Does anyone know of any travel chargers for the Tungsten line that are powered by AA batteries? I have found one that has its own built in bttery pack which it uses, but you have to charge that first. I want one I can use with AA as I will be traveling soon a bunch to Korea and Japan and sitting in airplanes a lot where I can't recharge things with an outlet and would like to be able to use AAs as they are available everywhere...

Check the Boxwave Battery adapter. It uses two AA batteries and offer a USB plug. You can plug the USB cable directly into it and it will charge your device (if it charges from USB ports directly).

The travel chargers page has lots of different adapters there.

Thanks, that looks to be exactly what I was looking for, with the added benefit of it being more or less universal and also able to do my cell phones...

You can also find AA batt chargers on ebay. I have one that takes 4 AA batts and it uses the Palm Universal connecter. Just make sure that all you want to do with it is recharge it. I tried using that thing with my Palm WIFi card (anyone who've used that thing knows about the drainage) and while it showed that it was charging, when I unplugged it, the battery level on my T3 was down!
