BearExtender announced today the availability of two new Wi-Fi products for Macs. BearExtender 1200 is a high-powered 1200mW receiver for the long-range 2.4 GHz 802.11n band, available for pre-order today (ships August 15). It features up to 70% more power than the original BearExtender, an upgraded high gain 5 dBi antenna and a new high sensitivity receiver. BearExtender Turbo is a high-speed 802.11ac receiver shipping in October. It features a maximum throughput speed of 867 Mbps that is up to three times faster than modern 802.11n equipped Macs. It also features USB 3.0 connectivity, OS X Mavericks compatibility and dual upgradable antennas.
“After the success of our first BearExtender (2009) and BearExtender Mini (2012), both which received 4 out of 5 Mice ratings from MacWorld Magazine, we knew we had to deliver even more range for BearExtender 1200,” said Roland Saekow, head of product development at BearExtender.
