[prMac.com] Wichita, Kansas - QuickerTek, the leader in power and wireless Apple products, announces an exclusive extended life battery for all models of the Apple MacBook Air. Users gain six to ten hours of additional battery power - beyond the power of the built-in battery. This is the only product that charges the internal battery of the MacBook Air while in use.
New Technology allows 25% more power from a smaller physical size battery. This produces not only a smaller battery, but also longer battery power. For those Air users who are looking for a way to get around the MacBook Air's non-removable battery, this new external battery adds the mobile power most often requested. Air users can't drag a few extra batteries around with them to get enough battery life - a tactic often by other laptop owners. And, QuickerTek's new MacBook Air External Battery powers the MacBook Air and charges the internal battery while in use.
A total of 12 to 14 hours of MacBook Air use are now possible. Users immediately notice the power of the external battery when the battery charge percentage icon in the menu bar remains at 100% for several hours, before the internal battery is used. Styled to blend with your Apple equipment, the new MacBook Air External Battery Charger is housed in a machined aluminum anodized case. It comes with a molded MacBook Air charger, an external battery charger and is built for three times the standard recharge cycles - 1000 full recharges, typically 2000 cycles.
