*Update* Nov 7
I have been using this for a little over a month now and have found it to be a great device, it works every time and can easily get me through a class, even if the computer is dead when I get to class, after 50 min of use the computer will be at 40% ish and the ChugPlug will have a little bit of power left.
3 Boards not counting the 3S Balancing board on the 4AH 3S Pack. 11.1v-12.6v 3S with Balacing and Protection. (This is itself a module in shrink wrap.
AC to RAIL Voltage Board (This board takes the AC power from the Wall and makes it so the Transfer board can use it to charge the battery, and drive the DC to AC Power Invert-er Board.
Transfer board, this board has some circuitry on it, but is a housing for the bridge rectifier, and connects everything via traces, wires, and ICs. It is less packed than the AC-DC or DC-AC boards.
Finally the Power Inverter very simlar to what you have in a car/truck/van. Simple Transformer that takes DC and makes 120VAC 45W-65W to power the Apple Adapter.
So YES, it takes AC, makes DC, then Takes DC and Makes AC again. So in a way, it is very silly way to create a backup battery, but in another way, it is a goldmine of DIY parts waiting for you to jump in. You can also power anything with the 2 pin AC plug, not just the MacBook. I used mine as a UPS for my Gateway Router/AP Controller and it worked great until I couldn't take it anymore and had to find out what is inside. To be clear, it still works, I just dumped the tumor case, and turned it into a combination SMPS that also makes 19.5v 4A + USB in addition to the AC this unit makes stock. 65watts isn't much for AC appliances, but for things that take AC and make DC like iPhone USB Chargers, it is awesome.
So I am buying another and making an instructable on it since no one else has. For 15 bucks this is WAY more than worth it, but be careful it is more than likely cheap because it didn't sell well and it is being liquidated. Try and be fair and not buy them all or ruin a good thing.
So before you even think about opening this thing up, the Wires from the AC board to the AC connectors are NOT soldered. They have a very strange unsafe Paste that connects them NOT a solder weld. It comes off very easily and could injure you, in my opinion all the more reason to fix that factory oversight and do it right. Again electronics are dangerous, but if your a DIY guy, this is the one to grab.
This works almost identical to a VERY expensive Double Conversion commercial UPS for again 15 dollars, not 600. Way different scope of power, but again, it is interesting
When working with electronics do not open anything you do not understand, or cannot evaluation the danger of. This unit has constant AC in 2 forms as well as a Lithium Battery. Be Safe and if you have doubts, don't do it.
Mid 2011 11 inch air. running all the things i need to do support work (including flash based switchboard app in chrome/terminal sessions/etc), as well as an iPad Air 1st gen hooked up with duet display, and streaming iTunes to an Airplay speaker.
got a good 3 hours. :D
clarification: my air will normally only handle about 90 minutes of this load on the built in battery. I got double that using the chugplug.
Make sure you charge the chugplug all the way up, and do not go to off AC until the macbook itself is at 100% charge.
