New QuickerTek MB battery

Accessory maker QuickerTek has begun selling a new external battery and charger for Mac notebooks. The device is designed for the latest 13-inch MacBooks, and 15-inch MacBook Pros; it is chiefly said to provide between eight and 10 hours of total running time, as compared to the five made possible by Apple's built-in batteries. Internal batteries are depleted before the QuickerTek one takes effect.

The QuickerTek battery is additionally said to charge in only three hours instead of five, and significantly extend the useful life of a MacBook by separately lasting between 2,000 and 3,000 recharge cycles. A custom LED light shows the external battery's charging status. QuickerTek is selling the new product at retail and from its website for $450.

    This company is going for quicker tech to quicker death, all they do is repackage available technology. I despise them.
