DigitalLife 2006: Universal power for laptops

Antec, known for its PC cases and power supplies, had a particularly useful gadget on hand at DigitalLife for laptop users. The recently introduced NP100 is a universal laptop power adapter, which must sound like a pretty good idea to anyone who has ever gone crazy digging around for an elusive A/C adapter while their battery life ticked away.

Compatible with most Dell, HP, Lenovo, Sony, and Toshiba laptops, the NP100 includes a series of interchangeable connectors and a switch to control output voltage for different laptop models. Of course, it would be great if laptop manufacturers would agree to a standard power cable (like desktop PCs), but we suppose they'll have to get in line behind the digital camera and MP3 player camps.
