    I will be traveling to Australia and China this summer with my iPad 3g. Both flights are 20 +/- hours. I am hoping to purchase a backup battery pack for the iPad. I have a Morphie pack for my iPhone but it is not compatible with the iPad.

    Does anyone know of a backup battery pack that will work with the iPad?

    Thank you.

    I know HyperMac makes external battery packs just for MacBook computers and on the battery pack it also has a usb port to plug in a iPod or iPhone.

    I'm not sure if the voltage would be compatible, but you can run a iPod or iPhone on them so I don't see why you couldn't run the iPad.

    Sorry I couldn't be any more help.

    Good luck

    Thanks for the feedback. This may not be applicable, but an employee at the local Apple store said the existing Morphie pack (which works for the iphone) is NOT compatible with the iPad so my guess that the same may be true of HyperMac, but I'll check!

    Thanks again.

    Boxwave claims to have a battery backup charger that works with AA batteries. I'll probably be getting it shortly after I get my 3G and give my opinion on it.

    Unless you plan on having it on for 20 hours in a row and not sleep you shouldn't have to worry about charging it. I used mine for almost 16 hours and still had 15% left....that's about another 2 hours. So you should be able to use it for about 8 of the 20 hours....you really should sleep at some point.

    16 hours? That is great! I'll mostly be reading, not watching videos so perhaps I can get that amount of time.

    As to sleep, unfortunately, I cannot sleep on planes! I flew to Beriut via Paris and it was at least a 19 hour trip. I never slep a wink. :(

    Just make sure you don't crank the screen brightness and you will be fine, I keep mine at about 40% and it never dies on me....if you are on a dark plane you could probably go lower and be fine.

    Well it also only uses power when you turn the page...it should technically last years without a charge.
