Following the Magic Charger for Apple’s Magic Mouse, Mobbe unveiled earlier today the Magic Bar, a standalone desktop accessory that can charge the Magic Trackpad or Apple’s Bluetooth Keyboard with inductive, wireless technology. All you have to do to charge your trackpad and keyboard with the Magic Bar is swap the batteries with Mobee’s battery pack that only needs contact with the Bar to be charged. If you’re familiar with inductive technology – like the Powermat for iPhone we reviewed on MacStories before – you know that it’s incredibly handy to be able to simply place a device on top of a surface to charge it without cables. The Magic Bar, however, needs to be connected to a USB port on your computer – you can’t go completely cable-free with it.
Pricing of the Magic Bar hasn’t been revealed yet, but pre-orders will start on May 15 with availability by the end of June. You can check out more details on Mobee’s official website.
