QuickerTek MacBook battery
QuickerTek has announced a new external battery/charger for the MacBook and 15-inch MacBook Pro. The battery provides users between 8 and 10 extra hours of usage, on top of what a MacBook's internal battery already provides. The casing appears to be brushed aluminum, allowing it to blend in with other Apple products, and features an LED charging status indicator.
The battery takes three hours to reach a full charge, which QuickerTek compares to the four hours it takes to recharge a MacBook's internal model. The new QuickerTek External Battery/Charger retails for $450. A MacBook Air model is also available for $350.
