Check out the latest news from mophie and Twelve South for the new MacBooks

Accessories have become quite common for our gadgets more compact, as they may need some extra options as they are portable to meet all our needs wherever we go.

However, larger devices also need a little attention and that is what the mophie and the Twelve south did with their last releases.

Mophie USB-C XXL Battery

Already available for pre-sale, mophie today announced the USB-C XXL powerstation, which was created primarily for the newest models of MacBooks and MacBooks Pro.

With a 19,500mAh battery, the accessory is promised to provide an extra 14 hours of battery life (“more than a full charge”) to a MacBook. Your connections are a USB-C, which helps you charge your device at full speed, and a 5V / 2.4A USB-A; thus, it will be possible for users to charge both their computers and other gadgets like an iPhone or iPad.

Like others in mophie products, this also includes priority loading; That is, when it is plugged in, its battery will first emit power to a connected device and then recharge.

Another well thought out aspect is the way it was covered in a soft fabric so that there are no scratching issues when being carried in backpacks or the like.

The USB-C XXL powerstation is available for sale by $ 150 on the mophie website and at Apple's online and physical stores.

Twelve South also announced today a really cool new feature: “volume 2” of its classic MacBook cover BookBook, now suitable for new models.

If you have never seen this line, it purposely resembles those old, hardcover books that usually get dust on a bookshelf by the door.

In addition to looking great, especially for us Brazilians for their MacBook, the BookBook is made of leather and each unit sewn by hand, which makes every piece unique.

This "volume" of the case is 42% thinner to house the newer 12, 13 and 15 inch MacBooks (Pro). A new feature in this new model is that, inside the cover, there is still a compartment where you can place up to 20 pages of documents (or whatever you want).
