    some manufacter sell a AC aircraft adaptor, but TRUTHLY an airplane won't let you use it, a 2nd battery is your best option.

    Also, Set you screen to lowest brightness, dont use CDs (moving parts use more battery life), disable onboard NIC (think in dell quicklaunch in programs)

    All the best

    id like to reiterate, u wont be able to use ur laptop on flight!

    hope not helping someone do this... see link

    Check with the airline too, I believe several are now not allowing you to carry spare batterys.
