There's this:

HyperJuice External Battery for Apple MacBook, iPad, iPhone, USB Devices

Also note that Mavericks extends battery life a bit.

thanks, S, quickly looking at the site, everything is confusing, too bad they cannot just quickly say how it works.

I thinking: something exist where once your laptop is dead, then you just plug it into something and it's now alive for another 5-6 hours?
Is that what this is? I'll probably also call BH Photo and see what they advise...

For $129, Apple will replace the battery.

I wouldn't even bother with an external battery.

In my experience, those don't last long, and lose capacity much quicker than Apple's batteries.

the Battery is fine T, there does not exist, something I can plug into after 4-5 hours?

Even if it hasn't, unless you're flying business, there's no guarantee that you'll have power.

Only in newer planes you will find power consistently in economy.
