Extending the new MacBook battery life cheaply

By Peter Chubb - Apr 14, 2015

The new MacBook is now available to purchase and the early reviews would suggest that Apple has come up with a pretty decent laptop. There are one or two concerns, one of which is only having one USB-C port, and the other is battery life. Apple quotes around ten hours, although during recent reviews many users have been reporting around 7 hours of use, although this does depend on what you will be doing with the all-new MacBook.

Using the USB-C port might be an issue for some people, but to others they see this as a great opportunity because of what it offers. This is because you cannot only transfer date though through it, but also receive power.

This means that it allows you to use a portable battery pack in order to get more life from your new MacBook, and believe it or not, this can be done cheaply as well – once you bought a USB-C port adapter lead that is.

With this in mind there are some very cheap battery packs out there, although the Juice Pack is made for use with these new MacBooks, and so you will be able to almost double its battery life.

There are two HyperJuice battery packs to choose from, the 1.5 and 2, each of which offers different capacities. You will also notice the added benefit of extra USB ports, which will certainly come in handy.

For more details on these battery packs that almost double the new MacBook battery life, head over to Hyper’s website.
