Mophie launches juice pack air for iPhone 4

updated 05:00 pm EDT, Tue June 14, 2011

Adds six extra hours of 3G talk time

Mophie has released a new juice pack air, built for the iPhone 4. Like other air models the battery case is designed primarily to be thin. It has a soft rubber finish for grip and shock protection, and provides access to top ports, along with a removable bottom section for docking. Its lithium polymer battery is rated at 1500mAh and should offer an additional six hours of 3G talk time, 36 hours of audio playback, or nine hours of video.

A toggle switch turns the battery on and off, and an LED readout shows how much power is left. The case comes with a passthrough USB cable, which can be used for both charging and iTunes sync. To improve sound quality the case redirects audio from the bottom of an iPhone to the face.

The iPhone 4 version of the juice pack air is currently available in red, black and white. Both GSM and CDMA button layouts are supported. It costs $80, and can be bought online or at retail Apple Stores.

    What's the big difference...?

    It looks similar to the 1st Gen. Juice Pack Air for iPhone4,
    sans the little plastic bridge between the Volume Controls & Silent Switch that is now gone...

    I would applaud them,
    if they could finally turn off the LEDs while the Pack gets charged.
    It is pretty annoying, having it on the Bedside Table and glowing bright all night.

    At Night I am currently attaching some black Tape across the bottom
    to be able to have a good night rest!
    if they would have upgraded it to the Look of the Juice Pack PLUS,
    so that the Volume Keys are easier to operate-
    I could understand the buzz...

    Yeh I have the JPA for iPhone 4, I don't get it either, it's the same to me. I've had it for almost a year, why is this a 'launch'?

    How about

    Can't you just bring a spare battery instead of this big goofy looking thing? Just take the battery off the iPhone 4 and slide on a fresh one and you're good to go. Oh wait, you can't do that with Apple products? What planet do these guys come from?
