I second the spare charger suggestion. I like to have a charger wherever I use the laptop. That way, I exercise the battery less, which can help it last longer.
Also, buy a high capacity battery. For the Lenovo T60 it makes the battery pack stick out the back about 3/4 inches. It seems like the extra 50% battery capacity makes the laptop last 2 times as long when not plugged in. Must have somehting to do with the voltage that the laptop automatically turns off (voltage under load), since it couldn't be simple capacity thing.
