QuickerTek Air battery

QuickerTek has released its latest notebook accessory, a new external battery for the MacBook Air. The external pack powers the device while simultaneously charging the internal battery. The company claims users can achieve 12 to 16 total hours of run time, or around 6 to 10 extra hours of power. The charger is also said to charge the internal battery in only three hours.

The product also features a smaller size than the company's other MacBook external batteries, measuring just 7-inches by 3.5-inches. The battery is housed in a machined aluminum case with an anodized finish. QuickerTek claims the cells are capable of up to 1,000 full recharges.

The MacBook Air external batter can be purchased for $350. Customers must also have a QuickerTek-modified MagSafe adapter, which carries a price of $100. An existing MagSafe adapter can be converted for $25.

    works as advertised

    With regular use in the office, was able to work all day on the external battery and with some hours to spare at home. So the clock time (no correction for coffee breaks, lunch, etc.) is about 10-11 hours of work until the
    battery show about 20% of life left. In doing this test, I charged the MacBook Air and the Quickertex battery and kept both connected for the duration. I figure this is enough for the longest plane flight I'll ever take.

    The battery comes with a charger unit and cord-- this adds another 0.8 pounds if you need to carry it along.

    Be aware of the return policy:

    You can return unopened products within 30 days for in store credit or merchandise exchange, less shipping costs.

    Products you have used and returned with 30 days of receipt of purchase in the original packaging qualify for an in store credit or merchandise exchange for 10% of the then current price of the product, less shipping charges.

    In other words, you will not get your money back. So be very sure before purchasing.
