This Macbook Air charger

Hey,

I might be buying an 11” MBA very soon to take on a long trip with me and have been looking for portable power options. This guy appears to be selling what looks like one of the $10 generic 4×18650 power boxes off ebay (5v 2A) to charge a MBA??

What about this option? http://au.suntekstore.com/goods-14004058-Adjustable+Output+Voltage+Mobil...

I am loving those boxes to charge my smartphones and would love to charge a laptop or netbook with it aswell. Thanks!

I’ve ordered a similar one from Ebay UK.

Cheers bro,

Are you able to charge your netbook or laptop with this?
Looks the same and cheaper than the one I got from suntekstore even after the coupon.
Just a note: The white HImax will not fit in this and even Trustfire flames are a tight fit. Sanyos fit nicely. Think this has protection like the others.

EDIT: spelling and grammar.. 3am here lol

Hi,Pantaloonie.have you got the charger? Really wonder if it can be use for charging laptop at this price. I have been using a similar box with 5v,1a output.work fine with mobile and iPad.

Not got it yet, it was ordered only two days ago.

Doesn’t the Air require 15-16 Volts or thereabouts? They don’t make a car charger due to this, so I was told when I tried to buy one.

My Air has its own little power block, its not a generic 5V USB one.

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
