When doesn’t your laptop need a little extra juice? From a long flight to a power outage at home, this universal battery could rescue that important file or save you from hours of boredom.

The APC Universal Laptop Battery gives you an extra six hours of electricity, all in the size of a thin laptop. We like it because it’s not limited to a particular brand or model. It could also charge any USB device, including MP3-players, headsets or cell phones.

We applaud it’s attempt to double as a laptop stand, but can’t imagine that it is practical choice. Batteries get hot, your laptop gets hot…add those two together and we’re not convinced it’s a suitable solution.
