I have a MAC Pro with CD drive which I never use. Does MAC sell an extra battery which I could put in the CD drive slot?
Hi,

No - there is no such accessory, but there is a portable battery that you can connect to the power port. It will last double what your internal battery does.

Here it is:

Thank you. An external portable battery is a good idea but takes up space. It is unfortunate no one has built a battery to use up the CD drive slot on a MAC. In Windows PCs like Lenovo/Dell - that is common but I will never go back to Windows PC as long as I can avoid them.

I agree - but that's how apple does thing. They consider it "elegant".
