I want to thank FastMac for hooking me up with an extra MacBook battery to use today since my other one crapped out during the keynote. This one is actually calibrated and I know my MB won’t go into sleep mode at the 30 minute mark. Thanks, FastMac. You saved my ass.
Announced today from FastMac is the iV iPhone external battery case. What does it do? It’s a mashup of case, extra battery and flashlight! The neat thing about this gadget is that it will still slide into an Apple dock with the case and it charges both the iPhone and extra battery. It adds 24 hours of talk time and 21 hours of video playback with 72 hours of audio playback and 720 hours of standby. Sweet, right? Of course it is. I know I use my phone to find my way around in the dark and now the iV makes it a bit easier with a built-in LED flashlight located in the rear. It retails for $79.95, but if you’re at Macworld then you pick one up for only $69.
