External Battery for MacBook Air Offers 8 to 12 Hours of Additional Power

QuickerTek announced the release of an external battery for the MacBook Air on Monday that offers users eight to twelve hours of additional battery power beyond the power of the built-in battery.

This battery charges the internal battery of the MacBook Air while in use. It provides the additional battery life that compliments MacBook Air's non-removeable battery.

The unit requires a QuickerTek-modified MacBook Air MagSafe power adapter. Customers can either send in their MacBook Air MagSafe power adapter for an upgrade for US$25, or buy an upgraded MagSafe adapter for use with the new MacBook Air External Battery Charger for US$100.

The Extended battery Life Charger is available through QuickerTek for US$349.95.
