The new mophie juice pack is just for the Galaxy S5

mophie-juice-pack-galaxy-s5-1

Cases with backup batteries are usually designed for the iPhone, but mophie’s newest case is for the Samsung Galaxy S5 phone.  This case covers the back and sides to protect your phone, and it wraps slightly around to the screen to keep it lifted off the tabletop should you lay the phone facedown.  Inside, there’s a 3000mAh battery that gives you double the battery life.  The juice pack doesn’t interfere with the phone’s NFC or S Beam functions.  The back of the case has LEDs that display the backup battery’s charge level, and there’s a switch that you flip when you need a charge.  You don’t need to remove the case to charge the S5; a microUSB port in the bottom of the case allows you to charge and sync your phone; when the phone is charged, the backup battery charges.  The mophie juice pack for Galaxy S5 is available in black or white for $99.95.  You can pre-order a case from mophie now for shipping on September 8th.

    Hi Janet, Hi Julie, Hi all,

    I myself have two juice packs: one for my old iPhone 4s and one for my iPhone 5.
    The idea is great, but the extra bulk just really killed it for me.
    When I was on vacation this year I had a chance to really start to use the Juice Pack in real situations (no access to a socket for very long periods at a time) and I have to say they did good. Otherwise I am glad not to have to use them on a daily basis.

    My point is: why on earth did all the manufacturers hop on this “thinner is better” craze?? First off the flat cell phones are somewhat ackward to handle (as in: nothing to hold in the actual curved palm of your hand) – just to loose a few grams on weight? C’mon!!

    The ideal cell phone would be with a nicely curved battery as a ergonomic piece that would be nice to hold in the fill of your hand, with the extra effect that you would get significantly more uptime. Also saying this, because in the next 5 years we are not going to see a significant hike in battery power.

    Remember the Nokia 6310i? They had juice to go for at least 2 weeks (Ok, so no mini computer was inside)…but you get my drift.
