A power hobo is one of the hopeless many typically found in bus stations, airports, Starbucks and other public locations scrounging around for a power outlet.

Unlike hobos who may congregate around a fire in the winter to keep warm, power hobos congregate around the scarce resources offered by 2 three prong outlets that are sparingly located. Typically you can hear them say "hey is there an outlet back there" or "could you spare a few minutes for me to plug into your power outlet".
The flight was late and the power hobos began to drift through the airport looking for a spare power outlet. Buddy can you spare a watt.
