    That is kind of cool...cant imagine that you would need it for a flight in the US but if you had a transatlantic flight, that would be great.

    I don't get it - so it basically provides a trickle charge? Does that mean it could not power a Treo while the Treo PDA functions are in active use?

    So how long would you have to keep it plugged in before the entire battery would be charged?

    A trickle charge doesn't seem very effective, unless it's an emergency perhaps. And then you'd need a pretty long flight to get a useable charge out of it. Thoughts?

    I agree. I remembered how useless trying to use those 9 Volt emergency charger to charge my Zire 71. It doesn't do a good job. It may supply some battery juice, but certainly not enough to charge it completely.

    In my opinion, it sounds like a great idea but I don't think it's feasible.

    Based on what I read, it takes 3 to 5 minutes to charge and can provide 1 minute of power! Don't see that as very useful. Hopefully we will see more planes with inflight power coming over time.

    I wouldn't carry this thing either, though I do need a second battery on cross-country flights. It's a cool idea though.
