Always on the look-out for backup power sources for mobile electronic devices, we were smitten by the PowerBar from FatCat Gear. About the size of a cellphone, the battery pack can charge up most cellphones, music players and handheld gaming systems, a welcome aid when no outlet is at hand.

An attorney for former Blue Lake Police Chief David Gundersen is asking a judge to throw out his client's battery and weapons convictions. A jury acquitted Gundersen earlier this year on two dozen counts of spousal rape. Instead, it found him guilty of lesser battery charges for taking nude photos of his wife without permission. He also was convicted of illegally possessing weapons. On Wednesday, his attorney argued in a motion that the verdicts were "contrary to both law and evidence."

The SpareOne mobile phone is not for everyday chatting, and there's no email or Web-browsing. So what good is it? Well, this phone is meant for emergencies - now, or up to 15 years hence. That's how long the phone's included single AA battery (an Energizer Ultimate Lithium L91) is estimated to stay charged if stored unused. Once turned on, the phone gives you about 10 hours of talk time. The battery is replaceable. The phone looks like a basic cellphone (though a bit longer, at 5 1/2 by 2 inches, but is slim and featherweight)
