This post is a Work In Progress Review for the HyperShop’s HyperJuice (formerly HyperMac) 60Wh external battery for the MacBook, iPad, iPhone, and USB devices. The blog post will be updated as I gain real world experiences using this external battery.

Disclaimer: Before I start this review, I would like to state that I am not in any way associated with HyperShop. I gain no financial benefits from giving this honest product review. I will not be doing an “unboxing” experience here so you will probably want to check YouTube for unboxing videos.

Models: The HyperJuice is available in four models: 60Wh, 100Wh, 150Wh, and 222Wh, providing 19.5 hours, 25.8 hours, 33.6 hours , and 45 hours of battery life for 2010 Apple MacBook Pro 13″, respectively. (Stats were taken from the manufacturer’s website). The unit I bought is the 60Wh model, as I need it for an upcoming assignment.

Size & Dimension: The unit I have is the 60Wh model. It weights in at 0.36kg and has a dimension of 12.5cm x 9.6cm x 2.1 cm. The external battery is very light to hold in one hand, it is made of rigid aluminum casing and it certainly will not be easily damaged (unless you drop it from a high ground).

Package Content: HyperJuice battery, AC power supply100-240V for charging HyperJuice, 12-15V DC airline adaptor for connecting to Apple MagSafe Airline adaptor.

Charge Time: Approximately 3 hours for a full charge.

Usage Time: Approximately 3-4 hours under heavy load. This was tested on a MacBook Pro 13″ under heavy workload (photo post processing).

Pro:

  • Provides hours of battery life for Apple MacBook  when wall power is unavailable. Example, watching DVD on the MacBook Pro on the plane.
  • Provides power for Apple MacBook, and also recharges USB devices.
  • Modern industrial design

Con:

  • Expensive – It requires Apple MagSafe Airline adaptor, and it isn’t cheap at $69.00 AUD.

If you have any questions on this product please do not hesitate to write in the comment below. I will reply to you ASAP.

[UPDATE 19th April 2011]

I have been using the HyperJuice for an external battery for my HTC Desire (Android) phone while driving in the car. The phone’s battery deplete quickly on its own with Google Navigation app running, this (HyperJuice) has been a lifesaver!

Thanks for taking the time to write a review.

Does the hyperjuice charge the Macbook from the battery connected with the airline adapter?

Hi Anthony,

The model I have (60W) just have enough Watts to power a 13″ Macbook Pro (2010 model). As far as I know, the higher models are able to recharge Macbook battery.
