I do a lot of long distance international flying;up to 14 hours or more flights and would like to have the iPad available during that time. As the battery in the i Pad only lasts up to 8 to 10 hours, is there an accessory battery pack available that is powered by AA batteries or a similar re chargeable battery pack on the market that can then be used when the iPad battery runs flat to give me another 10 hours or so of power?
I have a battery pack by Belkin for my iPod that runs on 4 AA Batteries and is handy when I run out of iPod Power
I have an aircraft recharge pack for my Mac Book pro , but is only of use where I can get on board outlets and not all airlines or aircraft have them available.

Have a look at the Hypermac range. The smallest one (model # MBP-60) will give you approx 30 hrs on your iPad, The largest (MBP-222) ~100 hrs. I have the MBP-100 (50 hrs), and can recommend it.

There are other threads on this and similar external battery solutions - maybe the mods will merge them.

Edit: more info about Hypermac here.
