TiPb Give-Away: HyperMac Nano Battery for iPhone/iPod

HyperMac Nano 1

The HyperMac Nano by HyperShop is an external battery for iPhone and iPod with a built in charging cable. It's highly portable, looks and feels great, and is made of 1800mAh lithium ion which provides up 1.5 times full recharge of the iPhone.

To learn more and get details about the give-away, follow us after the break!

The design of the HyperMac Nano is very slick and reminds me a cigarette lighter. With dimensions of only 3.4" x 1.5" x 0.55", the battery will fit easily into your jeans or jacket pocket for easy portability. The rounded edges of the aluminum casing also feels nicely in your hands. The HyperMac comes in 9 stylish colors; yes, the same 9 colors available for the iPod nano.

What makes the HyperMac Nano unique to other external batteries is the built in charging cable. Underneath the cap you will find both male and female 30-pin sockets plugged into each other. The cap also conveniently snaps magnetically to the bottom of the battery so you don't lose it when the battery is in use.

To charge the HyperMac Nano, just plug your iPhone cable into the female socket; and to charge your iPhone, plug the male socket into your iPhone. When the HyperMac Nano is plugged into a power source, a blue light will indicate that it is charging and a green light will mean the charge is complete.

When on the go, I found the HyperMac Nano more convenient than an extended battery because it did not increase the length of my iPhone. I could easily fit them together in my jacket pocket without fear of them falling out because the short cable is long enough to rest the battery behind my iPhone and so nothing sticks out of my pocket.

In conclusion, I found the HyperMac Nano to be a great and stylish way to give my iPhone some extra juice.

Now for the give-away! Just leave a comment below and let us know why HyperMac Nano will be a great addition to you life. We'll pick one of you randomly and send you a silver HyperMac Nano. (The You need a valid email address and a US shipping address to enter. The contest starts now and ends Sunday, March 14, 2010.

Kristine says:

Man oh man... with my constant battery issues, this would be AWESOME to win!!

Rich says:

This would come in very handy. I use my iPhone more than my PC and charge it at least twice a day, which isn't always convenient when on the road.

victor says:

i use my iphone so much that even my mophie juice pack would drain and now it's busted and desperately need a new charger!

Marc in Seattle says:

nothing says suck like when your turns off for lack of juice.

nivram says:

im going away on a road trip and really didn't want to buy a car charger

Ray says:

I would use the batter to help me on outings (biking and walking) where I use GPS nav apps that drain my battery fairly quickly.

Chad says:

This would be great for my surf trips and trail riding adventures as I often run very low on battery after using the gps and other battery draining features to get where i'm going and letting my partners know where to go. Throw this in the dry pack and head out!

Kevin says:

I would leave in in the convertible for those long days at the track this summer.

Brent says:

I like to literally run errands, and the internal battery cannot keep up with a day of podcast listening & Runkeeper GPS logging. Would be great on long camping trips too.

Sketso says:

I could always use more battery life without having the bulk of most options on the market. Sounds like a great product!

Matt says:

More power, more fun!!!

gooner21 says:

I always need a "top up" of power because im always using my iPhone :-)

David says:

Pretty sweet! That would work great for me when I'm backpacking. Sometimes its nice to view a movie before going to sleep; but even in Airplane mode that leaves the iPhone pretty weak the next day.

mattoaks says:

Would love to use it when camping or backpacking away from electricity!!

Paul says:

If I win then i'll have a hypermac for all sizes! Perfect!

pratik mistry says:

my customer will always able to reach me ..
i could play a game lot or could hear a music lot without fear to loss a battery.......
