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.
