Tim sent me a link to these beauties from APC, which feature a built-in charging system to let you quickly charge all your junk without taking it out of the bag. I was all set to order one (to replace my trusty PATRIOT, which has done yeoman service for two full years, a new record for me). That is, I was ready until I saw this article about new “checkpoint-friendly” laptop bags. The very thought of going through a checkpoint without having to remove my laptop and plunk it into a filthy plastic bin blows my mind. To be sure, I should wait until I can get a checkpoint-friendly bag with an integral charger.
