The bad: not for iPhone.

From a website:

................................

This cordless cellphone charger fits in a wallet and provides an additional hour of power.

Only 1/4" thick, the device fits inside a wallet's credit card slot, enabling impromptu charging of any cell phone with a micro USB port when traditional power sources are unavailable.

The portable power hub's lithium-ion battery extends a cell phone's battery life by 25% before requiring a recharge itself.

It connects to devices with its 1-1/2"-long fold-out micro USB cord (compatible with most Android and Blackberry smartphones or traditional cellphones).

Recharges in two hours via the included USB adapter.

3-1/4"W x 2"H x 1/4"D.

Weighs one ounce.

Brown or Black. 

................................

$30.

you want this for iphone. The mophie battery packs used to be really expensive, but you can get generic battery/cases now for as little as US$20 a case depending where you look

Apple have made a dock>mini-USB adapter for the European market (where all phones new phones now need to be able to be charge using mini-USB) so it is possible to make this work for your iDevice. I can't find it on the Apple site, but you can find alternatives on most of the cheap Chinese web sites - like here http://www.dinodirect.com/micro-usb-adapter.html?d=0808

I really like this. However...
Why not just buy a spare battery for your phone? They're less than $30 and it'll give you 85% charge. (I've read you shouldn't store an extra battery at 100% capacity and that 85% is preferable.) Then you can use your phone without having that weird thing attached to it.

I always get a spare battery with every phone I have.
