Since my phone is always running out of power, I carry external battery packs. I've been through several, but this T-Mobile pack is by far the best at this small size. At $10 with $1 shipping, it is priced just right for investing in several.
Has a MicroUSB cable built in and charges off any MicroUSB power source. 1950mAH means you'll get nearly a full charge on most devices, and in my test I can indeed get my Galaxy Nexus to 100% (draining the pack in the process of course).
Available on Amazon through a third party seller, so no Prime...
Because I hate having loose batteries with me when I travel - they have too great a risk of shorting out. Plus I can charge my phone using this pack without having to turn it off.

How long does the charge last if you just carry it around without using.

how does this work? do you need to charge this thing up right before using on phone or can i charge the device up once and have it lay around for emergencies? also, how long does it take to charge?

It has a rechargeable battery in it, similar to the one in your phone. It can be charged up in advance and will retain a charge, but the charge will deplete over time, even without use. So you will need to recharge it every once in a while. I'm guessing recharging it once a week should be fine (assuming you haven't used it, in which case recharge it ASAP).

If you're dying to try something like this out, you can pickup something similar from Monoprice. It's a little clunkier, and I picked up a microUSB extension cable off of eBay for $2 to go with the one I bought.
