The lower-end HyperMac Micro sports a 3600mAh capacity and delivers up to five hours of extra power. Meanwhile, the 7200mAh HyperMac Mini bumps the battery life up to ten hours.

Then there's obviously the most important detail to decide: color. There's an assortment of 10 shades to choose from: silver, pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black and a "darker iPad black."

As these Lithium-ion batteries deliver energy via USB, they can technically charge almost any device USB-powered device.

The HyperMac Micro and Mini batteries are available now for $89.95 and $119.95 respectively. But if you act soon, there's a $20 discount for a limited time.
