    I am travelling to Europe next week and will be travelling on the road quite often. I would like to get some work done during that time. My laptop battery will inevitably run out of power during that time and I would like to carry an additional power source with me so I can get some extra juice when I am nowhere near an outlet.

    I have the latest MacBook Pro where the battery is not removable.

    Where can I get an additional power source for my MacBook Pro? I don't mind if it is a 3rd party product.

    Are you asking about where you can get another power supply? You can't get a battery for it.

    Why not take your adapter from home and plug in when near an outlet?

    Thanks for your suggestion stuaz, but I may be on the road for many hours and not near an outlet. Is there no 3rd party product that will hold a charge which I can plug my battery into? Surely there are many business travellers who encounter this problem?

    Look up HyperJuice of you want an even bigger external battery. They have 4 different sizes.

    You can get a ac inverter for your car and then just charge the laptop with the power cord while driving.

    Good idea but I would also like to add if you go this route don't just buy the cheapest available. I have personally seen crappy ones start on fire inside the vehicle. At least make sure it can handle your peak power output requirements.
