FastMac Announces Longest Lasting iPod Battery Upgrade Utilizing
Salinas, CA — June 20, 2005 — FastMac announces an iPod battery upgrade
that utilizes patented nanoparticle technology to dramatically extend
battery lifespan. This upgrade is available for generation 1, 2, and 3
iPods and comes with an industry first 2-year warranty and 30 day money
The FastMac upgrade replaces the iPod’s original internal Lithium-Polymer
or Lithium-Ion battery with a larger capacity and longer lasting advanced
power cell. The upgrade offers up to 70% more capacity than the original
and up to 7.5 times as many charge cycles. This is accomplished through the
use of patented nanoparticle technology codenamed “TruePower,” which
significantly slows the degradation of the battery.
“If you’re spending more time recharging your iPod than you are actually
using it, this upgrade is for you” said Michael Lowdermilk, Business
Development Manager for FastMac Performance Upgrades. “This really is the
last battery your iPod will ever need.”
FastMac’s TruePower technology protects and prevents damage to the
battery’s internal lithium crystal matrix caused by power spikes. These
spikes occur when an iPod demands a sudden high current peak, for example
to turn on the backlight or load the next few songs. Over time they
decrease capacity, runtime, and battery life, eventually rendering the
power cell unusable.
Through the use of TruePower technology the upgrade is able to smooth out
these power spikes. This protects the battery and leads to a longer
lifecycle. Without the TruePower technology the power cells are left
unprotected and would steadily decrease in capacity after each charge cycle.
By extending the battery’s life the FastMac upgrade also helps the
environment by curbing the depletion of materials used in battery products
and reducing the number of waste batteries in landfills.
