One of the biggest complaints about the iPhone is about its battery. The battery life of the iPhone isn’t as great as it could be. Worse of all, the iPhone doesn’t allow you to easily swap out batteries, meaning the only to recharge your phone is to plug it in and wait for it to charge.
Unfortunately, most people don’t carry chargers around with them. Not only is it a huge inconvenience, but the cords get tangled and lost inside your pocket or bag.
What if you didn’t have to deal with such an inconvenience? What if you could completely recharge your phone anywhere, without having to deal with those annoying cords? What if you could double your iPhone’s battery life with the flick of a switch?
It’s now possible with the Mophie Juice Pack iPhone Case.
The way the Mophie Juice Pack works is simple. Instead of plugging in your phone, you plug in the case. The case works the exact same way as a regular iPhone charger would – you plug one end of the cord into the case, and the other end into any USB hub – whether it be a PC or wall charger.
Plugging in the case will charge both the phone and the case simultaneously, giving you two main benefits.
First of all, your phone will effectively charge a lot faster – the phone will charge at the same rate as it did before, but the case is charging at the same time.
This means that if you only have a few minutes to charge your phone, you’ll get twice as much battery power, because the case itself is like a rechargeable battery.
When you put the phone into the case, it plugs the phone into a charger, the same way many docking stations work. On the side of the Mophie Juice Pack is a switch. When you flick the switch, the phone will start using the power from the case to charge your iPhone.
From our tests, the Mophie is capable of fully recharging the iPhone, and a little more.
As a heavy user of the iPhone, the device’s battery can drain incredibly fast. If you have a Mophie, you never have to worry about it, because you can recharge your phone any time, anywhere.
So we know about the device’s main feature, doubling the iPhone’s battery life. But cases are meant to protect the phone, right? The Mophie Juice Pack does a great job at that as well.
Although not as protective as something like the Otterbox Defender, the Mophie Juice Pack is made out of a very tough plastic. It fully surrounds the device, meaning all areas are protected. We’ve dropped it a few times, and the phone has yet to show any damage.
But that doesn’t mean the case hasn’t.
No product is ever perfect, and the same is true with the Mophie Juice Pack iPhone case. After dropping it, the paint around the areas where the device fell has begun to chip, which is a shame because the Mophie Juice Pack is a beautiful case otherwise. Additionally, the cord has some problems, which Mophie plans to fix relatively soon. The cord tears fairly easy, and occasionally has trouble staying in the charging port (after 6 months of heavy use).
However, the pros of the Mophie far outweighs its few problems. The Mophie is our case of choice when traveling, due to its beautiful, protective design, and a rechargeable battery that effectively doubles the iPhone battery life.
If you’ve ever wanted to increase your iPhone’s battery life, there’s no better choice than to pick up a Mophie Juice Pack.
