Mophie Juice Pack Plus charges into Apple retail chain

updated 07:50 pm EDT, Tue June 19, 2012

Battery booster case doubles capacity, comes in seven colors

Purveyor of iPhone accessories Mophie's Juice Pack Plus is now available at both Apple's online and retail stores. The battery pack adds a 2000 mAh battery in a slim case, adding only one mm of thickness to the iPhone. The add-on battery case solution provides both protection for the iPhone and effectively doubles the device's energy reserves.

The clamshell case has a pass-through USB connector, allowing the user to simultaneously charge and sync the iPhone without having to remove it from the case. The extra power provided by the case can allow up to 8 hours of additional talk time on 3G, 16 hours of talk on 2G, 7 hours of 3G internet use, 11 hours of wifi, 44 hours of audio playback, or 11 hours of video playback.

Electronista has reviewed the Juice Pack Air, a similar product for the fourth-generation iPod Touch. Recently, the Juice Pack Pro, a Mil-Spec tested case was released by the same manufacturer. The Juice Pack Plus also comes in a special outdoor edition with camouflage color scheme and a special GPS application to assist in navigation.

Seven colors are available, with five options now, and two further colors in June. The case retails for $99.

    1mm thickness?

    I don't think so. It's more like 1CM thickness..

    Roughly doubles but well worth it

    Only had English ruler with me. But thickness of phone is roughly 7/16th of an inch, phone with case is 13/16th of an inch.

    However, as a user of these products for 3 years, they are well worth it. The Juice Pack Plus is very good, had it about 8 months, and the charge still lasts the day. I don't start using the phone's power till about 4pm, and I am a fairly heavy user (although I don't use bluetooth much).

    Probably

    ... a case of clueless macnn editors, as usual. The product adds significantly more than 1mm to the thickness of the phone.

    That said, mophie products are well worth it, well designed and well executed. I just don't buy them because I don't like the iPhone to be too thick.
