Only thing I can find is hyperjuice and I don't want to cut up a good magsafe cable.

the device runs off USB power, so yes

I use gadgets from Dealextreme.com for my car equipment. They have kits for all kinds of Apple tech.

They're cheap, poorly made (sometimes) though they do the job.

Keep in mind, recharging a computer via a ciggy socket is on the the worst things you can do to your smartphone/tablet/laptop.

cry a little bit more, when was the last time you needed to use a laptop for more than 7 hours without being anywhere near a power plug?
my MBP is now a year old and I can still use it constantly for 7 hours without a charge

use an inverter, it's wasteful in terms of efficiency but you get what you pay for with a good pure sinewave inverter

Plane doesn't have power points for laptops. Well it does for business and premium economy but no economy.

Hardware, got your rags or something?

Would you need a pure sinewave inverter for the plug pack? I get that you'd want one with a PC but wouldn't the internal battery smooth out any power fluctuations? Or would it just fry the plugpack?
