Solar Power Now Available for All Apple MacBooks
December 1, 2009 in Technology
[prMac.com] Wichita, Kansas - QuickerTek now offers solar power for the entire Apple MacBook line of popular laptops and unibody Macs and just released white MacBook. We now power the entire MacBook line including the 13.3, 15 and 17 inch unibody Pros and the white MacBook. There are two Apple Juicz models available: 27 watt and 55 watt, to match your performance needs.
The addition of all the MacBook and MacBook Pro models to the previous MacBook Air completes the solar compatibility. MacBook users are no longer tethered to the AC wall outlet. The freedom to work where you want, makes the solar charger from QuickerTek very popular with all users-but especially in tough environments.
One of our users has taken the Apple Juicz Solar Charger to Mount Everest. This feat helps demonstrate the extreme durability and flexibility that MacBook users can expect. Not every Solar Charger user will take their laptop to the world's tallest peak, but knowing that is is built tough enough, adds confidence when hiking in the woods, spending a week at an island beach, a month on your boat or just working in your own back yard.
The Apple Juicz also folds up for easy transport. Even though the sun gathering power is remarkable, the folding solar collection panels make it practical to use~something that has been lacking in solar technology to date. The Apple Juicz Solar Charger also comes complete with all cables to make "going solar" as easy as it should be. Users don't need to make any adjustments to take full advantage of the ever-present renewable resource~the sun.
