  1. #1

    Default Is there a AA power pack that I can use as a USB charger

    Basically, I am looking for a power package uses AA (eneloop) batteries, and the pack outputs to a USB plug, so that I can charge USB devices with it.

    Such device exists?

    If you know how to DIY, then something like this would probably be the cheapest solution.

    I made a USB charger with a board just like this.

    Energizer made one, they still might make it. I bought mine almost 5 years ago and it suited its purpose.

    Sanyo actually markets such a device under the Eneloop brand. Model KBC-E1S and it comes with 2xAA Eneloops. I believe this one is discontinued and in its place two lithium ion based power packs.

    I have this emergency charger for few months, so far so good.
    I bought from http://dx.com/p/usb-2-0-emergency-ch...110057?item=42

    Using 2xAA eneloops, it gives me about 30-40 minutes.
