Mophie has announced an expansion of its product offerings with a juice pack air sleeve for the iPhone 5, giving owners of Apple's latest handset an extended battery option. With this device, users who are often on the go and find themselves in situations where recharging their phone is not possible or inconvenient have a way to keep the device going a few hours longer.
Mophie is known for their popular line of Juice Pack battery pack cases that give users an extra boost of juice when their iPhones get low on battery. For the first time, though, the cases are coming to the iPhone 5. Mophie announced the Juice Pack Helium today, which will give iPhone 5 owners 80% more battery life.
Does your iphone drain battery like water in a sink? I like my iphone but without an extra juice pack, I might well turn the “Push” off or disabling the 3G connectivity, it barely lasts a few hours. We know an external battery works wonder but some of them can be an extra burden on the weight and size. For that reasons, Mophie has its upcoming Iphone’s external battery machined in the thinnest profile possible; the All New “juice pack air” is not only world’s thinnest, it’s also light weight and is multifunctional as a protective case.
Apple retail stores have apparently suspended sales of slide-on iPhone 4 cases over suspicions that they can scratch or even crack the glass back-panel of the fourth-generation iOS smartphone. According to Cult of Mac's sources in the case industry - who are rather dramatically referring to the issue as "Glassgate" - Apple is now testing all iPhone 4 cases individually to see if they damage the handset; the delay in Apple Store sales could see manufacturers like Mophie and Kensington experiencing significantly underwhelming holiday sales, despite having ordered significant amounts of stock.
Mophie makes all sorts of cool accessories for the iPhone from regular cases to the Juicepack line of cases that add battery life to your iPhone. Back in late December 2009, we heard that Mophie was working on a new credit card reader for the iPhone but we had few details on the device.
I have owned a couple iPhones now and for each model I have owned I have a Mophie Juice Pack to keep its battery running longer. My favorite is the thin Juice Pack Air for my 3GS iPhone. Mophie is set to unveil another hardware accessory for the iPhone that looks a lot like the Juice Pack Air that is actually a credit card reader.
Considering how hungry today's gadgets are for power, it's no surprise most geeks break out into a cold sweat when they're away from a mains socket. V-Dimension aims to change all that, with their Helius solar-powered backpack: they claim its integrated battery is good enough to keep even the most avid iPhone 3G user juiced-up.
