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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
