Part of the appeal of having an iPhone is its slender figure. It feels great in hand, can sit in a pocket without looking funny, and fit in any bag. That makes it annoying when you buy a backup battery that’s got the look and feel of a brick.

That is why we dig Mophie’s Powerstation 8X battery. It’s a powerful 15,000mAh backup that’s also as thin as the slimmest smartphones, but is good for pretty much any chargeable device. And right now, you can get a Mophie Powerstation 8X Battery Pack for just $79.95 at Cult of Mac Deals.

It’s worth underscoring that, at 15 watts, this battery packs serious output power. That means it’s fast, and has enough juice to recharge a typical smartphone up to 8 times. With dual USB ports, you can split the power between two thirsty devices. Pass-through charging means you can charge the battery and your devices at the same time when you’re near a wall outlet. Plus the included Mophie Power app monitors and manages the battery life of your phone and battery. As batteries go, this one manages to pack in all the features we could want into a fraction of the usual space.
