Airports often have charging stations for laptops these days, but getting an outlet can still be a challenge. The solution? Travel with a powerboard so you can easily share with others.

We've long included a powerboard on our list of business travel essentials and made the point before that having one makes it easier to share outlets at conferences and other locations such as airports. Redditor jaspersurger raised the point again recently, and it's an idea worth remembering.
If there's only one outlet available, sharing is a no-brainer if you can offer a powerboard. The one context it's less helpful in is when overseas, but at some airports you're likely to find other Aussies who are happy to share as well.
