    .....damn. That's not right. Of all the third party accessories in the market, the Hypermac is, by far, the most useful. I've had this for a couple of months (providing extra power to my first-gen MBA) and it's a wonderful product to use. Sayang.....sayang talaga :(

    Maybe HyperMac (or as it will be called as a result of negotiations with Apple, HyperJuice) will continue to provide power solutions as soon as it gets everything settled. It's one of those products that really will be missed.

    With so many broken MacBook ac adapters, it will be easy to make a cable. I guess it will be legal for the company to give instructions on how to make your own cable from discarded ac adapters. The other end could simply be your standard dc jack.

    I ordered another one over the weekend. Hoping it will be processed on or before the cut-off date (Nov 2) :)

    .......no one sells it here. The only ones being sold here are for phones, not laptops. Before I discovered the Hypermac, I wanted to get one from Battery Geek (http://www.batterygeek.net/). It should work the same.

    If its available, I am sure buyers will follow... Just look at the powermat which was recently released here, its one of the most sought after gift during the holidays... besides, why stop with the hypermac when you can sell the whole line of Sanho (HyperDrive, HyperStand, HyperMac Mini).

    I have a Macbook white 13" 2007, the power adapter is the same, the guys in the store are saying that I can buy the latest power adapter because all macbooks have the same battery and power adapter, is this true?

    I received my package last December. According to their customer service, they encountered delays in the manufacturing and shipping due to overwhelming demand as a result of the Nov 2 deadline.

    So this product (with the cables) is still being sold & supported? Hope a local distributor prices these at the exchange rate value...

    So there's no way to get the cable for HyperMac? What would be the alternative solution?

    Anyone who has experienced the hissing sound in the headphone when the HyperMac battery is plugged into your laptop? I have read an article in the Net explaining this issue:

    Reducing Headphone Noise from the HyperMac Battery

    As a temporary solution, it is recommending this product. Would anybody know if this is available in our local shops?

    Ferrite toroid

    How does warranty/repair/service work here in the Philippines when the HyperMac or Hyperjuice (its new name) malfunctions?

    I asked EarthTech Products about their solar charger for the Mac, they said they only serviced in the United States (so that means sorry for us here).

    I had this 60W MagSafe which died on me for no reason at all, just stopped charging my MacBook; and then the frustrating experience with my "brand new" 85W that came with MBP purchase (sure looks like a refurbished one straight from Foxconn or kung saan man)... So I was thinking what is my best option then:

    -HyperJuice
    -QuickerTek Solar Juicz
    -or others?

    Rather than starting a new thread, I'll just ask here. Is Hyperjuice being sold anywhere locally?
