Have you ever run out of batteries on your iPhone? Maybe I should ask who hasn’t, because almost everyone I know runs out of batteries for their iPhone at some point. It has happened to me on occasion, and I’ve had to come home to recharge or find some laptop to leech off power, before heading back out again. Mophie Juice Packs are a way of countering this problem.
The new Mophie Juice Pack Air is cheaper that its predecessor, but it’s supposed to be lighter and more convenient. I always hate when battery cases make my iPhone look way bulkier that it originally was, so it’s nice to see this one adds a minimum of bulk. The Juice Pack Air is about 10% thinner and 5% lighter than the previous generation, while providing 25% more power at 1500mAh.
The case is supposed to “virtually double” your iPhone’s battery life, which means that you’ll be able to use it for a day or more before you have to recharge it. This naturally depends on your use of your iPhone. It takes less power to play music, but more to navigate the web on 3G. Mophie claims that you’ll get about 6 extra hours of 3G talk time and 12 hours on 2G or 5 hours of extra 3G web surfing, or 9 hours on Wi-Fi.
You can get the Mophie Juice Pack Air directly from Mophie for $79.95(USD). It’s available in black, white or red.
