Apple today has released refreshed products to their iMac, Mac Pro, and Apple Cinema Display line-ups. They also released a new multi-touch “Magic Trackpad”. One other product that hasn’t received as much attention is Apple’s new AA battery charger shown in the image above.
There have been many users complaining about the battery life of Apple’s Magic Mouse, and other Bluetooth devices, and I suppose this is one solution to the issue. The $30 Apple Battery Charger comes with 6 high-performance AA NiMH batteriesthat will apparently last 10 years and is said by Apple to have the lowest vampire draw of any other similar device on the market. This essentially means the product doesn’t use excess power when inactive but still plugged in.
The Apple Battery Charger is available now for $29 and ships in 2-4 days. You should be able to grab one at your local Apple Store by the end of the week.
