Power Play

Tired of carrying a briefcase full of AC adapters on every business trip? Belkin's Universal Power Adapter can recharge all your electronic devices-including even the most power-hungry portable-in your car, in a plane, or from any standard AC wall outlet. It provides a full 120 watts of AC/DC power in a package as much as 40 percent smaller than the adapter that shipped with your notebook. By adding optional Intelli-Tip connectors, you can also safely power up an array of other popular brands of handheld devices, including cameras, PDAs, cell phones and portable DVD and MP3 players.
