or battery pack?

    I've also been wondering what external battery was best and affordable.

    I've also found out most external batteries for iPod touches don't let you charge and have your headphones in because the battery pack blocks the headphone jack. So your best with a Mophie Juice pack(over $100) or unpopular external batteries that have cords.

    I use these really nice black and decker battery packs that have an a/c and USB plug-ins that I picked up at woot.com for 2/$15, I picked up six. They charge the iPod twice. They can be used with all personal electronics. Check out Black and Decker Pocket Power

    The CP120B, I don't know why there are bad reviews, they weren't very clear on why they didn't like it, maybe size? It's about 7x4in and 3/4lbs. Perfect for backpack or briefcase, I wouldn't carry it in my pocket. At four bucks a piece though, that's a steal. I've seen disposable battery chargers for the iPhone for a buck or two a piece.
    Edit- I figured out how to see the reveiws, it appears to be hit or miss. I ordered 6 off woot and they all work fine. I guess you can risk $12 on a couple+shipping. Seems like when they work, they're great, and when they don't, luckily it was less than $5
