  • 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!

      M - i guess i really dont need it but it would be nice to have without spending money i play games, browse safari and freq check for things in app store and cydia, i also create my own themes and what not and i have noticed that constantly using winterboard to check on themes have been a drainer, and i also use the phone for geocaching to post to logs and read others logs for hints and such, it would be nice to have more assured battery power out away from a charger!

      M- Why don't I need this? Haha.

      My work day starts at 8am when I head to work. I am a Fraud Prevention Analyst for a Bank, and my iPhone 3G is my email device! Usually, by 4pm, the battery is almost out from all my surfing and replying.

      Too bad my day doesn't end. From work, I head directly to my other job, where I am a Paramedic. I use my iPhone to get texts from Dispatches, and use it to email some more for work. My phone usually during all this time is on the charger, and it is so inconvenient.

      This Morphie Juice Pack would be great!

      Hello I use my phone for business and go thru the battery about mid day and I find myself running for the charger. I'm also on beejive a lot and sometimes when there isnt any internet I would use the phone with pdanet for the internet which drains the battery fast. I hope I win this thing =).

      M-Due to the not so well built battery, my phones battery has been decreasing ever so slowly, and it would only keep its charge for about 5 hours now on standy with all the programs unloaded, i just need that extra boost so i can have a normal phone.

      Wow, surprise. I am a person who's been developing extra battery pack design.. and just found someone else already made it. I guess actually my design is far better than this, so I'd like to get the case and disassemble it to see how it looks inside. I am only developing external side of it so I probably need a technical aspect of the case inside.

      Thanks

      I have lost my bearings in the woods and had to rely on the 3G's GPS, the Juice pack would allow me to keep my direction and position current so I don't get lost. And because I would have the extra power I would be able to record my travels via GPS for reviewing later, or in case I need to back track. Plus I've been good and haven't been a post whore, I only post when I need too

      Hello I need the mophie battery adapter because the iPhone 3g battery sucks plain and simple. I think everyone needs one and apple should have given it's supporters a more useful product for the high price we paid. If I win. This mophie battery pack I would use my iPhone the way I wanted to use it when I bought it without worry that my phone will die before lunch time everyday. We just got 3g service in Maine last month so I just learned how crappy the life of battery without mophie please help me !! I need to get back to the way life should be !!

      I drive for UPS, and work always seems to outlast my battery. I can never keep my iPhone charged all day while I'm working. I even asked my mechanic if he could hook-up a car charger outlet for me in my truck, but that just made him laugh. I could def use this extra juice. Thanks. -Ron

      I am a police officer in a busy city. I am on the phone all night long sometime for business and sometimes to talk to my family. I use a few of the apps to help with finding information for the job and i'm not the best speller so during some of the long reports i write the spell checker is running a full speed. As you can imagine my battery is dead if not close to dead by the end of my shift. An extra batter pack would help and with money being tight I just don't have the extra to pick one up.

      Thanks for the consideration

      Cool from you to give this away!
      I'm a web developer and photographer, I'm using my iPhone a lot on my way to and from work especially for browsing, chatting, voipping and showing off my work.

      I also use it for remote controlling my laptop when doing presentation for photography talks using AirMote/AirMouse. And it's a pain when you've spent a lot of time browsing and calling to suddenly realize that you might not be able to use it too much and may have to switch to manual control of the presentation.

      Thanks

      very nice, i tried one out myself personally and the only complaint i had was it was a little on the large side.
      but it of course is apple certified as well and more importantly gives u a little more than double your regular battery life. =]
      Thanks for letting us know.... I was thinking of buying one of these myself. I know it adds a little bulk to the phone but what I like about it is it still protects the phone and it extends the batteries life as well.... the other one does not protect the front of the phone....

      Hello,

      i am always using my iphone 3g to download cracked apps update, chat, surf safari and play games all the time. This goes for me and my friends who are always playing with my phone and seeing its features. so sometimes when i am out with my friends my battery runs out and i need it to call and play when i am bored. So please i really need the Morphie Juice Pack cuz its too expensive and my parents don't trust and "LIKE" buying stuff from the internet. In addition, i live in Kuwait. And those cool gadgets don't reach here.

      That is the reason why i need it.
