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.
