QuickerTek has announced an updated External Battery/Charger for the new Apple 17-inch unibody aluminum MacBook Pro laptop. This external battery and charger recharges and powers the big MacBook Pro with up to 18 total hours of additional computing power - before the internal battery is used. It's available from QuickerTek and dealers for $499.95 USD.

This product expands the battery/charger technology first developed for the original MacBook and MacBook Pro models. Up to 18 extra hours of battery power - beyond the built in battery life - allows for long airline flights, extended time outdoors, longer photo shoots on location and plenty of time with friends at the coffee shop.

Users can expect from 11.5 to 18 additional hours of battery power in the 17-inch unibody aluminum MacBook Pro when using the External Battery/Charger from QuickerTek. Users easily see how long the external battery is powering the 17-inch MacBook Pro by checking the battery charge indicator in the menu bar, which stays at 100% practically all day, before the internal battery is used. This battery also charges the internal MacBook Pro battery while you use it.

Rick Estes, QuickerTek president, stated, "This new battery and charger not only gives you all-day performance, but it also enables a longer wireless experience, by providing all the extended power needed when mobile. It looks good and it's easy to carry with you when you travel. This battery technology is now 25% more dense - so we can pack more power into a smaller size," he concluded.

This battery works with 120 and 240 volt AC power and a European power adapter is also available. It also is designed for 1,000 full recharge cycles - three times more than a standard battery. Styled to blend with your Apple equipment, the MacBook Pro External Battery/Charger is small, lightweight and good looking, making it ideal for mobile Mac users.
