Our brand new 12″ MacBook just arrived and it’s thin, light and… dented? Right out of the box we noticed two large dents on the bottom case!
We make tizi accessories & gadgets for iPhone, iPad and Mac (including chargers and flip-cables), so we asked our tizi packaging and product engineering team to investigate with their years of experience in product-packaging design.
Our tizi engineers discovered that the European power supply must have been jostled during transport, causing the rear edge of the power adapter and the front end of the plug to push up into the underside of the MacBook.
This won’t be an issue in the US, where the power adapter has prongs that fold up into the power brick – which is probably why the engineers in Cupertino didn’t catch it.
When you line up the power supply with the dents, you can see they line up perfectly. The little instruction booklet included with the MacBook also has marking on it, confirming the theory:
We’ve contacted Apple about the issue and they’ll replace our Macbook — so if you’ve ordered a new 12″ MacBook in Europe, be sure to check the underside of your new machine for dents once you get it!

Who doesn’t love their smartphone, right? This love-affair is a world-wide phenomenon. More than one billion people around the globe are swiping and typing as you read this. The performance values of modern devices are shooting up to new heights: Whether Apple’s A8 chips or the newest Snapdragons – Apple, Samsung, Nvidia and Qualcomm are constantly pushing the limits of performance for their mobile processors so that we can enjoy HD gaming, super high speed internet, and slow motion videos while out and about.
Find ways to keep your batteries fit
But the problem with this constant boost of performance is that batteries are being pushed to their limits. Despite the fact that the leading smartphones have actually doubled their battery capacity in the last couple of years (the iPhone 6 Plus now uses a 2.915 mAh battery), most smartphones batteries don’t even last a day. This is truly cumbersome for businesses or anyone else who counts on their devices functioning throughout the day. The good news is, that with the right amount of care, it’s possible to extend the life of your batteries.
We’ll get you up-to-date with the leading myths revolving around batteries, since things have greatly changed over the years. Most batteries used in mobile devices today are either lithium-ion (Li-Ion) or Lithium-Polymer (Li-Po).
The best time to charge
Here is the most gentle way to re-charge: don’t let your battery get under 30% before plugging it in. You don’t have to wait till the battery is almost empty, it’s safe to start re-charging from 70% on.
The life of battery is longer than you think
More SPEED — Charge your batteries faster
Of course there’s no risk involved with charging your iPhone with the Apple charging device. However, there are ways to charge your devices faster and more gently. The new iPhone 6 comes with a 5 watt charging cable which “only” delivers up to 1A power despite the fact that the new iPhone 6, just like the ipad, can be charged with higher power, up to 2.1 A. With their high power ports, specialized charging devices, such as the tizi Tankstelle, tizi Tankstation, and tizi Turbolader, can charge your iPhone double as fast as the included Apple charging cable.
Charge every device gently and with the right level of power
