While many of us may not want to leave the house again now that the traveling rush of the holidays are over, others still need to fly to and fro for work, weddings, or a much needed vacation from the cold. For those of you who are traveling avec laptop you may find this Wiki page extremely useful. The AirPower Wiki page, launched by Microsoft employee Jeff Sandquist, offers a locations of where you can power up your laptop, cell phone, digital camera battery, while waiting for your next flight. Airports from around the world are listed, along with tips of where to grab free WiFi while in the airport...

Boston, MA * Logan has several phone card vending machines which are plugged into dual outlets. The second AC jack is exposed, but you may want to bring a thin extension card because a blocky power adapter won't fit. * There are some tables with outlets near the wall in the dining areas (near Sbarro, Starbucks, etc.), but the cord will go across a walkway, so make sure it's long enough to lay on the ground so you don't trip anybody. * If your flight leaves from a lower level terminal (i.e. near the ground), there are a couple plugs behind the rows of seats. You may have to push the seats out a couple inches to get to them though.

Anyone can add power tips to the Wiki page, and airports can be searched by name of airport code.
