Mobility Electronics has released a new product aimed at the serious roadwarrior. Itis called the Juice, or the iGo Juice if you look at the Web site, and it will simultaneously provide power to your PowerBook/iBook along with your cell phone/PDA (with an optional accessory). It will do this from a regular wall socket (home or office), in a car, or on an airliner (assuming the flight offers power, of course). It does this by including different power cords with the power supply. From Mobility:
