Stuck with with a massive layover (no, not hangover, but that would suck too) at the airport and a dead battery on your laptop is a painstaking experience.  You could be watching a movie, surfing the net or catching up on the latest episode of Gossip Girl.  ‘No longer’ says YoGen Max.  They’ve developed a foot pedal device that when ‘pumped’ produces 60-80 watts, something the company claims is enough to power most laptops.  The device can also hold up to 12 AA rechargeable batteries, meaning more power on the go.  The YoGen Max’s street date and price have yet to be announced, but the maker, Easy Energy, is taking orders from wholesale distributors.
