Apple store refreshed. Magic trackpad & Battery charger added


Apple refreshed its online Apple store yesterday and added two new cool products – The Magic Trackpad & AA  battery charger.

Magic Trackpad


At $69, you can get this cool looking magic trackpad and add multi touch to any of your Mac. It works over Bluetooth wireless technology similar to the Apple wireless keyboard and supports multiple multi touch gestures. It’s made with smooth, wear-resistant glass that feels great to the touch. And it’s nearly 80 percent larger than the built-in trackpad on the MacBook Pro, giving you plenty of room to perform gestures. Because the entire surface of Magic Trackpad is a button, you can click on objects just as you would using a traditional mouse. And Magic Trackpad sits at the same height and angle as the Apple Wireless Keyboard, so you can go from trackpad to keyboard in one seamless motion.

Magic Trackpad maintains a reliable and secure connection up to 33 feet away from your Mac. It comes with two non-rechargeable AA batteries.

Battery Charger


As they now have Apple wireless keyboard and the magic trackpad which run on AA batteries, Apple decided to make and sell its own battery charger. Its compact, lightweight and a great value for money as it comes bundled with 6 AA rechargeable NiMH batteries at $29!

The batteries have a life span of 10 years. Apparently, the charger has one of the lowest standby — or "vampire draw" — of similar chargers on the market. That’s the energy that most chargers continue to draw even after their batteries are done charging. Unlike other chargers, the Apple Battery Charger senses when a battery charge cycle is complete and automatically reduces the amount of power it uses to 30 milliwatts — more than 10 times better than the industry average.
