Requires extra Apple accessory to work
HyperMac has begun selling a new series of external batteries compliant with a settlement with Apple. 60Wh, 100Wh, 150Wh and 222Wh models are available at costs ranging from $179 to $450. The accessories are primarily meant to power or recharge MacBooks, iPads and iPhones.
No word on future of magnetic connectors
Sanho, HyperMac's parent company, has agreed to change its sub-brand's name in the wake of an Apple lawsuit which forced it to stop selling products with MagSafe adapters. Also targeted have been batteries which come with 30-pin dock connectors meant for iOS handhelds. "In the coming weeks, the 'HyperMac' brand name will be renamed to 'HyperJuice' as part of our ongoing comprehensive licensing negotiations with Apple regarding a wide array of technologies and issues," says Sanho president Daniel Chin in a press release.
