Earlier this month, we informed you of the announcement of Mophie’s Juice Pack Helium, which offers a 1,500mAh protective battery boost while also seeking to maintain that slick, svelte form factor which helped you fall in love with the device in the first place. Today, alongside the Juice Pack Air (same product but 1,700 mAh and optional red color variant), the product is now available for purchase over at the Mophie website, with pricing at $79.99 for the Helium, and $99.99 for the Air.
Battery packs aren’t in short supply in the mobile market, particularly where the iPhone is concerned. But one of the main issues with the vast majority of current offerings is the added bulk. If your only real concern is having enough battery, then you probably won’t mind carrying a brick around in your hand, but if you still want to be able to comfortably hold your handset while the battery pack is attached, the Juice Pack Helium and Juice Pack Air have you well covered.
If you would consider yourself a power user of your iPhone 5, you’ll probably want to opt for the $99.99 Juice Pack Air, which offers an almighty 1,700 mAh battery – more than contained within the iPhone’s own battery – to keep your beloved handset ticking over even after the day’s out. Those just dissatisfied with how quickly the iPhone 5′s battery runs out and in need of an extra little push will probably want to go for the slightly cheaper Juice Pack Helium, which at $79.99, still offers a sizeable 1,500 mAh of battery power.
Both variants are aesthetically pleasing, and neither seek to ruin the natural beauty of the iPhone 5 itself. The Juice Pack Helium comes in metallic silver and metallic black, while the Juice Pack Air arrives in black, white or red. The white and black models look as though they’d perfectly suit their respective iPhone tones, even better so than the metallic shades of the Helium.
Whatever your poison, these packs will ensure you’re not left out and about without sufficient levels of battery life. Each variation of the Juice Pack can be purchased right now from Mophie.com, but please check the shipping dates before purchasing, since they vary from seven days to six weeks.
