This could turn into something cool.
Hyper, the makers of the HyperJuice battery, have put together an Indiegogo fundraiser to raise US$50,000 to create a HyperJuice battery that will effectively charge Apple’s 12-inch MacBook with a USB Type C power adapter interface.
The Magic Box units being worked on will allow conventional battery packs to charge the notebook at 29 watts and will allow you to safely charge the 12-inch MacBook at 12 watts with any USB battery, sending the right current along without risk of damaging the battery over time.
The IndieGoGo campaign has raised over US$13,000 of its US$50,000 goal in one day with 29 days remaining.
Stay tuned for additional details and be sure to check out the campaign’s Indiegogo page for additional details or if you’re interested in contributing.
