My son bought me a birthday present of a small device with various connections, including a USB one, it includes a ordinary battery, and can be used when you dont have a car charger or mains charger; but the USB connector does not fit my BB Curve 8900 - Maplin say it is not possible to get the connection for the Blackberry as this is unique to Blackberry. I cant see this accessory anywhere on the site for sale. Can anyone help me to locate this. When travelling abroad it would be a boon to have emergency power when not in the car or hotel room.

I don't know who Maplin is... but the 8900 device requires a "MicroUSB" connection.
Most BlackBerrys prior to the 8900 and Storm, used a "MiniUSB" connection.
If your charger contains a MiniUSB, you can get an adaptor fro MiniUSB to MicroUSB. I recently bought five of them.
Would that solve your problem?
