Smartphone charger wanted - battery operated

Phil Ocifer

I'm looking to the expert panel to provide an answer on this one please.

I'm wanting a charger for a smartphone (Nexus4) in which one can replace the batteries with standard off the shelf, ready to use alkaline batteries (which are readily available at almost any shop).

My rationale is that if I'm camping or at a festival I can simply connect the charger and phone until the alkalines are depleted, then replace them with another set and so on.

Most chargers appear to have a non-replaceable battery only rechargeable via usb whether mains or via a PCs usb port.

Obviously I don't always have mains or spare laptops at festivals.

All suggestions warmly received thanks.
