I use battery packs from Batteryspace.com.  They seem to
work pretty well.  I've used them with the FT-817, various HT's,
a portable fan, and electrically-heated socks.

   So I'm trying to move away from my big, dumb, heavy sealed lead acid 
   batteries for portable work, at least when I have to lug the gear very 
   far. Has anyone had any experience with something like these: 
   ? That looks like it's pretty compact, and will run a pair of 817s a 
   good while. Any suggestions for a more domestic source would be 
   appreciated as well.
