We think it’s a little odd for a company that only makes Apple—related products to label one of said products with the words “Apple Edition.” But that’s what they’re calling the new, slightly different version of their marquis Juice Pack Air iPhone 4 backpack battery.

The difference? The new version has an open-top design, with the small, snap-on part of the case moved to the bottom. Same functions, same 1500 mAh battery, same $80 price.

Why did they do this, you ask? Mophie says the new case was prompted by a request from Apple. Next they’ll be asking that any new iPad cases come with cupholders.
