Mophie's Juice Pack Helium Made Available for the iPhone 5 for $79.95
Mophie is seemingly one of the more trusted names when it comes to the iPhone and mobile backup batteries, and the company has finally debuted its battery case for the iPhone 5. The Mophie Juice Pack Helium is roughly 13% thinner than the Air version which was released for the iPhone 4S and 4 and is currently retailing for $79.95 directly from the Mophie store, According to the company, the cases should ship in time for Valentineís Day.
The Juice Pack Helium boasts a 1500 mAH battery, which some of you might notice is technically enough to double the 1,440 mAh battery inside the iPhone 5. What this will result in is roughly 6 hours of increased talk time on 3G, or provide another 6 hours of cellular browsing, 7 hours of Wi-Fi browsing, 30 hours of audio playback or 7 hours of movie watching, based on Mophieís statements.
The new iteration of the case will also come in both dark metallic and silver metallic colors, with the dark scheme shipping first. Itíll come packed with the same LED power indicator and forward-facing speaker ports that have made the Mophie line preferred among many over the past few years. As time goes on, more companies are looking to make their products thinner and thinner and Mophie did just that, but ultimately when it comes down to it, if youíre ever stuck in a situation where you need more battery life, having a Mophie Juice Pack can come in extremely handy. An added benefit of having the Juice Pack Helium is that it has a micro USB port to take the place of the Lightning connector, which handles pass-through charging and data syncing just fine. This might come in very handy to those of you who have several micro USB cables (one is included) lying around from other devices and donít want to invest in picking up additional Lightning cables to replace the 30-pin Apple charges from past iOS devices.
