    What do you think? I picked up a 2nd charger today cause costco has them for $59 (vs $79) as I got tired of having to carry the charger everywhere. Now, I can leave one at the desk, and the other in my room.

    I have a backup charger for most of my portable devices. Especially if they are specialty chargers.

    I have three. The one that came with my SP3, the one that came with the port replicator and a third I got on eBay for sitting in my recliner in my room. Third one goes with me on the road. Got it substantially cheaper than the above.

    I agree, it's totally a MUST to have at least 2 chargers. I have one at my place, one at my GF and one in my bag just in case I'm away too long...

    I have two as well. One for home and the other for the office.

    BTDT, finally just sold my ThinkPad ultraslim AC/DC combo adapter charger kit. Older I get, the more hardware weight I'm unloading. Was the gadget king back in the day, but no more. Now I'm about comfort equals weight (loss).

    I have 3.

    One stays home, one stays at work, one stays in the bag.

    No need for a second one whatsoever for me. Battery has more than enough charge for a full days work.
