I'd argue that's just one of the risks you run with a laptop.  In a laptop
you've typically got one battery, one charger, one screen, one disk (SSD or
not), a less reliable DVD drive.  I'm just not convinced SSDs are the pit of
doom you seem to think they are.  I'd personally guess that coffee is a bigger
threat to travelling laptops than SSD failures.
