do planes have outlets?

my laptop battery no longer holds a charge and needs an outlet. Is there an outlet for the window seat and the aisle seat

Update:

the battery is not easily removable without unscrewing the back

    Yes.  Every plane I have flown on in the last 20 years or so has had outlets, even in "coach".

    You might have to upgrade to business class to have an outlet.  Check with the airline.

    All commercial airliners have at least one 117VAC/400 cycle outlet at least in the bathroom. Many have a few in passenger compartment; that depends. I always make sure my camera, etc, fully charged before I go on any trip, I've Learned.  I even carry 12 volt chargers just in case, both fit in a cig liter socket.

    Source(s): REF: In an A & P class, we learned of A/c electrical, the inverters and 28 volt batteries. Even old 737's from 1985 have inverters or dynamotors or APCs and and AC outlets.

    do planes have outlets? YES some do.

    Do all planes? NO

    Will yours? MAYBE

    the battery is not easily removable without unscrewing the back  SO WHAT. If it needs a new battery then it needs a new battery.

    If you want a specific answer for a certain airline for a certain type of plane and a specific route then ask. Seat Guru can usually tell you.

    Hundreds of Airlines and THOUSANDS of planes do not have plugs.Some do.

    Yours MIGHT.

      It's  an Outlet, Not a "plug". Plug has male pins, the load side; outlet or socket  has Female pins, as it's the Line side.

    Only newer aircraft might have a USB outlet so you can hook up your laptop. Thinking the Boeing 787 may be one of the newer aircraft that has such? Can't recollect, only flew two 787's in the past six years.

    Most airplanes don't have outlets. Go on eBay and get yourself a new battery they're usually $20 or less

      Most Commercial Airliners like what He describes, DO have 117VAC/400 cycle outlets. At least One in the Loo.

    Depends entirely on the airline you're flying with and whether its international/domestic, although I'm sure most first class seats probably do have them. From my experience, they're rarely there and if they are, they don't work half the time.

    It depends on the airline and plane. There’s no way to give you a solid answer without knowing those things.
