Mophie hops on the Apple Watch train with watch dock

When smartphone users hear the name "mophie", they immediately think of battery cases and charging accessories for smartphones. With the arrival of the Apple Watch, however, it might be high time to change that perception. Sure, mophie isn't making a case for the smartwatch, unlike this rather odd accessory, but it's still probably the closest you'll get to the intersection of mophie and Apple Watch. As the name says, the mophie watch dock is simply that, a charging dock, or rather stand, for your smartwatch, just done in style.

Beyond batteries: How Mophie plans to tame storage

Beyond batteries: How Mophie plans to tame storage

Mophie may have its roots in providing snug-fitting extra power for the iPhone, but the future is all about the next big headache in mobile: storage space. Sure, running out of juice by mid-afternoon is an annoyance on your smartphone, but, Mophie points out, running out of memory is even more stressful. It might not happen so often, but with memory card slots getting rarer, having to face deleting your photos, music, and videos is a lot worse than needing to squat by an outlet. Enter the new Mophie Space Pack line and the companion Space app; I caught up with the Mophie team to find out more.

Mophie Spacestation adds power & storage to iPhone 6, iPad mini

Mophie has already made a business out of giving the iPhone more battery life than Apple put inside, and now it's looking to do the same with storage. The new Mophie Spacestation range updates last year's iPhone 5/5s models, combining both an external battery and up to 128GB of space for photos, music, and videos, either packaged into an external enclosure or - more interestingly - built into a Space Pack case for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPad mini.

Super Bowl 2015: this year’s best tech-related commercials

Super Bowl 2015: this year’s best tech-related commercials

The time has arrived. The 2015 Super Bowl. It's that one day of the year where we throw parties with tons of food, focus on sitting on the couch in front of a large TV, and spend the afternoon watching a collection of the world's the most expensive commercials, all with the occasional break to show a sports game. But we already know which commercial will be the winner, don't we? Just like last year, it will be the emotional one with a puppy that doesn't really have a connection to the cheap beer it's trying to sell.

Hands-on with Mophie’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Juice Packs

When it comes to smartphone accessories, cases and battery packs probably rank right up there at the top, probably next to earphones. Of course, combining the two is, in many cases, a very good deal. And when it comes to such battery cases, there is probably no other more trusted name than Mophie. Here at CES 2015, the battery case maker unsurprisingly revealed not two but three new products designed for the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and we get to take a hands-on of these deceptively large packs.

Mophie wants to give your phone 8 days more battery

Mophie may be best known for strapping batteries to iPhones and other smartphones in the form of snap-on cases, but the company has a new range of even bigger power-packs, the new Powerstation Plus line-up. External batteries, rather than integrated ones - which means no need to buy a new model if you upgrade to a different phone, something which can get pretty expensive if you've been following Apple from iPhone 4 form-factor, to iPhone 5, and then most recently to iPhone 6 or 6 Plus - each has a built-in cable with either a microUSB or a Lightning plug on the end to suit your various devices.

Mophie Juice Pack for HTC One Review

The nightly recharge is a fact of life with most modern smartphones, and the HTC One is no different, but what if you could double your runtime and protect your expensive new toy in the process? That's what Mophie promises from the Juice Pack for the HTC One, a combination external battery and hard case that, when wrapped around your phone, should let even the most ambitious power-user escape the tyranny of the charger.

Mophie Juice Pack for HTC One offers to double your Zoe-time

Mophie may be best known for its Juice packs for the iPhone, but the company has made one of its rare Android detours with a battery case for the HTC One.
