Fastmac Announces High Capacity MacBook Pro Replacement Battery

Fastmac Announces 1st High Capacity Replacement Battery for Apple MacBook
Pro 17-inch; Advanced TruePower Technology Provides Safer Operation & 23%
Cost Savings

Salinas, CA – January 28, 2008
FastMac today announced the first & only high capacity, extended life
battery upgrade for Apple’s 17-inch MacBook Pro computer. The new 71 Whr
battery, which is compatible with all models of the 17-inch MacBook Pro,
uses Lithium-Polymer cells (with integrated charge indicator LEDs) that are
manufactured to the highest quality standards and utilize TruePower
technology to provide a safe computing experience. With this offering,
FastMac rounds out its line of battery upgrades to include ALL models of
MacBook and MacBook Pro computers, thereby becoming the only company,
besides Apple, to offer a full line of batteries for Apple’s newest
portables. Fastmac’s TruePower battery for the MacBook Pro 17-inch is
scheduled to ship within 10 days and is available for pre-order from for a special introductory price of $99.95. Each battery
carries a 1-year warranty and a 30-day money back guarantee.

Fastmac’s TruePower line of battery upgrades replaces the computer’s
original battery with a larger capacity and longer lasting advanced power
cell battery that utilizes TruePower technology. This technology
incorporates sensors in the integrated circuit inside the battery that
detect undesirable levels of swelling or a short circuit that will power
off the battery in certain extreme conditions.

“As a replacement, or a spare, our batteries not only last longer than
Apple’s original, they are also $30 cheaper,” said Michael Lowdermilk,
Business Development Manager for Fastmac Performance Upgrades, Inc.

Fastmac’s line of TruePower batteries for laptops are engineered using the
highest quality, high-capacity Lithium Ion or Polymer cells, keeping safety
in mind at all times. Fastmac utilizes custom form factors and materials to
achieve a superior fit and finish, matching the original battery whilst
increasing capacity. Each battery is individually tested and includes
safety features to protect against overcharge, overheating, short circuits
and power surges. All TruePower batteries carry at least a 1 year warranty
and in some cases, a 2 year warranty. Fastmac’s TruePower line includes
battery upgrades for all iPods & all Apple portables released since 1997,
including the world’s longest lasting PowerBook battery with upto 68% more
capacity than the original. FastMac is also first to market a replacement
battery for all of Apple’s latest MacBook & MacBook Pro portables.

About TruePower

TruePower is the name of an innovative new technology designed to extend
the life of ordinary Lithium Ion cells, commonly used in most rechargeable
batteries. More than 4 years in development, this patented technology
allows tiny ceramic particles (each less than a millionth of a millimeter
in size) to be integrated into the molecular structure of the chemical
binding agent found inside each Lithium Ion battery. These particles then
link-in with each other & a proprietary energy management circuit to create
an extremely dense and highly conductive layer on the surface of a
capacitor-enhanced battery pack. This combination delivers the power
necessary to satisfy the pulse demands placed on most batteries, whilst
ensuring the protection of the Lithium cell matrix. These results in
battery packs that can be recharged many more times as well as yielding
longer run times per charge. Whereas ordinary battery packs start losing
their power within a few months, TruePower-enhanced battery packs continue
giving consistent power for long periods, allowing OEMs to offer warranties
of 2 years or more. More information about TruePower is available via the

About FastMac Batteries

Fastmac’s battery upgrades utilize TruePower technology- a patented
material & energy management circuit that is designed to protect the
battery’s internal lithium crystal matrix from damage caused by power
spikes. These spikes occur when the computer demands a sudden high current
peak- for example, to turn on the backlight or to load the next data
sectors. Over time, these power spikes decrease capacity, runtime and
battery life, eventually rendering the power cells unusable. Through the
use of TruePower technology, the energy management circuit is able to
smooth out the power spikes and lower the rate of decay. This protects the
battery and leads to a longer lifecycle. Not only does this extend the
usability of the computer, it also helps the environment by curbing the
depletion of chemicals and plastic materials used in battery products and
reducing the number of waste batteries sent to landfills. More information
