Mophie Juice Pack Helium iPhone Case Protects And Powers

A couple of phones ago, I ran into an abnormally crappy battery. Thinking myself clever, I found a double capacity replacement online. What I didn’t realize is that it would double the size of my phone as well as its power.

The Mophie Juice Pack Helium is an ultra thin protective case for iPhones that somehow houses a 1500mAh battery that will boost battery life by 80 percent without adding an ounce of bulk. Its elegant, thin design makes it the perfect accessory, easily fitting into any pocket or handbag. You’ll enjoy hours of extra batter life and the peace of mind that your phone’s precious bits are well protected.

Like me, you’re probably wondering how in the world they hide a powerful battery pack inside a case that’s no thicker than any other on the market. Thanks to six years of R&D, Mophie Juice Pack has an extremely dense yet thin, rechargeable lithium polymer battery inside. When you slide your phone into the case, a connector at the base plugs into the port at the bottom of phone. Flip the standby switch on the back from red to green to start charging your phone. After using up all the power in the juice pack, just recharge it with the included micro USB cable for more on-the-go power.

The fact that it’s USB compatible means that the Mophie Helium is the perfect complimentary accessory for the variety of solar phone chargers now on the market. The juice pack is rechargeable for over 500 full cycles, and is guaranteed not to interfere with speakers, microphone, camera, or wireless syncing. $79.95
