Mophie juice pack helium for iPhone5 available from today.
Without fail someone’s iPhone5 runs out of battery in the office every day. The apple iPhone may be the most popular smartphone in the UK but one thing is for sure, the majority of people agree its battery life is terrible. With festival season approaching and the fact we not only use our phones to text and call but also as our lifeline to social media and the camera to capture those special moments, we were worrying how we were going to get through an all-day event without a plug socket.
Having this discussion among friends, the word ‘mophie’ was mentioned and it was the first thing Loaded did the next day. Who is mophie? How can he help us? We were kindly sent a sample of the mophie juice pack helium battery case and put it to the test last weekend at Lovebox, London.
Not only did our iPhone5 last throughout the day of the festival we even had enough battery life to keep us entertained on the train journey home the next day (dirty stop-outs… what do you expect?!). There is a switch on the back of the case you flick on to will find your phone return to a full 80% battery life when needed. Some mobile chargers like this then run out at a faster rate but we didn’t find this at all. The case is only marginally larger than a normal hard-shell phone case so is extremely protective for those fatal sliding-out-of-your-hand moments after a few too many bevvies. Perfect for music festivals or those other times you don’t have access to power.
The downside, we no longer have an excuse for when we don’t want the missus to get hold of us.
The new juice pack helium is mophie’s most innovative battery case to-date, engineered with a 1500 mAh battery for on-demand power, soft interior cushion for full device protection, and micro USB connection for effortless pass-through charging. Additional embedded elements such as a simple toggle switch for charging, discreet LED power indicator, and forward-facing speaker ports for enhanced sound are features that have evolved with each generation of the juice pack, and blend beautifully with the new, slimmed down design of the helium.
The juice pack helium is around 13 percent thinner than previous juice pack air versions released for the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4, and is available in a metallic gunmetal soft touch finish. Users will benefit from up to six additional hours of talk time, 30 additional hours of audio playback, seven additional hours of video playback or seven hours of WiFi internet use (six hours with 3G and LTE).
The mophie juice pack helium is available from Apple, and other online and high street retailers at £69.95 inclusive of VAT. mophie has created a juice pack helium promotional video on its website and YouTube.
