Mophie Keeps You Juiced

Mophie’s Juice Pack Air for iPhone and iPhone 5s keeps your mobile juiced long after sundown.

The Good


Mophie’s Juice Pack Air does what it says on the box; extends your phone’s battery life. In fact, it does it really well. It’s also sturdy enough to protect your phone if you drop it, and considering the fact that needing to extend your battery life often coincides with drinking a lot of beer late at night, that’s a big old tick in the pros column. Not sure how well the Juice Pack Air fairs when your drop it on the ground, but at least your phone will be in one piece, right?

The Bad


The Juice Pack Air turns your sleek, sexy iPhone into a chunky gold brick. However, it’s a matter of priorities; if staying connected and contactable while your out ranks above having a phone that you can proudly prop up on the table next to your schooner, then by golly, you better get yourself a Mophie Juice Pack Air.

The Bottom Line


You have to be wary when looking at a product like the Mophie Juice Pack Air. It’s a slippery slope to Gimmickville when it comes to the phone case/charger category. Fortunately, this is not the case where the Juice Pack Air is concerned. It does exactly what it needs to do – huzzah!

A Little Extra


The Juice Pack Air allows users to simultaneously charge their phone and the JPA itself via USB. It can increase talk time by up to 8 hours, audio playback up to 40 hours, video up to 10 hours, internet use up to 8 hours on 3G and 10 hours on WiFi. It also has a handy LED Power Indicator.
