Any iPad battery extenders out yet?
I'm going on a flight to Europe this week and realized I probably won't get 10 hours of battery when playing movies on my iPad. I've seen battery extenders for the iPhone, do any of these work on the iPad or does anyone have any info on other devices?
I know how to best manage the battery life, what I'm looking for is hardware that can boost the battery life.
(unfortunately this time I won't be in business class, so no plugging in)

In the event that you must rely on the internal battery, we would appreciate a report on whether or not it lasted the whole trip.

I got a Sparq shortly after they first came out. Used one of the nice discounts they often give (I have a 40% coupon right now if you need it before the end of May when it expires). They had some problems with some of the first batch, and offered everyone who'd purchased one an exchange for the 2nd generation model. So right now I'm using the original and waiting for the new ones to become available so they'll change them out. I never had any problems...but I didn't want to take the chance!

I have the Xpal Power XP18000 which is a 1800mah but it will not charge the Ipad. Ipad says not charging. When i looked at the Usb output on the battiery it is rated 5v+1000ma which is 1amp the Ipad needs 2amp to charge, if you look at the output on the power adaptor for ipad it is 5v 2amp. So if you guys are looking around, please check to make sure it is 5v 2amp/2000ma or it most likely wont work.

I would really be more worried about seat size than battery life. I have found that my computer use is a function of seat size; the bigger the seat, the more I use the computer.
