Press Release – Magic Box Makes HyperJuice External MacBook Batteries MagSafe Compatible

Also Allows External MacBook Batteries To Be Recharged With MacBook Power Adapter

PRE-MACWORLD 2011 SAN FRANCISCO, California – January 24, 2011, Sanho Corporation (Booth 710), makers of HyperJuice/HyperMac External Batteries for Apple MacBooks today announce Magic Box – two small adapter boxes that allow MacBook users to easily make their own HyperJuice compatible MagSafe charging cables from their existing MagSafe Power Adapters. With these modified cables, MacBooks can be powered and recharged with external batteries from HyperJuice. The Magic Box also allows the HyperJuice external batteries to be recharged by the same MagSafe Power Adapters, eliminating the need for a separate HyperJuice charger.

Magic Box improves upon the earlier 10 Minute MagSafe DIY Modification Process first demonstrated at CES 2011. In addition to the modification time being brought down from 10 minutes to just 2 minutes, a new functionality is added – the ability to recharge the HyperJuice External MacBook Batteries with the newly modified MagSafe Power Adapters.

Approximately the size of the Apple iPad 10W USB Power Adapter, the Magic Box slides open to reveal 2 spring locked terminals which fix onto the cord of the MagSafe Power Adapter. Designed to be extremely user friendly and accessible to users of all technical backgrounds, detailed photo and video instructions will show users how to split the power cord into 2 separate (positive and negative) wires and connect to the Magic Box in under 2 minutes, 1 minute for each of the two Magic Boxes. No special skills, tools, soldering or complex wiring required. The shorter Magic Box connects to the MagSafe connector end of the cord while the longer Magic Box with built-in charging circuitry connects to the power adapter end. Users can continue to use their MagSafe Power Adapter as normal; or disconnect the MagSafe cable from the MagSafe Power Adapter and use it with the HyperJuice External Battery or Car Charger to power and recharge their MacBooks; or use just the modified MagSafe Power Adapter to recharge the HyperJuice.

Apple MacBooks today feature integrated, non-user replaceable batteries. Proprietary charging connectors meant that MacBooks can only be officially powered from the electric outlet with the MagSafe Power Adapter or MagSafe Airline Adapter. HyperJuice remains the only viable external battery solution to extend the MacBook’s mobile computing time beyond the power grid.

HyperJuice External MacBook Batteries are compatible with all MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models. Available in 4 different capacities of 60Wh, 100Wh, 150Wh and 222Wh (compared to 11″ MacBook Air battery which is only 35Wh). HyperJuice is capable of powering the MacBook for up to 45 hours – allowing for long haul flights, extended outdoor shoots, expeditions to remote locations or any situation where electricity is simply not an option. When on the road, there is also the HyperJuice Car Charger which powers the MacBook directly from the automobile cigarette slot.

Users can check the HyperJuice battery level anytime with the built-in 4 level LED battery indicator. HyperJuice battery also comes with a 10W high power USB power port to charge any USB device including the iPad and iPhone separately or simultaneously with the MacBook.

HyperJuice batteries uses the same high-end lithium ion cells that are supplied to the U.S. Military. It is rechargeable up to 1,000 times and comes with a 1 year warranty. With a great attention to detail, HyperJuice batteries’ silver color aluminum housing are color matched to the MacBook. Clean lines, laser engraved logo and all-white accessories complete the Apple look.

The HyperJuice External MacBook Batteries currently retails at www.hyperjuice.com for $169.95 (60-watt-hour battery), $249.95 (100Wh), $349.95 (150Wh) and $449.95 (222Wh).

A working prototype of the HyperJuice Magic Box will be on display at HyperJuice’s Macworld 2011 booth and will be made available in March 2011. Customers can pre-order the HyperJuice Magic Box now at www.hyperjuice.com for $49.95. As part of the pre-order promotion, the HyperJuice Car Charger which allows the MacBook to be recharged in the car will be given free with every purchase of the HyperJuice Magic Box.

Next is a modification kit that allows MacBook users to easily make their own HyperJuice compatible MagSafe charging cables from their existing MacBook power adapters. With these modified cables, MacBooks can be powered and recharged with external batteries from HyperJuice.

The DIY (Do-It-Yourself) modification kit is designed to be easy to use and suitable for users of all technical backgrounds. Everything required for the modification is provided. The entire modification process takes around 10 minutes and does not require special skills, tools, soldering or complex wiring. Essentially 2 connectors (1 male, 1 female) is added between the MacBook Power Adapter cable.

Press Release – HyperMac Extends New MacBook Air Battery Life Up To 38 Hours!

1 Week Left To Get The World’s Only MacBook External Battery Before They Are Gone For Good on November 2, 2010

SUNNYVALE, California -October 25, 2010, HyperMac is the world’s only external battery that powers and recharges all Apple MacBook models (including the newly announced 11″ and 13″ MacBook Air) via an included MagSafe power cable which is extracted from the original MacBook power adapter. However at Apple’s request, Sanho Corporation (parent of HyperMac) will cease the sale of the MagSafe power cables on November 2, 2010 00:00 U.S. Pacific Time. So this is the last chance to grab the HyperMac before they are gone for good.

The newly announced 11″ and 13″ MacBook Air models have internal batteries that are rated to last 5 and 7 hours respectively. Like the rest of the MacBook line, the MacBook Air internal batteries are built-in and non-swappable. While the MacBook Air is clearly designed to be portable, the internal battery design limits that portability to only 5 to 7 hours. HyperMac remains the only portable solution to power and recharge MacBooks on the go, away from the wall mains.

HyperMac external MacBook battery comes in 4 different capacities of 60Wh, 100Wh, 150Wh and 222Wh. Conversely the new 11″ and 13″ MacBook Air built-in battery capacities are rated 35Wh and 50Wh respectively. The HyperMac 222Wh which has 6 times more capacity than the 11″ MacBook Air 5 hour rated battery, adds up to 32 hours additional battery life, extending the overall 11″ MacBook Air battery life up to 37 hours. On the 13″ MacBook Air, the HyperMac 222Wh extends battery life up to 38 hours.

Besides the MacBook Air, HyperMac external MacBook batteries also work with all MacBook, MacBook Pro models as well as the iPad, iPhone 3/3GS/4, iPod and all other USB devices. There is also a HyperMac car charger which provides pure DC recharging of MacBooks in automobiles, something which Apple does not provide.

The HyperMac battery and car charger will be available for sale at www.HyperMac.com until November 2, 2010 for $149.95 (car charger), $199.95 (60-watt-hour battery), $299.95 (100Wh), $399.95 (150Wh) and $499.95 (222Wh).

Press Release – HyperDrive – The World’s First And Only iPad Hard Drive

Carry 750GB of HD video and photo, always accessible to the iPad

BERLIN, GERMANY -┬áSeptember 7, 2010, Sanho Corporation (IFA Hall 15.1, Booth 216), the company behind the HyperMac battery packs for Apple iDevices today unveil the HyperDrive, the only hard drive in the market that can connect directly to the iPad without using a computer. Using the HyperDrive, users can store up to 750GB of high definition video and photos, easily sending them to the iPad for viewing anytime. HyperDrive is also a memory card backup device with 2 card slots to directly backup from 12 different types of cards and a 3.2″ color LCD screen for photo viewing and file management.

Using the Apple Camera Connection Kit, the iPad is able to connect to SD cards and self-powered USB devices. However there is a size limitation of 32GB, making it impossible for larger USB hard drives to connect to the iPad. HyperDrive iPad Hard Drive overcomes this limit with its unique patent pending ability to turn individual file folders into virtual 32GB drives on the fly that is readable by the iPad.

Users can first transfer their entire movie and photo library, organized into folders on the HyperDrive. They can do so by connecting the HyperDrive to their computer via USB or copy directly from memory cards via HyperDrive’s built-in card slots. Once that is done, users will have up to 750GB of media accessible to the iPad anytime.

To transfer media from the HyperDrive to the iPad, users just need to connect the HyperDrive to the iPad via a USB cable and the Apple Camera Connection Kit. Using the HyperDrive’s built-in 3.2″ LCD screen, users can select a folder on the HyperDrive, and the folder contents will appear on the iPad screen, giving users the option to chose which media to download to their iPad.

“HyperDrive iPad Hard Drive lets you carry your entire HD movie and photo library with your iPad,” says Daniel Chin, President of Sanho Corporation. “HyperDrive is as compact as your portable USB hard drive and yet at capacities up to 750GB, can hold more data than your laptop,” he added. “The iPad is the perfect media player but its capacities are limited and it requires a computer and iTunes to transfer media to the iPad,” he continued. “HyperDrive releases the iPad from this restriction and truly turns it into a media consuming device,” he concludes.

Like its predecessors, HyperDrive iPad Hard Drive is also a memory card backup device capable of downloading data from 12 different types of memory cards in 2 of its built-in card slots at speeds up to 40MB/s (or 2GB/minute). The HyperDrive will be useful for photographers and videographers who want to perform backups in the field or simply capture more photos and videos beyond what their memory cards allow.

HyperDrive iPad Hard Drive also functions as a USB external hard drive when connected to the computer. Its 3.2″ QVGA color LCD screen displays JPEG and RAW images. Other advanced features include memory card data recovery, memory card and hard drive speed tests and diagnostics checks.

Features

- Connects to the iPad to transfer photos, movies and other media
- Connect HyperDrive as a USB hard drive to the computer
- Import any data from memory card directly, without a computer
- Browse through RAW or JPEG photos on built-in 3.2″ color LCD screen
