Incase today announced the upcoming launch of a new IconConnected Power Sleeve for the MacBook Pro, which is designed to be an all-in-one protection and power solution for Apple's latest notebook computers.

The IconConnected Power Sleeve combines the protection of the Incase Icon sleeve with a built-in battery that's able to provide additional power to a MacBook Pro right from the case. The Power Sleeve features a built-in 14,000mAh battery with a USB-C port and an included USB-C charging cable.

In addition to being able to charge a MacBook Pro, the Power Sleeve also includes a USB-A port that can be used to charge iPhones, iPads, and other USB devices.

According to Incase, the Power Sleeve is able to provide more than one charge to the MacBook Pro, and multiple charges for devices with smaller batteries like the iPhone and iPad.

"For over 20 years, Incase has created innovative solutions that provide a better experience for Apple users through good design, with a rich heritage in MacBook protection and most recently, with an emphasis on connected solutions," said Paul Okui, Vice President of Product, Incase. "The IconConnectedTM Power Sleeve bridges the Incase connected and protection product ecosystems into one refined, powerful sleeve designed to meet the evolving demands of today's MacBook Pro users."

The Power Sleeve will be available for both 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pro models with USB-C ports, and when it launches in the third quarter of 2018, it will be priced at $199.95.

I don't think 1-2 mm thicker will result in an additional 14,000 mAh capacity and it's not that straightforward as a thicker laptop will mean overall more material and making it heavier, also I think with the new MBPs, what people want is more power as battery life will never be enough the moment you start doing video editing and such.

So I do agree on a slightly thicker MBP, but would rather that extra thickness be dedicated for thermal and GPU rather than slightly larger battery capacity which won't make that much of a difference in real life uses.

On another note, I welcome product like these and expect to see more of such cases as USB-C notebook adoption increases. My only question is, will this be air-travel friendly?

In case of 15" MBP, they couldn't, because it's already 99wh, while airline limit is 100wh. As for 13", it's meant to be small and light.

I wish they STOPPED using wrong measurement units to talk about battery size. mAh don't tell you ANYTHING without the Volt. Actual capacity is measured in Wh. Nothing else.

It's like talking about cars and HP to determine the speed. Well... my huge ass truck has more HP than this little Porsche... so it must be faster right?
