Never Run Out of Juice

The AC adapter that came with your laptop is probably a fairly one-dimensional device. It can charge only one thing (your notebook), and it can obtain power from only one place (a wall outlet). A couple of new products let you ditch your boring old brick in favor of something more flexible. For starters, check out Kensington’s Wall/Auto/Air Notebook Power Adapter with USB Power Port ($US140), which comes with adapters that let you charge from outlet power, from your car's 12V adapter, or from airplane power ports; several included adapter tips work with most major laptops out of the box, and you can buy additional tip packages for other devices. As a bonus, a USB port lets you charge a phone or MP3 player directly from the brick.
