iPhone 5 battery life boosted by new mophie juice pack helium case

The iPhone 5 battery life is to be given an added boost as mophie unveils the new iPhone 5 mophie juice pack helium, a protective iPhone 5 case that adds 80 per cent to the handset’s energy reserves.

A leading manufacturer of battery boosting smartphone cases, mophie has officially unveiled the iPhone 5 juice pack helium, the first iPhone 5 battery case that offers added staying power as well as keeping the Apple branded handset safe from knocks and bumps.

“While other brands were busy publishing renderings and making handmade prototypes for CES, we were dialing in production and preparing for market,” Ross Howe, Vice President of Marketing at mophie said. “We always strive to set new benchmarks for excellence in the portable power category, and have accomplished that with the development and release of the juice pack helium, the world’s first authentic battery for iPhone 5.”

iPhone 5 mophie juice pack helium Features
Giving the iPhone 5 battery life an 80 per cent boost, the newly unveiled iPhone 5 mophie juice pack helium is currently the only certified iPhone 5 battery case confirmed for launch, with the protective cover hiding its integrated battery within a ultra-thin, edge-to-edge casing.

Playing host to a soft interior cushion for improved impact protection, the hard outer shell of the iPhone 5 mophie juice pack helium offers security against knocks, drops and scratches, whilst an integrated 1500mAh battery almost doubles the iPhone 5 battery life.

Allowing users to access on-demand power reserves as and when required, the new iPhone 5 mophie juice pack helium can be recharged via microUSB connection, with the protective cover, which is 13 per cent thinner than its equivalent iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S counterparts, offering power readings through an LED indicator. What’s more, a built-in forward-facing speaker helps bolster the handset’s audio abilities.

Coming with a metallic gunmetal grey finish, the iPhone 5 mophie juice pack helium case will see users’ iPhone 5 battery life given an addition six hours of talk time, 30 additional hours of audio playback or seven more hours of Wi-Fi based internet use.

The latest in a long line of battery boosting products from mophie, late last year the company launched the first Samsung Galaxy S3 compatible battery boosting case, doubling the Samsung Galaxy S3 battery life with the Samsung Galaxy S3 mophie juice pack.
