As part of its negotiations with Apple, Sanho abandons the HyperMac name for its batteries

Today is the last day of sales for HyperMac batteries with MagSafe connectors, but apparently Sanho remains under pressure from Apple's legal department. The batteries of the Asian manufacturer will have to change their name, as part of the licensing agreements established with Ma, changing to being called “HyperJuice”.

HyperMac Micro

This change involves the unauthorized use of the “Mac” brand, of course, but without a MagSafe to connect Sanho's external batteries to one of Apple's notebooks, it wouldn't even make sense to keep that name. Gadgets that use USB ports to recharge (iPads, iPhones, iPods), however, will remain fully compatible.

I imagine that it is a good idea for Sanho to start promoting a more “agnostic” image of the accessories, emphasizing other brands and types of products. After all, there is a world of Android gadgets that need power on-the-go.

R.I.P. HyperMac, long live HyperJuice!
