Mophie Announces A Third iPhone 5 Battery Case With More Juice


Since the beginning of February, Mophie has gone from having zero iPhone 5 battery cases to having three. Today the popular case maker announced yet another battery case tailored for the iPhone 5, the Juice Pack Plus. The case costs $120, and it contains more juice than its predecessors.

Remember when Mophie announced its first iPhone 5 case and everyone rejoiced because it had taken nearly six months? Then a second iPhone 5 battery case was suddenly released a couple weeks later with a slightly larger battery and higher price tag. It looks like Mophie has found a formula that works.

The Juice Pack Plus is definitely the company’s most extreme case to date, with 2100mAh of power that translates to a 120% charge. A shockproof band with anti-scratch guides wraps around the case’s exterior. All Mophie iPhone 5 cases require a Lightning-to-microUSB cable to charge, and there’s also an included headphone jack adapter.

Here’s the current breakdown of Mophie iPhone 5 cases:

  • Juice Pack Helium with 1500mAh battery for $80
  • Juice Pack Air with 1700mAh battery for $100
  • Juice Pack Plus with 2100mAh battery for $120

Everything is available on Mophie’s website. The Plus model comes in white, black, and red.
