    Oooooh hohoho – perfect timing. I’m looking forward to a long flight from the West Coast to Germany, and I’ve been pondering how I can extend the battery life of my PSP – I have a third-party cord that uses USB to connect to a PC as well as split off to Sony’s DC power plug (the yellow tipped ones are 12V, yes?).

    Not to mention allowing me to recharge my iPod mid-flight. Possibly even my Razr – at this rate, why bother with the hassle of voltage converter at all? Wheeee!

    Yeah, that’s not really that impressive. I know at least three people in grade ten who can make those themselves (or adapt from a 9v, for that matter)

    ps i don’t think they’d allow those on an airplanes (safety hazard).
