Everyone seems to be hooking on to the point where I mentioned the PRS-700 charger is ugly. In fact, that is the secondary point, PEOPLE!!! :-) The primary point is that the PRS-700 charger is HEAVY and CLUNKY. Then I added "and besides, ugly".
So, the point is that I don't want a heavy and clunky charger because that defeats the purpose of portability.
