Chug Plug Battery From Lenmar Charges Your Mac On The Go at CES



ChugPlug_LenmarAirplanes, long car rides, inaccessible plugs in hotel rooms… and your battery is at 15%, with hours of time yet to kill. Chris Davis from Healthtech Weekly interviews Jenny Simpson from Lenmar about solving these everyday dilemmas. Chris was roaming the floor at the International CES conference in Las Vegas looking for the latest and greatest in tech and gadgets with the Tech Podcast Network team. Find out how you can extend your MacBook’s battery life with Chris Davis and the Chug Plug.

The Chug Plug is the first of its kind; an external battery pack for your MacBook. It plugs into the brick portion of the laptop power adapter that comes with your computer and adds about four hours of battery life. The best part is that you don’t need any extra cables. You charge it up with the other side of your Mac laptop’s charging cable.

Presently, the Chug Plug is only available for the 13 inch MacBook Pro, as well as all models of MacBook Air; however, the company is working on producing a larger model to cover the 15- and 17-inch models of MacBook Pro.

The Chug Plug will be available in March for about $159.

Belly-Bean Functional Workplace



Belly Bean One of the biggest problem with laptops is that they get too hot to use on a lap. Many answers to this problem aren’t very stylish and look rather dorky. Belly Bean is a stylish solution for this problem. It looks like a cross between a skate board and a surf board. Belly Bean is made of hard-rock maple and on the back is EVA (Ethylene vinyl acetate) foam, which prevents heat transfer. EVA foam is also used in diving and dry suits.

Belly Bean is a functional workspace large enough for a 17 inch laptop with room left over. It is $49.00 and is available through the Belly Bean Web site. So now you can look great and be cool while you continue to work with a lap top on your lap.

Keyboard covers – You need one!



Keyboard covers, why do you need it?

In case you spill food and liquids on your keyboard?  Sure, but that is NOT why you are going to want the best quality keyboard covers on the market from KB Covers.  You want these covers because they give you all the shortcuts for professional programs such as Final Cut Pro, Aperture, After Effects etc.

I own FOUR of them.  I was so impressed that I ended up ordering them the same day I did this interview with the KB Covers team on the floor at CES.  I especially like the cover that shows all the typical Apple iOS shortcuts.  I am buying a stack of them to give to some of my friends who recently bought their first Macbook.  What better way to learn the new operating system while protecting your laptop from accidental Lattés at the same time?

These keyboard covers are made for Apple products, so PC lovers will have to wait and see if a PC line is on the move.

If you are a touch typist (or working on it) you can get a cover that hides the print on your keys, which is a fantastic way to accelerate your typing skills.  I have been using blank keyboards for years because it keeps my typing skills up to code and it makes it easier when you switch between different languages since the print on the keys only match one language.

3 months ago, I bought a silicone keyboard cover in the Apple store and I hated it.  I don’t remember what brand it was but I threw it away after only two days.  It felt icky and it made it difficult to type.  I have been using the covers from KB Covers for two weeks and I love them.  I bought the covers for the Macbook Pro Unibody, which has the added bonus of also fitting perfectly the small wireless keyboard from Apple.

Check them out!  This is one product I can personally vouch for.
