  • Mophie Juice Pack, Juice up your iPhone 3G! (Giveaway Ended!)


    The new iPhone 3G comes with the new 3G connectivity and a new problem namely Batter Drainage. Mophie has taken the challenge to fix it with their new Juice Pack, which is the first Apple certified “Works with iPhone” battery and uses the Apple’s 30-pin dock connector. Now, this might not be very useful for everyone but for a hardcore user like me who’s always surfing and chatting, it’s a must!

    The packaging is just wonderful and especially the gift packaging I received. The battery backup comes with a Mini USB 2 cable for charging and a small instruction manual.

    Well, I previously owned a Storm Battery Backup and used it all the time with my 3G iPhone but it didn’t provide me enough “Juice” which was a big downside. Another fault was that it used to loosely hang on my phone but the Mophie terminates both of the problems for me!



    It’s a great concept that doubles as a battery backup and a case too. It feels quite nice in the hand with the extra rubber grip on sides. The color scheme of the case is zippy with the green colored inside. Its design is nice with the black matte finished body on the outside and green soft material inside. The edges are thick and curvy which ensures no harm to the phone. The pack is quite bulky but it’s obviously better than the ‘non-case’ type extra battery. Another great advantage of the design is that you can use the Mophie anytime and all the time and even when calling!

    But, the main feature as the company advertises is that it provides “more than double” power to the phone and as per my experience, this is quite true. With Wi-Fi switched on all the time and heavy chatting on Beejive, but rarely any calling, a fully charged Mophie combined with a fully charged phone lasts the whole day, till late night and it takes just 4 hours to charge! Another great feature of this pack is that while your phone is plugged, you can sync it too, which means that you don’t need to remove this everytime just to sync. It also sports a great new feature namely “Intelligent Power Distribution” which enables the use of Mophie instead of iPhone’s battery while charging at the same time! Also, some other small features include battery indicator on the back and uses a Mini USB 2 port to charge.

    Now, like everything else, it has some negatives too. First of all, as a case, it is bulky and doesn’t provide full protection to the phone, which means that you could harm the when you drop it, unlike if it’s in a decent protective case. Also, the back attracts lots of lint, which makes maintenance difficult. Other than the above, the only issue left is the price point (as always). Now, everybody won’t like to shell out those 99 bucks for just an extra battery but for the hardcore user like me, the extra buck does not matter for that much needed juice!

    You can get it off Mophie for $99 but for those who still feel it is too expensive, I have an extra Mophie Juice Pack 3G for giveaway! To get it, just comment with M- Why you need it (mandatory). The winner will be selected randomly by 7th February and the pack can be shipped worldwide. Finally, for those who do not own an iPhone 3G or just don’t want this, comment normally without the M and beware, I will verify the winner before sending prize.

    GIVEAWAY ENDED!

      Can't believe all of the people that like this one... I rather have the incase one.... it protects the hole phone for the same price...... Wonder what the difference is between the both of them? I know Apple has the incase ones in their stores.....as I was going to buy one.....

      Last of all, Mophie provides more power as power slider doubles the phone's battery EXACTLY but Mophie adds a bit more than double. Moreover, the green color is zippy as i said.
      according to incase the PowerSlider is suppose to give 120% of battery life? broken down specs are all on the link. and as far as the screen protector goes, mine never pulled on my zagg invisible shield. it did although pull on my buddy's screen protector because it was miss-aligned.

      Do people not read? THE CONTEST IS OVER!
      Is that your real address? I hope not. Not too smart to post your address on a public forum

      Heck I need it because it's FREE!
      But seriously, on a long airplane flight, it'd sure come in handy for watching movies on the iPhone.
      Looks like a great product.

      And you can't even read the previous post to yours?

      - M - I use my phone for a lot of visual entertainment at work, for myself and colleges and at home of course, the battery obviously doesn't last that long. There are times where I am chatting with 4-8 people at the same time This would be a great product to have, and i would put it to MAXIMUM use but that's not my decision to make. I still am extremely grateful that you guys are still one of the leaders in EVERYTHING iPHONE!!!!!!

      Thanks for the hard work!
