You head off to your gate, only to receive a call from the airline letting you know your gate moved, so you keep on trekking.  You sit down, plug-in, and hone in on your to-do list.  Fingers flying across the keys, head softly nodding to the ever-present music in your headphones, when BOOM…everything around you goes dark and the dreaded battery low indicator starts flashing again!
