Ever had your MP3 player run out of juice mid-flight? Is there anything more annoying than having several hours left in the air without being able to power on your portable game console. Well, this might just be a problem of the past if we're to believe the claims of the Inflight USB Power Unit.

 

This is a nifty little box that allows you to draw power from the airplanes audio socket and it outputs regulated 5V power that allows you to charge a variety of devices.

 

 

You can charge pretty much any device that connects and charges via a standard USB connector, although two different adaptors are available, one for iPod's and one is a mini USB connector.

 

Starting at US$34.99 this is a clever device that is ideal for long haul flights as it allows you to boost the battery life of your portable gadgetse, mobile phones and what not.
