You can plug in on some airlines. Some have longer batteries than 4 hours. For some you can buy extra battery packs.

Even if it's only 4 hours it's worth it. If you do a stopover en route you can recharge there, then it's 4 hours of a 10/12 hour flight.

I've seen them with a battery life of about 5 hours.

Extra battery backs.

But allowing for take off and landing when you are not allowed to use them, eating when it is impossible to use them and the fact that the kids will do other things and not watch them non-stop then four hours is actually quite a long time.
