If you have lots of gadgets and gizmo's that recharge with a USB port and you fly a lot, this is THE gadget accessory for you.
Even economy class has headphone jacks, what if you could recharge your USB gizmo's through that headphone jack? This is a must have for geeks who love to travel.
Inflight Power has a slick adapter that you plug into the headphone jack on the airliner that can power and charge your USB devices. At only 12 ounces, it won't take up a lot of the already limited space you are allotted for carry on items.
The adapter works by allowing a trickle charge from the headphone jack to build up over about 3-5 minutes inside the adapter. Once done enough power is stored to power whatever is connected for about one minute, then the process starts over again.
The device sells for around $35 in a variety of configurations. If you are looking to charge a cell phone, you'll need a particular adapter. Your MP3 player will obviously use another type. The unit uses Gomadic's TipExchange, allowing you to attach different tips for different devices.
