    Has someone bought a surge protector for their portable? I have used this product for my thinkpad, but I don't know if there is a similar product compatible with Apple's power connector.

    Pretty much any surge protector will do... I haven't found a difference between name brand and el-cheapo surge protectors. I prefer the name brand ones though because they usually have additional plugs for ethernet, cable, etc.

    A full UPS is not needed for obvious reasons... laptops have their own built in battery.

    i'd like to bump this thread, i'm looking for one too and a compact one that would work on both 110v and 220v outlets :) help would be most appreciated :)

    None of these work at 220V, but they are compact:
    I have the first one.

    Any regular 220V surge protector can also be used on 110V, but it won't protect your equipment from surges between 110 and 220V (which should be OK for a universal input power adapter, but would not be OK for something designed to operate only at 110V).
