QuickerTek adds charger

QuickerTek has announced that it is adding another Apple Juicz model to its product line. The Apple Juicz line offers a new way to power the MacBook and MacBook Pro using free and environmentally-concious solar power. A MacBook is able to be powered and charged simultaneously while the 15-inch MacBook Pro can either be charged or powered. Unlike older style solar panels, the new design presented by QuickerTek is flexible and much lighter than the classic thick glass cells. The new solar charger folds to only 10.5 x 9 inches but when unfolded offers 60 x 42 inches of solar charging panels. All models require users to get an upgraded MagSafe power adapter, for which QuickerTek offers two solutions. A user may choose to send in their current MagSafe power adapter which QuickerTek will then modify for $25 or a user may choose to purchase a pre-modified adapter for $100.

The new 58 watt model will retail for $1000 and will be available from QuickerTek's website soon.
