Since the debut of the smartphone, countless brands have popped up offering every kind of imaginable accessory, from the indispensable waterproof iPhone case to the, well, the toilet paper dispenser iPod dock. One of the brands of iPhone accessories that we really love is Mophie. Their Juice Pack and Juice Pack Air battery cases protect your smartphone and give you up to an extra 80-100% of battery power. So not only is your precious iPhone or Galaxy S4 protected from dents and dings that daily life delivers, you can go nearly twice as long as normal between recharges. We like Mophie products so much, in fact, that every one of the smartphones that our over 200 delivery and service teams use is outfitted with a Juice Pack. Which is why we extra excited to get a look at the new Mophie Space Pack at CES.
The Mophie Space Pack builds on the genius of the Juice Pack by adding additional storage space—either 16GB or 32GB—to create a product unlike anything currently available. However, due to iOS restraints, adding storage is not a simple plug-and-play affair. To use the additional storage, users will need to download Mophie’s Space app, which includes an integrated file manager, camera app and media player. Users will have to access the app anytime they want to access or share any media stored in the Space Pack. So, not a totally seamless system, but it’s the only one of its kind and it’s a clever workaround to a problem that plagues many smartphone users. And for potential iPhone 5s buyers, it can be cheaper than the price difference between new iPhone models.
Like the Juice Pack Air, the Space Pack is slim and ergonomic. It adds some length and depth to the iPhone body, but still slides in and out of pockets with ease and is comfortable to hold. You’ll also find the same 1,700 mAh battery pack, giving you double the power of the iPhone 5’s built-in power pack. Doubling both storage and run-time means a lot less recharges and memory dumps, which is great when you’re away from a power outlet or access to The Cloud. For road warriors and other prolific iPhone users, and especially for the Instagrammers and other voracious consumers and producers of media, the Mophie Space Pack looks to be the best single accessory available.
According to Mophie, the Space Pack will start shipping in March, but pre-ordering is open now. For more info, call us at 888-228-5800 and ask for one of our Apple sales specialists.
