Apple’s iPhone battery case isn’t the first time it’s ‘bumped’ a thin design

To the derision of the entire internet, Apple’s new Smart Battery Case for the iPhone has an inelegant hump on the back. Turns out, this isn’t the first time Apple design chief Jony Ive and his team have “humped” a thin design. The Twentieth Anniversary Mac, released in January 1997, was one of the first major projects given to […]

Mophie Unveils Juice Pack Plus For iPhone 5, Its Biggest Battery Case Yet

The iPhone 5 already has a pretty decent battery — at least mine does — but because it’s non-removable, there’s no easy way to bring it back to life if the battery dies when you’re out and about. It’s best to make sure, then, that this doesn’t happen — and Mophie’s new Juice Pack Plus can help you with that.

Featuring a large 2,100mAh battery, it’s Mophie’s most powerful battery case to date, and it promises to give your iPhone 5 an additional 120% of battery life.

That’s one complete charge from 0%, plus an extra 20% to keep you going even longer. I don’t know about you, but that would probably give me a good three to four days of use before I had to charge my iPhone or my Juice Pack Plus at all.

But of course, these battery cases aren’t aimed at average users like me; they’re aimed at power users who have their iPhone in their hand almost every minute of every day, who use their device so much they don’t get a full day of energy.

So here’s what 2,100mAh means to those users. You’ll get an additional 10 hours of talk time on 3G, an additional 10 hours of Internet browsing over 3G or LTE, an additional 12 hours of Internet browsing over Wi-Fi, or up to 50 hours of music playback.

Like all good battery cases, the Juice Pack Plus has LED lights on its back to tell you how much energy it has left, and it’s protective, too — with a dual-texture, rubberized, shock-resistant band around its edge that’ll keep your iPhone safe during those inevitable drops.

The Juice Pack plus comes in three colors — there’s a black one that’s shipping in 1-2 days, a white model that ships on May 22, and a (PRODUCT) RED model that ships on May 31. All three are priced at $119.95 and are available to order from Mophie now.

Mophie Announces A Third iPhone 5 Battery Case With More Juice

Since the beginning of February, Mophie has gone from having zero iPhone 5 battery cases to having three. Today the popular case maker announced yet another battery case tailored for the iPhone 5, the Juice Pack Plus. The case costs $120, and it contains more juice than its predecessors.

Remember when Mophie announced its first iPhone 5 case and everyone rejoiced because it had taken nearly six months? Then a second iPhone 5 battery case was suddenly released a couple weeks later with a slightly larger battery and higher price tag. It looks like Mophie has found a formula that works.

The Juice Pack Plus is definitely the company’s most extreme case to date, with 2100mAh of power that translates to a 120% charge. A shockproof band with anti-scratch guides wraps around the case’s exterior. All Mophie iPhone 5 cases require a Lightning-to-microUSB cable to charge, and there’s also an included headphone jack adapter.

Here’s the current breakdown of Mophie iPhone 5 cases:

Juice Pack Helium with 1500mAh battery for $80 Juice Pack Air with 1700mAh battery for $100 Juice Pack Plus with 2100mAh battery for $120

Everything is available on Mophie’s website. The Plus model comes in white, black, and red.

PowerSkin Unveils New Silicone Battery Case For iPhone 5

PowerSkin has today announced its new silicone battery case for the iPhone 5, which features a 1,500mAh battery that promises to provide you with up to 8 hours of additional usage on Wi-Fi, up to 6.5 hours of additional talk-time, and up to 182 hours of standby time. It’s priced at $80 and it’s available to order now from the PowerSkin website.

Unlike most battery cases for the iPhone, which are made of plastic, the PowerSkin’s silicone design makes it soft and shock absorbent, providing you with all-round protection as well as extra juice. It has a power button, so you can control when it charges your device, and four LED indicators that tell you how much life is left in it.

The PowerSkin comes with an earphone extender so that you can continue to use the iPhone’s EarPods — or any other 3.5mm headphones — as you normally would. It also guarantees against short circuit and over-charge, according to PowerSkin, and provides “temperature protection” — whatever that means.

I reviewed a PowerSkin battery case for the iPhone 4 back in September 2011, and I was a big fan of it. Like all battery cases, though, it ruins the sleek and sexy design of the iPhone. The iPhone 5 version adds 7.62mm to your device, which means it ends up being more than double its original thickness.

That’s a small price to pay, of course, if you need your iPhone’s battery to last a long time.

You can order the PowerSkin for iPhone 5 now via the source link below.
