12-inch MacBook - the first laptop that can be charged from the external battery

One of the features of the new Apple MacBook laptop is the availability of port USB Type-C.This standard provides for the use of symmetric connector that allows you to connect any cables to them the end, regardless of the orientation of the connector. At the same time thanks to this connector have the opportunity to charge the notebook from external independent power supply.

USB-C in the new MacBook has replaced all other wired interfaces, including Thunderbolt, USB 3.0 and MagSafe. Solution bold enough, but no less controversial. After all, only one port will be available for peripherals, drives, and other manipulators. Connect on the road, "the stick" or charge the smartphone is now just will not work. But it will be able to use to charge external batteries.
Techcrunch conducted an experiment with charging MacBook to an external power source.As such, made a backup battery Limefuel capacity of 18,000 mAh - twice more than the battery MacBook. Laptop really is charging, but charging rate was quite low. With the lid closed Limefuel joined the MacBook battery by only 5%.
Perhaps this is a feature of this model in the future there will be specialized solutions. In any case, Mac users have the opportunity to increase the autonomy of the laptop in two or three times.
Limefuel - universal battery and contains four standard USB-ports. The battery is used to simultaneously charge multiple gadgets: tablets, smartphones, cameras, handheld players, and more.
