Looking for Power outlets


Have you been in situation where you hunt around for power outlets? (via Slashdot)

Every day, millions of people are finding themselves scurrying about in search of wells of electricity they can tap so their battery-powered mobile devices can remain mobile. Dependence is growing on laptops, cellular telephones, digital music players, digital cameras, camcorders, personal organizers, portable DVD players and the latest hand-held gaming devices – most of which operate on rechargeable lithium-ion batteries – and finding available electrical outlets away from home and office has become more urgent.

I know I do very often, especially during travelling. Ever since switching to Powerbook for my daily use, the one I missed most is the 8hrs battery life I got from my previous Toshiba. (not to mention the lighter weight). It is common for me to end up in MacDonald or Starhub while hunting for a power outlet, and if I am lucky, have some of their Wifi too.
