International travel comes with a lot of headaches. Charged devices are one of the most important things for any traveler, so going abroad means bringing along outlet adapters of all shapes and sizes. Not if you have this single, super useful charging hub.
Despite the MacBook’s svelte design, their batteries last a long time because Apple put a lot of thought into how the hardware and software work together. Still, if you find yourself running out of juice, some simple changes can help you extend your MacBook battery life.
Apple designs its laptops to maximize user productivity and minimize extra work, but following these simple tips will boost MacBook battery life considerably.
