There are many people who are fans of Mophie’s Juice Packs battery cases and have been waiting for the company to come up with a Juice Pack for the iPhone 5. Way back in November we told how the Mophie website was allowing potential customers to sign up for notification about a Juice Pack for the iPhone 5. Today we have news that the Apple iPhone 5 Mophie Juice Pack Helium is now available and should give an additional 6 hours of battery life.
The Mophie Juice Pack Helium is compatible with the iPhone 5 and its Lightning connector and features a 1500 mAh battery for around 80% more battery life. On 3G this will give you 6 more hours of talk time or with 3G or LTE, 6 extra hours of web browsing, or 7 hours with WiFi. The iPhone 5 can be left in the case while recharging and the Juice Pack Helium will charge both the pack and the iPhone 5 simultaneously with the included micro-USB cable.
Although of course the Juice Pack Helium will add a little size and weight to your iPhone 5, it won’t add a significant amount of bulk to the streamlined iPhone 5, as it is 13% slimmer than previous Mophie Juice Packs. Dimensions are 2.49-inches x 5.49-inches x 0.59-inches. It also has forward-ported acoustics to maximize your iPhone 5 audio experience and an LED power indicator.
The Mophie Juice Pack Helium – iPhone 5 can be ordered at Mophie here priced at $79.95 with a 1-year warranty. The Dark Metallic option ships by February 14 while a Silver version should be available by the beginning of March. We’ve embedded a video below this story that will give you a look of the Juice Pack Helium.
