One battery source to power them all

Yet another rechargeable battery company has released an alternative to a bag full of AA batteries. This time around, it's Big Wave Power, which introduced its Titan I portable power source this week.

The device weighs only 4.8 ounces and is thinner than a deck of cards, 4.10 x 2.41 x.67 inches and recharge virtually any DC-power portable electronic device.

The company claims the Titan I can last over 3500 recharge cycles and can charge two devices simultaneously, one from the USB based 5 volt port, and another on the 9 volt FireWire based port.

So in essence, you could power up your Palm Treo and your iPod at the same time.

Big Power Wave, said the Titan can be fully recharged in approximately 2.5 hours and ships with nine adapters, including a USB retractable cross connecter cable for portable game players and digital cameras, as well as a USB 6 Volt booster for Nokia cell phones and some portable music players.

The Titan ships with a 2-year warranty for $149.99.
