Sanho has consolidated two accessories for the iPad into one with the HyperMac stand and charging station.

Ready to prop up an iPad in either landscape or portrait positions, there are two rubberized slots that holds the tablet at either 18 or 45-degree angles, depending on what you're doing. (For example, if you want to type on the touchscreen or just watch a movie.)

The shining feature is really the 40-watt-hour rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which can extend the iPad's battery life by a whopping 16 hours. (You charge the stand via mini-USB.) Users can monitor how far the battery has charged up by the 5-stage lighted LED indicator.

The HyperMac Stand is available now for $129.95. Pricey for an accessory, but at least it sounds useful.

  • WOW!!!!!! 26 Hours?!?!?!

    That's great, but who in the world is going to need 26 hours of battery time from an iPad? I go days without charging mine, and even on standby I can go over a week with intermittent use before I have to finally plug it into a wall...either way, 26 hours is an amazing extension for this product and the station is in a small enough format to take on the go.
