Finally relieving iPhone 5 early-adapters from their constant anxiety induced by the scarcity of 19-pin chargers, mophie releases the Juice Pack Helium: a protective case/battery charger that’ll increase battery life by 80% (or 1500 mAh.)
That’s an additional six hours of talk time & Internet use on 3G, seven hours of video playback, and 30 hours of audio playback.
The 5 iteration of the uber-popular accessory works much the same as previous versions (which everyone at The Crosby Press carried with their 4s). An included micro-USB cable connects the unit, and four LED lights on the case’s lower back panel will display its charge status. When you’re ready to charge up your phone, flip the standby switch for power on-the-go. If you’re playing music or on speaker, forward-ported speakers redirect audio towards you so that you don’t have to lay your iPhone facedown to experience optimized acoustics.
But the sleek profile of the 5! you cry. How much bulk am I adding to this mobile engineering marvel? Says mophie on its website, “The case is only 2.49 in. x 5.49 in. x 0.59 in. That’s 13% thinner than even our ‘Air’ model for the iPhone 4, which, as the name implies, was pretty damn skinny.” Consider yourself soned.
