I turned my iPad Pro into a veritable MacBook with this $150 Bluetooth keyboard — here's what using it was like

  • Its keys are the same shape and size as the ones on Apple's last-generation MacBook Pro, or current MacBook Air, and a dedicated row of function keys make adjusting the iPad's volume and screen brightness a quick tap away.
  • Slide the iPad Pro into the hinges, and what you end up with is something that looks shockingly similar to a current-generation MacBook, although one that's actually a little heavier and thicker (when closed) than Apple's thinnest laptop.
  • In fact, after testing it out, I actually prefer the feel of Brydge's keys to the ones on the Apple keyboard I use for work, which now feel a little loose by comparison.
  • It is 1.2lb heavier to use this keyboard instead of Apple's Smart Keyboard, but the experience of typing on Brydge's keyboard more than makes up for the additional weight.

HyperJuice is the ‘world’s most powerful USB-C battery pack’

  • In the battle for battery virility, Hyper just launched HyperJuice.
  • The company says it’s “the world’s most powerful USB-C battery pack” and the first to support the 100W USB-C Power Delivery 3.0 Profile.
  • If you own a 100W USB-C charger, then you can charge the HyperJuice in about an hour.
  • Whatever you use, you’ll have to supply it yourself since Hyper doesn’t include a charger in the box.
  • According to a study run by Kickstarter in 2015, roughly 1 in 10 “successful” products that reach their funding goals fail to actually deliver rewards.
  • Hyper recently demonstrated a prototype battery charging a 15-inch MacBook Pro at 100W and a 13-inch MacBook Pro at 60W while simultaneously charging an iPhone X at 18W.
  • Hyper is using crowdfunding to gauge interest in its latest product, as it has multiple times in the past to successfully raise millions.
