POWER TO THE TRAVELER
I travel a lot and one of my great frustrations is searching for a free electrical outlet in an airport to recharge my laptop and cell phone. Suggestions?

There’s a product for people like you. The XPower PowerSource Mobile 100, a pocket-size rechargeable lithium-ion battery, can recharge a laptop to run for two hours, a cell phone for 12 hours or a BlackBerry for 34 hours. It can be recharged 300 times before the battery needs replacement. It comes with two sockets for USB cords and has a standard AC outlet so you don’t need any additional adapter plugs. The $129 device weighs about a pound. (Details: www.xantrex.com . )
