You may recall that a few months back, Apple brought its legal guns to bear on Sanho: a company much loved by road warriors for their excellent line up of MacBook charging solutions. Apple's beef with the company was that Sanho's Hypermac external batteries utilized Apple's patented MagSafe technology without their permission. As Sanho also offers a number of other Apple-sanctioned peripherals that they feared they could lose the license to manufacture, the company immiediately bowed to Cupertino's order to cease and desist the production of Hypermac external batteries featuring the MagSafe connector that made the product so useful. Fortunately, it appears that Sanho has come through with a solution.
Sure, the unibody MacBooks have longer-lasting batteries. But for many,
those improvements came at too high a cost--no swapping of spare
batteries can be a lethal limitation. But for the folks at Sanho, it
presented a dreamy business opportunity, and their line of batteries
delivers the plug-and-go power that many of you crave, though you’ll
pay a premium for it.
