Devices aid with batteries, headphones
Koyono has introduced two new products for its line of Mac and iPhone accessories, the HyperMac and the Magneat. The HyperMac is an external battery and car charger designed for all MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro notebooks, as well as all three iPhone models. It features a 5V/1A USB power port, which enables it to charge any USB-powered device and Mac simultaneously. It also supports both 16.5V and 18.5V output for different device requirements, adjusting automatically.
The HyperMac can be recharged up to 1,000 times, and is said to extend the battery life of Macs to anywhere between 11.8 and 25.1 hours depending on both the notebook and the capacity of HyperMac chosen.
The Magneat helps prevent headphone wires from tangling, wrapping them around a circular device with integrated magnets. The length of cords can be adjusted, and users can clip a Magneat onto their shirt to prevent cords from swinging. Four different colors are available: black, green, red and white.
HyperMacs are priced at $200 for 60W, $300 for 100W, and $400 for 150W. The Magneat is currently on sale for $13, but will normally cost $15.
