I think thats what I'm going to have to do.  I got that idea reading "Hardware 
Hacking Projects."  They suggested stringing D-cells together.  I like your idea of 
getting a ready made rechargeable more though.

Unfortunately with the new laptops its more difficult - for example dell makes a 
proprietary port for the charger, so you at least have to buy an overpriced charger 
or open the back of it.
