Ok, we're not gonna lie, $59 is a hefty amount of scratch for what's effectively a Magsafe plug on the one side, and an EmPower power with a standard 20mm power plug. But it's also one of the most effective ways to power -- not charge -- your MacBook or MacBook Pro (Core Duo or C2D) while in flight that we've yet seen. So at least you don't have to feel unnecessarily guilty about watching The Office in DiVX while on your trans-continental since now you won't dip into that reserve power before landing and putting back on that business cap. Just make sure you're seated in a row with power, though -- we've found other fliers are generally pretty unruly when you try and bogart their juice mid-flight.
