What's your favorite external battery? Given no modular MBA batt, figure this becomes pretty important for extended "away from wall power" time. (Outdoor enthusiasts especially.)

This solar-powered, portable power source looks rather interesting. Possibly used in place of (??) external battery or possibly to charge the external battery "offline."


Brunton Solaris 26 Solar charger - 26 Watt (http://store.bruntonoutdoor.com/portable-power/panels-and-chargers/solaris-26/) (much cheaper on google.com/products listings below)

no idea dude, but solar power looks expensive, i think u should consider the other ones instead of solar power unless u live a very hot place four seasons
