Results of the study show that 79 percent of air travelers admit that it is important to have their own portable power for their devices while traveling, yet over half of the survey respondents, 54 percent, reported sitting on the floor to use an airport's power outlet and 31 percent say they have walked to a different terminal to find an outlet.(1) In the survey, 25 percent of air travelers would even give up a first class seat in exchange for a mobile power source.
