Where can I get a mobile usb battery?

I'm trying to find a place that I can physically go to and buy a portable usb battery so I can charge my nexus 4 on the go.

I use an Energizer one from EBay that takes 3 rechargable AA's. Works great with my Nexus 4. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Energizer-Instant-Charger-for-Micro-USB-Mobile-Phones-with-Batteries-PP-3AAMC-/151110968921?pt=US_Cell_Phone_PDA_Chargers&hash=item232eea6659

I bought a couple of these: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/black-2600mah-USB-Lipstick-External-Battery-Backup-Power-Bank-Charger-for-phone-/310733371180?pt=US_Cell_Phone_PDA_Batteries&hash=item485926f72c Served me well this summer in Europe. Would give me an ~80% battery boost on my iPhone 5.

I know you can order a few different models from thinkgeek.com. Worth doing research there, even though you can probably buy it elsewhere for less.

I bought one of these http://www.powerocksusa.com The one I got can charge my iPhone 5, 5 times before needing to be recharged, or give a good charge to my iPad if needed.

If you are looking for a physical store have you tried Future Shop, Best Buy, Staples, or Canadian Tire? Usually you can also find something at airport shops. It may be best to check if they have them in stock before going as it seems to be a little hit and miss even within the same store but at different locations. I bought one from Best Buy when they were discontinuing a model. For the price of the stand I got the battery charger as well. That was online, not at a physical store.

I use these 2 that I got a couple of months ago from Monoprice: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10831&cs_id=1083110&p_id=9283&seq=1&format=2 http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10831&cs_id=1083110&p_id=9531&seq=1&format=2 I prefer the 1st one for 3 reasons: 1) It's shape makes it more portable 2) It uses the same microUSB cable as your phone 3) Dual USB outputs: One is 1A, the other is 2.1A (both push out 1A when used simultaneously) I prefer the 2nd one for 1 reason: 1) 9000 mAh > 5000 mAh Hope it helps!

I believe you can physically go to Monoprice, although you'd have to travel to Rancho Cucamonga first....
