[prMac.com] Wichita, Kansas - December 22, 2007 - QuickerTek, the undisputed leader in wireless Macintosh products, announces a more rugged case for the ever-popular Quicky Mac wireless booster. Customer feedback told us that if there was any improvement to be made, it was to make the product more road-worthy. Since the majority of our customers are mobile wireless users, it makes perfect sense to harden the case to withstand use on-the-go.
The Quicky case is now tougher, using the latest manufacturing methods to construct a case that will deliver years of active mobile use. Wireless performance is not hindered in any way and customers need not sacrifice anything.
Quicky users get up to ten times the wireless range of a stock iBook or MacBook. More wireless networks are accessible so that using the internet further away from an AirPort Base Station or other wireless access point at a coffee shop or office. And instead of moving away from the wireless network and losing signal strength and speed, Quicky delivers full speed at longer distances.
The Quicky's 500 milliwatt RF transceiver boosts wireless signals from virtually any wireless network. Mac portables offer between 25 and 30 milliwatts of RF power, but when you plug the Quicky into the USB port, you instantly get 10 times the range and at full wireless speed. And there are no extra steps for the user, it just plugs in and works automatically (after initial software installation). Quicky is fully compatible with all Apple AirPort Base Stations on a Mac running Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, including Leopard (10.5x).
Like most QuickerTek products, the Quicky is backed with a one-year warranty on parts and labor. Additional product information is found at the QuickerTek website.
