The Lenmar ChugPlug will add up to 4 hours of battery life to your MacBook Pro/Air for $15 shipped (Orig. $40)

Amazon is once again offering the Lenmar ChugPlug External Battery Pack for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro for $19.99, but we happened to have spotted it on eBay for just $14.99 shipped. This deal comes courtesy of trusted seller yapper_wireless (99.1% Positive feedback). That’s $15 below the regular listing, $5 under our previous mention and matching the lowest total we have tracked.

Perfect for adding an extra boost (up to 4 hours) to your MacBook Pro/Air and it only takes about 2 hours to charge the ChugPlug completely. This is only for the 13 and 15-inch Airs, as well as the 13-inch Pro, not the 15-inch models. It ships with a one year warranty and faired quite well in our review. While ratings are split, nearly 50% of customers left 4 or 5 stars.

At 30,000mAh, there is enough power here to charge an iPhone eleven times over. It has four USB ports, which have a total charging output of 6A, meaning you can easily top up a phone and a tablet at the same time at full speed. Given this functionality, the ToughJuice is also remarkably compact, at under four inches wide.

  • Quad USB ports with total 6A output to charge four devices simultaneously at top speed
  • Enormous 30,000mAh capacity
  • Double layer anti-shock softshell, and hard plastic material to disperse extreme shocks
