<br>... absolutely DO take a car charger along, because the iPhone G3 devours battery power at an alarming rate. There are oodles of laments across the web.<br><br>It is indeed somewhat disappointing, because the iPhone invites using and showing it. But with mixed use - UMTS on, 3-4 calls, a few times checking mail, getting online for 1/2 hour or so, showing off a few pictures at the bistro - I hardly ever get more than 6 hours out of the battery.<br>Just using it as an iPod (with G3, location services, and WiFi disconnected) it gets a day or more, but as soon as you actually use it, be prepared to watch that indicator go down.<br><br>Since I carry a bag with me anyway, I already carry additional camera batteries. So, I am considering this: http://www.iphoneck.com/product.php?productid=1&cat=1&page=1<br><br>Nothing worse than having a toy die when you really want to play, ain't it?<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
