I had a similar thing, my order said 3-4 weeks and then in the Apple Store app new orders were showing 1-2 weeks, so I cancelled and re-ordered, and the watch turned up 3 days later.
Is that really worth it? I think I charge the batteries in my keyboard about once every 3 months, and that's with fairly heavy daily use. The mouse is probably every 3 weeks, an inductive power supply for that would be more sensible since it could be in a mouse mat and wouldn't require that dock thing.
Total crap. Snake oil to use the American term.That'd be fine if everything shut off at 1.35v. It doesn't. In fact I don't know anything that does. The Vbe (voltage drop, or sort of voltage "required") of a silicon transistor is about 0.7v, anything lower than that and you can't actually get power through the transistor anyway. So their claim of "down to 0.6v" is tripe to begin with.Generally devices will run down to about 0.9v, and it's really then about lack of current...
Oh, the US AND Australia. That's most everywhere covered, nothing to complain about at all. The USA is the whole world, after all.
C'mon Apple, here in the UK and in Europe generally we've had chip and pin readers for 10 years, but still no sign of Apple Pay (nor iTunes radio, wtf is up with that?).
Wait what? Pent up energy? It's not stored in the panels, only generated. And even then, it's only around 70v, which isn't massively dangerous.
Since mid-April the Euro has strengthened vs the Dollar, and in fact it's roughly on a par with its value in January. So this is a bit unsubstantiated. The value of Sterling has strengthened slightly since January vs the Euro, so hopefully Apple won't decide to bump UK prices too.
If they did go wireless charging, it'd be pretty inefficient due to the power requirements of the MBP (60w for the 13") and the aluminium base would have to be replaced with something non-conductive. Plus IMO it'd be pretty unwieldy, since if you were using the Mac as a laptop you'd have to have a charging base underneath it, instead of just a plug.
