  • 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.

      Also, if anyone thinks you can fool me by making up a story and pm'ing, you're wrong. If that happens again, I will have to ask the mods to perm ban you!!!
      Considering that the giveaway requires people to write publicly posted begging letters, getting a few private ones should come as no surprise.

      I dont think anybody is MORE qualified than anybody else, but i can say that having this would be nice =]

      I too am on my phone nonstop. Texting and listening to music mostly playing games in between! =]

      I have the iPhone battery strings --> Numbers theme from Cydia and that is the best way to track the battery. I hate when it hits like 4 percent. But i like having the fair warning. Will this case keep up with that?

      I sure hope i get RANDOMLY selected =]

      M- The reason I need one of Your Mophie Juice Packs is as follows:

      "I just can't live without one",

      I dreamt about owning an iPhone and eventually I got one. Now I'm dreaming of owning a Mophie Juice pack, just so I can use my iPhone all day without having to charge it for an hour or two during the day. I can just about live with charging my iPhone every night but topping that charge up during the day is soooo annoying and uncool.

      If I don't win this Mophie Juice Pack I'll just have to continue carrying my portable generator (borrowed from my mate) around with me everywhere. which doesn't do a lot for the image of my beautiful iPhone 3G, so please help me out.

      Thanks Marc.

      Would love to get it. As a student, my iPhone is the key component of my day. I use the calendar, record hours of lectures, do some texting, some calling, listen to music. It all adds up, and usually before the end of the day, my battery is at 10% and I need to put things on hold just in case I need the phone for something important.

      I need this because I'm a full time Graduate student and I work with kids who have Autism. My schedule requires me to always call, text, and e-mail. Don't get me wrong I have plenty of games as well, but my phone is a necessity in my life. I often find myself charging my battery twice a day just to get it to last for the entire day. I literally use it from 7 am to about 1 am the next day. Another reason why I need it is because the kids that I work with love the iPhone, they enjoy playing with it and they really find it to be something unique.

      Could I edit my post above to say that if I don't get this lots of children will die and the little birdies will never sing again and the sun will not come up tomorrow?

      My original post is more true but it does seem to be degenerating into a contest so.....

      I could definitely use one of these because I need to check my email all the time for my work at a rock climbing gym and also for the hours of wonderful distraction by games.

      I would love to have that extra juice for my phone. Being away from my girlfriend is hard and one of our few modes of communication is with my iPhone. We talk and sometimes I use instant messaging apps which makes use of Edge that drain the battery pretty quickly. Hopefully I get this and be able to keep in touch with my loved one until the day ends without "interuption" (no power). Thanks a lot. Goodluck to all other contestants.

      I am in the data warehouse business and i pretty much work from my iPhone 3g. Unfortunately, with such high usage, the battery barely lasts the 8 hr work day. This would be perfect for me. thanks

      I need it because my kids keep playing games on it all the time and when it's really important it's always out of battery.

      I am a father of two boys, 2 and 10 months. Im a full time nursing student, and a disabled veteran. My phone dies everyday about halfway through the day. Right now Im just getting by on my disability from the Marines but I hope to finish nursing school sometime in 2010. The problem is I use my phone for contacting my wife at home and texting and palringo and email. I am from California and moved out to Georgia for cheaper living. But now all my family calls me all day and my phone usually dies about 3 pm... 2 hours before I get home and then im attatched to the wall at night. I know its a long shot and long story but one of these will help me feel more confident that I can contact my wife if anything were to happen to me on my way home or if anything were to happen to my kids while I was at school. thank you so much just for listening to me ramble.
