Mophie Juice Pack Air arrives for the iPhone 5, offers up to 8 hours more talk timeWell known accessory manufacturer Mophie has announced its latest accessory for the iPhone 5. The Mophie Juice Pack Air is the second iPhone 5 accessory to offer prolonged usage by packing an additional battery into a small form case specifically for the iPhone 5.

The ideal case for the everyday 9-5er and for those whose day doesn’t always end when they leave the office. Lighter and thinner than previous generations, but packed with more power to make sure your phone can keep up with your busy lifestyle. Up to 100% extra battery with the flip of a switch. Turn on the case when your battery runs low to stay fully charged through the late nights.

From the dawn patrollers to the parents rushing to get the kids off to school. From the busy day filled with meetings and presentations to the day off filled with errands and friends. The juice pack air ensures you have more than enough power packed into a streamlined, protective case so you’re ready to take on the day.

The Mophie Juice Pack Air comes with a 1700mAh battery neatly hidden away in a very nice looking iPhone 5 case. It charges via the included micro USB cable which can be plugged into any computer or “Made for iPhone” power source

The case also comes with a pass-through 3.5mm audio jack so you can still plug in your headphones when the case is fitted to your iPhone 5. The Mophie Juice Pack Air also works as a virtual speaker box enhancing the sound of the iPhone 5’s built in speaker. If you want to sync your device you can do it wirelessly but the case would need to be removed if you want to tether it to a Mac or PC.

The Mophie Juice Pack Air will cost $99.95 and will be available in white, black or red; with black available first on March 7. If you want to hold off for the red or white case then you will need some patience as they will not be available until March 22.

Mophie Juice Pack Air arrives for the iPhone 5, offers up to 8 hours more talk time


I bought a Helium (should have waited perhaps for the Air), and it has worked well, except for the headphone jack. The bottom plate is a *tiny* bit too tall compared to the fat part of the headphone cable, so that it is difficult to seat properly standard Apple earbuds firmly in the jack without removing the bottom of the Helium. It can be done, it is just a bit hit or miss, whereas if the bottom portion of the helium was perhaps a mm or two shorter, it would be goof-proof. Some third party headphones work better, because the fat part of the headphone cable is a few mm longer than on Apple's Earbuds.

i cancelled my order for the silver helium just now on mophies customer service and ordered a white mophie juice pack air... im willing to wait a month.... since they told me my helium wasnt shipping til end of march... so its not like im losing out much
