My Device: Bold 9700
My Carrier: T-Mobile

Need an emergency backup charger for hiiking for Bold 9700

I hike a lot and would like to use my Bold 9700's GPS for tracking, but it chews through the battery in 3 hours or so. I would like an emergency charger (battery pack solar augmented would be nice), so I could log a 6 -7 hour hike with no problems. 


I ordered a Artic C1 Mobile Solar charger, however it is not working with the Bold. It does charge other devices like headset, etc. 


Does anyone have a recommendation for a portable charging pack that is guaranteed to work on the Bold 9700? 


Thanks... Would like a lower cost solution if possible < $50-$60 USD.
