Airline power management

So you just boarded your flight and plan on getting some work done on the old computer. Uh-oh, your laptop battery is just about dead! What to do?

Not a problem on some flights.

Look for a lightning symbol on the bulkhead just below the overhead luggage bin. That means there is an electrical outlet in the row of seats below.

Look underneath the middle seat (ask your seat mates if they mind; people have a problem with others reaching beneath their feet unannounced).

Under the seat there should be an outlet like one found in your automobile (in the old days, they were called cigarette lighters, but now they are known as power outlets).

You will need a power adapter which will plug into the plane power outlet and provide your computer or cell phone with a standard AC outlet. I found a neat one on Amazon which works quite well. this product

Now your computer, cell phone and laptop can all be charging in flight while you work. Pretty neat.

Remember to not leave your adapter or power cable behind on the plane!
