does anyone know of a small external hard drive with its own battery? I would like one for my pocket pc and it would be nice to use with my desktop machines too.
requirements:
battery (2 hours of life minimum)
relativly small
tough
20+ gigs
usb

In battle Israel uses F-16's and big ass tanks, Palestine uses small children strapped to bombs. Which do you support?

No. The problems are size and weight. You could build your own battery pack, Radio Shack has the battery trays, I suggest NiMH batteries.

Why not Lithium?

I've had my best luck in NiMH batteries when it comes to devices that draw a lot of power. I think other types are better for devices that draw less power over a longer period of time (say, half the wattage for twice as long).
