  • HyperJuice Stand and HyperDrive HDD for Hyper-iPad

    MMi Live @ MacWorld

    HyperJuice at MacWorld has the largest booth at the show and theyíre showing off their latest iPad accessories. The first one is called HyperJuice Stand and no itís not a late night infomercial for a juicer, itís an iPad stand with a battery. The second item is the HyperDrive, a hard drive for the iPad. Both are available now.

    The HyperJuice Stand ($129.95) is an iPad stand that can power your device while you use it. It features a 40Wh (11,000mAh) battery that can extend an iPad by 16 hours or recharge an iPhone up to 9x. The device has a 10W USB port to charge the iPad, so a cable is required. The advantage of this is that you can charge just about any USB powered device with it as well. Because the stand doesnít require you to dock your iPad with itís 30-pin connector, it works perfectly well with an iPad in a protective case.

    The HyperDrive Hard Drive for the iPad is the only drive that can connect directly to an iPad and also be used as a regular hard drive as well. You can transfer 1 GB of data to the iPad in about a minute. The HyperDrive also features a memory card slot that accepts most major card types except Sonyís memory stick. You can backup a 2 GB memory card in about a minute. It also has a 3.2-inch QVGA (320x240 pixel) LCD screen to preview saved images. The HyperDrive is available in a variety of capacities. The 2600mAh battery can backup 250 GB of data on a single charge.

    HyperJuice is committed to keeping your devices going no matter where you head off to in the world. I canít wait to see what the Hyperize next.

      That's not entirely accurate. According to the HyperDrive spec page, it supports all MemorySticks.

      Not really. You can get the HyperDrive case for $250 and a WD 750GB HDD for $95. That's around half the cost of buying the 750GB version of the HyperDrive.

      Why HyperDrive charges $350 for a 2.5" 750GB HDD is beyond reasonable understanding.

      How in the world is a external hard drive for the iPad helpful when you have no file browser.
