What do you do when you leave your successful battery case startup? If you’re Daniel Huang, the guy that co-founded Mophie, you make ugly electric scooters.
In late August I spent to weeks traipsing through Europe—on very important work assignments in London, and taking in the local culture of Amsterdam. Being a gadget blogger, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to completely load up my European adventure with every conceivable gadget I could possibly need. I wanted to…
I hate cables. I’m not particularly crazy about aesthetics—my bedroom floor is currently covered with a nice, healthy layer of clothing and detritus—but when it comes to the charging cables of the various gadgets I own, I inevitably find myself deeply irritated by their rubbery, Medusa-esque tangles.
Mophie has long made some of the best backup batteries and battery cases you can get. The company’s upgrading its line of Juice Pack cases for the iPhone with a new model that’s waterproof. Not even a toilet can conquer your iPhone now.
Mophie portable batteries are some of the best out there mostly because you can count on them to be reliable. The last thing you want is a cheap backup that fails you. The company's latest top-tier line packs integrated charge and sync cables into a slick design that might actually be worth the hefty price tag.
Mophie invented the battery charging iPhone case eons ago, saving legions of email addicts from mid-day phone death. With its new Space Pack case, Mophie hopes to once again give iPhone users something they've never had before: Extra storage space.
Many of us have been there. You want to take a beautiful picture of a beautiful thing with your iPhone and up pops a very ugly alert: "Cannot Take Photo." Storage full. And without a memory card slot, you can't exactly add more. Until now.
There's no getting around the iPhone 5's abysmal battery life. It's by far the least desirable feature. Mophie hopes to change all that later this month when it starts shipping the helium juice pack, the first "Certified Battery Case Solution" for the iPhone 5. Awesome, right?
It may pain you to add girth to the iPhone 5's slender frame, but when a little more junk in your iPhone's trunk means double the battery life, it's hard to say no. The new Mophie Juice Pack Helium case promises to do just that and be about 13% lighter than the iPhone 4's Air version.
New gadgets take the spotlight at CES. And though we're occasionally blinded by the bright, shiny things, we know where our loyalties lie. Behind the barrage of posts and sprinting between booths, the real stars of the show are the tried and true bits of gear we're using behind the scenes. Particularly that from …
A backup battery for your smartphone is useless without the necessary cables. So Mophie has built both a USB and a microUSB cable into its Juice Pack Reserve Micro allowing you to charge a myriad of portable devices—as long as they're not from Apple.
Mophie, makers of the iPhone power packs which are keeping us running this week, have another shiny iPod Touch-enhancing accessory to show off: The Mophie Pulse. It's a slick case that'll boost your device's volume while enhancing every vibration.
Back in November we saw FLO TV running on the iPhone and weren't sure what to make of it. Their partnership with Mophie makes it perfectly clear: new packs will bring live TV and extra juice to iPhones.
You'd think that smartphones would have made traditional credit cards obsolete by now, but since they haven't (in the US, at least), Mophie's iPhone credit card reader may be the next best thing.
The Gadget: The Mophie Juice Pack battery extender for the iPhone 3G snugly wraps around your phone and claims to more than double the available power.
