Exactly what I'm dealing with.
Being a remote working graphic designer, I'm able to travel when I like for the most part but have no way to charge the macbook when on the road, other than the above mentioned of the hotel or wherever you may be. I zip tied a $5 dc power outlet on the bike for the phone.
When I stop, outlets are usually my main concern. I've pulled 8 hr work days at coffee shops truck stops and rest stops always keeping plugged in for the precious juice, not knowing what later is going to be like. I've crushed the 5hr battery life the laptop says is left in 3.
But there's always the moment where I'm in the middle of nowhere sitting by a creek or somewhere in the plains, or by tent making a final change to a graphic, attach to email and the comp dies before it sends. Race against time.
McDonalds and such used to be a guarantee for electric, here recently it seems the outlets have vanished, leading me to believe they don't appreciate my visit and my electric needs.
I've kept an eye out for a macbook safe charger, but afraid of whats out there as I can't risk loosing work.
Question, in this supposed mobile culture and access to anything with your fingers, why hasn't apple covered this? It's their fault we're all in this position of living by the gadget.
For the mean time, it's wall sockets for me and the continual search goes on....
