Mophie Juice Pack 3G
Mophie on Monday unveiled the Juice Pack 3G, an updated version of its battery extender for the iPhone, offering new 3G owners similar enhancement to the device's run time. The Juice Pack 3G allows users to operate the iPhone 3G for an extra 350 hours on standby, while allowing for an additional six hours of talk time (12 on 2G) and internet, another eight hours for video playback, and 28 hours of audio. Mophie is offering the Juice Pack 3G for $100, and it will ship in September.
"Since its debut, power users of the iPhone 3G have demanded a product that will boost battery life for extended on-the-go use," said Ross Howe, Sales and Product Development Director for mStation/mophie. "Juice Pack 3G delivers this exceptional battery enhancement while keeping the unique style and feel of the iPhone intact."
The Juice Pack 3G boasts protection from short circuits, over-charging, and excess heat, with smart power management that drains charge from the pack before resorting to the iPhone's internal battery. Four LED lights indicate charge in the unit, and a USB pass-through allows users to charge both the Juice Pack 3G and the iPhone simultaneously, as well as synchronizing content.
