Juice Pack Air, iPhone 3G

Mophie ready to ship its thinnest external battery for the iPhone 3G, the Juice Pack Air. Doubling as both an external battery and hard-shell case, the device features a rechargeable 1200mAh lithium-polymer battery that is claimed to provide up to 270 additional standby hours, an extra 4.5 hours of talk and internet time, up to 20 hours of audio playback and roughly 6 hours of video playback. The hard shell is designed to help protect the iPhone from everyday use, with three available colors including black, white and purple.

Juice Pack Air provides a standby mode that enables users to choose when they want to use the additional battery support. The external battery can be charged while syncing the iPhone using an included USB cable. Four LED status-indicators show users how much power is remaining in the external battery.

The Juice Pack Air can be purchased for $80. All pre-orders will be shipped on April 30th, while backorders will begin shipping on May 1st.

    what about new iPhones

    Just wondering if releasing this new product when they already have something in the marketplace considering that their will be a new iPhone in June-July? Could this be a sign of confirmation of no form factor changes? Remember, it was the cases for the iPod (fat) Nano that gave credibility to the photos. That said, there were the case pre-sales in January for the then non-existent iPhone Nano. It is possibly a game done by Apple to identify which case manufactures leaked the info and dimensions to Kevin Rose for the most recent iPod Nano. Kevin Rose had technical documents for third party members of the "Made for iPod" program.

    Going ahead with this revision makes me ask the question of whether or not they have confirmation of no major form factor changes. Lens in the same place, same size, and jacks and buttons in the same place. Could be wrong. But be on the lookout for new case announcements as we run up to WWDC.
