Solar Power for Apple MacBook Air

Solar Power for Apple MacBook Air

Picture 1.pngQuickerTek, the leader in wireless Apple products, announces the Apple Juicz – a new way to power the Apple MacBook Air using solar power. Three models are priced from $500 to $1,000 USD and fold to a convenient 10.5 size and come with a cool Element messenger bag. These solar panels charge the MacBook Air while in use.

The Apple Juicz Solar Charger requires the sun to charge your MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. The flexible thin-film solar cells will charge the MacBook Air in five hours. Since the MacBook Air has a non-removeable battery, alternative power options are welcomed by the Mac community. Especially “green” options.

There are three different solar panels:
* 55 watt model $1000.00 – recharges the MBA in 5 hours, unfolds to 60 x 42 inches
* 27 watt model $600.00 – recharges the MBA in 8 hours, unfolds to 41.5 x 30.5 inches
* 18 watt model $500.00 – recharges the MBA in 14 hours, unfolds to 30.5 x 30 inches

All models require an upgraded MagSafe power adapter. QuickerTek can modify the customer’s adapter for $25.00 or purchase a modified MagSafe power adapter for $100.00. Either way, the adapter retains the original functionality with the added advantage of being able to hook into the Apple Juicz line. Each unit comes with a cool Element messenger bag which holds everything nicely.

Like most QuickerTek products, the Apple Juicz Solar Charger is backed with a one-year warranty on parts and labor.
