Newer ships new gear
Newer Technology has launched its NewerTech Intelligent Battery Charging Stations for 13-inch Unibody MacBook and 15-inch MacBook Pros released prior to June, 2009. The charger/conditioner models, claimed to be the first-to-market, feature two battery bays for charging multiple batteries. One battery can be charged while another is being conditioned prior to charging.
The deep conditioning feature helps combat the memory effect batteries can develop over numerous charge cycles, improving performance and extending the life of the Unibody batteries.
The NewerTech Intelligent Battery Charging Station is now available for $150 for either 13-inch MacBook (Unibody) or the 15-inch MacBook Pro (Unibody) batteries. Each is rated for 120-240V and comes with a two-year warranty.
