I'm about to go on a plane, and I've seen some phone plugs for people who wish to send faxes or place a call using the plane's phone system.

I was wondering, since my flight will be many hours long, if I could make a custom wire that could use the power from the phone line to charge or simply keep my zaurus's battery from running out. If I can garantee a 5v 1A power through some converter or something, that could be useful..

I'll do some research on the web to see if it's possible...

i had forgoten abunt this but dont airplanes have special sockets that provide power that you have to pay stupid amounts of maney for the socket converter?

i just saw a kit that had every type of connector for use an planes

fuses are good for current but i was refering to a diffrence in the voltage you expect and the voltage you get plus other things such a noise on the line from the mechanical systems
