It's quite likely that on a grander scale of things, it's better economy 
that the few people who want to use their laptop the whole flight, do get 
two batteries, than doing the investment of putting AC power in all seats.

Otoh, more batteries on planes increases the risk of fire due to exploding 
batteries happening in the plane :P
