FastMac debuts MBP battery

FastMac today debuted the first high capacity, extended life battery upgrade for Apple's 15-inch MacBook Pro (MBP). The new 62-watt/hour battery uses Lithium-Polymer cells with integrated charge indicator LEDs that utilize TruePower technology for increased safety during use, and lasts around 5 percent longer than Apple's default battery. TruePower technology incorporates sensors in the integrated circuit inside the battery that detect undesirable levels of swelling or a short circuit that will power off the battery in certain extreme conditions. TruePower batteries do not contain or use any Sony cells that are subject to the recent series of recalls issued by major computer manufacturers, according to FastMac. The TruePower battery for 15-inch MacBook Pro is scheduled to ship within 10 days for $100 with a 30-day money back guarantee, and is already available for pre-order.

    Units AGAIN

    That's watt hour, not watt/hour.

    Extended life?

    Not by much, the standard battery is 60 Wh.
