Battery will continue to be sold without adapters
HyperMac has announced that it will cease selling its external battery supply unit with MagSafe adapters. According to Sanho, the parent company of HyperMac, the move is in direct response to the lawsuit brought against it by Apple. In its open letter, notably bereft of references to the MagSafe trademark, HyperMac states that 'As part of our ongoing comprehensive negotiations with Apple regarding a wide array of technologies and issues, we have decided to cease the sale of Macbook charging cables and car charger on November 2, 2010.'
HyperMac states that they will continue to sell the batteries without the MagSafe adapters for Macbooks and Apple 30 pin cables, beyond the November 2 deadline. The battery will be good for charging iPads and iPhones with a user supplied cable, but as there is no alternative for the HyperMac's unauthorized MagSafe adapter, Macbook users will find little use for the device.
