mophie debuts ‘juice pack plus’ for iPhone 4; more than doubles battery power

mophie today announced the availability of the juice pack plus, an enhanced capacity iPhone 4 battery case that will more than double the time iPhone users have to rock, talk and surf. The plus is mophie’s second rechargeable external battery case designed for the iPhone 4, and has a 2,000 mAh battery capacity, the largest of any juice pack case produced to date.

In keeping with mophie’s award-winning juice pack design, the juice pack plus is ultra-thin and light-weight, providing protection and now even more power for the iPhone 4 while adding only 1 mm of thickness when compared to the original juice pack air design. The juice pack plus boasts a 2,000 mAh charging capacity, offering iPhone 4 power users with more than double the battery life on-the-go, and features enhanced design elements including a dual injected rubber grip for extra hold.

“The juice pack plus provides the most battery capacity we’ve put into a juice pack battery case, yet it only adds 1 mm of thickness,” said Susan Schedel, vice president of sales and marketing for mophie, in the press release. “The plus is an example of how mophie is constantly working to evolve the juice pack line and provide Apple users with choices and added functionality, while maintaining a smart and sleek design that is expected from iPhone users.”

The juice pack plus for iPhone 4 is now available for purchase on http://www.mophie.com for $99.95, and will soon be available in AT&T stores nationwide. Key features and benefits include:

• More than Doubles Battery Life – 2,000 mAh capacity, advanced battery technology delivers an incredible amount of “juice” in a small form factor, more than doubling battery life while only adding 1 mm of thickness. Users will experience:
• Up to 8 additional hours talk time on 3G; 16 hours 2G
• Up to 7 additional hours internet use on 3G; 11 hours WiFi
• Up to 44 hours additional audio playback
• Up to 11 hours video playback
• Acoustic Sound Enhancement – The juice pack plus design acts as a virtual speaker box, redirecting sound from the bottom of the iPhone 4 to the front, resulting in a richer, fuller sound quality.
• Choice of Color – The juice pack plus is available initially in black, but will soon come in three other colors, allowing you to choose the case that matches your style, including cyan, magenta, yellow and black.
• Pass-through USB – Included USB cable enables you to simultaneously charge and sync your iPhone 4 to iTunes without having to remove it from the juice pack plus.
• Standby/Charging Switch – Features a simple toggle switch that allows for standby and charging mode so you only have to use the juice pack plus battery when you need it.
• Efficient Electronics – Embedded electronics results in no signal interference with the iPhone 4.
• 4 Light LED Battery Status Indicator – An integrated LED status indicator tells you exactly how much “juice” is left and also displays how much time remains during the charging process.

The mophie juice pack plus is now available in black at mophie.com for $99.95-cyan, magenta, and yellow versions will be coming in the near future.

    For normal uses I suppose that’s true, but I’ve found that I not only use my iP4’s still camera a lot (and upload a lot of those photos over battery-draining 3G) but I also use the video camera quite a bit, and that drains the battery like nothing else. I could use the extra power.

  2. I wish I had known about this before black Friday’s sale. I’ve had the black case since it came out and bought my girlfriend the red one which was a preorder but it just shipped out today. Too late. Oh well. You’re right the iPhone 4 battery is great.

  3. • More than Doubles Battery Life – 2,000 mAh capacity, advanced battery technology delivers an incredible amount of “juice” in a small form factor, more than doubling battery life while only adding 1 mm of thickness.”

    I doubt it adds only 1 mm of thickness. It says in the article that the higher capacity only adds 1 mm of thickness when compared to previous juice packs.

    It would be great to double an iPhone’s battery life with a case that only adds 1 mm.

  4. Just bought one today, can’t wait for it to get here, I’m running around so much i need one of these I had one for the 3gs but after reading the specs, it looks like it will be better than the previous ones

  5. I never wanted one of these because they didn’t look overly good looking.. but now seeing this one.. makes me kinda want one since it would double as an iphone case.. though I do like my invisible shield 😀

  6. This would definitely come in handy — and as for losing the dock connector, I can’t make my iPhone car charger work with the “bumper” anyway so I’d probably just slip it out when I’m in the car for extended periods. Would be a lot handier than the external batteries I’ve been using that are pretty bulky.

  7. Standard battery life does not work for a “road warrior”. I have to feed my phone during the day every day. (I used to feed my Blackberry more than once a day. iPhone is better -Duh!) In contrast my notebook battery is lasting much longer as my iPhone is so useful. When in the office I remove the case cover for docking as a matter of procedure. For a traveling business person this is a essential item.
