Mophie Juice Pack Plus, An iPhone 5 Battery Case With More Power & Protection

If you're a power user, chances are your iPhone 5 is in dire need of an energy supplement. The kind that actually works. Mophie is your dealer, and now it has a third battery case to fill its lineup and it's called the Juice Pack Plus. Unlike the company's previous released Juice Pack Helium and Juice Pack Air iPhone 5 battery cases, the Juice Pack Plus is a $120 case with a huge emphasis on drop protection thanks to its rubberized shock-absorbing band that acts as a protective bumper. Of course the Plus moniker is for added power, which means the Juice Pack Plus features a respectfully decent sized battery capacity of 2100mAh, that's an extra 400mAh compared to the $100 Juice Pack Air.

Mophie is claiming that the Juice Pack Plus will more than double the battery life of the iPhone 5 by up to 120% for all-day usage, but we'll reserve judgement until we get our hands on it to test that claim for ourselves though. The Juice Pack Plus for the iPhone 5 is the thickest of Mophie's battery cases coming in at 0.70" thick. The case features integrated buttons including a silent/mute switch for easy operation, and is available now in matte black, red and glossy white color options for $120.

A near-identical Juice Pack Plus battery case rival - the Atomic Plus by Maxboost, offers a massive 3000mAh internal battery capacity while sharing the same exact thickness at a more reasonable $70 price point. We're disappointed that Mophie isn't stepping it up in the performance to price ratio department, because clearly it can be done.

Mophie Juices Up Their Juice Pack Plus

Mophie has come out with a newer version of the Juice Pack battery case for the iPhone 4 called the Juice Pack Plus, which packs a 2,000mAh battery capacity that promises to double your iPhone 4's battery like and some. Don't get too excited though, we've reviewed Case-Mate's Fuel Max battery case for the iPhone 4 which also packs a 2,000mAh battery under it's hood, but in real life usage we only got less than a single full charge. Let's hope the folks at Mophie live up to they're technical claims. The new Juice Pack Plus now has a rubberized band for better shock protection unlike the slimmer Juice Pack Air for the iPhone 4. You can pick this battery case for $99.95 in black right now with more colors to come soon. Hit up the source link for more details.
