Reduce travel gear by one device with AirPort Express

But why not just use your macbook to charge your phone, I've never carried my charger! Good idea about the Express for Wireless though.

Airport Express but no laptop?

My point as well, do people travel with an Airport Express and without a laptop? (Or with a laptop but no laptop charger?). Maybe if you travel with an iPhone alone but abroad or outside of 3G coverage (or with an iPod touch alone).

That's exactly the reason. I no longer need to lug around a huge laptop when I travel, and worry about it getting stolen or damaged. My iPhone can get me my google maps, nearby restaurants, casual surfing if the hotel TV stinks, and my email. This is a great idea.

Because the iPod doesn't charge via USB when the laptop is asleep. For that reason, I still bring my old firewire iPod cable to charge the iPod overnight. I wish Apple still supported Firewire for synching the iPod.

Maybe it's just the older laptops? I have a MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo (late 2006) and it charges via USB just fine when asleep.
