is there an app that can turn off battery charging while plugged in?

I regularly fly from Australia to Europe (22 hours on the plane!) but the power outlet usually stalls when draining too much power

(e.g. 85 Watts for my Macbook Pro battery).

Any solutions available?

I used to just take out the battery, however, that  is not possible anymore on the Macbook Pro.

Thanks for your help.


MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
