Power Accessories

For now, no laptop can last all day. Even eight hours won’t handle everything you may need, but most Tablet PCs offer only between two and four hours of battery life. This leaves a large need for lots of juice.

If you travel a lot, you will need alternate power. You’ll probably want to have extra batteries (I carry two extra) on hand. More than one AC adapter is common (I leave one at the office, one at home, and one in my bag) and probably desired. A car adapter or AC/DC inverter can help if you’re car-bound. And an airline adapter can help if you’re often on an airplane.
