Online PR News – 16-March-2010 – – Tustin, California—Tekkeon announces myPower™ ALL Plus MP3700, the company’s advanced external laptop battery with automatic voltage detection, which provides several hours of extra runtime on a laptop and a host of mobile devices. This new 50 Watt-hour lithium polymer battery connects to the power jack to double the life of a laptop battery, and can simultaneously charge other small portable devices through a builtin USB port. And, myPower ALL Plus is modular, so a second extended battery can be added to provide up to seven hours of runtime on a laptop.

"The ideal solution for business users, myPower ALL Plus MP3700 automatically sets the required voltage to power and charge most laptop computers on the go," says Jerry Yang, president of Tekkeon, Inc. "In addition to significantly extending the runtime on a laptop?providing an additional three and a half hours (seven with the extended battery)?this lightweight battery will power and charge the portable devices business users rely on most, including smartphones for up to 40 hours of talk time."

Tekkeon’s MP3700 will power virtually all laptops for which an adapter is available, and will charge most laptops that draw up to 90W output power from the device power adapter. An optional extended battery, model MP3450- 10, can be added to myPower ALL Plus to double the additional runtime on the connected laptop. Used alone, or with the extended battery, myPower ALL Plus significantly increases the runtime of laptops and other devices:
