Mophie Juice Pack for iPhone 6 Plus powers your phone and provides a sleek case.
When I think of battery packs for the iPhone, Mophie is a name that most often comes to mind. When the latest iPhone models were released, I was a bit aprehesive, as many were, about its battery life. As a result, I eagerly awaited Mophie’s release of the Juice Pack for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Even though the iPhone 6 Plus has a more enhanced battery life than previous models, I wanted the option to flip a switch and give my device a little extra power when away from an outlet.
Mophie released the Juice Pack back in January and for the past couple of weeks, I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to test one out with my 6 Plus. The Juice Pack for iPhone 6 Plus provides more than 60% extra battery life for the device. On average, users get up to 17 more hours of talk time, 12 more hours of web browsing, 13 more hours of video playback and up to 60 hours of music playback.
Mophie CEO and Co-Founder, Daniel Huang said, “Our journey to bring the juice pack to consumers for every generation of iPhone continues with our latest solutions for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Since release of the original juice pack for the first iPhone, mophie battery cases have become a necessity to legions of smartphone users. Because we understand how vital these solutions are, our team remains intensely focused on quality and the level of innovative design needed to drive the direction of this industry.”
This version of the Juice Pack features a lighter frame that provides edge-to-edge protection. Plus, it was designed to provide your phone with additional impact protection with its rubberized support points inside the case. This is actually part of mophie’s Impact Isolation System, which gives an increased level of protection against the most brutal impacts.
With me, I prefer to keep my phone caseless. This goes back to when the iPhone 5S was released and I felt that if it were designed to have a case then all the Apple executives would have cases on theirs. Their design was meant to function without a case. That being said, I like battery cases because they have an extra purpose – providing power. To me, the Juice Pack providing additional protection is just icing on the cake.
Mophie has been my trusted go to company for battery cases for many years. I’ve used others, but have always found myself coming back to mophie because the battery pack giant has a way of creating a dependable case that I can trust with any situation.
Mophie gives users three choices with color – Black, White and Gold. I chose to go with the gold Juice Pack because it matches my gold iPhone flawlessly. A lot of thought went into the color selection for these cases and they match perfectly to the style of the iPhone. I really admire the sleek design of the mophie case and for someone who never uses a case, I’ve hardly gone without the Juice Pack for the past couple of weeks.
Besides the style, I’ve been very impressed with the function of the Juice Pack, too. The battery case is designed to provide you with pass through, smart power. By smart, I mean that if your phone is inside the case when you plug it in, your phone will receive power first and then the case. The same is true when you are using the case. When you switch on the case, it will drain before your iPhone battery will. This is actually the method I would recommend as it will end up saving your iPhone’s battery many charging cycles and prolong the life of your battery in the long run.
The mophie Juice Pack keeps me charged the entire day. I will charge it and my phone overnight and flip it on when I get up in the morning. Before the case, I would be down to 6% battery by early evening and now, it’s 2 a.m. before I need to plug in either device.
The mophie Juice Pack for the iPhone 6 Plus retails for $99.95. I would recommend it to any iPhone user.
