Works with Prism

Weight 4.9 oz w/ batteries

Power 4 AA batteries

Availability Unknown

Emergency Charger by Tech Center Labs

>> Read Review (Rating 5/5) <<

They say that you should never discuss politics or religion at the dinner table. In the handheld world, you should never discuss Flash memory or battery types because no one will ever come to an agreement. With the Emergency Charger for the Visor Prism, Tech Center Labs has done its part to silence the naysayers that feel an internal rechargeable battery is dangerous when you travel.

The beauty of the Emergency Charger is its simplicity. There is a spring-loaded HotSync connector that attaches to the Visor Prism. You can then either connect the A/C adapter that came with the Prism or the battery pack to recharge your handheld.

Really great
This is a really great product. Especially in combination with power sucking modules like the MiniJam.

Great For Long Flights
I got the Emergency Charger to keep my Visor power on the 7 hours of flights I'd be on for Springbreak. Not only is it much smaller & better built than I thought it would be but it came relatively fast. Carol Bell, if you're reading this, a thumbs down means bad...

Over Priced
The Emergency Charge is over priced, and does not come with it own AC adapter. Good Idea, but not worth the money

Just what I need for travelling...
It'll be great for all those trips that I have take away from home. It's smaller than I expected too -- which is a good thing!

A Must Have
One cannot travel without this charger and maximize the Prism's potential. It takes away the worry of the battery going down at at time when you need its power. Simply a great investment.

Great product with multiple uses
I really like the ability to turn a regular adapter into a travel adapter using the litle USB plug which is available as part of the charger or separately. I want to see if Talestuff produces a solar recharger now.
