Product Description

Style: 60 Wh

Although this 60Wh battery will work with the MacBook Pro 15/17 inch, it is not recommended as the MacBook Pro 15/17 inch draws up to 85W of power. Battery physics dictate that a 60Wh battery is most efficient at providing up to 60W (1C) of power. A 60Wh battery can still provide 85W of power but at lesser efficiency, approximately only 70% of a 60Wh battery capacity will be available to the MacBook Pro 15/17 inch. The remaining battery capacity will still be available to lower power devices like the iPhone. This power limitation affects all batteries with capacities lesser than 85W and is not specific to the HyperJuice. This does not affect the MacBook and MacBook Pro 13 inch which draws up to 45W, 55W and 60W power respectively, which are equal or lesser than 60W. MacBook Pro 15/17 inch users are recommended to use at least a 100Wh battery which can efficiently provide up to 100W (1C) of power. Likewise a 150Wh/222Wh battery can efficiently provide up to 150W/222W of power respectively.

Please do not buy.

Especially if I turn off the wifi (not needed on most plane rides) and dim the display a couple notches.

Their customer support is non-existant.

Style Name: 60 Wh
I''ve had the 60 watt / MBP-060 for about a year. It is very well made with metal enclosure and it charges up quickly. I normally carry two Ipads and a MacBook Pro 13 inch with me working on all three at the same time. I power the Ipads from the USB ports on the Mac and I plug the HyperMac Battery into the Mac's power port.

This being said the Mac, and both Ipads are drawing power from the HyperMac Battery. Doing this, the whole setup runs for about an hour or less.

If I use the HyperMac with just the MacBook Pro 13 inch I get probably about 2 hours of use out of this external battery. This means that if you've used the Mac most of the day and it's now running dead, you can plug in the battery to the Mac and you'll get at least another hour of use to do emails, etc.

I didn't prepare to write this review which is the reason I'm being fairly general, but I noticed there were no other reviews and I'm thinking about getting another one. If it sold for about $50 less, I'd have already done so.

When I looked at the unit online there was some confusion from looking at the website and other information about how you hook it up to the Mac. I thought there was a two-piece cable and some other item I might have to purchase. (One can get lost with words like magsafe, etc.) Actually what you get is the battery, which is very rugged, a charger which plugs into the battery, a charging cable which plugs into the wall and connects to the charger itself, and a separate cable which runs from the battery to the Mac. I leave the charger and charger cable at home and just bring the battery and the supplied power cable which goes from the battery to the Mac when I go somewhere.

I just attached a fully charged 60W Hyperjuice to a a fully charged 2012 MacBook Air 13" . I set the power saving timers so the display would not dim and the system would not go to sleep. Everything else was default. I had the display at maximum brightness. I was doing relatively simple web-surfing and working with a program called Curio. I set the battery display to "Time". When I plugged in the HyperJuice the battery display read "Charged". It remained in this state for 3.75 hours at which time the HyperJuice had run out of juice (the green light has gone off) and the battery display began to show the time remaining which was about 6.5 hours.

So although it won't charge my MBA battery it looks like it will power it for over 3 hours. Unless I am watching a video I would expect to get as much as 10 hours with a combination of this 60W HyperJuice and the built in battery. Especially if I turn off the wifi (not needed on most plane rides) and dim the display a couple notches. (I could probably dim the display by half on most planes.)

Not very scientific but it gives you an idea. My next test is to run down my MBA battery and see how long the 100W would take to charge it - assuming it can.

So the 60W is OK if you need another 2-3 hours of power on your MBA and want the smallest, lightest option. This works nice if you are going light and plan to put this in whatever bag/case you have at your seat. If you are looking for something to charge it overnight or maybe to watch videos for a few hours it may not be enough.

The photo shows magsafe power connectors for the Macbook, but the unit does not come with those Macbook power cords, it does not come with the "magic box" adaptors from Hyperjuice needed for the Macbook.

Style Name: 60 Wh Verified Purchase
I purchased the 60Wh HyperJuice Battery for my Macbook air. I have lived and worked at Bagram, Afghanistan for the last two years. When I use my Air it is tough to always have a plug nearby to ensure I have power. I watch 3.5 to 4 hours of movies with the built-in 37 WHr battery with brighness 1/2 to 2/3 up; so this 60Wh can and does deliver another 6.5 hours of watching movies. It almost triples the amount of time that I can browse with the Internet.

In addition, I can use this to charge my ipad 2, my android phone, and even better, I have a 3.75G dongle with wifi access point. I can plug this into this battery and have high speed Etisalat Internet anyplace I go on the base. In a pinch, there is always a soldier or two who wishes they could check Facebook or send an email. It is easy for me to give them Internet access in a location where that is normally not available. One example....the Red Cross. Another, there are 2 libraries about 15' x 8' at morale, welfare, and recreations centers....no ability to get wireless from either of the two Internet Providers.

This has saved my but. It is worth every penny. It will charge if I buy the appropriate interface from HyperJuice, but I haven't and probably won't purchase it. I highly recommend this. I live in Connecticut, and after the last couple of years of hurricaines, this is the perfect battery that can charge my phone or Ipad several times.

I have to stop praising this product now or I will have an article 10 pages long. It was disconcerting to read that some people who got 6 hours web browsing with the internal 37Whr batter of the smaller Air...think they could get 30 hours of web browsing with this battery. It isn't even twice as large as the internal battery.
