Use one of your old chargers plugged in to your desk at home (or wherever you normally charge at home) with this adapter.

I have my old, original magsafe adapter that came with my Jan 2006 macbook pro plugged in at my desk at home. It's lasted so long simply because it stays in that one location and never moves.
