Mophie today announced new versions of its Mophie Juice Pack Air wireless charging battery cases for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones, with both following in the footsteps of a long line of battery cases that have given power-users the ability to go longer and further between charges.
Both cases also feature Mophie’s Charge Force wireless charging technology, bringing induction charging to the iPhone even without Apple’s help. Using Charge Force technology is simple. Cases, charging docks and stands align perfectly thanks to the use of built-in magnets, and the cases are also compatible with the normal Qi-compatible wireless charging accessories that you may already have laying around the house.
With charging docks and pads available for very little money, the Qi standard is one that we can only hope Apple will add to the iPhone in due course, without the need for a battery case to be used.
When it comes to the battery power afforded by the Juice Pack Air, the iPhone 7 version packs a 2,525mAh battery while the iPhone 7 Plus flavor comes with a 2,420mAh battery. Mophie claims that the pair improve total battery life of the iPhones to roughly 27 and 33 hours of talk time, respectively.
Those who need extra battery power can pick up one of the Juice Pack Air variants for $99.95 each from Mophie’s website at mophie.com, and they are available in black, gold, rose gold, navy blue and (PRODUCT)RED varieties.
If you want one of those wireless charging stations, docks or what have you, then you will need to pony up the extra cash, but the Mophies are perfectly happy to charge via micro-USB just fine, so don’t worry about littering your home with wireless chargers if you don’t want to.
That being said, accessories are available at a discounted price when bought alongside a Juice Pack Air, so bear that in mind when placing your order.
