Add 6 – 10 Hours of Extended Battery for Apple MacBook Air
External Battery Pack Charges and Powers Simultaneously
WICHITA, Kan. –05/12/2008– QuickerTek, the leader in wireless Apple
products, announces an extended battery upgrade for the popular Apple
MacBook Air. Users gain six to ten hours of additional battery power –
beyond the battery life of the built-in battery. This is the only
product that charges the MacBook Air while in use, and for only $299.95
Since the MacBook Air has a non-removeable battery, the typical user
strategy of using multiple batteries is not possible. QuickerTek had
already developed battery charging technology for MacBook and MacBook
Pro laptops, but those solutions did not charge AND power the computer
at the same time. QuickerTek’s MacBook Air External Battery powers and
charges the internal battery while in use.
A total of 12 to 16 hours of Air use are possible when using the
External Battery Charger from QuickerTek. Users know the external
battery is working because the battery charge percentage in the menu
bar stays at 100% for hours, before the internal battery is used. While
the stock MacBook Air recharges in four hours using the AC wall
adapter, the External Battery Charger recharges in only three hours.
Styled to blend with your Apple equipment, the MacBook Air External
Battery Charger is lightweight and good looking. This product should
not be used with MacBooks or MacBook Pro models.

Customers can either send in their MacBook Air MagSafe power adapter

the magSafe is upgraded with military-sepc parts for longer life.
Compatibility with any MacBook Air is maintained.
