Apple Juicz battery ships
QuickerTek has launched a new external battery, the Apple Juicz, for iPhones, the iPod touch and other iPods. The 2200 mAh polymerized Lithium-ion battery measures 1.75- x 2.5- x .375-inch and connects through the data port and offers roughly three times the battery life of the iPhone internal battery. The Apple Juicz is rated for an additional 30 hours of music, six additional hours of video or three extra hours of talk time when used with an iPhone. the battery charges via the iPhone's USB charging cable, taking about three hours to fully charge. It has a built-in LED battery level indicator.
The Apple Juicz also charges the iPhone's battery while providing power, rather than simply leaving the internal battery depleted, so it can be detached for more mobile use without requiring a return to a charging station. The battery works with any iPhone or iPod that uses a 30-pin connector. The new battery costs $45.
