3 ways to keep your in-flight gadgets charged
You've no doubt heard the good news: The FAA lifted its ban on the use of portable electronic devices under 10,000 feet. Now, when we're waiting out delays on the tarmac, we can actually use that time productively, reading our e-books or watching movies on our iPads. All of that additional electronics usage raises a problem, though: How do we keep our devices powered up all the way from takeoff to touchdown when there are no power outlets?
Carry a portable power charger.
The Mophie Powerstation weighs a little more (4.4 ounces) but offers enough power for effective charging of tablets like the iPad.
Pack a small power strip.
If you've ever seen the crowds hovering around an airport power outlet, you know why bringing your own mini-power strip or outlet splitter is smart.
Schedule more time between connecting flights.
We’re not kidding. If a connection is necessary, we’ll make sure the layover is long enough to allow us to recharge my devices for the next flight.
