External battery charger for those who have either lost their charger, or damaged their charging ports for removable lithium batteries


If you have either lost or damaged your charger / charging ports on your phone with a removable battery, this is something that can be a simple and inexpensive option, until a more permanent solution is found. Energizer sells this for just under $8, and allows you to charge your removable battery via a usb jack. I have used it also for my digital camera batteries with success. The picture doesn't show it well, but there are 2 wire leads that can be positioned to match the spacing and polarity of the contacts on your lithium battery. Using spring tension to hold the battery in place, while the other end has a male usb dongle that fits into any usb charger or jack. It also lights up to show you that it's charging. http://www.shop.energizerpowerpacks.com/accessories?product_id=63

I re-read my post and I think it's pretty clear its a suggestion for anyone out there with a need for an external charging solution. Recently, someone had a question about external chargers, and I offered this same suggestion but they commented in a way that didn't make me think they actually read my comment. So, i figured this was a good "idea" for me to actually post it, however it doesn't fit into the category of a question, nor praise This will actually be the fuel for my next "idea" post. Thanks for the "idea" Kid!

I just mean your post isn't directed towards Koodo in any way man,I don't know if you were suggesting Koodo start carrying these type of chargers perhaps?

Ahh.. You are right, a lot of the posts here don't seem Koodo related, and there are a quite a few posts that are " kind of " related. I guess if a post offers any help whatsoever, or can be a potential solution to our members to continue using Koodo services in any way, then they should be valid. This forum could also be a way for even non-Koodo customers to also participate for the sake of helping. I bet there are alot of members here that aren't even Koodo customers, but have joined for "other" reasons. wink wink

Actually I suggested a section in the forum for general things like this and Koodo told me they don't want posts like this on their forum which would mean no need for a section for them. Just keep posts directly related to Koodo. Just giving you a heads up.

that's cool man! but still wierd don't you think? Actual customers ask a question about what to do or where to find stuff that isn't necessarily Koodo related, and answers come almost immediately, and at the end of the day, it actually results in the customer continuing to use Koodo services, without frustration or finding a "different" carrier to solve their needs. I'm glad you asked already too....

Haha Kid, I can see that Koodo does not want to become a chit chat forum where people yak about what they had for breakfast, that is what Facebook is for (or so I have been told, lol). I think Justin's suggestion is quite nice and I don't see any harm in him posting it here... after all it is cell phone related and thus potentially quite helpful. But hey that is just my opinion which in no way reflects anything but just that 😃

Sophia when I say a general section I mean Cell phone related, obviously not a chit cht room. I'm telling someone what Koodo employees have told me and passing it along. If you have a link related to a question that has been posted then post it on that thread, don't make a separate post about it. Not my opinion that of Koodo
