    Why does this device come in two parts...?how many people have left the unit in the socket? The airlines must have a bunch of these things in their lost and found. Replacement is expensive. A major design flaw...am I the only one?

    It comes apart because I believe there is another socket that the device can be used in?

    makes sense

    That would make sense...do you know what the optional plug-in would be?
    Also, do you know of any merchant selling only the socket adapter and not the entire package?
    Thanks

    Some airlines use a standard DC plug like in a car (American Airlines for instance) while others use the 3 pronged "empower" plug (I believe it's called that) such as United domestic. Some newer setups just use the AC adapter directly...

    I just gave my GF the lecture about borrowing mine and being sure to grab the second piece if she uses it.

    I recall using both on flights before, but the smaller plug is more common if I recall.
